Is there such a thing as the perfect dress? One that can be worn to work, at weekends, out for drinks and even as a maternity dress as well? The answer is yes. Ever since the Ashish, Joseph and Whistles SS16 shows, where dresses had simple sash waist knots, the High Street has got the trend all tied up.One of the stages of maternity dressing women often tell me they struggle with is the stage where you have a bump but it’s not an obvious pregnant bump. Therefore you don’t want to just look a bit tubby! These dresses are ideal for solving this problem, if you’re expecting, opt for a style where you can tie the knot either above or below to emphasise your bump. They’re a great way of showing off your shape without having to go for full on bodycon.
If you buy at the right time and in the right fabric, there’s a good chance you’d be able to wear it throughout your pregnancy and after. Asos had a great oversized shirt dress style that’s recently sold out, but it would definitely have worked both before and during pregnancy so look for oversized styles for this option.
These dresses can pretty much be worn anywhere, it’s just the shoe you choose that’ll dictate the occasion. Wear with a pair of Stan Smith’s for the weekend or a block heeled boot for work. And a mule or heel with a clutch and earrings will instantly turn it into an evening dress. Maternity style stress? Sorted!
