10 buys for you and your bump
By Anna Heaton, 15 May 2017
It's fair to say that there might be some stages during your pregnancy when you're not feeling your cutest. You're body is doing some seriously, crazy impressive stuff, but you still want to look like yourself while it's doing it. Here's 10 pieces to help you and bump do you this summer, without looking off-piste...
1. Fresh prints
You and that off-the-shoulder shape are basically in a long-term relationship, so don't give it the cold shoulder just because you're expecting. Add a fun print and a loose cut and you're wedding-guest ready.
2. Check you out
The gingham love is only getting more intense, and this red picnic-check is a summer dreamboat. Plus, smocks are totally breezy so prepare to revel in the comfort.
3. Girl with a pearl earring
For days when you feel like basics are your only option, consider these spenny-looking earrings for your fast-track to cool-dom.
4. Total jeanius
These jeans are carrying a too-good secret, they might look like your regular low-rise denim, but underneath is a stretch waistband that'll make your ever expanding bump v happy.
5. Poolside, baby
If a babymoon is on the cards, or your no.1 hobby is swimming, this tankini has got you. The halterneck and deep V are gonna have you looking fire, while the top will keep you covered and grow with you.
6. Totally frilled
Cooking up new life does not stop you from repping trends. Fact. Let this asymmetrical blouse with cute frills be living proof. Summer BBQ, nailed.
7. Simply red
For days when you're feeling flat, do not underestimate the power of lipstick. This feel-good trick will last throughout your pregnancy (unlike the maternity jeans you bought at week nine).
8. Jersey girl
Jersey might become your pregnancy BFF, so let's make it interesting. Join the lilac club and rep the 80s shape that's winning summer.
9. That's a wrap
A floral wrap dress is a dream day dress. Fancy and flattering, with loads of room to manoeuvre, this will be your #1 homie whatever trimester.
10. Slide through
Your feet are feeling it, right? Let sliders be your saviour. Reason one? Comfort. Reason two? Erm, have you seen how pink they are? Done and done.
