If you’re currently making your way through the trimesters then this one’s for you. It’s sometimes difficult finding maternity wear that follows the trends, there’s an abundance of breton striped tops, bodycon dresses and jeans but what if you want to feel more current and more on trend? THE MOTHERSHOP is on hand with the Top 10 pieces you can buy now, to feel SS17 ready…

  1. THE JEANS Feel new season ready with a pair of frayed edge jeans. If you can’t find a cut you like, chop of the bottom of your maternity jeans and fray the edges. Jeans £24.99
  2. THE GINGHAM DRESS If you read the non-maternity trend post a few weeks ago (here) you’ll know I’m no big fan of gingham but this Next dress has almost converted me. I love the sleeves and worn with a pair of black ankle boots, it could definitely find a place in my wardrobe. Dress £40
  3. THE EMBROIDERED SHIRT This shirt from New Look would be such a great staple to your maternity wardrobe. Perfect for work or with jeans and trainers at the weekend. Shirt £22.99
  4. THE PRINT TOP This top reminds me of the Kate Moss collections for Topshop. A great ‘wear-me-anywhere’ that’ll last you the whole 9 months. Layer over a roll neck when autumn comes. Top £34
  5. THE PEASANT DRESS Following on the embroidered trend, the peasant tops and dresses are taking over the high street. Zara have some great non-maternity versions and this Topshop one is such an easy piece for summer. Dress £59

6. THE MIDI SKIRT I think skirts are the hardest to get right when you’re pregnant, this Asos over the bump one has lots of movement so it’d be super comfortable and can be styled up or dressed down for maximum versatility. Skirt £30

7. ANIMAL PRINT A loose shirt like this would act as a shirt for work, a dress over skinnies for a night out and a beach coverup on holiday. For only £14 that’s not bad! Shirt £14

8. THE COLD SHOULDER DRESS This dress actually ticks about 3 trend boxes, its striped, its cold shoulders and  its got frills. It’s basically the perfect summer dress. Dress £38 (coming soon)

9. THE STRIPE TROUSERS Part of the sports luxe trend includes these trousers with a contrast stripe down the side, there are plenty of wide leg versions on the high street at the moment but whilst you’re pregnant, this more fitted style would be more flattering. They have a big old over the bump band too for maximum comfort. Trousers £29.99

10. THE FLAT MULE The closer you get to your due date, the harder it is to see your feet, let alone put shoes on, these mules are the perfect answer, just slip on and go. And this mustard yellow is one of the hottest hue’s for summer. Shoes £29.99
