The number one rule of maternity fashion is: don’t change. If you enjoyed wearing something, you don’t always have to give it up. Loved skater skirts and highlighting your femininity? A semi-formal swing dress might do the trick, and keep your chic self intact. No compromises!

Sparkle with embellishments – in the right places

When you’re choosing a semi-casual dress, look out for embellishments and where they are placed. To spice up your outfit, pick the semi-formal maternity dresses with embellished tops: prints, embroidery, sequins – you name it! These details will help you by highlighting your neckline and balancing the proportions of upper and lower body.

Go big

For more formal events, you normally have to invest in a dress – and this is no exception when it comes to semi-formal maternity dresses. If you’re not willing to spend a lot of money on something you won’t be able to wear after nine months, think big! Big shapes. Lots of volume. Elastic bustier. Go big (and don’t go home)!

Accessorize

You’ve picked your semi-formal dress now – don’t forget to accessorize! If you didn’t decide to buy a bold maternity dress and stayed simple, remember that accessories can make any outfit, and you can keep them to wear anytime. A nice pashmina scarf or a hat could add some energy to your outfit!
