Maternity Style: 9 Lessons From the Chicest Pregnant Ladies

Latest news

    Ah, pregnancy. It’s one of life’s most magical experiences—what the female body is capable of producing never ceases to amaze. It’s a time of dramatic changes on every front, not least in the wardrobe department, as your body prepares to accommodate another little human being. Even the most dedicated best dressed list-toppers can find themselves in a quandary when it comes to being comfortable and pinpointing a maternity style.

    A few months into your gestation, it’s likely that a lot of what you already own may become redundant, but it doesn’t mean that you have to start dressing completely unlike yourself or solely wearing maternity clothes. Knowing what to look for (where waistlines sit, or how to choose between cropped or oversized jackets) might actually make shopping for this new—if relatively brief—chapter of your life fun.

    We’ve scoured the maternity wardrobes of some of the chicest pregnant women out there to bring you their tips for staying true to your fashion fanaticism with a bump… Scroll through the pictures below for all the inspiration and key pieces you may be looking for.

    Style Notes: Danish street style star Pernille Teisbaek is proof that oversize shapes can be fashion forward rather than feeling like you’re relenting into unwanted options. Her denim-on-denim look at the shows didn’t add bulk, especially when balanced out by a little flesh. Take her lead and go the whole hog with equally directional accessories—such as sunglasses and unexpected ankle boots.
    Pernille Teisbaek’s denim jacket is by Balenciaga, but we’ve spied a not-too-dissimilar version in Topshop that will last you well after your pregnancy.
    Style Notes: If you’ve been dreaming of cashmere joggers, let Susie Lau make a case for their outwear-appropriate cousin: the velour version. An elastic waist and baby bumps make the best of friends, and as velvet is the fabric of the season, you’ll look totally on point. Just remember to keep the look smart—like Susie with her handbag and polished shoes—if you don’t want to feel out of character.
    Can’t stretch (excuse the pun) to Susie’s Margiela pair? Try these from good old M&S instead.
    Style Notes: Editor Anya Ziourova demonstrates that leather bikers can work during pregnancy—as long as it’s a cropped style. Here it adds edge to a very girly Dior minidress. A short cut won’t crown your bump, and you’ll wear it for years to come—pregnant or not.
    Victoria Beckham’s biker is the ultimate treat to oneself. 
    Style Notes: The supremely well-turned out Eva Chen balances a short, floral dress with flat shoes for a city look that’s practical yet pretty.
    This covetable style has a drop-waist so it can accommodate all sorts of bump sizes.
    Style Notes: Elle associate editor Harriet Walker dressed her bump loudly and proudly in figure-hugging dresses—and why shouldn’t she?
    Our favourite e-tailer is bursting with covetable maternity buys.
    Style Notes: For stylist Miriam Sternoff McKnight, it was this asymmetric dress by U.S. label Hatch, which she wore under shakeouts and T-shirts.
    Worth every penny.
    Style Notes: Think you’d like to try the tonal trend? Oh yes, you can! Being with child is no excuse… Just look for stretchy, forgiving materials to keep your style game high. 
    A maternity saviour—that’s not even from the maternity rails. 
    Style Notes: An oversize or waterfall-cut coat like Natasha Goldenberg’s is all you need to spruce up or create contrast from body-conscious basics. Designed to fall around the body, wear them open and continue to do so long after you’ve given birth.
    This Zara style is cut on the large size, so it’s perfect.
    Style Notes: Susie Lau has found comfort in Topshop’s Lucas maternity jeans, thanks to their super-soft waistband.
