Maintain your fashion sense
Some ladies want to hide the fact that they are pregnant for various reasons. This makes them end up looking bigger than they really are because they attempt to hide the pregnancy by putting on oversized dresses. Instead of looking comical in baggy dresses, choose dresses that are well-fitting yet comfortable. Dresses made from materials that stretch a bit are recommended. These can be combined with jackets and blazers in cold weather to bring out a stylish yet professional look.
Pair your skirts with leggings
During winter, you can pair your skirts with leggings or maternity tights to keep your legs warm. Choose the ones that can stretch or have panels which provide space for growth of your body. Consider the material the legging is made from so that you get one that is soft against the skin. The leggings you select needs to complement the color of the skirt you combine with.
