Summer Fashion Staples to Rock While Pregnant
Being pregnant in the summer months may be uncomfortable, especially when the temperature starts to soar, but this is no reason to start dressing in old baggy t-shirts and leggings.
There are tons of different fashion trends to try throughout the summer, but there are also some fab ones that you can still rock while pregnant. Check out these fashion staples and make them work with your pregnant summer style:
Smock tops have been popular with pregnancy style for years, but this is because they are so versatile and there are tons of different designs to choose from. They cover an expanding waistline very well and are nice and loose for those hotter days.
Smock tops can be dressed up or down so they are easy to wear in the day or for a nice evening out. Simply choose a few different colours and styles and wear with maternity jeans or jeggings.
This embroidered Empire Smock Top from ASOS is one of our favourites:
Dungarees may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to summer style, as they can sometimes be quite heavy and therefore just end up making you feel hotter. There are however a range of different dungarees you can get including dungaree shorts and skirts.
The great thing about dungarees is that you can wear a plain and simple top underneath and then wear them either done up or folded down. You can also roll up the bottoms to make the legs as long or short as you feel comfortable with.
These maternity MOTO short dungarees from Topshop are great for summer:
Satin is a lovely material as it is light and comfortable, while also being smart and stylish. Whether you are attending a wedding and need to look smart or just want to look fashionable yet comfortable at your neighbour’s BBQ, satin dresses are ideal.
Choose a colour and design that feels summery, such as florals and pastels, then team your dress with some metallic sandals and some jewellery and you will definitely turn heads.
This lovely floral MAMA satin dress from H&M is stylish and comfortable:
Shoes can often be the hardest part when it comes to summer style through pregnancy. It’s too hot to wear your comfy UGG boots, but you also can’t bear the idea of squeezing your feet into a pair of kitten heels.
The best thing about ballet pumps is that they are flat and comfortable but come in a huge range of different colours and styles. Choose a bright, summery pattern and wear them with jeans or a dress.
These black Hawaiian print pumps from New Look are a bright and sunny addition to any wardrobe:
Although the idea of wearing denim may instantly make you shy away when you’re pregnant, the selection of maternity jeans on the market is actually very good. Whether you want some maternity skinny jeans or some stylish boot cuts, there is something available for all tastes.
Once you have your denim in place, you can choose a comfortable and summery top to go with them. There are some lovely patterned t-shirts on the high street, and you could even choose a longer tunic to pair with your jeans if you want extra cover.
These relaxed skinny jeans from Next come in a range of colours and work well with lots of different styles:
When it comes to the summer months, a maxi dress should be a staple in your wardrobe. They are super comfortable and there is always room for your bump to expand as you get further through your pregnancy.
There are lots of different ways to wear a maxi dress, including accessorizing with a belt and adding a cardigan or blazer. How you wear yours will depend on how you feel most comfortable. Maxi dresses are great for beachwear or parties, and easy to dress up or down.
This beautiful Mamalicious maternity maxi dress from Dorothy Perkins is perfect for the summer and comes with a lovely tie belt:
