When Rihanna stepped out in January sporting a baby bump, everyone was shocked — not only was the star pregnant, but she was wearing jeans, a vintage Chanel coat, and heels. Of course, Rihanna being Rihanna, we wouldn’t expect anything less than an immaculate maternity look.
Yet, as good as the singer makes pregnancy look, the actual feeling is accompanied by less appealing ones like swollen feet, backaches, and weight gain; pulling off a look like RiRi is already hard enough without those factors. With the right pieces, however, you’ll be able to channel her fashion killa energy all while staying comfortable. Check out these eight styles, all under $200, to get the look.
Elastic waist pants don’t have to be ugly maternity bottoms you’ll want to throw away later — this Stüssy pair will keep you feeling cozy and looking polished. Pair with a vintage graphic tee and lots of jewelry to dress up the look even more.
Throwing on an oversized layer isn’t a new maternity style, but Rihanna mixes up the look by showcasing retro graphics and band logos. Styled with stacked jewelry, elastic waist pants, and sneakers, this one-size tee will give you the same look.
Cardigans are great for layering, especially when pregnant. Channel one of Rihanna’s favorite maternity looks by buttoning only the top half of the cardigan and leaving the bottom open to show off your bump.
RiRi hasn’t stepped out in only loose layers — she’s rocked everything from sheer lace slips to bodycon dresses. Tap into her sexier style with this ruched dress, which features a stretchy fabric, loose sleeves, and a curve-accentuating fit.
One of the reasons why Rihanna’s maternity style is so iconic — other than the fact that she’s Rihanna — is that the singer draws attention to her baby bump instead of hiding it. Do the same with this body chain, layering it over an open button down for a classy effect.
Throughout her pregnancy, RiRi has favored sheer mesh and lace tops to best show off her bump. Recreate her style with her own Savage x Fenty pieces, layering cargo pants underneath for a more casual look.
Pregnancy hasn’t kept Rihanna from her collection of hot shorts, and it’s easy to see why; their elastic waist keeps you comfortable while their tighter fit looks great paired with a loose graphic tee or dressier button down.
Mini Uggs have had their moment this year, no doubt thanks to Rihanna’s influence. The singer has styled her pair with jeans, dresses, and even shorts — do the same for a look that’s laidback but not disheveled.
