Over the decade since Alia Bhatt stepped into Bollywood, she has established herself as a sartorial force to be reckoned with. After an intimate wedding in April, the star marked another milestone by sharing the news of her pregnancy with the world.
As she prepares to welcome a new life together with husband Ranbir Kapoor, here are all the style lessons to bookmark from her maternity wardrobe for your first trimester:
As you move from the threshold from woman to mother, it is time to cherish this phase of life. For those in-between months until the bump starts showing, add a wraparound dress like Bhatt’s earthy number to your daywear roster to ensure maximum comfort.
As you move further along the course to motherhood, you will want to bid adieu to constrictive silhouettes. Instead, look for fuss-free numbers like Bhatt’s velvet kaftan that delivers on impact without sacrificing comfort.
Who says you need to retire your party wardrobe during pregnancy? A sequinned number with a plunging neckline will help you celebrate your body’s changing shape. For extra sartorial cred, layer it under an oversized blazer like the one that Bhatt borrowed from her husband’s closet.
It’s always a good time to enjoy a pantsuit moment, and few know this lesson better than Bhatt. For the trailer launch of her newest release Darlings, she opted for a relaxed pantsuit in a cheery yellow hue and comfort-first block heels.
In those early days of the pregnancy after you have broken the news to the world, you will want to celebrate in a flirty number like the cherry-hued dress that Bhatt chose for her latest appearance on Koffee With Karan with strategic cutouts.
