How to rock the baby bump with style


By Mahvish Ahmed

Life must be pretty hard right now for all you mamas-to-be out there, but believe us when we tell you that in terms of fashion you’re definitely at the right place at the right time. Why? Because this is the season to be clad in roomy silhouettes! The fashion gurus are flocking to the voluminous cuts from 2011 and the peplum kurtas that crept their way up the style ladder last summer are still scoring high on the trend-o-meter. So, if you’re dying to ditch the straight-cut kameez(es) and trade them for some airy, breathable numbers, go right ahead.

Scroll down for a lesson on the tops that will flatter your curves and help you camouflage those extra kilos. As a special treat, we’ve also got some tips on hair, shoes, bottoms and lip colours to go with each kurta to complete your look.
