Pregnancy is a major milestone for every woman who chooses to become a mother. With your hormones going haywire, it can be difficult to cope with the sudden and unexpected changes in your body – and all fashion-related matters (understandably) take a backseat during this magical nine-month period. But, believe it or not, there’s hope for the pregnant and sartorially challenged.
Today, Savoir Flair is dissecting the impeccable pregnancy style of mom-to-be Dalia Nsouli. While the petite and perennially chic “It” girl is about to be a first-time mother, she manages to nail maternity style, looking trendy and polished in one outfit after the other. Read on to see how Nsouli’s valuable style lessons help tackle three common pregnancy wardrobe woes.
Mama Drama #1
"I want to hide my arms, but don’t want to look stuffy."
Long-sleeved, off-shoulder tops and dresses are great for simultaneously hiding the arms and elegantly showing off a hint of skin.
Mama Drama #2
"I look fat."
First of all, no you don’t. You look beautiful. But if you want to create the illusion of a taller, slimmer, and leaner silhouette, turning to vertical stripes is your best bet. Stripes are essentially the fashion universe’s solution to most wardrobe woes.
Mama Drama #3
"Nothing fits, but I don’t want to keep buying clothes that I’ll only wear once."
If you have to shop, rely on wrap skirts as they are adjustable and can definitely be worn post-pregnancy. Smock dresses and oversized shirtdresses are also great as they’re easy to wear and look effortlessly relaxed. Plus, they have plenty of room to accommodate a growing belly.
