We’ve covered maternity fashion hundreds of times before on Bellyitch. Here are some quick tips on turning a plain and drab maternity dress or tops and pants into a chic and stylish look in 5 easy steps.
Step 1: Drape a playful, colorful, scarf around your neck or in hot months use a corded belt to tie loosely above your belly below your breastbone for an easy and carefree empire look. Check out this link for tips on how to 45 different versatile ways to tie a scarf.
Step 2: Wear some cool aviators, Jackie-O or other fun shades in tortoise shells or another funky color or design.
Step 3: Carry a whimsical, structured or colorful tote or shopper’s style bag that is big enough to hold all your stuff and is useful when you don’t feel comfortable experimenting in color, patterns and designs.
Step 4: Add on chunky bracelets, conversation rings, bold hoops, or oversized double strand pearls to accessorize and accentuate your look.
Step 5: If you are comfortable, toss on a straw fedora, a Bo-Ho knit hat or wide brim hat or a newsboy cap to show off your eccentric and eclectic side, but if you are not comfortable wearing these hats, show off your free-spirit in leather gladiators sandals, strappy heels with ankle wraps or colorful wedges or espadrilles.
Good luck! Get out there and get your preginnista on!
