This boss babe has been breaking norms and changing regressive views and rules since day one and motherhood is no different. She has been advocating to destigmatise breastfeeding for a while now, mainly through her parenting initiative called ‘Freedom To Feed’. From desexualizing breastfeeding to celebrating her pregnancy body and flaunting stunning maternity clothing styles, everything she does is inspirational.
So, on her birthday today, TC46 brings all the moms-to-be a guide on rocking your maternity style with confidence and comfort, just like Neha Dhupia!
7 Maternity Styles By Neha Dhupia For All Expecting Mothers To Try
Airy outfits are a must have for the pregnant mother. And nothing says cool and breezy like a great kaftan. This ‘explosion of colours in floral’ piece is the perfect boho-chic and casual style a mom-to-be needs. The neckline accentuates her torso, giving her just the right silhouette without going overboard.
A kaftan with a tie-up waist is the way to go if you prefer structure. Choose fun prints and patterns to make a statement. Cotton ones work wonders during hot and humid seasons and a georgette kaftan makes for a great monsoon fit.
2. Cape Dress
Royal blue never ceases to amaze and Neha proves it with this cape dress in the most stunning shade. The cape dress has been trending for a while with unique variations and takes on the style. This blue Ohaila Khan piece creates a flow with its ruffled bustier pattern that travels down the length of the dress.
Capes are in style and maxi dresses with one can enhance your pregnancy glow. Opt for soft fabrics with work that’s not going to poke you. A solid colour will be the optimal choice for evening dates and parties.
The ivory and maroon contrast in this Rajasthan Anarkali set from House of Masaba creates an appealing visual. Neha wore this on Raksha Bandhan and looked as gorgeous as ever. The intricate indie design on the suit paired with golden motifs on the dupatta make this a fab festive choice!
Anarkalis offer plenty of room and fall gracefully on any and all body shapes. A long one eliminates the need for a bottom and makes it even more comfortable. Opt for bold and bright colours and make the upcoming festival a grand affair!
4. Ethnic Dress
A Nirmooha fashion piece, this midi-length kaftan style dress is just the right amount of desi. The embellished neck and torso gives off boho vibes and the detailing on the sleeves adds some jazz. Neha’s subtle makeup look completes the outfit elegantly.
Hand-embellished ethnic dresses can take your look to the next level. They work for get-togethers, a day out, brunch dates and so many more occasions. Go for a piece that’s made well in fabrics that are soft and easy to deal with. Keep your accessories minimal and sashay!
Blazers add an element of power and Neha completely rocks this outfit! It’s a Plumtwist by Plumtin soft mustard yellow with floral detailing along the neck and sleeves. The olive green inner garment complements the blazer well and keeps it light and breezy.
A blazer can be the x-factor your OOTD needs. Buy a silk blazer and pair it with a plain tee and some chunky jewellery. This outfit is a classy choice for work meetings, networking events, seminars and conferences.
6. Casual Shirt
Keeping it casual but fun, Neha Dhupia’s asymmetrical shirt from House of Masaba is a wardrobe staple. This flowy garment has the cutest puffy sleeves. The bold yellow with black and white print can turn any dull day into a merry one.
Shirts like these offer the right coverage during chilly days while maintaining your style quotient. A half button-up shirt in lively work is a mood booster. Pair it with your favourite maternity jeans or a staple black leggings and you’re good to go!
7. T-Shirt Dress
Neha’s choice of maternity sleepwear shows that you can have fun while you curl up under a blanket or cuddle with your partner. The t-shirt dress is from The Mom Store with a penguin on the front that says ‘baby on board’. How cute is that!
Sleepwear, jammies, nightgowns or plain old shorts and tees, whatever you prefer to sleep in, it just needs to be comfy. Pick a nightwear option that allows you to get a good night’s sleep.
