Starting off the list is former Pretty Little Liars star, Shay Mitchell. The fun-loving actress hasn't allowed pregnancy stop her from enjoying her usual style. In this outfit, you can totally see her flair and personality showing. The mom-to-be looks like a dream in this stretchable body-hugging dress, paired with a striking red lippie and gold hoop earrings. She definitely nailed this hot mama look.

This no-fuss outfit is perfect for a day in the park or mall because it's just so light and easy to throw on. You probably have this in your closet anyway so there's no need to purchase. Or if you don't, you can always borrow from your hubby's closet.
Who knew a romper could look so good with a baby bump? This look, especially with the nude shoes, is cute for daytime and serves as an easy base for layering. Throw on a tailored blazer for a more polished look or for when you're traveling to a colder destination.
If you're feeling a bit extra, Chriselle Lim has got you covered. Who says you can't wear heels anymore while growing a baby? The fashion girl begs to differ as she wears this nude strappy pair and even goes one step further, flaunting baby bump with a cute long polka dot dress and see-through jacket.
Blake Lively, a.k.a. the queen of pregnancy outfits, has blessed us yet again with her style. The Gossip Girl star looked every bit her character with this breezy, low V-neck printed Versace dress. We could totally see a pregnant Serena van der Woodsen strolling around the Upper East Side with this outfit on.
Isabelle Daza was the embodiment of the iconic Mean Girls quote by Amy Poehler—"I'm not a regular mom, I'm a cool mom!"—with this leather and dress combo. The perfect thing about this outfit is that it can go from day to night and can work for different scenarios, too! Plus, you can always remove or add the jacket depending on the occasion.
A quick scroll through the Estee Lauder Global Beauty Director's Instagram feed and you'll definitely get inspired to play around with your makeup looks more. You'll instantly fall in love with her signature messy bangs and red lips. But now that Violette is expecting, she has also been a great source of fashion inspiration. She injects her French flair ever so effortlessly into her outfits. So we therefore conclude that she not only has A+ beauty looks, but also maternity looks! Exhibit A: this expertly-layered outfit.
Sara Crampton of harperandharley.com sticks to her style philosophy of less is more even in pregnancy and gives us a master class on minimalist chic with her breezy dress and sneaks mix. It's a laidback look that gives you so much freedom to move around and be out and about in the city!
Meghan Markle has been frequenting media platforms ever since becoming a duchess—not only because of her high-profile relationship with Prince Harry and her many women-empowering advocacies, but also her impeccable fashion sense. Her wardrobe choices have been nothing short of fitting for her new title. And as if her memorable outfits as a new duchess weren't enough, people around the world watched as she also handled pregnancy with grace and style with every 'fit she wore while being pregnant with baby Archie. One stand out outfit is this colorful ensemble that reflected the happy mood she was in.
And last but not least is model, host, and entrepreneur Georgina Wilson. This was the It girl's second pregnancy and she had definitely already mastered the pregnant look down pat. This little black dress and neon coat pairing is just an example of how a simple addition of a striking piece can transform your whole look. So you can be wearing an extra loose dress underneath for comfort, but you can always amp it up with an attention-grabbing topper to complement a neutral-colored dress underneath. This is a great pairing if you're a girl on-the-go and you need something quick and easy to put on when you're heading out. The best part is that you can pair this with simple ballet flats and it would still look chic.
