New Mum? Own Your Maternity Style With Qoo10
Let’s say you’ve just endured a bad bout of morning sickness. After an eternity of pouring tears and vomit into a pail, you’re now finally propped up on your bed feeling human again.
But just as you close your eyes to rest, an awful thought strikes you like an arrow to the heart: you’re wearing an oversized T-shirt and pyjama shorts, and that’s all that you’ve been wearing ever since you entered your second trimester. Looking around at the collection of maternity clothes you’ve amassed, you can’t remember the last time you dressed up well.
If you’ve found yourself stuck in this unhappy trade-off between feeling comfy and looking fashionable, don’t be discouraged. Whether you want to look chic, elegant or cool whilst growing legs and eyeballs inside of you, here’re some fabulous finds from Qoo10 that will get you started on your maternity style quest:
High, low, wide or out in front; it really doesn’t matter what your baby bump looks like. Dresses are a great option that you’ll definitely look regal in and feel comfy in. Besides, it’s a universal fact that dresses are the most convenient option for when you need to pee (which, frankly, is all the time).
Bold Prints: Party Time!
Even if all the puking has drained away the blood from your face, bold statement dresses will always save the day. Floral motifs are a no-brainer, and striking graphics are a work of art. Vibrant colors lend you energy, and retro prints are a sure way to add funk to your wardrobe.
Style tip: If you want to stand out from the crowd, get creative and pair your statement dress with eye-catching accessories such as oversized aviators with colored lenses or chunky necklaces. The options are endless!

When you’re pregnant, you can hardly anticipate what your body will do or feel next; that’s why it’s always good to be well-prepared. If you’re going somewhere that has air-conditioning or is naturally chilly, beat the cold with gorgeous outerwear you can use to create different styles.
Embroidered Cardigan: Boho-Chic
Cardigans with patterns and hand-made embroidery details always make for an interesting look. If you don’t fancy designs that have motifs splashed all over it, you can look out for subtler ones that break their patterns apart.
Style tip: For a casual look, match your flowy cardigan with jeans. While you’re at it, pick out denim with interesting details, such as embroidery and patchwork.

Blazer: Instant Pick-Me-Up
From formal to casual wear, blazers are the quickest way to take your outfit from zero to hero. Instantly dress up your jeans and T-shirt ensemble with a jacket. For a chic look, wear a pair of stilettos. For a casual look, pair your outfit with sneakers. To look boho-chic, pick out ankle boots and add a cute headband.
Style tip: Clutches are the easiest way to create a fuss-free look with your blazer. If your jacket has flamboyant graphics all over it, go for a plain-colored clutch; if it is a simple one, go for embellished clutches with bright colors.
