Staying fashionable is a great way to put your best foot forward. My mom always told me to look my best, because you never know who you might run into. I’ve always carried that mentality with me while shopping. When I became pregnant I found it much more complicated to stay fashionable. Take your pregnancy into a whole new fashion trend with a few key elements.

A great hair cut and style can do wonders when you are living with an ever changing body. Take a picture of the style you desire to your trusted stylist. Always pay close attention to the techniques your stylist uses to complete the look.

The right handbag will make any outfit more polished. Look for something with shiny metal hardware embellishment to add a pop. Or a bold color to make any fashion forward gal swoon.

Jewelry pieces that can take a pair of jeans and a t-shirt from boring to classy are a must. A chunky necklace is perfect for plain Jane outfits. Dainty pieces will accentuate everything and goes great with prints.

Comfortable shoes don’t have to be unfashionable. Ballet style flats, kitten heel tall boots or stylish clogs are all the rage this fall season. And perfect for a walking mom to be.

Maternity wear has come along way and truth be told I wore a few of my favorite maternity pieces for at least 6 months after my babies were born. Shopping one size up in regular departments is also a great way to take the trends into your pregnancy. A maxi dress is one of the no fail key pieces to a maternity wardrobes. Layer with a fitted sweater and tall boots and this dress transforms into a great year round look. A belly band works great for continuing to wear any tops that are getting a little short from the expanding belly and also perfect for wearing your pre-pregnancy jeans unbuttoned. For lounge wear a great pair of yoga pants and nursing tank is perfect for pregnancy and beyond. This was also my going home outfit for all three boys after delivery, with a cute sweater it is the perfect postpartum outfit.

Because your pregnant doesn’t mean you have to give up your identity. Accessorizing and wearing the right outfits will take you from drab to fab even with your extra passenger on board.
