Eight Awesome Outfits For Mommies To Be

No need to raid the maternity section!

Attention all mommies-to-be, the second trimester has arrived with all its beautiful bulkiness. What do you do? Option A: Sloth around in your hubby’s oversized tees. Option B: Go shopping! The lawn jora you had so lovingly ordered just a few weeks ago has given up on you. It refuses to travel even a millimetre below your diaphragm, making way for a sudden realisation: what are you going to wear for the next few months? According to Cara Waterfall, a contributor for Today’s Parents, “There’s nothing to be gained by procrastinating on maternity clothing purchases — embrace your new silhouette! You’ll breathe a lot easier once you wear clothes that fit.” It is time to give your wardrobe a massive uplift. And that too without heading to the maternity section! We scoured through our fresh and colourful spring collection to bring you the comfiest of designs along with some tips and tricks. Tip 1: Look for designs that will also complement your post-pregnancy figure This flare-y Pattan Patola Anarkali is a no-brainer for mommies to be. When in a rush just pull it over your head and step out. This flared tunic can easily be dressed up with fancy accessories and a bold lip. Buy it for PKR 4,398. Tip 2: Invest in multi-purpose pieces This frock from the Profound Collection has a loose silhouette, a drawstring to adjust the waistline, and comes with multiple styling options.
