Look Like a Celeb Mom for Less

04/24/2012

Celebrity moms have access to everything& including high end clothing that will flatter them during and after their pregnancies! Well, you don't have to spend a fortune to look good and be on trend during this time. President and founder of Bump Club & Beyond, Lindsay Pinchuk, stopped by to show us how to get the celeb's looks for a lot less.

For more info and tips from Lindsay and Bump Club & Beyond, visit: www.bumpclubandbeyond.com

LOOK 1: MOM-TO-BE REESE WITHERSPOON
"If you're pregnant this summer, a bright colored dress to show off your bump is a must-have for your maternity wardrobe. Dresses are easy and flattering and cover you in all the right places! Plus, when it gets cool at night, you can throw on a jean jacket or cardigan. The best part of this look? You can wear it after you have your baby while getting back to your old self. The one that we are showing today even works for new moms who are nursing."

Reese's complete look runs about $3,500:

-Pressto Sandals by Steve Madden, $59.99

LOOK 2: POST-BABY BEYONCE
"After you've had a baby, it's hard to hide the post-baby weight! But the best way to fake it is by wearing all black and draw attention to your better assets  it's not like your ears have gained any weight! Just look at what Beyonce does with basic black, a great anorak to hide the excess curves and oversized sunglasses to hide those tired eyes. The best accessory of all? Your baby in their carrier complete with a cute pair of baby kicks---That's the only thing anyone is going to see anyway!"

Beyonce's complete look runs about $2,200

Mason is the epitome of little-man chic with his collared shirts, hats and even his PJs, which he has been photographed wearing out and about lately."

LOOK 4: Mom of Two Jessica Alba
"One of the hottest trends for spring are colored jeans. No one has embraced them more or wears them better than Jessica Alba. She has been photographed in a rainbow of colored legs, many pairs topping the $200 price range. The good news is that ANYONE can wear them, and you can find them at a variety of price points. Colored jeans are more fun than regular denim and signal the onset of summer! Alba's daughters are always dressed on trend as well."

A good pair of boyfriend jeans paired with a motorcycle style jacket can be dressed down with cute flats or dressed up with heels for girls night out or date night with her spouse. Her twins define cute in their classic style, wearing a great pea coat for spring with our favorite trend for little girls, leg warmers."
