Up until recently the most difficult thing to find during your pregnancy would have been maternity evening wear. Now though, all that has changed. Many specialist stores stock a good range of clothes for looking glamorous on your evening out or special occasion, no matter how pregnant you are.

Dressing up is always fun, and guaranteed to boost your spirits if you're feeling down. Because you probably won't have a need for many evening gowns while you're heavily pregnant, it's a good idea to pick one maternity evening wear outfit that will be appropriate for a wide range of occasions. If it's winter, black velvet is always highly versatile, and you can dress it up or down with the right accessories.

Look Slimmer With Maternity Evening Wear

In summer the same principle of the little black dress is still applicable, but in some kind of lighter fabric that won't leave you hot under the collar. If you decide to go for maternity evening wear with a little color to it, a useful tip to create a slimmer silhouette is to choose matching accessories and stockings that are the same color as your dress. A monochromatic color scheme will make you look elegant and has a slimming effect.

When choosing shoes to go with your maternity evening wear, remember that you're going to need something a little more substantial than you might choose if you weren't pregnant. Strappy little numbers with stiletto heels are not a good idea for any time during your pregnancy, but especially the last few months. Assuming that you won't want to wear flat shoes to a special occasion, bear in mind that chunky heels will provide you with the stability you need and will protect your legs and back.
