Summer is on it’s way, and white is slowly permeating the racks in store across the high street. Now the thought of wearing a white outfit outside of my wedding fills me with horror, so I’ll be steering clear of the dresses! But don’t worry if an all white outfit isn’t for you, there’s an easier way to pull off this summer trend in your maternity wardrobe, and that’s with your shoes.
Adding this white touch to even the simplest of maternity outfits will lift and brighten it. In fact it’s best to pair with something simple, as too matchy matchy, or paired with a brighter colour can be a little much.
Here’s The Bump Edit’s picks of white shoes (and a few bags for good measure) to bring summer to your maternity wardrobe early.
Point Leather Court Shoes
With a super wearable heel height, these Next block heels would work for the office or the weekend. I particularly love the contrasting heel, and could be a great way to stay in heels through your pregnancy.
GREECE Feature Heel Mules
Topshop mules – Not quite so practical as the Next ones, but still with a great low heel, these Topshop mules are fantastic, and the mule is definitely the shoe of the season.
MADNESS Studded Boots
These studded Topshop boots are amazing, a real statement. I know it might seem a bit late in the day to be buying in to boots, but being cutout, and white, they’ll serve you through the (unpredictable Britsh) summer.
Fanatic Round toe Flats
Ballet flats are definitely coming back in to fashion, which is awesome news if you’re pregnant and not a fan of heels. This White leather pair from Office are a great option, and add a bit of a fashion twist to a classic style.
Brogues are a classic choice to add a fashion flare to an outfit. These White ones from M&S will do that in spades! Flat, but with a contrasting cork and white platform they’d be an amazing addition to your maternity wardrobe.
Not to labour the point, but I couldn’t not include this white lace up from Aldo. Expect to see this espadrille style detailing on the platform all over the high street this summer. Love!
If white shoes are a little too much for you, then you can still bring the white of summer to your maternity wardrobe with a bag. Here’s some great ones currently on offer.
XXL leather shopper bag
Oversized and amazing. Stylist Rachel Zoe has often said the a large statement bag is the key piece for pregnancy, and this white version from Mango is a great option!
