Pregnancy is no obstacle to statement style. Update your wardrobe for the new season when expecting with these five key pieces available at Nine in the Mirror.
ALL FOR ONE
Seen on everyone from Alexa Chung to Liv Tyler, dungarees have made a high-fashion comeback. Comfortable and cool, this utility-inspired piece is perfect for pregnancy. Hatch’s sleek silk version is a polished way to work the trend. Simply accessorise with tonal, high-heeled sandals and gold jewellery.
BETWEEN THE LINES
Stripes are never out of style, but for spring the classic two-tone motif is reinvented in bold, colour-pop designs. Don’t be afraid of wearing horizontal lines when you’re pregnant – they actually act as a clever optical illusion to conceal a bump. Team T by Alexander Wang’s graphic dress with white sneakers for a relaxed weekend look.
Floral prints are bolder and brighter than ever before this season. Pregnancy is the perfect time to experiment with maximalist motifs – an oversized print flatters feminine curves. Look to 3.1 Phillip Lim’s embroidered short-sleeve sweater for an easy way to work the trend when expecting.
Stripes and florals aren’t the only patterns to pop up in new-season collections. Designers painted polka dots over everything from ladylike dresses to city shorts. When expecting it’s best to stick to one key piece. We love Clare V.’s statement spotted clutch. It will lend a playful finish to almost any outfit and even double as a super-chic nappy pouch once baby comes along.
Marni puts a modern spin on the classic column dress with colour-blocked panels. Tapping into spring’s modern-art mood, the loose fit of this crepe-satin gown makes it an ideal style for pregnancy. Wear it with embellished flat sandals and a sharp box clutch for evening elegance.
