Why not have a bit of fun and steal the style from a bumped up celebrity?
Gloria from Modern Family has a bit of an “out there” modern maternity style with big prints, bright colours and a whole lot of fun!
Played by Columbian actress Sofia Vergara, it was easy for Gloria to appear authentically pregnant because Sofia was actually pregnant during the show’s filming. How exhausting would that be?
I just love the chain print dress she wore in the “Arrested” episode of season three pictured above – a bold gold on black print with body con fitting looked super – classic with a twist.
Prints are one of the big trends to watch and wear in maternity dressing. So you can look the part, here are a three print dresses inspired by Gloria’s pregnancy style.
1. Ali Ro 3/4 Sleeve Sheath Maternity Dress – In a fun Candy Kelp colour combo print of pink, black and beige, this one has a boat neck (great for broadening the shoulders) and is made from a jersey knit in poly/spandex for stretch and spring back into shape. Wear it with strappy heels for the warmer weather or with ballet flats and leggings as autumn blows in. US $179.99 from www.apeainthepod.com
2. Monique Tie Front Print Maternity Dress by Olian – what a striking print! Doesn’t black and cream always looks polished? The poly/spandex blend is silky to touch and a tie under the bust line adds a waist to give some shape at the top of the bump. US $127 from www.duematernity.com/
3. Printed Tube Dress – another great print, this one very urban. The tube fits closely and scoop neck line is flattering. This one has side gathers for extra comfort and room to grow. Team with fur scarves, knit cardigans and a heel for an instant chic maternity look as the weather cools. $79 from www.peainapod.com.au
