Help! Tube Skirt
Message: Help! Got a black maternity tube skirt from Topshop. Looks fab bump down, but I’ve no idea what to wear on top – any ideas?
Yes! Loads. Let’s start with giving you a round of applause for buying a great item. We love this tube skirt. It’s a great basic piece for any maternity wardrobe and an absolute bargain! Tube skirts show bumps off beautifully.
For classic work wear, wear with a structured top. Something like the front blouse from Isabella Oliver or the Oxford shirt from American Apparel. Then put on some chunky beads and bangles and you’re good to go.
Alternatively, try wearing the skirt with a mismatched jacket for a modern look. Tuck a button-down shirt into your skirt – but only if this doesn’t leave you looking the wrong kind of bumpy. The jacket doesn’t need to be maternity – you wont need to do it up.
You can create a glamorous look for evening with fabrics like satin, brocade or silk. Dress up your skirt with a feminine blouse with billowy sleeves and dare we say it, ruffles. Or choose an animal print paired with fishnets for a sexy evening look. Topshop have some great prints in, as does ASOS.
You can wear the tube skirt with a short jacket or cropped cardigan for a classic vintage look. Accessorise with a strand of pearls and high heels. If you can’t do heels, try wedges, but do keep that vintage feel going on.
You could also achieve a relaxed style with a soft, oversize sweater loose or add a belt to create a flattering shape. If you don’t have a belt to fit your new shape, try wide ribbon. Wear the ribbon below or above the bump, whichever your preference. Complete the relaxed look with a pair of low-heeled pumps or flats.
That’s it from us, we just have one thing to say: We want one! Hope this helps. Do send us a photo of you rocking your bump whichever look you go for!
