Celebrity Maternity Style Inspiration

Once the excitement of discovering your pregnancy has begun to subside, many women find themselves wondering what on earth they're going to wear for the next nine months.

While you'll immediately sense that your body is undergoing a wonderful transformation, you'll also face an endless list of unknowns, especially if you're expecting for the first time.

However your body blossoms and grows as your baby develops, there's no reason why you can't continue to look and feel like your usual stylish self. Celebrity bumps are a great place to start if you're looking for inspiration, and today we're showcasing a few of our favourites in the hope that it might help you make some stellar sartorial choices over the coming weeks and months.

Blake Lively

Effortlessly chic, Blake's everyday maternity style expertly combined a series of amazing capes and coats with shorter skirts and tight fitting trousers. She braved vertiginous heels at times, but slouchy boots also featured heavily. We can't wait to see what she wears as a new mum!

The Duchess of Cambridge

Kate manages to remain classic and ladylike while pregnant, favouring elegant dresses and coats that skim the body in just the right way. Designers such as Jenny Packham, Seraphine and Temperley feature heavily in her maternity wardrobe.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese's red carpet look provides ample inspiration for those that need something a little more glamorous while heavily pregnant. She dazzles in a plunging neckline with swathes of dreamy midnight blue fabric that falls from just beneath the bust. A similar silhouette would suit almost anyone.

Keira Knightly

Keira looked stunning at the recent Golden Globe awards, showing off her modest baby bump in a Chanel dress adorned with beautiful butterflies. The outfit is another example of just how well the empire line style works during pregnancy.

Zoe Saldana

Actress Zoe became quite the expert at dressing her ever-changing figure while pregnant with twins last year. Although she sported a number of flamboyant frocks on the red carpet, where she truly excelled was understated casual outfits with heaps of style. We love this bump-skimming little black dress paired with a simple clutch.

If you're still stuck for ideas, blogs are another great source of inspiration. Rach Parcell of Pink Peonies, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, and Naomi of Love Taza all know how to dress a bump with style and flair! Joy Cho of Oh Joy produced an incredibly helpful series of videos dedicated to 'dressing the bump'. Now that she's welcomed her new daughter to the world, there's even some ideas for staying stylish during the tricky post-natal period.
