If you’re going to be investing in some maternity clothes, you might want to take a look at this style guide to keep in mind the big fashion trends for summer this year. We’ve featured some fantastic pieces below which we know are too gorgeous to miss out on.
1) Plenty of Colour – You don’t want to be a shrinking when you’re pregnant! It’s time to tell the world you’re pregnant and show off your bump. Our pick this season is the Eve of Eden Pink Tiered Dress. The hot pink looks fantastic when you’ve got a bit of a tan and the length and spaghetti straps will show off those legs and shoulders. Add heels and a clutch and you’ve instantly got the perfect evening dress. An added bonus is that the top layer hides the nursing access in the under layer. Genius! Another cute colour-popping dress is the Dandelion Print Maternity Dress. The emerald green colour is just divine and the silver print is too cute!
2) Lace Inserts – lace has been a big trend this year and you can certainly see why. It’s chic, elegant and feminine. Our favourite dress for a baby shower is this blue Dotted Lace Maternity Dress. Fitted across the bust with a belt under the bust, it will show off your pregnancy curves beautifully. The spot lace insert is a really modern take on the lace theme.
3) Shirt Dresses – This style of dress is always in fashion. It looks smart, but doesn’t feel too dressy when you’re off to a BBQ or weekend lunch. This one has so many funky details and a belt which can be worn under your bust when you’re pregnant or around your waist post-pregnancy. Mums love the fact that the press studs allow for easy breastfeeding access.
4) Funky Prints – Polka dots have been a big fashion story for a while now and they’re still as popular as ever. Indulge your passion for polka dots with a cute polka dot tankini, skirt or even cute still, this polka dot playsuit (which is a big trend in itself)! Our favourite print item this season is the scallop print straight skirt. Comfortable but chic, the stretchy fabric is guaranteed to make your bottom look good!
As you can see there are plenty of options to keep you looking hot (yet feeling cool) and stylish in Australia this summer. Enjoy!
