    Styling Tip #1: Go Tight On The Bottom

    Wear your bigger maternity tops with skin-tight denim or leather leggings. The key is to look for pieces with some stretch for extra comfort. Slightly tuck in the front of your oversized tunic to reveal your legs. These strategically opposite proportions can make a very stylish impact.

    Styling Tip #2: Embrace Your Edgier Side

    Since maternity wear is typically so sweet and feminine, embrace tougher accessories—like studded boots and ear cuffs—to add edge to your look. Think: a floral baby shower dress styled with cropped moto boots and a handful of layered rings. This can feel a touch ‘90s in all the right ways.

    Styling Tip #3: Invest In A Shrunken Jacket

    A little black blazer or small motorcycle jacket will accentuate your narrow shoulders and set the stylish stage for a roomy tunic or dress. Layer on necklaces to finish your look.
