If you have trouble styling your clothing when you're not pregnant, you'll have even more trouble when you're pregnant. And if that's an issue, forget about wearing anything but jersey shorts and a tank top when you're out of the confines of air conditioning.

We're here to help when you need to rock your maternity style–and still stay cool–with these four great maternity looks that are perfect for the hot summer months. You can stay cool and look chic–even in the summer!

Pink and Chevron Maternity Outfit

On Wednesdays (and any day), we wear pink! This top, made of breathable jersey, will keep you cool, and this chic chevron jersey skirt brings a little bold style to your outfit. Maxi skirts are a great maternity staple because they are comfortable, grow with your belly, and you can rock them after baby! It's one of my favorite pieces of maternity wear. Pair this top and skirt with some cute polka dot flip flops, a crossbody purse, and a long necklace to draw a little extra attention to your precious little bump.

Summer Wedding Maxidress

Maxidresses are a godsend for pregnant women during the summer. They are cool, easy to throw on, and most important, they are comfy! A maxidress is a great way to look chic, even when you don't feel so stylish. This look includes espadrilles with a lower profile (which means they are more comfortable for pregnant feet), a gorgeous necklace (only $7.50!), and a bright-pink lipgloss. This look is great for church, dinner out, or a summer wedding.

Cool Maternity Tunic Look

Here's my little maternity secret: You don't really need maternity clothes. I bought a few great pairs of pants, then shopped smart with clearance tunics, jersey dresses, and cardigans. The best part? You can continue wearing these after the baby arrives! This look includes a tunic from H&M (in the non-maternity section) and a pair of white chinos from Old Navy Maternity. I love tunics during pregnancy because they are loose and breezy and cover a big bump!

Cool Summer Maternity Style

Skirts, for me, were a must during my summer pregnancy. Pants, jeans, and even shorts were too confining, and skirts were easy to pull on and style. If you still want a more casual style in your skirt, pick up a maternity denim skirt, and pair it with a ruched maternity top (hint: these can also be worn after baby!). Pair it with nude flats and a bright, sunny necklace.
