From the moment I first announced my pregnancy, the how-do-I-stay-stylish-while-prego questions became pouring in! After nearly nine months of troubleshooting the subject on my own, I am thrilled to point you in the right direction to help you figure out what to wear during this special time.

Starting with a very crucial everyday wardrobe element, your jeans, I have to say my #1 pregnancy fashion secret has been my Seven For All Mankind Bellbottom Maternity Jeans. Seriously, they are a lifesaver! With elastic side panels for tummy growth, you can wear them comfortably throughout your entire term without sacrificing an ounce of style.

Other free-form bottoms that I can't recommend enough are leggingsobvi—and one of this season's top sought-after silhouettes, a maxi-length skirt or dress. I love All Saints' Bleach Breton Dress. For tops, I recommend keeping it simple and chic with a long soft t-shirt. Try T by Alexander Wang's Classic Short Sleeve Tee.

Concerning footwear, I recommend staying relaxed in a pair of sophisticated flats or wedges—Tinley Road's Capri Wedges are ba-na-nas! Rock the rest of your accessories as you normally do—just don't forget to finish the look with a pair of oversize sunnies to hide fatigue! xoRZ
