It’s already hard enough to roll out of bed in the morning and plot an outfit from head to toe. But when there’s a tiny human growing in your tum, we can assume the process becomes akin to rocket science.
How does one retain sartorial sophistication while there’s a bun in the oven? Between the morning sickness, expanding abdomen, and other woes – it seems near impossible. That is, until we turned to a few of the trendiest ladies on the influencer scene for some serious inspiration. Embracing that coveted pregnancy glow and rocking the bump is the call to order.
Here’s how these fashionistas are sporting killer wardrobes while preparing to enter motherhood. Impressive? We think yes.
MUM-TO-BE: Brook Testoni | @brooketestoni
THE LOOK: For when you’re no longer keeping the baby news under wraps, opt for the wrap skirt and flaunt the bump. Gingham and black are a fail-safe minimalist combo, with Brooke adding fine bling to up the ante.
MUM-TO-BE: Geneva Vanderzeil | @apairandaspare
THE LOOK: The denim off-the-shoulder, free from restrictions and perennially in style. Golden, chunky hoops elevate the look for a day-to-night outfit trajectory.
MUM-TO-BE: Arielle Noa Charners | @somethingnavy
THE LOOK: Aslip dress allows for billowing, ball-gown feels without any uncomfortable cinches or potential dress mishaps. This fuchsia hue? A regal showstopper.
MUM-TO-BE: Molly Perdue | @mollys_musings
THE LOOK: Print pandemonium with an above-the-knee cut fulfils Summery picnic sojourns. And while belts or conventional accessories are no longer on the cards, Molly sports a wrap-style headband to complement a painterly colour scheme as well as keep fly-aways at bay.MUM-TO-BE: Ali Fedotowsky-Mano | @alifedotowsky
THE LOOK: Don’t pack the active wear away just yet. Monochrome sets paired with fresh kicks will champion the curve, and get you embracing some gentle workouts with a bub on board. MUM-TO-BE: Nadia Bartel | @nadiabartel
THE LOOK: After Nadia’s announcement of baby no.2 on the way, we turn back to this black & gold rendition of a bump-friendly races look. A strapless body-con may not seem like an obvious choice from the pregnancy style files, Nadia proves us wrong. And that Amazon-esque crown….swoon.
MUM-TO-BE: Bethanie Garcia | @thegarciadiaries
THE LOOK: Felt hats, nautical stripes and tan sandals culminate in a dreamy, laid-back and incredibly breathable uniform for a day doused in sun. This above-bump waistline is a must.
MUM-TO-BE: Tara O’Farrell | @tara_makeup
THE LOOK: Floral fanfare that allows for some colour with a deep-V and thigh-high split. Killer shades are all you need to accompany this technicolour print.
MUM-TO-BE: Anka Trien | @ankatrien
THE LOOK: Preppy and pastel are the pillars of Anka’s whimsical . Exchange heels for sneakers, but add workwear flair with a longline blazer and detailed drop dress.
MUM-TO-BE: Lilly Ghalici | @lillyghalici
THE LOOK: Lilly is no stranger to a glitzy ensemble. This all-white garb is accentuates the bump while retaining a dreamy flow.
