When you’re newly pregnant and wanting to attend an important event, if you’re anything like me you feel dread at trying to find a beautiful outfit, that not only fits your ever expanding pump, but that you feel gorgeous in too. There isn’t the greatest selection of maternity clothing on the market anyway (in my opinion), I know I found it difficult to find pieces that I didn’t feel ‘frumpy’ in last time I was pregnant, but when it comes to glamorous dresses, then your options are even slimmer.
Scouring the internet today for inspiration, I came across this beautiful maternity Swing Dress from ASOS and I thought it would be perfect to show just how gorgeous maternity wear can be (take note fashion retailers!) and team it with a few accessories, so that all you mum’s to be can feel inspired that yes, we too can look gorgeous and glow with glamour!
For this little look, I used the following items, all from ASOS:
- Maternity Swing Dress with Contrast Front & Dipped Hem, £38
- Hampstead Heeled Sandals, £42
- Liquorish Quilted Cross Body Bag, now £26 from £48
- Shourouk Leitmotiv Marlen Necklace, £202
- Stila Colour Balm Lipstick; Brights in Betsy, £16
This maternity look would certainly make me feel a million dollars. There’s plenty of room at the front of the dress to hang loosely over your bump and allow you to feel comfortable, but super sexy at the same time. When I showed my husband, he said ‘wow’, so it must be nice!
Do you find maternity clothing as a whole pretty tricky? Or do you have a little gem of a store where you buy all your pieces? If so, please share it with me!
