All your pregnancy-wear doesn't have to come from the maternity clothes section. Before you spend a bundle on preggy clothes, consider these multitasking numbers to round out your wardrobe as your belly rounds itself out!
Loose, flowing (OK, big) tops like tunics, kimonos, peasant blouses and baby dolls are all over sections of the stores where you shopped before you were expecting. But these in-style shirts are simply made for pregnant mamas.
Leggings are all over the fashion mags and they're a mom's best friend. Dress them up, dress them down and, when you're pregnant, watch them groooow up and down right along with you!
A bright or funky scarf to rope around your neck immediately punches up your outfit and makes you en vogue. It also costs less than a deli special (and, when you're preggers, it detracts attention from your blossoming butt). Check out lots of styles by Fandori on Amazon.
A marvelous maxi dress can flatter any figure. And chic, basic black works equally well with rockin' stilettos or comfy flip-flops!
Swing coats are chic, accommodate a growing belly and will still look cool next year—when your bebe's swinging in the Bjorn!
We love to layer long fitted tank tops under regular shirts when regular shirts don't quite cover the belly anymore. They'll work great as nursing tops, too.
Stick your stilettos in the back of your closet and trade them for comfy ballet flats in a metallic or wild pattern. You'll definitely need flat shoes when you're chasing your little one.
A skirt with a forgiving elastic waistband will work for you nine months up and save you those nine months down before you're back in the skinny pencil styles.
All that fashion and not a belly panel in the bunch!
