19 Summer Maternity Outfit Ideas: Comfy, Stylish Looks For Bump

1. A Classic Shirts & Skirt Combo

A classic white shirt and skirt or trouser combo in our eyes, is always a good idea. We love this neutral look, pull the skirt up slightly higher so it covers the bump and tie the shirt as demonstrated in the picture below so you don’t have excess shirt fabric hanging around the skirt.

Finish with sneakers, flats or a gorgeous pair of sandals.

2. Be Pretty In Pink

Don’t shy away from color during pregnancy, it’s a great way to show your personality and show off that gorgeous bump!

A bodycon dress is aways a popular look for pregnancy as it adds support and creates a beautiful silhouette. Be brave and go for a hot pink number in the summer, it looks fab with a tan and flat shoes.

3. A Floaty, Casual Midi Dress

If you don’t like being restricted in bodycon dresses, a floaty casual midi dress like this is a great alternative. It’s just something about summer fashion that’s so easy to execute in this one and done style of dressing.

There’s enough to think about when it comes to preparing for baby, and this will make that morning outfit conundrum that bit easier.

4. Introduce Stripes To Your Outfit To Elongate

Incorporate stripes into your summer outfit and reap the benefits that they can bring to an outfit. Vertical stripes will draw the eye up or down, elongating the body. They look fab as horizontal stripes across a bump too.

6. Pair A Bodycon Skirt With A Basic Tee

If the idea of just wearing a bodycon doesn’t feel comfortable to you, simply add a basic tee over the top which will give you extra coverage and add a gorgeous pop of color to your outfit.

7. Maternity Wear Can Still Include Denim Shorts

Shorts definitely aren’t off the cards for maternity wear, just ensure they have a comfy elasticated waistband so you and bump can breathe. Denim shorts are a staple item for summer as they work so well with a range of tops. We love this combo with a striped midi length top, simple and classic.

16. Pair Flats With A Cute Mini Dress

Mini dresses can still be worn stylishly throughout pregnancy, and if it’s super hot you’ll be thanking yourself for having one of these in your wardrobe. The ruffle detail on the bust adds beautiful texture to the drape of the dress.

18. Layer A Denim Shirt For Those Cooler Evenings

Whether it’s chilly mornings or cooler evenings, you still need some layers to hand for summer maternity wear, but you don’t need to over engineer it.

A classic denim shirt makes for the perfect cover up, easy to throw on and lightweight enough that you can use it through other seasons too.

19. A Slit Maxi Dress For Added Shape

Wear a maxi dress, but opt for one with a slit down the side. It breaks up the monotony of the fabric and adds so much more visual interest than a straight down design.

Layer with a denim jacket for a stylish cover up that will keep you warm during the cooler summer days.
