5. Bringing it back to basics for the casual mama
Nothing screams basic more than white tops and denim jeans. Maternity wear in Singapore can be a little boring at times, but you know what they say — less is more so embrace that. Keep things simple with a white blouse (available on lechengtrade.sg) and an elastic waist loose denim jeans (available on briefs). The elastic addition of the denim jeans is designed to be your best friend, growing and accommodating your bump over the nine months.

7. Throw it all the way back with a retro look for the hipster mama
Lastly, one for the retro mama! Retro styles refer to ‘outdated’ styles that are making a comeback today. Give your look a major throwback by pulling on maternity-friendly denim overall (available on goaryunve.sg) over a brown oversized checked shirt (available on ZANZEA Official Store). The denim overall gives enough room for your baby bump to grow comfortably: simply adjust the straps and voila! On the other hand, the oversized checked shirt creates a pop of colour and brings out the rustic vibe of the retro look.
Finish off the recreated retro look with a pair of leather eyelet shoes (available on Dr. Martens Singapore Official). This classic retro collection of leather footwear debuted in the 1960s in the UK and became a huge part of the grunge fashion in the early 90s. The convenient side zipper allows you to simply slip them on without having to deal with petty shoelaces!
