In the past, maternity wear was often loose-fitting and unstylish. Thankfully, times have changed. Modern and trending maternity wear was more fashionable than ever in 2017. These days, rather than burying your growing bump under layers of clothing, it’s fashionable to flaunt it. Pregnancy wear has been updated with new guidelines and trendy options thanks to a slew of fashionable celebs like Beyonce and Blake Lively. Gorgeous form-fitting gowns and cool off-the-shoulder shirts are just two examples of the many modern maternity fashion options available.
Look to your favorite celebrities and style icons for ideas on what to wear during your pregnancy.
1. MATERNITY LEGGINGS
You can still look great when pregnant in a wide variety of leggings, not just jeans. When styled properly, a pair of leggings or another type of pant may make a stunning addition to an outfit. Choose an attractive athleisure ensemble or a basic, streamlined look to flaunt your leggings with confidence. Kristin Cavallari’s leggings and knee-high boots with a white T-shirt and a jacket with contrast sleeves are a stylish take on monochrome maternity attire. Instead, put on some narrow cigarette pants for a more polished appearance. These are really versatile and can be worn with anything from a simple sweater and shoes to a camisole top and heels.

2. MATERNITY DRESSES
To get through your pregnancy in comfort and style, it’s important to choose a few outstanding maternity outfits. Choose a few different styles of clothing that will serve you well for both every day and special events, rather than settling on one uniform wardrobe. T-shirt dresses, like the one worn by Kristin Cavallari, are adorable and practical for everyday wear. Take a cue from Blake Lively and rock a pencil dress to your next formal event. A stylish black maxi dress, like the one Ciara is wearing above, is perfect for going from day to night. In the daytime, wear it with sneakers, and in the evening, switch to heels or wedges.
