Steal her pregnancy style
From rich textures to delicate fabrics, pregnancy fashion couldn't be chicer
With baby number four due later this year, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor has maternity style down to a fine art. She teams a floral tea dress with simple nude accessories for a style that's classic, effortless and bang on trend. If you are feeling the heat this summer choose light fabrics that fall loosely over the bump. Invest in a pair of neutral flats that will take you through to next season.
Shopping for clothes as a new mum can be tough so instead of looking for an entire new wardrobe, pick up a few essential pieces that will carry you through to next season. Presenter, author and mum to five-month-old Art, Dawn O'Porter's khaki number is light, airy and stylish; all the makings of a beautiful summer dress. You want something that is flattering, with enough room to move around in. If you're not a fan of high heels, fear not, the high street is filled with more comfortable options like flatforms and wide block heels this season.
When you're in the final stages of your pregnancy your priority is comfort but when faced with an occasion, it can be difficult to find something that ticks all the right boxes. Step forward the reliable black dress. Worn effortlessly by Olympic athlete Derval O'Rourke, a simple black dress can be dressed up or down depending on the event. Derval wears it with a textured jacket and nude heels but if you want a more relaxed style, pair it with a light bomber jacket and a chunky flat sole.
