Gone are the days when maternity style meant bulky sack dresses and shapeless onesies. Now, with a little clever styling and smart shopping, you can feel chic all the way through your third trimester, and the cute maternity outfits of street style stars the past few seasons are proof.
Fashion types like Miroslava Duma, Eva Chen, and Pernille Teisbaek have navigated the fashion month circuit with babies on board, and their bump-friendly ensembles can offer much-needed inspiration to help guide you out of a 24/7 stretchy-pants rut—not that there's anything wrong with those, but sometimes you may need or want to leave the house in something a little more polished. You may even find ideas on how to wear pieces that you might have otherwise avoided, like high-waisted skirts and belted jackets, or how to dress for more formal occasions like a wedding or cocktail party.
Below, see 11 outfits that redefine pregnancy style, and shop maternity jeans, dresses, tops, and more.
Airy Shirtdress + Flat Sandals
This oversize silhouette leaves plenty of room for a growing bump, and it's breezy enough to wear in the summer heat.
High-Waisted Skirt + Stretchy Striped Top + Low Heels
In the early months, skirts with a little give can be worn high-waisted with comfy tops.
A-Line Skirt + T-Shirt + Metallic Booties
While the clothes are relatively simple—a slogan tee and a knee-length skirt with plenty of room to move—the accessories are flashy enough to make them look special.
Low-Waisted Jeans + Denim Jacket + Booties
Finally, low-slung jeans are your friend again. Wear them under the bump with an oversize jacket and comfortable statement boots.
Oversize Silk Dress + Platforms
For a fancier occasion, a dress with a generous fit is key. Try one with a tulip shape that's tapered toward the knees.
