5 Practical Pregnancy-Friendly Heels
Rosie Pope’s stylish clients in Pregnant in Heels are the envy of every female viewer. How does she bear a six-inch heel with a baby belly in tow?
You don’t have to forfeit comfort for style, and here’s how:
Powerhouse publisher Patrice doesn’t let her swollen feet stop her from squeezing into her Louboutins. If you’re like Patrice and need a heel to add some height, choose a shoe with a thicker heel and a platform -- it'll help cushion the balls of your feet. These classic Franco Sarto pumps ($130) will help you embrace your pregnant glow, and not grouch (sore feet will do that to a girl), at your next fancy event.
Public Relations executive Donna walks like it’s her job in colossal platforms, but we were extremely relieved when she switched to running shoes at the end of the episode.
Divert a disaster and choose wedges over lofty-looking shoes. These gold toe-capped stunners from ASOS ($72) provide major support from toe to heel and promise to preserve your cool factor.
Looks like fashion girl Aimee is having trouble choosing which heels to wear, and after watching her sink into the grassy earth, we think she made the wrong decision. After all, a stiletto’s impracticality increases ten-fold when walking on grass. When will this mommy-to-be learn that strappy sandals aren’t meant for the playground? On the other hand, TOMS wedges ($80) combine comfort with style, so they’re perfect for mommies on the go. Lesson learned!
We admire any pregnant woman who’s brave enough to bare it all in body-conscious clothes, but Akua’s heels are quite literally a step in the wrong direction. A more comfortable (and chic) option would be these studded booties from Zara ($129) -- they’ll take you from shopping to mocktails without skipping a beat.
When a big bowl of popcorn and an entire season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has become your typical Saturday night, you need a shoe that will motivate you to get out of the house. Take a cue from Rosie and choose a colourful heel. We’re smitten with these purple suede kitten heels from Nine West ($110). Slip them on with a slick of lipstick for a look that’s easy and stylish.
So next time you wonder, how do some pregnant women look so chic?, you’ll think back and remember that the secret's on their feet.
