pregnancy fashion metallic blazerJust because you are pregnant does not mean you have to give up your style and fashion sense. Pregnancy is a time to shine, so it's fitting that one of the biggest trends to hit the runways this season was metallic - metallic dresses, coats, skirts, pants and accessories. If you are tired of the plain old black and white fashion accessories, step into the future with metallic accessories and add a sleek edge to your look.

The metallic look isn't so harsh if done in small doses. Go space age chic with a metallic shoe or clutch; add a wow factor to your wardrobe with a metallic blazer over an all black ensemble, or add a little glamour to your evening look with a metallic bracelet or necklace. Don't be afraid to make a statement while you are pregnant. Be true to yourself, but put a little effort into your wardrobe and getting dressed each day.

Metallics are fun, sexy, chic and can make you feel just that when you slip them on. If the whole metallic thing intimidates you, try a shimmery iridescent pastel for a more feminine take on the trend.

Runway trends can be hard to pull of in real life, so try pieces that are easy to pull off in your every day life. A silver-metallic flat shoe, for example, is stylish, easy to slip on with jeans and subtle enough to wear every day. This spring, shine bright in your metallics and feel great!
