"Dungarees have really made a comeback in recent years and they are a great way to look stylish but yet comfortable during pregnancy. I would wear these with a cute colourful tee & some sandals for an easy everyday look."
"I lived in skirts during my pregnancy with my twin girls! so comfortable, yet looks really put together. They look great with both jumpers & tee's so can be worn all year round. A lovely patterned skirt, like this one, always looks great with a pair of plain white trainers. Skirts are so practical during pregnancy & one of my maternity style favourites."
"Neutrals will always go a long way in your wardrobe and are a big hit this season. Dresses are a fabulous maternity pick as its one item of clothing, so can save you time by not having to put an outfit together. I would wear this with either plain white trainers or a nice pair of sandals."
"Staying cool during pregnancy is a must for me, I used to get so hot when I was pregnant and that's not like me at all. This camisole will be perfect in the spring/summer months paired with some loose fitting shorts or leggings and some sandals. The print is a statement, so I would keep the bottom half plain or denim. "
"This is such a beautiful dress & would fabulous with a large straw hat, bag & summer sandals. I love the colour, light pastels are always a go to colour palette for me! Style with a cardigan on a cooler day & even trainers would work with this dress!"
