Kareena Kapoor And Anushka Sharma Show You That Maternity Fashion Doesn’t Have To Be Boring
Being a mommy is hard, no doubt. But you know what’s harder? Being a mom-to-be. Your skin acts up, your hair falls like crazy and you can’t sleep except on your back. Scratch that, you just can’t sleep. And, if this wasn’t enough, nothing from your wardrobe seems to fit you anymore. You have to give up on your favourite pair of jeans, your bodysuits and shorts, and make space for more baggy and boring maternity dresses or leggings (no fun!). I know you can’t do much in that area as options are limited and hey, comfort is your priority regardless of which trimester you are in. But picking the right maternity outfits, that are equally comfy and stylish, can make all the difference.
Maternity fashion is having a moment right now and celeb mommies are serving some uber stylish looks that you can steal. I mean, the obvious choice is to stick to anything that stretches over your belly and makes you feel comfortable but there are so many options to dress up your bump and not like you completely ran out of fucks. There’s no rulebook for maternity fashion so why pick boring midis and extra roomy kurtas when you can wear non-boring dresses and trendy outfits during pregnancy?
Let us show you some chic and comfy outfit options that demonstrate how to do pregnancy in the most glamorous way. Whether you are just starting to show or are ready to pop, here is some maternity fashion inspo from celebs to keep your style game on point when you have a pea in your pod, and even after that.

Chic summer dresses
No, you don’t have to hide your gorgeous belly in an oversized dress. You can pull off a summer dress as amazingly as you would when you aren’t eating for two. Go for a frilly ruched dress that’s not particularly a maternity clothing (but isn’t that the whole point?) but gives ample room to your belly and looks perfect for a casual day out. If you’re looking for a more glamorous option, go for a satin midi and throw over a pullover over it like Amy Jackson for extra glam points.
Skirts for the win
From the morning sickness phases till you count the days to your labour, a skirt could be your ultimate fashion staple all through your pregnancy. Why? Erm, stretchable waist and no-fuss style! This is the easiest piece of clothing you could put on and feel gorgeous in no time. Plus, you could style it with anything as per your convenience. Wear a T-shirt and tuck it in when you are not showing. Go for a jacket if you want to hide your baby bump and pair it with a shirt for a formal look. Quick tip: tie the ends of your shirt over your belly to make it even cooler.
Leggings, but make it cool
You can’t give up leggings no matter how bored you are, I get it. They accommodate your bump and are so comfy, it’s impossible to toss ‘em in the back. But no one said anything about not pairing with a chic crop top to take your maternity styling up a notch! Take Anushka’s breezy outfit for instance. She wore humble blue leggings and teamed them with a white crop sweatshirt. Not too fancy, but stylish? Hell yes! This is the perfect outfit to run errands or take a walk by the beach.
Go for Co-ords
Co-ords is a big mood right now. They are the perfect quarantine outfit and we are seeing it everywhere on our feed so you can consider it as an absolute trendy pick for you right now. Also if you are someone who struggles with mixing and matching outfits you can trust the effortless and stylish co-ords to look chic without putting in much thought. Kareena has picked something that not only looks incredibly comfy and has extra room for her growing bump but is still stylish. She paired it with high heels.
These may have been popularised by the Kardashians but are the most fashionable and versatile outfit on the block right now. If you are the mommy-to-be who wants to show off her bump, dress it up in a bodycon dress. These are super cozy yet can look high on glam so you won’t really have a fashion fix with this one. Simply wear the dress as is for dinner date or pair it with a jacket for a formal look. You could even wear a quirky printed top under it for a fun and cute maternity look that’s equally chic.
