Stunning Black Maternity Outfit Ideas To Showcase Your Bump

1.Use A Black Bumpsuit As Your Base

A classic black bumpsuit is the perfect item for your maternity capsule wardrobe. It’s flattering, will enhance your bump and is the perfect base layer for layering.

Elevate the look with a blue striped shirt as shown below. Keep it open, button it up or tie it up depending on the look you want to achieve. We adore this look!

2. Layer With Black Dungarees

Dungarees are a feel good piece of clothing. Stat. Another perfect base layer to layer as much or as little as you need.

If you want to keep the whole outfit black, opt for a top with a lace or sheer fabric like below. It adds additional interest to your look but doesn’t feel as heavy as a full black outfit would. Add some flat sneakers or ankle boots for an evening look.

3. Pair With Grey To Soften The Look

Casual wear that still makes you look and feel good. Black leggings will always be the holy grail item for maternity wear, in our opinion! They’re so versatile and easy to layer with pretty much anything.

Soften the look by adding an oversized grey hoodie and add more warmth with a black overcoat.

4. Black On Black

An all black look is stylish and sophisticated, plus it’s so easy to throw on on the days you don’t know what to wear.

Create the look with black leggings, a black jumper or long sleeved t-shirt and introduce a soft bit of color with some sandals and bag.

5. Throw On A White Shirt For A Coverup

Just because one black bumpsuit addition wasn’t enough… Okay, these bumpsuits are one of our favorites because the look can so easily be updated by changing the coverup.

This floaty white shirt adds the perfect lightweight top layer than can be left opened for a fresh, floaty look.

6. Two Pieces For Stylish Looks

Another way to take away outfit decision fatigue is to buy two pieces. The look naturally always works well and it’s so easy to chuck on.

This cute black two piece is sexy and looks amazing on your bump. We always recommend looking at non maternity clothing as you can often be pigeon holed into certain looks when it comes to maternity wear. Instead, just size up!

7. Maxi Bodycon Dress

The perfect maternity LBD doesn’t exist… There’s something about bodycon dresses that looks amazing with a bump, they’re so flattering and give the most beautiful silhouette.

Lift the look by pairing with tan details – think bag and gorgeous sandals.

8. Floaty Dress With Cardigan For Added Warmth

If a bodycon isn’t your type of style, a floaty black dress is a beautiful alternative. For cooler days, add a gorgeous cardigan for extra warmth.

Dress with black sandals to tie the look together.

9. Black Smart Workwear

Work must go on, even if you’re pregnant and there are some amazing maternity workwear outfit ideas that can help you feel well put together, and stylish.

An all black work outfit is one of our favorites. Pair a black bodycon dress with a soft black trench coat or blazer. A long length one will help to elongate your look and add a different texture against the tightness of the dress.

No one does maternity better than Billie! A perfect way to add interest to an all black dress like this is to opt for something with a little bit of added detail. A mesh or lace sleeve completely changes how the outfit looks and it can make a dress feel and look really expensive.

A Bardot style dress like this is one of the most flattering for bodies too!
