Young Parents (Singapore) - - Shopping -

These tips were shared by free­lance fash­ion stylist An­gela Chu, who has worked with celebri­ties Vi­vian Lai and Paige Chua. She re­cently had fun dress­ing her own baby bump – she wel­comed her first child in March. Here are more ma­ter­nity style #in­spo tips from her:

“My job re­quires me to be al­ways on the move, so com­fort and prac­ti­cal­ity are im­por­tant.

“Dur­ing my preg­nancy, I tried my best to work with what I had in my wardrobe. Long boxy tops are great for cov­er­ing my grow­ing belly and I don’t have to worry about my tummy show­ing when there is a need to ex­tend my reach.

“As for bot­toms, I usu­ally opt for pen­cil skirts in jer­sey – the ma­te­rial is stretchy and can ‘grow’ with your tummy – or lay­ered, ruf­fled long skirts with an elas­tic waist. I pre­fer dark solid colours as they’re easy to match.

“I’d com­plete the look with sneak­ers or loafers with thick soles. They are much more com­fort­able af­ter long hours of stand­ing and walk­ing.”
