This Fashion Blogger’s Chic Maternity Wardrobe Is Giving Us Baby Bump Inspiration!

For most expectant mothers, pregnancy entails sacrificing a lot of things: sushi, caffeine, and even sacred hair coloring sessions at the salon. But thankfully, gone are the days of old-school maternity fashion (bye-bye, large, frilly dresses of the past!)—and one thing women can choose not to give up during the 9-month journey is their style game.

One personality whose wardrobe never fails to inspire is international blogger and entrepreneur Chriselle Lim. The hip and happening mom who recently gave birth to her second daughter, served our Instagram newsfeeds with plenty of covet-worthy pregnancy looks the past months—and we’re guilty of hitting the screen cap button for a majority of them.

According to an article she wrote on her blog 'The Chriselle Factor', she tried her best to refrain from buying actual ‘maternity’ clothes this time around. Instead, she invested in ‘evergreen’ pieces that she could wear even after giving birth—a wise, practical move. To build her ultra chic maternity wardrobe, she stocked up on flattering pieces from classic to unconventional: no-fail elastic waistbands, empire waist tops, slip dresses, shift dresses, trusty flats, and even bodycon dresses!

Keep scrolling ahead to see her ultra chic looks—and maybe score some maternity tips, too.
