You may think you should put off shopping until you are in your second trimester. However, in the earliest stage of pregnancy, you might struggle with trying to conceal your bump as you wait to announce the big news to friends, family and coworkers. But you don’t have to feel uncomfortable in your clothes! The key is to introduce new pieces to your wardrobe early on that will transition with you throughout EVERY trimester. Here are the pieces to help you through the first trimester and some styling secrets for getting through those first few months and beyond:
Easy Tops: Opt for tops and tees that have a flowing or A-line shape since the silhouette skims away from the body. Pair with skinny jeans or leggings and a cute boot.
Drapey Jackets + Vests: Long live the drapey jacket! It’s super chic when worn open over a 3rd trimester bump or totally works with a tiny belly too, concealing your midsection if you aren’t ready to announce yet. Not to mention, you’ll still be able to work a drapey jacket or vest after baby, too!
Flowing Dresses: Meet your new best friend! Loose dresses are not only an easy-to-wear silhouette, but they are uber comfy and an instant outfit maker. Tip: Choose a pattern for even more modesty.
Leggings: You’ll live in leggings, and since the Secret Fit Belly® stretches with your expanding bump, add them into your wardrobe early! Longer tops and tunics pair perfectly with a legging. Button down shirts do an especially good job of concealing a bump early on.
Long Cardigans: Cardis, especially in the Fall and Winter, are a total lifesaver if you are expecting. The long line look is completely flattering and works for every stage of pregnancy.
