Pregnant Diva

Pregnancy: The time in a woman’s life where literally everything changes. As it is exciting, so it is petrifying. The last year was a baby boom year, so much so that, that beyond loungewear, maternity fashion also got an upgrade.

Let’s talk about Divas like Kareena Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Meghan Markle and Emily Ratajkowski. These women were glowing and still are. Their fashion sensibilities are “ with it” and pregnancy has not seem to have deterred them. On the contrary, they are the ultimate pregnant Diva inspiration.

While some posed in swimwear, and some in the nude, it just depends on one thing ultimately. Comfort.

Style and comfort need to go hand in glove.

Pregnancy involves a lot of psychological and physiological changes, therefore , there will be no compromise on comfort.

A few things to keep in mind while choosing maternity wear :

There are countless brands which specialise in maternity wear. It is recommended to do some research.

The softer the fabrics the better you will feel. Changing hormones makes the body sensitive, it is highly advisable to stick to soft fabrics and airy silhouettes most of the times. This is also contingent on the weather.

Inner wear should also be a source of ease. Maternity special delicates are dime a dozen. Look for support and ease.

During full term there is pressure around the ankles and knees. Movement also becomes slightly restricted, therefore try wearing outfits that are free around the ankles and shoes that are lightweight.

A few looks for all the new Mommies :

Whether you are full term or have just become a new mom, fashion should always be on your side.

1.       Co – Ord – Co ordinates are the new fashion go to. This basically is similar fabric top and bottom. Pick a pair of Indian printed pants with a short roomy kurta and pair it with a Kolhapuri chappal.

2.       The Kaftan is back. This one piece can be the sleepwear, resort wear and brunch look. All depends on what you pick. A tie and dye number will look fabulous paired with some neck baubles : link chains / multiple chains . Carry a crossbody to complete the look.

3.       A Bodycon dress if you are comfortable showing the bump. This can also be teamed with your Bae’s shirt for a chic upgrade. Keep the shirt unbuttoned. Top with a cap and sunglasses.

4.       The Cape Dress. This can be worn with glamourous earrings for a night out scene. A colour like Navy will be a good choice.

5.       The kalidar kurta – It is a classic. Pastle tones or a pure white, paired with maybe a scarf and some ethnic jewellery is an all time favourite look.

6.       The flowy maxi dress – Go all out on prints and colours, leave the hair wild and open. Pair with hoops and do the beautiful in trend colourful eyes look.

7.       The Dungarees – Choose a soft denim or linen dungaree. Pair with a Singlet or a Ganjee. Tie your hair in a top knot. Wear a pair of sneakers, and you are all set for a lunch scene with the girlfriends.

8.       The jumpsuit – Yes. A comfortable jumpsuit screams diva and lounge at one go. Pair it with a bucket hat for all your shopping sprees.

9.       The shift dress – This dress is a basic fashion staple and a must have in every wardrobe. Team this with a short bomber jacket, cute shoes and a chunky watch.

10.   The Slip dress – Most trending and fashionable. Satin and lacy spells sensual. Top it with a knotted shirt for a naughty look.

Let’s talk about shoes and accessories.

Many women wear heels all throughout their pregnancy. This is a subjective decision. If you can pull it off, and your doctor is fine with it, why not. If not heels, there are many more options to pick from. Shoes should be an integral part of a maternity wardrobe. Having three to five different kinds will take you beyond nine months.

Accessories –

This is high on the list. As we all know, accessorising can change any look for the better. The trick is to know what to match and when to stop. Less is always more.

Think about earrings, rings, neck pieces, scarves and hats.

 Cheers to a glowing and stylish pregnancy.
