5 Festive Rules for Styling Your Baby Bump

The festive season is finally here, and with it comes a plethora of occasions and functions that call for a celebration. And what’s the best part about festivals? Dressing up, of course! It feels great to put on new clothes and look your best for all the events during festivals. And as a mommy-to-be, the festive season is a great time to shine and show off your radiant glow – complimented by the right outfit, of course!

Even with your body constantly changing as the months go by, choosing an outfit doesn’t have to be a difficult task. With most maternity wear focusing on the ‘comfort’ factor, we’re here to tell you that comfortable can be trendy. All it takes are some smart festive tips, and voila! You’ll look like a million bucks! Take a look at these ethnic styling tips, and flaunt your baby bump in style, this festive season.

1. Blue to the rescue!



While pregnancy is, indeed, a beautiful, empowering journey, your body goes through many changes; one of them being significant weight gain. Many mommies-to-be opt for dark colours to hide the extra kilos they gain during pregnancy, but let’s face it, black isn’t the most festive colour. Blue, on the other hand, compliments any occasion and hides the telltale additional weight effectively, making you look more slender. What more do you need to choose an outfit in this gorgeous colour? There are also so many shades of blue to pick from, right from royal blue, sapphire, azure, and more, that will make you look elegant.

2. Subtlety is a weapon – wield it!



If ‘classic’ is your go-to style, layer your clothing for a stunning silhouette that highlights your baby bump. Wear an embroidered anarkali that highlights your curves with a flowy twist or a simple kurta with an embellished jacket, for an Indo-western touch. Stick to breezy, cool patterns and soft prints for a simplistic, yet dressy appeal. Pair with statement jewellery to finish off the look, and you’ll be good to go for any occasion.

3. Stay comfortable in a sharara set.



Shararas are in vogue right now, and they’re also an incredible clothing option for mommies-to-be. If you’re torn between comfort and bling, a sharara set is just what you need. With intricate patterns and classic embellishments, you can get your fill of looking on point, no matter the occasion. Shararas, with their loose flared trousers, offer maximum movement and comfort, while not being as heavy as a lehanga. For sure, a dressy sharara set should definitely be a part of your wardrobe this festive season!

4. Harness elegance in silk sarees.



If you’ve been avoiding wearing sarees during your pregnancy thinking that they’d be difficult to manage or won’t look good on you, well, time to clear out those misconceptions! Silk sarees are light, with the fabric giving out a sophisticated vibe, at the same time. What’s more, you can change the drape according to your preference to cover or accentuate your baby bump. Stick to a sturdy, lightweight material, rather than straying into the chiffon area, as that would be easier to manage.

5. Shine on!



If bling is your thing, there’s no reason why pregnancy should stop you from being yourself! Pick an outfit adorned with embellishments and strut into any party looking absolutely fabulous. There’s no need to shy away from a statement outfit, as long as it isn’t abrasive or uncomfortable. Get your bling on and pick a sparkly outfit that enhances your figure, and makes you and your baby bump look absolutely glamorous.

Styling your baby bump isn’t the arduous task it seems to be, especially with these tips to guide you through picking the perfect outfit and owning all that bling at festive occasions. So, what are you waiting for? Head to the nearest store and shop to your heart’s content!
