If you didn’t know, in addition to blogging here at Babble and over at my personal blog The Little Things We Do I am also a contributor for the Portland street style blog Urban Weeds. This means that I spend a lot of my free time checking people out. One thing that I don’t always see much of is stylish pregnant women. I was wondering if maybe this was just a Portland thing, since yoga pants are considered completely appropriate brunch attire here, so I decided to google “pregnant street style” and a variety of variations of this search and was surprised at my findings:
Not a lot.
How is it possible that in a world with so many fashion options there is so little for pregnant women? The majority of the pregnancy street style that I came across was comprised of celebrities and editors at fashion magazines. A disappointment to say the least. Why are real stylish pregnant women getting no street style love?
Well, I will definitely be on the lookout for more in the coming months myself, but for now, here are a few fashionistas who didn’t let their personal style suffer during their 9 months of pregnancy.
See them after the jump! (And go check out my post today over at The Little Things We Do to see my most recent styling of my teeny, tiny baby bump).
Miroslava Duma 1 of 6This former editor for Harper's Bazaar Russia rocked her bump proudly and fashionably throughout her pregnancy and wasn't afraid to take risks and have fun with fashion growing belly or not.
More Miroslava… 2 of 6The light and lovely pleating of this dress showcases a baby bump perfectly and makes even the most mundane activities like talking on a cell phone chic.
Parisian Pregnancy Chic 3 of 6All women should have a great LBD (little black dress). Especially during pregnancy.
Pregnant in Portland 4 of 6Simple details like the interesting belt and lace up boots here can instantly elevate even the simplest of ensembles.
Geraldine Saglio 5 of 6This fashion editor at Vogue Paris shows off her baby bump in a simple t-shirt and amps up the style with leather leggings.
Kate Hudson 6 of 6The proportions of this are lovely and Kate gets it just right.
