Follow our failsafe steps and look forward to 9 months of effortless maternity style
It can be difficult knowing how to style your blossoming baby bump, but never fear as MFM is here! We've created a fashion formula for your capsule wardrobe with the key pieces that'll see you through your pregnancy.
Check out our list of do's and don'ts below and then click through to have a look at our top 9 maternity wardrobe pieces as well as 5 accessories and extras to finish off your new look!
DON'T make the mistake of buying your normal clothes in larger sizes. This will just make you look big, bulky and frankly rather odd, with your hemline at the front riding up and the back sagging down. Maternity clothes have flourished in the last decade. Invest in stylish pieces that fit well, glide over your contours and bump and give you a flattering shape.
DO have 10 basic items of clothing in your perfect pregnancy wardrobe. The idea is to mix and match them and create a multitude of outfits for any occasion - day or night.
DO choose two different neutral shades for the core of your wardrobe. Fitted trousers, skirts and dresses in black and dark grey are perfect for winter. Then add splashes of bright colour with tunics and camisoles to add sparkle to your outfit.
DON'T spend a fortune - remember you're only pregnant for nine months. Just select your 10 pieces carefully, then add some show-stopping accessories and you're all set to go.
So, what pieces should you have in this capsule wardrobe....
