Pregnant women 'should wear comfy flats with socks'
Pregnant women should wear maxi dresses when pregnant for a comfortable but chic look, one expert has said.

Angela Barnard, founder of My London Stylist, said that wearing a maxi dress allows women to opt for comfy flats and socks.

"A heavily-pregnant woman waddling around in killer heels is not a good look," she added.

For those shopping on a budget, Ms Barnard suggests buying oversized non-maternity items such as long vests and oversized shirts.

In addition, she maintains that pregnant women should make the most of the "glow" that is common during that phase of life, saying that heavy foundation can be swapped for a tinted moisturiser.

You may also find your hair feels thicker and gets more glossy, so experiment with new ways to wear your hair," she adds.

In other style news, the Daily Mail has reported that young women are opting to model themselves on their grandmothers, with many choosing mid-length skirts, heavy cardigans and flesh-coloured tights.
