OK, it's no secret: Chrissy Teigen is a goddess. The only thing better than the model's adorable relationship with hubby John Legend is Chrissy Teigen's superior maternity style. The former Sports Illustrated model is already famous for her bubbly spirit, down-to-Earth personality, dancing on Lip Sync Battle, and insanely stylish wardrobe, so the addition of a baby was just inconceivable!
However, a model is still a model, and since the announcement us Teigenites have seen nothing but fashionable look after fashionable look on the gorgeous mom-to-be. Also, can we say glowing? With the way Teigen and Legend love their three-legged bulldog Penny and family, the superstar couple are sure to make great parents. Along the way, Teigen has given us style tip after style tip. For women who are expecting, fashion choices are limited and often notoriously ugly. Not everyone wants to wear a stretchy striped tank top dress, thank you so much. What is a fashionable expectant woman to do? Follow the lead of Teigen and other model moms! Learn from women who have gone through similar experiences, and then don't give a rat's ass because a human being is going to be coming out of you!
On her thirtieth birthday this past weekend, the power couple were spotted out all over the town. On Saturday evening, Teigen wore a killer one-shouldered glam dress with leg slits to her official surprise celebration.
On Sunday night, after attending a performance of The Nutcracker and eating a scrumptious meal at Del Posto, Teigen was spotted in a Monique Lhuillier white tea length skirt and black strapless top paired with black lace pumps and stud earrings.
The Monday morning after her weekend, Teigen sported a classic fall look with a twist: a plaid shirtdress, knee-high stockings, a black coat, stunning sunnies, and some killer lace-up boots.
You see? Stylish and comfy are not mutually exclusive! This is style tip number one! Here are a few style lessons we can learn from Teigen since she announced her pregnancy:
1. Fashion and Comfort Can Go Hand-in-Hand
Comfy and a floral print? Comfy and killer street style? You decide!
2. Dresses are The Best
Seriously! No pants? Flowy fabric? Perfect for day and night? Score. Your belly can either pop, or you can drape it in fabric. You decide!
3. You Can Still Wear Heels At the Beginning of Your Pregnancy
Now, this may just be because Teigen is a world renowned model, but I'm sure she would be the first to tell you that if she can wear heels right now then you can too! Maybe not all the time. Go for sweet wedges if you want something between a flat and 6" stiletto-heeled boots.
4. Just Because You're Knocked Up Doesn't Mean You Can't Be Edgy
Look at these color and fabric combos! They work so well. Who says you can't be fun? Mix and match! If there's any time to play with style, it's right now. Minimalism is going out of style; live a little!
5. A Smile Is the Best Accessory
This may be what Teigen wears best! It certainly is the best thing you can compliment your outfit with. You're having a little one named Gingham or Lo-Fi, so spread your joy with the world! Soon you will have to worry about their fashion as well as your own. Till then, take a tip or two from Teigen!
