BN Style Your Bump is a BellaNaija Style classic and today’s column feature is all about Frédérique Harrel, a Parisian-born stylist, and blogger. Freddie as she is popularly known, is also a fashion marketing expert, the confidence coach behind SHE Unleashed and a beauty entrepreneur with her own line of hair extensions called Big Hair No Care.
A London girl at heart, Freddie’s favourite clothing stores include Asos, Topshop but she does like a little Grey Projects in her closet. When speaking of fashion and her style, she told ELLE in March last year;
‘I think fashion is just an expression of yourself. I don’t really follow trends or designers. I shop mostly on the high street, but this outfit is from a Nigerian brand, Grey Project, who I found through a friend and I love [their] collections. They are so colourful and beautiful.’
She’s a mother to a cute little boy named Hugo and while he was a bun in her oven, Freddie’s style rocked our boats with her bodycon dresses, jacket, headwraps and other stylish looks.
Dress It Up
Be bold and rock a bodycon dress and fault your bump. If that’s not your style, try an A-line dress in a fab print or throw an oversized jacket over your bodycon dress like Freddie in her houndstooth jacket and black bodycon dress below.
Dress It Down
We totally love Freddie’s dress down/casual look. If you’re not in the dress mood, try a suit in a statement colour or in print like this paisley one Freddie has on. It’s certainly one of our favourite looks.
A jumpsuit could also be a great choice (with the right fit), the maternity section in some stores have a wide range of chic looks made specially to fit your baby bump. Just like this denim dungaree Freddie has on.
The ultimate chill look has to be a graphic Tee with jeans or a skirt and Freddie nailed this look. For shoes, we noticed she’s a creature of comfort, sneakers, sandals, platforms or block heels… no stilettos here!
