How to dress when you're pregnant

We're here to help you through all your pregnancy fashion dilemmas.
How to dress when you're pregnant
So you've got a bump and getting dressed just became a whole lot trickier (read: almost impossible). But never fear, being pregnant doesn't mean you have to give up on dressing how you want. You just need to know how to get around it. Stylist and Veet style liaison Kelly Smythe shares her tricks.

Stay true to your style

"Steer clear of maternity wear and stay true to whatever style you usually wear. Every brand allows a belly - it’s all about just knowing the styles. Your fave chain stores will usually stock looser options which you can easily wear throughout your pregnancy. Think relaxed pants, with an elastic waist, a fitted singlet from and your fave blazer or fun cropped-to-waist lightweight jacket."
Flaunt your tummy
Hey, if you've got it show it off! "Don’t be afraid to accentuate your stomach when you’re five-six months pregnant. When going out for dinners or to any formal occasion, wear something form-fitting, opt for a stretchy material as it will show off your bump and figure and layer on top if need be!" 

Wear comfy (but stylish) shoes

"Opt for a funky flat ankle boot or fabulous flat strappy sandal. Give up the heels post 6 months as one it’s dangerous and two from personal experience, your feet swell so much and your back wont thank you for it!"
You can still wear jeans!
You can still be friends with jeans, you just need to know the right brand. "If you’re a jean girl, try J-Brand skinny maternity jeans. These jeans are designed with an extra low front ride and back high-rise to support the stomach, whilst the soft elastic side and waist panels create comfort throughout your pregnancy." 

Avoid prints

"When choosing tops and dresses, remember to opt for solid colours such as brights or black/white. Prints of any kind are not the most flattering when carrying a bump."

But you can accessorise with prints

"If you are a diehard pattern/colour fan try adding a scarf. They are great as a layering option and add some pop to a neutral palette, whilst creating the illusion of a longer and leaner silhouette."
