The stunning Keira Knightley turns the big 3-0 today and in celebration, we have rounded up her best maternity looks because boy has she taught us a thing or two about styling up your bump.
Showing off her Chanel and Erdem-adorned pregnant shape, the stunning actress breezed through award season like a serious fashionista and gave us all a lesson in how to be the most glamorous expectant Mum ever! Here are the rules you must follow. Pens at the ready ladies.
1. Don’t be afraid of pattern
Keira proves that there’s no need to shy away from vibrant and busy patterns when you are pregnant. Although you might think only block colours will do, a seriously buzzy print will mean you stand out and look fantastic. Don’t hide away – be proud of your bump!
2. Dungarees still provide the cutest maternity look
Comfty, baggy and perfect for pregnancy, we sure are lucky that denim and dungas are both having a serious moment in the fashion world. As Ms Knightley shows so well, dungarees should be at the top of your wish list for off-duty chic.
3. Strapless is still a go
Just because you’ve got a baby bump doesn’t mean you need to stick to demure or covered up styles – this strapless gown is perfect and no one would call it inappropriate. Use your pregnancy as an opportunity to try out new shapes and experiment with your style!
4. Make the most of empire-waists to show off that bump
The old school way of dressing up your bump shouldn’t be forgotten. Tucking in just above the bump provides a perfect shape to show off your new bod!
5. Chiffon is your friend
Floaty, drapey and seriously flattering, the way to look chic and elegant when you’re pregnant is definitely by investing in something chiffon. And it’s totally on trend!
Thanks for the tips and Happy Birthday Keira!
