Fashion Forward: Maternity Fashion
Nine months of achey backs and sore feet don't go with looking your best. But thanks to some stylish stars, it's easy to look hip and hot while pregnant. The nighteams' Shireen Sandoval shows how in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN---They say if you got it, flaunt it and that's exactly what these Hollywood mom's are doing. Take a tip from tinsletown.... learn to love your bigger belly.
Jessica Hartshom of American Baby Magazine:"When pregnant celebs show up on the red carpet, they've got form fitting dresses that let you know they are pregnant and that is wonderful. It sort of freed everyone up to say hey, it's ok to show my bump."
At Hollywood Mamma - they say anyone can be one hot mamma. Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you can't be big and beautiful.
Velicia Hill of Hollywood Mamma:"What is coming of the runway, is now coming in the maternity stores."
Stay chic in this all black number while hiding those extra pounds with a comfy turtleneck. Accent your glow by throwing on a jazzed up jean jacket and low rise jeans. And for night, shine in all your maternal glory in this tube dress.
Velicia:"Lots and lots of great tops with sequins and rhinestones so women can say I am going to a party and I am still gonna look sexy."
But nothing's as big this season as faux fur and awesome accents. This roomy blazer has it all.
And ladies don't forget one of the loveliest luxuries of being pregnant...An increase up top, so don't be afraid to show it off.
Velicia: "Cleavage is in, it's all about the cleavage now-a-days, so everything you have now has a low cut in the front."
And for moms who want the look but also want to save, fashion bug's new maternity line does the trick.
Jessica:"A good way to budget yourself when you are shopping for maternity clothes is to not blow it all on one or two great pieces."
A basic jean skirt with a geometric top and accessories puts you in high style for under $80.00
Velicia:"Keep to neutral pieces on the bottom, like jeans or a black skirt...And have more fun with the top."
Add some strappy sandals and a handbag and you're set to go for night.
If your not comfortable with showing your belly while your pregnant, another great way to feel sexy is to find pieces that really show off your back to distract from your bulge.
