If you haven't heard by now (and who hasn't) the duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is pregnant with her first child, who will be heir to the throne of England. Since she first started dating her husband Prince William, she has been known for her impeccable fashion sense. From the first time she was spotted in a bathing suit walking down the runway to her now classic wedding dress, Middleton has been a fashion icon for the past few years.
Now that Middleton is pregnant, one question remains - what will she wear when her baby bump starts to show? You may think that finding clothes that are both fashionable and suit your size during pregnancy can be tough, but long gone are the days when women simply wore oversized dresses and T-shirts while waiting for their baby to arrive. There are now many maternity clothes that can make you look great - and surely Middleton will be showing them off in the coming months.
"Kate is going to look fabulous fashion-wise when she’s pregnant," said Victoria Arbiter, ABC News' Royal contributor. "You can expect it to be very chic, very stylish, very trim."
Not over-sized, but tailored
Good Morning America recently interviewed Rosie Pope of Rosie Pope Maternity who explained that she believes the public will see Middleton wearing a lot of dresses tailored to suit her new figure, rather than long flowing dresses that are meant to hide her bump.
A baby bump is nothing to be ashamed of, and you should purchase clothes that hug it graciously, not hide your body and potentially make you look bigger.
Global Toronto News stated that Middleton is often known for dressing very neat, with clean lines, and she will probably continue this trend during pregnancy. The news source spoke to Dionne Klein of Belly Maternity in Toronto who said that Middleton's style is always classic and sophisticated, so she will likely wear a lot of blazers and jersey fabrics with clean lines and draping
Lots of plaid
ABC News stated that Middleton is often seen wearing plaid, which is a symbol of the classically British prep look. The news source added that plaid can also have a slimming effect on your body, making it great for pregnancy.
One thing is certain, no matter what Middleton wears, pregnant women in the U.S. and across the pond will be looking to her for style advice.
