Let Lesedi’s stylish maternity moments be your inspiration today to nail effortlessly chic maternity style.

 Cosy sets

These sets are not only super cute and versatile but are insanely comfy. The material itself stretches (key when you’re pregnant).

Button-Downs + Stretchy Corduroy Pants

You can show off your bump with stretchy corduroy pants paired with an oversized button-down shirt. You can play with colours and finish off with comfy statement shoes.

Stretchy Skirts 

Are you wondering how to wear skirts during pregnancy and still look chic? A skirt is one of the most practical pieces of clothing during maternity, especially when it has an elastic waist, as it fits more comfortably on your baby bump.

Button-Downs + Bikers

The button-down and bikers combo is super chic and can be comfy if the shorts are made from stretchy fabric. We love how Lesedi styled it here.
