The third trimester of pregnancy doesn’t have to bring a lot of anguish when it comes to getting dressed every day. With a couple of key pieces, and a little creativity, you can come up with options that allow you to feel both stylish and comfortable up until delivery day.
Skirts tend to be the last thing you think you can pull off when you are expecting, but if you find a maxi skirt long enough, they actually fit comfortable over the bump. You can wear a nude pleated maxi skirt over a sleeveless tank, cap sleeve tee, or white cutout sleeve tee. A nude and white palate gives off an easy summer vibe and is perfect for a day-to-evening combination. Pair it with nude sandals and your favorite summer tote.
Heels are hard to pull off in the third trimester, and sneakers are welcomed with open arms. Sneakers don’t have to be reserved just for sportswear. If you pair them with a casual gray maternity tee and striped stretch skirt, you have an everyday casual look for running errands and keeping up with your day’s demands without compromising style or comfort. Complete the look with a solid color baseball cap. If you don’t have a good skirt option, go with a pair of your favorite shorts.
If you don’t want to miss out on the season of summer whites for vacation or travel, try a stretch jegging option. These versatile white maternity pants are available in an under the belly OR over the belly panel option. Pair with a classic navy embroidered top, a fun graphic tee or even a kimono. Grab a straw hat to complete the relax-mode look.
If you have a wedding or special event during the summer months, there are plenty of floral print maxi dress options currently available that are accommodating to a third-trimester baby bump. Look for a maxi dress with an empire waist. This particular cut is very bump friendly. Another perk to the long floral dress option? You can get away with wearing your comfiest shoes that hide pretty well under the dress.
Noticing a no-waistline theme in these styles? As your third-trimester bump grows, you tend to want to avoid snug waistlines or fabrics that cause discomfort. Try a cinched cotton dress for a casual summer look to layer with a denim vest. This versatile look can be worn with sneakers, flat sandals or heels depending on the occasion.
It doesn’t take a wealth of wardrobe pieces to create some pregnancy-friendly looks for your third trimester. Think of items you can mix and match or style multiple ways. What are some of your favorite looks for styling a baby bump?
