1. Describe your pregnancy style?
For work it’s dresses that show off the bump without being too clingy. Nothing too floaty or I just look big all over, it’s nice to try to define a hint of a figure hanging on in there… At home I live in my skinny leg over-the-bump jeans, and given our recent weather I usually layer on a vest, long-sleeved top and cardigan/wrap. I’m hoping I can move onto my maternity leggings (I do love things that come right up over the bump) and more spring-like tops soon.
2. What is your fail-safe outfit?
Again, jeans are great because you can smarten them up with a different top for evenings out. Although that doesn’t happen too often with a toddler..
3. What is your favourite piece from Seraphine?
A gorgeous navy lace dress from the Luxe collection that I wore to the Tommy’s Baby Awards in London. I got so many compliments on it and felt very glamorous, even with a big bump.
4. What is the one style tip you want to share with other pregnant women?
Invest in decent underwear – make sure your bra fits you properly and clothes will look much better. And I sometimes wear a maternity skirt from Seraphine under dresses that are a bit too clingy so they hang better and you can’t see any VPL!
