A lot of people have a misconception about pregnancy and clothing. People tend to believe that fashion and style take the back burner when you’re carrying a tiny human in your belly. Add to that the fact that your belly only seems to grow, and you have a picture of an uncomfortable woman in loose clothing. But what if we said that maternity clothes can be as beautiful as you want them to be and that too with a great sense of comfort? Yes, it’s true, and these royal mommies are a testimony to this fact!
It’s true that royals often get assistance from their stylists in deciding what to wear. So, if you’re having trouble deciding what to wear, why not have a glimpse of the choice of pregnancy outfits the elegant royal ladies chose. Surely, you would be able to take some inspiration and get yourself something on similar lines. So, go ahead and take a peek at these royal moms who have served as perfect inspirations for other future mommies like us commoners! From ruffles to sheath dresses, polka dots to animal/floral prints, and bright colors to pastel shades, they have worn and carried everything so gracefully. Let’s have a sneak peek at their maternity wardrobe and get inspired! Here goes:
1. Princess Diana With Her Polka Dots Dress
Princess Diana’s ruffled dress in polka dots should be a go-to option for any mommy-to-be. Its sky blue color is perfect for the summer! It gives you the liberty to experiment with accessories that have a contrasting color, such as a bright-colored handbag (which you will definitely need). The beautiful pearl neckpiece she has paired with her dress is an elegant addition to this sophisticated chic look. It’s interesting to note that Princess Diana often chose polka dot dresses on many occasions, and it’s probably because they look great! It’s safe to say that polka-dotted maxi dresses are beautiful and comfortable, so don’t miss out on this one when you’re looking to buy some maternity wear. It is stylish, elegant, and comfortable, all in one go. What else can you ask for?
2. Princess Diana’s Dress Accompanied With A Sweater
This particular royalty seemed to love bright colors, and we say this because she was often seen wearing bright shades of pink, green, blue, and yellow, particularly during her pregnancies. She did the same with the kind of sweaters she wore too. One among the bright ones was a long pink sweater worn over (yet another) polka dot dress. We say go ahead and get something like this! It’s an excellent choice for a night out when you can enjoy how great it looks as well as the comfort it can provide! To add more color and versatility to your collection, make room for sweaters, overcoats, and bright colors. You can pair them with the same color footwear or go for one that contrasts with your coat. You can’t possibly go wrong with something similar to Princess Diana’s lovely dress and overcoats. They’re comfortable, cozy, and classy!
3. Princess Charlene Of Monaco’s Flowy All-white Look
A high fashion glamorous look doesn’t often bring to mind a dress of comfort. However, the look Princess Charlene donned during Princess Grace Awards in 2014 does just that. Princess Charlene showed us that when pregnant, one can wear a comfortable outfit and still be stylish at the same time. She chose a simple all-white look, with her hair elegantly tied and simple ornaments. The long flowing gown brought on a classic look which is something to be desired for. Those worrying about their building tummies would instantly feel inspired to try on this look when visiting a party or some event. Be it the early weeks or the final weeks of your pregnancy, you can definitely choose this look and feel confident of your style.
4. Catherine Middleton’s Pastel Green Coat Dress
No one wears coat dresses better than Catherine Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge has shown us a wide variety of coat dresses worn with elegance par excellence during her pregnancy. These are a step ahead of sweaters and overcoats, something that gives one a completely stylish and sophisticated look. Coat dresses can be paired up with clutch bags and kitten heels. They are perfect if you are heading out for an official meeting or a daytime family gathering. It will take care of your comfort and style quotient. Add this to your maternity shopping list without thinking much, as you can’t think of a classier option than this.
5. Catherine Middleton’s Black Floral Dress
If coat dresses are a must for winters, then floral prints are essential for summers and spring. Kate Middleton is often seen wearing lace dresses with floral prints. Even with the growing bump, she managed to look not less than chic with these patterns. Like her, you could opt for floral prints with ruffled sleeves or a floral print top with a pair of denim and an overcoat. According to your comfort levels, you can modify it into your style.
6. Meghan Markle’s Bright Purple Dress And Dazzling Red Coat
A dress with a matching coat has been Meghan Markle’s go-to outfit during the course of her pregnancy, and for good reasons. Firstly, it’s a smart and stylish alternative to coat dresses. Secondly, you have the option of removing the coat in case it gets too hot! This is great because we all know how pregnancy can cause those hot flashes sometimes! Open coats allow more effortless body movement without compromising on style and elegance. You could pair your dress and coat with matching footwear and throw in a handbag that complements the entire outfit too!
