Pregnancy Style: How to style the new Pregnancy Pocket Tights four ways

Written by Kate Middleton


Posted on August 07 2018

When you're pregnant it can be incredibly hard to find clothes that are practical, comfortable, stylish, and multi-wear. That's why we invented the Pregnancy Pocket Tight. Not only will these matte black tights take you from your first trimester to birth and beyond in comfort and style, but you'll be able to wear them any way and anywhere – PLUS, they have pockets! We've shown you how to style the ‘Pregnancy Pocket Tight’ four different ways that you can easily put together for your next outing with some basic wardrobe essentials.

Look #1: Café cool

Nothing screams, “I've got it, I'm under control!” like a Khaki tee. Khaki is a great colour to work in to this outfit as it's a diverse neutral, but still brings a pop of colour to whatever you're wearing. We've styled this on Kahili Blundell (26 weeks pregnant) by tying it up before her bra line to show off her gorgeous bump. The Pregnancy Pocket Tights come up over her baby belly and compression fabric smooths and flatters hips and legs. Khaki and chambray always look great together, which is why we've added a denim jacket. Neoprene bags are a must this year and are a great throw-and-go bag for when you're in a rush with some statement sunglasses to add a point of difference to the look. A must for any woman's wardrobe are some cool sneakers. We're obsessed with the silver Frankie4 Jackie sneaker, lace them up for a touch of spunk. Swelling or fluctuation in the legs and feet is common whilst pregnant, so wearing supportive adjustable footwear like the Jackie sneakers, and compression fit activewear will help and accomodate for any fluctuation. We'd wear this classically cool look out for a shopping and café catch up with some of your closest gal pals.

Look #2: Silky Business

Why is work attire so hard to dress for while being pregnant? We don't know what the answer to that question is, but we do know what you should be wearing! Grab a long sweater dress for warmth and comfort in a beige or white tone, and make it look just a little bit fancy with a silk scarf. This will elevate the look from casual to polished old-school glamour in no time and will fool absolutely everyone that you're wearing your Active Truth Pregnancy Pocket Tights underneath, not tailored work pants. For an appropriate but comfortable work shoe, we've thrown in a brown leather boot with a thick mid heel. Brown leather isn't too heavy for the soft colours we've already styled on Kahili and with a mid thick heel your feet will be relatively comfortable for the 8 hour work day. A great do-it-all handbag is the Stella Tan Spot Nappy Bag from Alf the Label. Although traditionally a nappy bag, this baby will be so handy (even as a work bag) in the lead up to birth having nine internal and two external pockets to hold everything you might need.

Look #3: Girly grunge

Want to keep your bump under wraps a little longer? Throw on your handy dandy Pregnancy Pocket Tights underneath as a base, then invest in a baggy graphic print or patterned t shirt – a great way to hide a baby belly. Not only will you wear something like this again, but it looks great with the matte black Pregnancy Pocket Tights and having a print or pattern almost camouflages the bump. We've picked an exaggerated leopard print for this look. No need for bags or extra luggage, the pregnancy pocket will firmly carry any keys, cardholders or phone that you'll need to take with you. Keep your head warm with this gorgeous pom-pom beanie and accessorise with the same denim jacket and brown mid heel boots from before.

Look #4: Sporty superstar

Whether you're on your way to prenatal pilates or walking the dog with your partner, it's time to dress the part! A cute puffer vest gives the look a sports luxe vibe over the top of the Active Truth Mama Singlet in Grey and your Pregnancy Pocket Tights. With their sweat wicking ability, these tights are perfect for whatever your workout poison and will keep your body cool no matter how hot and sweaty you might get! The neoprene bag is perfect for any sports equipment and towels you might need while you keep your phone and keys handy in the pocket of your tights. Walk all day in the Jackie Frankie4 sneakers in white and navy to tie off this so fresh, so clean look!

Wherever you're heading, or whatever you're doing, your Active Truth Pregnancy Pockets Tights can be worn anytime, anywhere! Shop the maternity staple here.
