So you’re in your first trimester and you’ve no obvious bump, just perhaps a bit of a tummy or added weight and you don’t want to share your news just yet. But you’ve got an evening out planned and thinking up reasons why, unusually for you, you’re not drinking is difficult enough before you’ve even thought about what to wear. Everything’s just that little bit snug these days. You’re at that in-between stage and not ready for a full-on maternity spree, so what to do?
Invest in some elasticated waist, drawstring maternity trousers that will fit you now and expand as your bump grows. Loose, printed pants are of course everywhere right now so you won’t look out of place, just on trend. Team with a loose flared top and draw attention up to your face with some statement ear candy. If you still want to wear heels go for a chunkier heel to take the pressure off.
