Pregnancy is a magical time for us women. But, let’s face it, it’s not all sunshine and roses. With so many changes happening to your growing body, being pregnant can sometimes make you feel not-so fab. Some of us gals here at The Urban List have been through the struggles so we want to pass on our fashion advice to you, to make things just that little bit easier— because you’ve got enough to worry about!
We’ve put together a pregnancy capsule wardrobe, that will accommodate your growing belly. Each of these items are designed to be able to mix’n’match with each other for easy day-to-night, office-to-play looks. But most of all, this wardrobe will make you feel super stylish and hopefully bring some fabness back into your life!
In the words of the iconic Coco Chanel— “Every day is your fashion show. And the world is your runway.” So work it mamas!
