Beating the summer heat is a challenge for expecting moms. '??When shopping for summer maternity clothes to take you through those hot and humid months, women should invest in a few stylish lightweight pieces that can be worn for day or night,'? recommends celebrity stylist, mom and Encore Maternity founder, Lauren Maslin. Lauren'??s maternity style tips are guaranteed to keep moms-to-be looking cool and feeling great all summer long.
- No matter what trimester you are in, comfort is key. Stay away from synthetic clothing that will make you sweat more. Lightweight cotton or linen fabrics allow the body to breathe and keep you cool even in the mid-day heat.
- Stay on trend. Invest in flowing maternity summer dresses in colorful off-the-runway floral prints. Try a cotton maxi sundress or maternity wrap dress in bold colors or pretty pastels.
- Ditch your dark denim maternity jeans and stick to lightweight white maternity jeans or cotton leggings paired with a sheer tunic. Show off your legs in cuffed bold colored shorts and pair with fitted maternity tanks and t-shirts.
- Turn up the fashion heat with easy accessories like gold bangles and hoops.
- Keep your hair off your neck. Tie it up in a patterned scarf or use a pretty jeweled clip or headband.
- Comfortable shoes are a must. Lose the flip-flops. Metallic or nude strappy sandals or low wedges with a padded foot bed can easily be paired with any of these looks.
