Pregnancy Fashion - Black Leggings

Although pregnancy isn't the most fashionable period of time, there are ways to dress in style even if you feel bloated and loaded. 

On my second pregnancy now, and just one day shy of 19 weeks, I have accumulated a few items of clothing that are great to wear during pregnancy. They provide comfort, but also create stylish outfits.

Today, I give the floor to black leggings. Some mamas-to-be call them the "savior" -- and I agree. Not only do they slenderize your legs, they are also stretchy enough to fit your growing belly.

Here are a couple of ways I wore my pregnancy "savior," the black leggings:

Conceal your belly with a loose-fitting maternity shirt


Leggings are perfect to wear under over sized shirts, which so many maternity tops are.

Comfy maternity shirts are great over leggings.
  
Just hold out your belly to show it off.

Reveal your belly with a long, tight tank


Leggings also pair well with a long tank, especially tight ones that tends to show off.


This ribbed tank by Mossimo was only $9 at Target.

It's stretchy and relaxed, and looks great with leggings.

Do you have any pregnancy fashion ideas to share? 

I'd love to hear them.
