Who says maternity style has to be boring? As a fellow mom, I have to appreciate Naomi’s stellar maternity style. Even though expectant mom’s are always told how beautiful we are (most of the time, we don’t feel like it!), Naomi truly glows. While most celebs have the benefit of lots of money and designer friends at their disposal, you don’t have to be an A-lister to score a celebrity maternity style look. Take some cues from free spirited Naomi and add these key pieces to your maternity wardrobe:
If there is one great accessory to take the focus off of your growing belly, then it has to be a scarf. Timeless and inexpensive (if you know where to look), scarves will last you long after you’ve had your baby. Make like Naomi and add a punch of color to a black ensemble to bring attention to your face and away from your midsection.
Show Some Skin!
You may not feel so hot right now, but trust me; there’s one part of your body that you’re still going to want to flaunt. Whether it’s some exciting new decolletage (hello boobs!) or super shapely calves, make sure you play them up. Naomi shows off shapely legs tastefully by wearing a sweet long sleeve top to balance the look.
Any pregnant woman will tell you that one of the most important parts of her wardrobe are her shoes. Cute flats and supportive sandals are staples, but a hot pair of ankle boots is the perfect way to add a trendy element to your wardrobe. Keep the heel low to get the most mileage out of them during your pregnancy.
This was my #1 wardrobe staple during and after my pregnancy. You just can’t lose with a floaty dress because it will fit your ever-expanding shape no matter what size you are, and after will disguise any extra baby weight you may still be carrying. Naomi of course adds an avant-garde edge to her look by belting her dress under her bump, a look that I may venture to try the next time around.
So whether you just found out you are expecting or only have a few months to go, take these great maternity-style dressing cues from Naomi Watts to spice up your style. Your wardrobe will thank you!
