Mumzy-Not Maternity holiday essentials – Part 1

19 Jul

Its holiday season once again and that means one thing, a new holiday wardrobe! In this instance a new maternity holiday wardrobe! Just because you have a bump does not mean that you cannot look great on holiday whether it be in a bikini on the beach or a floaty print dress in the city. One key thing to remember, pregnant or not, is to make sure you look like you know where you are going and therefore dress accordingly!

For the beach make sure you pack a couple of bikini’s (don’t have to be maternity as i have said before) and a floaty kaftan to cover up when the heat gets a bit too much. I love this chic Biba animal print bikini and matching Kaftan from House of Fraser. A hat is also a must, a great way to add a hint of understated glamour to your look, either an over-sized floppy one or a trilby, up to you.  If you prefer to cover your bump then there are several nice maternity swimsuits out there that are not frumpy or bland, this red one below is stunning!

House of Fraser Biba Animal print Kaftan £60

House of Fraser Biba Animal Print bikini top £40

House of Fraser Biba Animal Print bikini bottoms £28

Blossom halterneck maternity swimsuit £76

New Look floppy sun hat £7.99

For evenings go for the trusty maternity maxi dress, you can change the look with different shoes and accessories. Blossom maternity do some lovely maxi’s as do Mama La Mode. I am loving this vibrant blue colour at the moment, would look great with a tan as well! Team with gold jewellery and sandals, stunning!

Alternatively for a city break stay cool in elegant floaty fabrics with flats for strolling and sightseeing. There are lots of cute little maternity dresses in print or floral design that will fit this bill perfectly. Boden maternity have a great selection and this ruffle floral dress from New Look maternity is also fab. You could also make sure you pack some Chambray shorts from Isabella Oliver maternity and one of their gorgeous ruched tanks for a more laid back city chic feel. Some statement sunnies and a fab bag will finish your look perfectly.
