What to Wear to Holiday Parties When Pregnant

As we close in on the final days of the decade, your calendar is likely filled with holiday parties, dinners with family, and gift exchanges. Although staying home where it's warm & cozy with your baby bump is enticing, the invites start to pour in, and the question remains the same: what are you going to wear? Holiday parties and New Year’s Eve spark images of glitzy, glamorous outfits but how do you tackle the Christmas party dress code in style, while pregnant? We’ve rounded up a few polished maternity outfits to inspire the festive occasion.

Whether you're heading somewhere fancy or for a more low-key occasion, find your party inspo below. 

For Holiday Parties

Opt for a festive red with the Arlette 3/4 Sleeve Maternity & Nursing Wrap Dress, a comfortable and flattering fit. Our signature wrap dress is a customer favourite as it highlights your natural waist before flowing into a full skirt. It’s a dress you can really move in, so you can feel free to hit the dancefloor with confidence.

For a Gift Exchange with Friends 

Forget the ugly Christmas sweater, stand out at your gift exchange this year in a bold and oh-so-soft pullover with sparkle detail in the cuff, like the Spot of Teal Berto Sweater by John & Jenn. Finish off the ensemble with rich midnight maternity denim, like this one, by J BrandJeans

A maternity jumpsuit is a nice comfortable change from all the body-con dresses- and is a timeless option that you can dress up or down. Switch out the Preston Maternity Jumpsuits' fabric belt for leather or a glitzy one to take this one-piece to the next level.
