How to style maternity leggings for casual wear

We aren't going to lie. Maternity attire and working out what to wear while pregnant is tricky business! Whether this is baby number one, or you've got a few items in your bump wardrobe already, you'll love the versatility of our Mama Tights. Covering your bump with thick flattering fabric that grows happily with you and your baby, these tights aren't just for exercise, you can wear them casually as leggings too. These four looks show you how to style your favourite maternity tights outside of the gym.

Look #1: Casual Cool 

Look put together, stylish, cool and #pregnancygoals without even trying. Pull up your Bronze Leopard Mama Tights as a base but let the pattern and print of the leopard spots do the hard work for you. Tan sandals perfectly compliment the brown tones of the print and allow your feet to breathe and swell without you feeling pain or getting blisters. Button up a baggy oversized white shirt (perhaps even borrow your partners if you're going for the 'I woke up like this' look), and throw everything in a black tote. Can't be bothered doing your make up? No worries. Throw on your favourite pair of ray-bans and pucker up for your go-to shade of lipstick and you've nailed it! 

Look #2: Weekend Warrior

Whether you are going out to brunch or heading to weekend markets, this look will take you to all weekend occasions. Our Black Mama Tights are moisture wicking and breathable, so they are ready and equipped to take on any weekend activity. When the weather gets a bit cooler, layers are your friend. A navy and white striped shirt is a Parisienne essential and there's no reason why it can't be yours too! You can never go wrong with a chambray button up as an over the top throw and we love this tan backpack to carry all of your essentials. Keep track of time with a leather band watch and elevate the look by welcoming some metallic with these silver framed sunnies. Hot tip: when buying shoes while pregnant for winter to keep those tootsies warm, look for boots with elasticised sides making it easy to slide in and out of them.  

Look #3: Floral and Feminine 

Feel picture perfect in our Wild Meadow Mama Tights and layer them underneath every pregnant woman's BFF - a T shirt dress. A beige coloured knit will keep you nice and cosy but is also a cute way to dress up this look. Carrying a big tan bag with you? Make it easier to find the smaller items by investing in a clutch that you can either take with you to evening events or throw in the bag. Ballet flats add to the femininity of the wild meadow print and will be super comfortable to wear during the day! 

Look #4: Boho Luxe 

When in doubt, go monochrome. Shades of grey, black and white are always in style. Werk our Grey Leopard Mama Tights with a black knit turtleneck, wrap a black scarf around the neck and lace up your always reliable pair of casual sneakers. Bucket bags are having a moment so grab yours for your everyday items. Accessories we've used to tie everything together include gold stack rings, a funky felt hat and quartz earrings. Lighten up the look by using pinky-nudey tones in your make up.
