Take style inspiration from Myleene Klass
When pregnant Myleene Klass injected some much needed sunshine on the red carpet recently, the celebrity mum-to-be got the fashion thumbs up for her gorgeous yellow dress.
While Myleene showed just how welcome a boost of colour can be as winter nears its end, bold hues can also enhance your mood and complexion. We loved how Myleene accessorised her canary dress with ruby red lips and matching nails – talk about a double whammy colour pop!
If you’re pregnant and suffering from the winter blues, take a style hint from Myleene. A few key colour pieces in your maternity wardrobe will provide an instant lift to any outfit. If you’re after fashion with post-pregnancy longevity, get your colour fix with accessories or footwear, rather than maternity clothes.
From berry-hued ballerina flats to colour-popping maternity dresses, tunics and tops, here are our style suggests to brighten up your February fashion…
