Maternity Style Bite: George at ASDA

Now that I’m in the last few weeks of pregnancy trying to find something that even fits has become a challenge, let alone something stylish.

If you’ve kept up with my pregnancy updates you’ll know that up until recently I’ve mixed bigger sized basics with maternity pieces. Currently my bump seems to get bigger every day and is protruding from the bottom of most of my tops – not a desirable look I’m sure you’d agree. So I’ve been on the hunt for some maternity clothes that are stylish, comfortable, fit me and don’t break the bank – Hello George at ASDA.

I’ve found the George maternity range has some great pieces that you can style up at a low price. Here are some pieces that I’m now living in to get me through the last few weeks before Baby Douglas arrives . . .

Top of the Crops

It’s official the crop top is back! Toned tummies here we come. Every part of nineties style has returned and the last time I wore a crop top I think I was about nine and it had the Spice Girls on it! As they say Fashion has two legs that keep on walking and now they have walked back round again – except this time it’s about being demure, stylish and sassy.

Check Mate!

Going along with the nineties revival and in particular grunge style, I am definitely feeling a check shirt could be on the fashion cards. I’m thinking bold check style, most likely an oversized option, layered over skinnies, with just a hint of Nirvana.

It’s casual, cool and easy to wear, all in all effortless chic at its best. What I love about a check shirt is the androgynous style, they look so good on both boys and girls:

Zebra style – fashion forward or fashion faux pas?

You can’t have lived through the past month without seeing someone rocking a pair of black & white striped trousers, they are literally everywhere. Now Monochrome and the Sixties are both trends that are huge for this Spring / Summer season but are we thinking this particular striped trouser trend is uber stylish or uber Beetlejuice?

  

Zebra trousers, stylish or scary?

Vintage Military Chic

I knew military was going to be huge for Autumn / Winter 2012 and I really wanted a statement jacket so I went on a shopping mission to find the perfect one. I found that all the ones I liked in Topshop and Urban Outfitters were particularly expensive so I decided to go to my local Army surplus store and boom a whole room full of actual army jackets at bargain prices. I found one which was vintage from the 80’s, size small and it has a cord round the middle like a parka so I could fit it to my size. In order to make it a bit more 2012 I ordered some spike studs from Ebay and got customizing, here’s the jacket:

Bowler Hats: The edge of cool!

I have noticed that hats are really having a come back and it’s definitely emerged from street style trends rather than being dictated by the catwalks and I love a good hat! I often think it would be nice to go back to th 1920’s where men wore suits and hats all the time and the women were always glammed up. Moving on – I love the look of the bowler hat in particular as it adds that effortless chic edge to an outfit, here’s some inspiration:
