How To Style Maternity Clothing
Congrats mama-to-be! Becoming a mother is one of life’s biggest moments and you deserve to celebrate your nine months in true pregnant style.
Now that you’re expecting, you’re probably wondering how to stay stylish while building out your wardrobe with comfortable options for your growing body. And trust us, finding polished maternity clothes can be tough! Until now.
There’s no need to settle for frumpy, oversized, or expensive maternity clothing. Whether you’re running errands, working, or enjoying social engagements, we have plenty of fashionable maternity-friendly styles that are as stylish as you are!
To help you navigate how to style maternity clothing, we’ve put together some of our favorite tips and inspiration for dressing you and your gorgeous baby bump.
aim for versatility
Maternity clothing can be expensive, especially if you’re buying pieces that are designed to only be worn while pregnant. So when investing in new pieces for your maternity wardrobe, versatility should be at the top of your mind.
It’s always important to start with the basics. Instead of choosing trendy maternity clothes, invest in pieces that are high-quality that you’ll be able to wear over and over again – pregnant, post-partum, and beyond!. Offered in a wide range of colors, the Francoise ¾ Sleeve Dream Knit Tee makes a perfect layering piece. Simple and classic dresses, like The Sheryl Dream Knit Dress is a great staple for every maternity wardrobe.
Style your basics with maternity-friendly items you already have, like jackets and open-front sweaters. Professional maternity clothes can go a long way in your wardrobe. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy a wide variety of outfits without breaking the bank.
A lot of maternity clothing has a limited life span. The last thing you want to do is fill your closet with clothing that you won’t be able to enjoy in a few months. By choosing versatile styles, you’re doing your part to minimize the amount of clothing in rotation.
dresses are your friends
ICYMY, we LOVE dresses. Whether flowy or fitted, dresses make the perfect addition to your collection of maternity clothing. Easy to wear, dresses are especially helpful for keeping expecting mothers cool during the summer months.
The best part? You can easily style them up or down for every occasion. Choose relaxed styles that accommodate your growing belly or pick materials that have a little extra stretch.
For an office-ready look, try our Malta Ecovero Dress. This versatile and chic dress is made from upcycled and repurposed fabric and will be an office staple long after your baby comes. The removable tie makes it simple to make room as your belly grows. Add a pair of ankle booties and you’ll be the most stylish working mama around. Who said professional maternity clothes couldn’t be fashionable? We sure didn’t.
shop your closet for bump-friendly styles
One of the most sustainable options when it comes to trendy maternity clothes is shopping your own wardrobe. You might be surprised how many bump-friendly styles you’ll find in your closet. Flowy and stretchy materials are some of the best pieces to repurpose into maternity wear. Wearing clothes that you already love is a fantastic way to consume consciously and avoid excess waste.
But if you find that you need to buy new pieces to fit your growing belly – that’s totally okay! Every piece in Amour Vert’s maternity-friendly collection is designed with sustainability in mind. From upcycled fabrics to ethical wool, you can breathe easy knowing that you’re doing your part to protect our planet’s (and your baby’s) future.
You can also explore ReAmour for pre-loved pieces that are ready to breathe new life into your maternity clothing collection.
choose pieces that will grow with you
A lot can change in nine months. The biggest change? You’ll have created a beautiful baby!
But in the meantime, you and your body are going to go through so many miraculous changes. (No really – isn’t it amazing what our bodies can do?) When choosing your maternity wardrobe, it’s important to pick pieces that will grow with you.
One of our favorites is the Astrida Maxi Wrap Dress. With adjustable straps and a tie waist, this dress will take you through every stage of your maternity journey.
Don’t pick maternity clothing you’ll only get to enjoy a handful of times. Treat yourself to bump-friendly pieces that you know you’ll wear again and again. And once the baby arrives, most of our maternity-friendly styles are timeless pieces that will transition easily into your post-partum closet.
show off your bump
You’re becoming a mom! This is one of the biggest milestones in your life – it’s time to celebrate! Don’t be afraid to bare it all and highlight your bump. If fashion icons like Rihanna can rock the most stylish clothing with a bun in the oven, you can too! Experiment with different silhouettes so you can channel your inner pregnant pop-star vibes.
Grab pieces like the Lux Sleeveless Dress or the Agnes Dream Knit Top. These styles will keep you comfortable but also make your bump the star of the show. The subtle and flirty v-neck detailing of the Angela Dream Knit Top is another great bump-conscious option that will make you feel like one hot mama.
You’re doing pretty amazing stuff, like growing a whole other human inside you! You deserve to feel comfortable and oh-so-cozy in the process.
Fortunately, Amour Vert’s collection of maternity-friendly styles means you never have to choose between style and comfort. (At least until your little one grows old enough to borrow your AV favorites!)
For ultimate stay-at-home comfort choose a style from our luxuriously soft Dream Knit collection. The Mayr Dream Knit Tee comes in a range of stunning colors and the flattering neckline will keep you on-trend while staying comfy. Pair with the Skylar Paris Rib Joggers for a cloud-like outfit that you’ll never want to take off. Add some sneakers and you have the perfect look for running errands or shopping for your baby registry.
Headed to the office and need professional maternity clothes? The unbelievably soft Miley Dream Knit Dress is perfect for balancing comfort and professionalism at the same time.
embrace your personal style
The pregnancy glow is real. This magical time is the moment to truly embrace your unique style. Wear whatever makes you feel your best.
Looking for new ways to dress up your bump? Invest in a new handbag or some new pieces of jewelry. Accessories are a fantastic way to shake up your personal prego style. The great thing about styling with accessories is that you’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come even after the baby arrives.
Figuring out how to style maternity clothing can be a challenge for expecting moms – it’s a totally new adventure! Amour Vert makes trendy maternity clothing and professional maternity clothes accessible and sustainable. Why spend money buying clothing that you’ll only wear for a few months while pregnant when you can invest in eco-friendly styles that will have you looking and feeling great?
