Summer is a time when people feel more relaxed, laid back, and in the mood for fun. Summer maternity clothes follow this more relaxed, casual, fun trend. Summer maternity clothes need to perform many functions. First, they need to keep the wearer cool and comfortable. It’s already bad enough being big and pregnant throughout a hot summer so you don’t need to deal with uncomfortable, hot, constricting clothing.
Second, summer maternity clothes need to work for a wide variety of purposes from work to summer barbeques, and poolside parties to the beach. Finally, summer maternity clothes need to make the wearer look and feel fantastic. Fortunately, the latest summer maternity trends can serve all of these purposes!
Maternity dresses with lots of color are cute, comfy, and trendy for summer. Vibrant maxi dresses paired with sandals are a must-have look for summer. Shorter, knee-length dresses look updated with ruffled hems, floral prints, and tie-dye. All of these looks are very versatile and can be dressed up or down with the right shoes and accessories.
A great pair of shorts is a summer staple. Maternity cargo shorts are trendy paired with cute summer tanks and tees. Also, cuffed shorts are a great look because they can be dressed up with wedge sandals and gold jewelry and accessories.
To keep shorts comfortable, look for stretchy, breathable cotton in a length you feel comfortable with so you don’t have to tug and pull at them all day. Maternity shorts, like maternity pants, come with either a panel to go over the tummy, or an elastic waistband that can be worn under the tummy.
Tanks are fantastic summer maternity wear because they look cute, they can be dressed up or down, and they keep you nice and cool on hot summer days. Printed tanks can be paired with shorts and sandals for a backyard barbeque or dressed up with a maxi skirt for an evening out.
Ruffled tanks can look dressy with a great pair of linen pants, and you can always throw a little cardigan over your tanks to add interest and to keep you warm on breezy summer nights.
Knee-length skirts are a perfect choice in the summer when you get sick of wearing shorts. Knee-length skirts with floral prints look dressy for summer weddings, and denim and cargo skirts can be worn with tanks, tees, and even bathing suits.
Jersey knit skirts also look cute and casual paired with tees and tanks for hot summer days. Knee-length skirts are a great way to show off your legs and get a summer tan. These cute skirts can take you from daytime activities like parades, shopping, and swimming to evening events like barbeques and casual evenings out.
With the right summer maternity wardrobe you will be prepared to hit all of the fun summer events looking your best. With certain key pieces, your summer outfits will be simple to put together, and they’ll look chic and sophisticated, as well as practical and fun.
