Are you pregnant and dreaming of being a style goddess this party season? Probably not, I think it’s safe to say you have more important things on your mind at the moment. But this doesn’t mean that now you’re pregnant you have to swap festive glamour for plain and comfortable. With so much choice nowadays it’s easier to stick to your own style and avoid those elasticated waistbands!
With so many maternity dresses, such as these, available online and on the high street all you need to do is decide which ones will suit you and your growing bump. One tip is to opt for skater styles or an empire waistline, meaning that you’ll be able to wear it throughout your pregnancy. At the moment pleats are your friends! They’re more comfortable, and allow space for your growing bust and bump. For a versatile Christmas party season style, look for timeless dresses in neutral shades such as black or beige. A block colour with flowing fabric will flatter your bump, and it needn’t be boring. Classic black dresses can be dressed up with a statement necklace and drop earrings for a chic, evening look.
If you can afford to choose something a bit more festive (and less wearable past January 1st!), opt for an on-trend berry, wine or luxurious purple dress. These are the shades of the season. With these dresses keep accessories to a minimum to avoid overdoing it. But we’re not forgetting about the importance of comfort - Stretchy fabrics and gathered waists mean that you won’t be squeezing your bump into tight dresses. This is all the more important as there’s no telling how big you’ll get. You should be able to enjoy your special occasion, whether that’s an office Christmas party or family dinner, without feeling frumpy or being uncomfortable.
