Maternity Clothes Are Overrated!

22Oct09

If you let eldest Kardashian, Kourtney tell it. Ever since her closely followed pregnancy became public record, she’s been proudly showing off her baby bump in mini dresses, and skin-tight dresses. No flowy tops, no mommy jeans, and no “comfy” shoes. Still her same, fabulous self:

The key is to stick with fabrics that stretch! No matter how much you try to dress up, you can’t ignore that there’s a 5 lb(?) human growing inside of you. So instead of going with the usual trendy distressed skinny jean, go with a cotton legging with lots of stretch. Instead of opting for the multi-zipper leather jacket when it gets nippy out, instead go with an embellished or sequin stretch cardigan, that way you can keep warm and still be trendy and fly. I also recommend cover ups the either zip or button, so you can always adjust when the little one starts getting busy! The best pregnant woman accessory is a necklace! And the chunkier the better! Bib necklaces are major this season, throw one on over a simple white flowy top to add some pizazz and to distract from the little one (hey, you’re still the star until they get here! Lol). And while I don’t necessarily recommend heels, (different strokes for different folks) I say stick with super cute flats or leather thigh high flat boots, but if you’re a trooper and want to throw on 4 inches or better, go for it! After all, I’m just a blogger. What do I know? 😉
