Fringed jackets and loud prints prove there's nothing frumpy about pregnancy and new mum fashion

New mum

Being a new mother can take it out of you, so choose some statement (and easy) pieces that will take you through this season and give you one less thing to worry about. For inspiration, turn to new mum Amy Huberman who gave birth to her second child, Billy, late last year. She keeps her look simple yet on-trend in a 60s-inspired skirt, loose camisole and fringed jacket. Look for solid-colour tops that drape over the chest area and don't cling to the waist for a comfortable, yet chic, style.

Early days

Fearne Cotton continues to navigate her pregnancy like a pro, teaming a monochrome dress with an open-button denim shirt and an oversized, yet feminine, coat. Whether you have just announced your pregnancy or are still keeping it under wraps, a structured dress like Fearne's will give you some extra breathing room around the middle without clinging to your body. Layer simply with flattering streamlined pieces that draw the eye down, rather than across.

Bigger bump

As you're bump grows, it doesn't mean you have to change your personal style. The key is to simply evolve it. A figure-hugging dress, like Aoife Cogan D'Arcy's, perfectly shows off your bump. The cut is comfortable and flattering and there are no annoying zips or buttons to deal with. Known for her beautiful boho style, Aoife adds some layers to her look with a chic leather jacket and fur gilet, ideal for the unpredictable Irish weather.
