Where it used to be all about loose fitted silhouettes and frumpy frocks, maternity wear has evolved by leaps and bounds. Now, it’s all about flaunting and styling the burgeoning bump. Just take a look at these celebrity maternity looks heralded by A-list stars.
Think of our girl Riri making appearances in the most eccentric yet chic ensembles, Cardi B wearing a latex dress or even Blake Lively making a statement in a floor-sweeping yellow gown back in 2019.
Taking cues from some of the major celebrity maternity looks we’ve witnessed, here’s a quick guide for you to . Because when you’re swinging between varied moods while cherishing that blessed bump, a stylish dose of glamour to your wardrobe can do wonders.
Here are the glamorous celebrity maternity looks that you can try
Mini dress with a twist
If body-hugging dresses are your thing, how about taking it a notch above and getting those temperatures soaring high in a latex or leather dress? Remember Rihanna attending the Off-White Fall Winter 2022 show during Paris Fashion Week looking like a vision in a dusty rose leather dress? Or Cardi B in a ravishing cherry red Mugler dress? Mini dresses that further accentuate your baby bump look absolutely stunning and you’ll love the ones that we’ve suggested for you.

Crocheted and knitted dresses have been trending for some time now and adding one (or more) to your maternity closet is a great idea. A perfect blend of comfort and style, they make for a stunning day outfit that you can wear to brunch or for a shopping spree. Whether you choose a short piece like the one that Ashley Graham wore or a long maxi that our Wonder Woman Gal Gadot wore to the Sun Valley Film Festival, the choice is yours.
Classic black dress
A classic black dress is a wardrobe staple that you can never go wrong with. Be it the timeless little black dress, a long evening piece or the leather coat that Kylie Jenner wore, a black piece is a must. Pull-off an all-black look or style it with different hues, the options are endless.
Street style is popular for so many reasons, and one of them is comfort. Slip on an athleisure set just like Cardi B or go casual in a crop top paired with baggy maternity jeans while you flaunt that baby bump like Shay Mitchell. Street style offers a wide scope to experiment. Go all out and make a strong statement.
Yet another trend that’s been spotted in the wardrobe of stylish celebrities is the cropped cardigan. Tied or buttoned only at the chest while your bump makes that outstanding appearance, this is a must have. From flared denims, trousers and loose pants to skirts, shorts and leggings among others, there are innumerable options available to pair the cardigans with.
Drench yourself in the bling with sequin dresses because they make the most noise. How about a shimmery bodycon dress like Shay Mitchell’s for that night out or a glamorous evening gown for an occasion similar to the one that Jennifer Lawrence wore for the Don’t Look Up premiere?

See-through lingerie look
One of the most talked-about maternity looks of late has been Rihanna in a sheer black dress paired with a black trench, matching boots and silver jewels. She stepped out for the Dior 2022 show looking like a million bucks and grabbing all eyeballs with her bold look.
Back in 2021, Kylie Jenner was spotted in a see-through LaQuan Smith jumpsuit teamed up with a black oversized coat and heels.
A more subtle take on this trend are sequin skirts that can be styled in versatile ways. They work well for day and night and let you shine like you’re meant to. We loved Mandy Moore’s purple all-bling skirt and similar stylish pieces are what we have in store for you down below.
Sultry co-ord sets
Yet another great pick for pulling off a bump-flaunting style is to slip into a stunning co-ord set that’s easy to wear and effortless to style. We can’t stop adoring how Ashley Graham soaked up the sun in a satin slit-skirt and shirt set. And if you love it too, here’s how you can step out in a similar look.
While maxis have been a maternity wear essential since forever, there has been a remarkable shift in their silhouettes and styles over the years. They’ve gone from being drab and loose to exquisitely tailored and modish shapes that further glamorise your bump instead of hiding it.

Similar to maxis are midi maternity dresses that have undergone changes over time, resulting in pieces that are in-line with the latest trends. While Blake Lively’s appearance in a yellow sequin dress in 2019 has been etched into people’s memories forever, there are other celeb looks that have been the talk of the town as well.
