Maternity fashion has traditionally shied away to show off the baby bump. However, the trend has changed in recent years. We’ve been looking through some iconic pregnancy looks, and the throughline amongst them all? The natural beauty and power of pregnancy. These women are strong and talented and their pregnancy glow seamlessly intertwines effortlessly with their amazing style. While it used to be uncommon for pregnant women to have their full bellies out, this trend is now commonplace. Say goodbye to unflattering, conservative looks for pregnancy. Instead, embrace the joy of glowing with joy.
As we honor Black Maternal Health Week, let’s take a look at some iconic pregnancy styles we’ve seen in the last few years.
One thing about Ciara’s pregnancy style is that she was always able to move and dance comfortably. If you’re not into maternity pants or jeans, try an oversized pair and just leave it unzipped like you just ate a whole Thanksgiving meal. No, seriously, it’s okay; just let your baby bump be out for the world to see.
Jada Pinkett Smith
We all love 90’s Jada, the shaved platinum blond head, the mischievous smirk, and the halter top slinky dress with a pair of comfy boots was a look that you could totally recreate. In fact, if you’re not wanting to wear shoes with a heel on them, wear a loose dress that is long enough to hit the ground so you look like an ethereal being just gliding everywhere.
One of my favourite things to see is a two-piece set on someone who is pregnant. Jodie Turner Smith gives us a complete glam with her baby bump. You can do the same. Two-piece sets are the best option for those who want to go out on a night or have an extravagant baby shower. Just size up on whatever bottoms you want, and don’t be afraid to let the baby bump breathe a little.
Our mother. Rihanna’s style, in particular, has resurged and reshaped the “maternity” style. With a baby belly, she is stylish and sexy. You can layer t-shirts, cardigans, or tiny tops with low-rise jeans under fur coats. Notice in the below photo her tying the straps of her heels around her jeans; she’s one for details, and little things like that can really elevate your pregnancy style too.
