We're totally in love with Soha Ali Khan's girl-next-door pregnancy style
If Kareena Kapoor Khan was the fashionista that she is in all her maternity outfits too, Soha seems to channeling a more relaxed girl-next-door vibe.
While Kareena Kapoor Khan can be easily credited for having started the trend of flaunting your pregnancy with élan, looks like Soha Ali Khan, has perhaps taken a cue from her sister- in-law too.
Soha and her husband film actor Kunal Kemmu who announced the joyous news of their impending parenthood earlier in April are expecting the baby later this year.
Currently, the excited couple is on a babymoon to London and is living up their lives. Soha, too is proving to mean extremely active mummy-to-be and is happily flaunting her baby bump in various social media postings.
Far from following the tradition of going missing in action when being pregnant Soha is too happy to keep her fans posted on both her personal and professional moves.
And talking about her pregnancy style, if Kareena Kapoor Khan was the fashionista that she is in all her maternity outfits too, Soha seems to channeling a more relaxed girl-next-door vibe.
Soha's simple and relatable pregnancy style
Soha’s style is simple but charming and extremely relatable. During most of her London outings, she is seen wearing relaxed jeans, comfort pants and tights.
She seems to be making the most of staple items of clothing that most of us would have readily in our wardrobes. She is pairing them with long shirts, sweaters and trench jackets that London’s weather demands.
The fact that Soha is on a holiday and may be walking a lot to explore the cobbled streets of London explains why she is seen in sneakers in most of her pictures. But a sturdy pair of sports shoes is also a great utilitarian footwear choice for a mum-to-be. To complete her look and add a personal style she is also often seen accessorizing her look with a sporty cap.
While it remains true that a woman’s pregnancy style is often a reflection of what their personal style is, Soha with her flowy maxis and loose shirts is definitely giving a clue to mum that are preggers on how to dress smartly and sensibly.
Looking for some tips on pregnancy dressing? Here is some practical fashion advice on how to flaunt the bump in style.
1.Do not over shop: Unless you are in a profession that demands regular wardrobe updates, there is no need to break the bank and buy a top to toe new outfits to be worn during pregnancy. Remember you will be wearing these dresses for a few months only and would want to get back to your original size soon as the baby joins you. There is no fun seeing a pile of expensive over priced clothes lying unused later.
2. Buy staple pieces: There are a few must buys that should actually take you through your pregnancy in style. Invest in a pair of maternity jeans, yoga pants or tights a few shirts and you are mostly sorted. Keep the colours neutral and go for solids so that even when you are repeating your looks, it doesn’t seem obvious.
3.Shoe shop: While the elderly in the family will be the first one to advise you against wearing high heels in pregnancy, new studies show that there may be no harm in wearing heels if you can carry them well. But if you are not habitual to heels then pregnancy should be the last time to experiment with your shoe style.
Wear what you are comfortable in. Some women experience swollen feet towards the last trimester and hence open-toed shoes may be a good choice.
4. Accessorize: Pregnancy is a great time to accessorize your looks. Bring out all those stoles and scarves and just like Soha wearing hats or caps can be a great idea. Some women experience dry hair and it is advisable to avoid extreme hair treatments such as rebonding or colouring. So while these treatments can wait for the moment, add a bit of flair to your dressing with bandanas, hats or berets.
