What a relief! It’s finally Friday and the temperatures are starting to break from the brutal cold front that was across the U.S! Yay! This comforting weather means it’s time to prepare ourselves and our closets for the transition into spring. With so many places to look to for fashion inspiration, it is easy for fashionistas to start shopping for their wardrobes. Many spring trends have emerged on the red carpet this award season, but next Sunday marks the most exciting event of them all, the Oscars! The most anticipated award show of the year, the Oscars is especially intriguing this year, because a few of the attendees such as Marion Cotilliard and Natalie Portman are pregnant.
While we have no idea what these ladies will be wearing, based on their past looks, it is fun to speculate what styles they will be sporting come the Oscars. Natalie Portman looked fabulous when she wore that gorgeous strapless sweetheart gown with just a touch of rhinestones. Another great maternity red carpet look was the flashy metallic dress Jane Krakowski wore to the Golden Globe awards. What we love about this past award season is that it is proving to women everywhere, that you can still have fun with your clothing and look hot when you are pregnant. Whether it's simple white, glitzy glam, or one shoulder, these women are demonstrating how accessible the spring trends are for pregnant woman!
Since we can't predict who the Oscar winners are going to be, we think it is fun to place our bets on what styles stars like Natalie, will be wearing. Because Natalie has already sported long gowns with sweetheart necklines consistently, we would bet that she might take a risk with her Oscar gown. As a frontrunner, she has received a ton of attention for her movie, "The Black Swan" so we would like her to nab that win with a winning ensemble. Natalie’s one shoulder look at the Critic’s Choice Awards nailed the one shoulder trend and looked smoldering. Our hope is that she will show off her gorgeous curves and go bold.
On that same note, we hope that you have been inspired to take risks with your pregnancy fashion. We encourage you to amp up your style and try something new. If you have been wearing bulky sweaters and leggings all winter, show a little skin this spring. Changing up your wardrobe and making yourself feel sexy on the outside can often yield rewarding results when it comes to making you feel good on the inside. Maybe you don't have a red carpet event to attend to, but even if you are just going out to dinner with your loved one, taking those extra few minutes to give yourself a new sense of style can also invigorate you and you give you a new sense of self.
Have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy the rising temps!
