When the days get longer and the first buds appear on the trees, you can be sure that spring is in the air. With the warming weather comes a chance to spruce up your maternity wardrobe and stay stylish through your pregnancy while staying on budget andon trend.
Look for key transitional pieces. Long cardigans, leggings and low boots can bridge the winter and spring months by providing multiple options for chilly mornings mixed with warmer days. Start your day with a cardigan or jean jacket – no need toworry about whether or not they will button over your growing belly now that the weather is warmer. Wrap a scarf around your neck for added warmth if the weather calls for it, but you can easily stash it in your handbag when the day heats up.
Leggings are the go-to maternity staple since they are comfy, provide endless options, can be dressed up or down and come in an array of colors and patterns. For spring you can opt for more than just the traditional black leggings. Look for on-trend florals,jean style leggings and even vegan leather. No matter what look you choose, leggings are sure to be an essential maternity wardrobe foundation.
The white shirt was seen on all of the spring fashion runways, in varying lengths and styles. This is one of those instances when a true maternity version is what you need. With more room across the torso section of the shirt, a button downis possible to pull off when it’s made for your expanding middle. The white shirt is a great basic piece that can be paired with leggings, and jeans, and also dressed up with a blazer and a great necklace for a more formal style.
Springtime is meant for dresses. Easy to put on, always flattering, and a simple one-piece solution to creating an outfit, a fresh springtime dress can make you feel feminine and pulled together in one simple step. Wear a dress with tights or leggingsand low heeled boots while the weather is still cool, and then lose the lower layers and pair with low sandals once the temperature rises. Try a dress with the super trendy cutout shoulder silhouette, which looks modern but not too risqué forwork. You can easily throw a cardigan or jacket over the dress to create different looks from the same dress.
Of course, no wardrobe is complete without shoes. Luckily this spring is showing very maternity friendly styles such as the more polished athletic sandal, clogs, and flat mules. The glammed up athletic sandal can be found in patent leather,a multitude of colors, and a variety of soles. The adjustability of the straps make these a perfect pregnancy shoe – just don’t forget to indulge in a pedicure now that you’re showing off your toes!
Don’t let your changing figure stop you from looking current and stylish. Embrace the warming weather and let springtime put a spring in your step!
