5 Plus-Size Maternity Fashion Tips

4. It's All About Proportion

"Accessories should be larger or they get lost," suggests Matthias. Choosing dramatic jewelry, scarves, and even handbags can balance out the appearance of a woman's body and create a beautiful silhouette. Wear bright-colored lipstick or earrings to bring attention to your face, or don a pair of vibrant shoes to show off your fantastic legs.

"Like your accessories, prints need to be proportional," Kelly adds. Women who are plus-size and pregnant should not be discouraged from wearing prints, Matthias says, but should wear larger prints as opposed to small patterns, which may emphasize a figure. Toile and floral patterns, when worn with other simple items, act as a decoration, not a distraction.
