Ten ways to rock that maternity evening look

Smart maternity dresses for a night out

If you want to look fabulous on a great night out, but your smart stuff doesn’t fit anymore, worry not!

Here’s 10 ways to turn you and your bump into the dazzling belle of the ball.


  1. Timely purchase - buy your outfit close to the date of your special occasion so you know it’ll fit! 
  2. Work that shape – choose clothes that suit your shape and show off your fabulous new assets 
  3. Accessorise to the max – give your outfit the wow factor with gorgeous bags, jewellery, scarves or hats. 
  4. Flowing elegance – try empire line and maxi dresses with gorgeous fabrics that fall beautifully to the ground. The pinched, high waist of the empire line will draw attention to your new killer cleavage. 
  5. Trouser-tastic - keep looking until you find some of those gorgeous maternity trousers on the market, or dress up maternity jeans with a dynamite top. 
  6. Tops – try wrap tops if you want to elongate your body, or open your neckline with a scooped or cross-over style, drawing the eye up with a beautiful necklace. If you would rather show off your bump, then a bandeau top a perfect option. 
  7. Showcase your assets - look out for design features that draw attention to the parts you want to show off, like your neckline, shoulders or that killer cleavage. 
  8. Ace that silhouette – enhance those boobs with a maternity bra that fits and lifts. 
  9. Where to shop – it’s time to check out high-street shops online as many now offer gorgeous maternity ranges. Or if you want to treat yourself, check out a specialist maternity-wear website. 
  10. Swap that style – no-one wants to splash out on hundreds of maternity dresses, so why not ask your stylish friends about sharing some of your fabulous frocks?
