Style your bump: maternity wear for winter and spring

accreditation

Finding a balance between functionality and looking chic is hard for any woman to pull off. Not to mention staying on trend if you're so inclined; then there's the colder seasons when looking good is trumped by staying warm. 

Add pregnancy to the equation and the idea of style might be (understandably) at the very bottom of your list of priorities. 

But fashion brands and outlets have seriously stepped up their maternitywear game, from those specifically geared at moms-to-be like Cherry Melon and Pregeez to those with an extra-cute maternity fashion line like Spree and H&M. Options are endless. Some, like Yummy Mummy Maternity and Me-a-Mama, even design items that you can continue to wear well after baby arrived. 

The days of rocking tent-sized dresses are long over!

Whether your goal is to accentuate your bump, flatter it, or just be comfortable while looking good, here are a few items that even non-pregnant women would want to wear.

    I'm all for it - we're going to have power cuts regardless, so we might as well have some stability to better plan our lives

    No thanks! I prefer having periods of no load shedding and we cannot normalise this crisis
