Special Occasion Maternity Dresses
When choosing a special occasion maternity dress, the goal is to have all eyes on you, not necessarily your bump. Whether it's a sophisticated fete or social mixer, make sure your dress highlights your best features and disguises the obvious. Choosing solids that sparkle will allow you to camouflage curves and call attention to your assets.
Solids slim. It's a well-known fact that black can be slimming, but so can other solids. There's no need to mess with tons of color and complicated patterns: A monochromatic look gives the impression of one slim line. Just pick a color you're comfortable with, whether it makes your eyes pop, your lipstick stand out or your hair more vibrant. One-hued frocks are anything but boring; a rich cast of colors to choose from will give you plenty to work with.
Sparkle a conversation. Because a hint of shimmer will catch the light, make sure you're drawing attention to the right places. An expertly placed sequin or trail of rhinestones are the tiny details that will make your solid frock really pop. Look for subtle accents around the neckline, hem or right below the bust; the goal is to accent your slimmest points, so avoid the mirror ball effect of allover sequins. Special occasions are about the details, so sparkle some conversation over a few mocktails, and prepare yourself for a slew of compliments.
