What to Wear? Maternity Style for the Christmas Party Season

At this time of year, diaries are jam-packed with social events, and even the most committed party animals admit to fearing how they’ll make it to Christmas Day in one piece! For those expecting, such a social whirl can be daunting – not least because dressing your bump for such occasions can be a challenge. Fear not, with our guide to maternity style this festive season, you don’t have to miss out on all the fun. Just be prepared to be the most glamorous pregnant lady in the room….

Look #1 – The Cocktail Party

Whether it’s the office party or a Christmas night out with friends, we think the allure of the LBD is hard to resist. Pregnant or not, a figure-flattering black dress is the classic choice for understated glamour. Our selection of maternity LBDs are impeccably tailored and made from luxurious fabrics. Simply add a little festive sparkle with twinkling gold accessories and…ta-daaa, you’re party-ready!

Look #2 – The ‘At Home’ Christmas Drinks Party

Entertaining at home is what Christmas is all about. Opening your doors to friends & family with a log fire blazing and beautiful decorations on display – not to mention the mulled wine and mince pies – is as festive as it gets. Whether host or guest, we suggest opting for a statement top paired with leather leggings and heels (after all you can sink into the nearest sofa the moment your feet hurt). This is sleek off-duty style that works every time.

Look #3 – The Black-tie Event

Red carpet looks are hard enough to pull off without a baby bump, so it’s no wonder pregnant women groan at the thought of styling it out at formal, black- tie functions. We’ve been there, which is why we created the Juno dress, our showstopper. Floor-length printed silk with a sexy, low-cut neckline, this is pure heaven to wear. The epitome of feminine elegance, this dress makes a statement all of its own so just add some chandelier earrings and your black-tie dilemma is solved. But be warned, heads WILL turn…
