FlynetPictures.comRachel gives us a quick tutorial on chic maternity style!

When there’s a baby on the way, sometimes other things have to take a back seat. It’s difficult to coordinate your outfits when your dress size changes every week!  Mother-to-be and celeb stylist Rachel Zoe gives us her style-survivor tips while pregnant!

Rachel, experts say it’s okay to wear stilettos while pregnant

“Figuring out what to wear during this time may seem like a small detail, but it can make a huge difference in your comfort and mood,” Rachel writes on her website, “Believe me!” She gives us some tips to staying stylishly sane while sporting the baby bump!

Here’s her advice:

Get yourself a well-designed pair of maternity jeans. As opposed to former generations, we are fortunate to live in a fashion-forward age that accommodates styles for every body, size and situation — pregnancy included. For example, both 7 For All Mankind and J Brand make maternity jeans (praise the denim gods!), which are a flawless starting point for a prego-chic look.

Don’t forget about the other kinds of free form bottoms. Leggings and maxi skirts or full length dresses are perfect for pregnancy. Take your pick of the three styles and then you’re ready to tackle the waist up! For tops, I recommend long tunics, flowy blouses and ponchos to flatter your mom-to-be figure.

Shift your focus to footwear. My fave! You can stay stylish, yet at ease in a pair of wedges or flats. Try either with any of these combinations — long tunic and leggings, poncho and flare jeans, tank and maxi skirt — and you’ll be pregnant per-fec-tion!

P.S. Accessorize. One last thing! Don’t forget to complete your modern maternity look by accessorizing with a big tote bag and a pair of do-not-disturb oversized sunnies to hide fatigue!
