When you’re expecting a litte one, there’s lots to be excited about: gorgeous nursery décor, ridiculously adorable baby clothes and playing the “name game” with your partner until you find the perfect fit. But when you’re pregnant — and especially during the third trimester — there’s one thing that doesn’t excite most mamas: having to get dressed up.
Some days it’s all you can do to get yourself into an old pair of sweatpants, so the thought of donning a fancy dress for a wedding, party of some other sort of grand event doesn’t sound super appealing — or even remotely doable. But there are plenty of pretty maternity dresses that can make you feel confident and beautiful for the night no matter how opposite of that you might typically feel — or how close you are to popping!
Sequins are a no-brainer when it comes to a special night out; rock the shiny look in this ethereal, empire-waist Ivory Gold Sequin Top Chiffon Sleeveless Evening Gown with a lightweight chiffon skirt; or go all out on the sequins with the ASOS Maternity Kimono Dress featuring a semi-sheer sequin overlay, a sleek, plunging neckline and wide cute sleeves.
Tap into the shoulder-baring trend with this one-shoulder Floral One-Shoulder Chiffon dress with layers of feminine frills and ruffles; or opt for the chic, wrap-front design on the silver with ASOS Maternity Drape Knot Midi Pencil dress tie-side fastening designed to fit through all stages of pregnancy.
Fall in love with florals in the form of romantic, whimsical styles like this Seraphine Navy & Pink Floral Silk Gown featuring a sweeping drape and flattering fit; or opt for the gorgeous floral pint on this Pink Blush Ivory Floral Maternity and Nursing Wrap Dress featuring a sash-tie to beautifully showcase your belly and a V-neckline to make nursing easy.
You can’t go wrong with a black dress for any occasion, like this Isabella Oliver Florence Maxi Dress with panels of luxe jersey fabric gathered at the fitted waistline for a flattering fit; your evening wardrobe isn't complete without the Hatch Fete Gown, which showcases a simple line with an elegant silhouette and a columnar cascade from a sleek, high neckline.
Be bold and daring in a magenta-colored style like this ASOS Maternity Sweater Dress with Ruffle Shoulder; or rock a gorgeous sapphire hue in this Everly Grey Lace Yoke Dress featuring delicate, crocheted lace, pretty cap sleeves and a classic empire waist.
