2024 Summer Fashion Trends for New Moms : 5 Must-haves to Up Your Style Game

As the mercury rises, it's time to infuse your maternity wardrobe with refreshing summer styles that not only keep you cool and comfortable but also showcase your radiant glow. India has been facing a heat wave this year with many cities like Bengaluru recording the highest temperatures ever. If you are pregnant or a new mom, not only is this heat unbearable, hormones play havoc and most moms feel hotter than ever! 

“With my firstborn, I was pregnant in the winter so I could survive on jackets and pullovers! But this time with my second one, I am pregnant in the summer and I cannot believe how hard it is!” shares Sheetal from the Zactive mom community.

Finding the right maternity clothes for summer is a big challenge! What kind of clothes to look for? What fabric should it be? Where should you shop from? Don’t worry, we have the answer for you right here! We have curated the top 5 maternity clothes that are perfect for summer!

1. Flowy Maternity Dresses:

We cannot start a blog on summer clothes and not mention maternity dresses! These are perfect for every pregnant and new mom and a must add to your wardrobe. House of Zelena has the perfect collection of maternity dresses which you can wear in pregnancy and continue into postpartum. With adaptable waistlines to accommodate your growing belly in pregnancy and fit you with ease postpartum, these breezy dresses are perfect for the soaring temperatures. Made with 100% jersey cotton which is breathable and super soft on your skin, these dresses are a must have for every mom! These fabrics not only allow for optimal airflow but also provide moisture-wicking properties, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable all day long. After all, summer is all about freedom of movement, right moms! 

2. Maternity Tops in Vibrant Prints and Patterns:

“Even though I love dresses for summer, maternity tops are also so versatile for summer”, shares Preeti, a 3 months postpartum mom.


Short sleeve maternity tops which are nursing friendly give you the much needed comfort for beating the heat! Opt for longer tops and kurtis which cover your bump when you are pregnant and pair these with shorts or leggings postpartum! Inject a burst of energy into your summer maternity wardrobe with vibrant prints and playful patterns. From cheerful florals to exotic tropical prints, these eye-catching designs are sure to brighten up your look and uplift your mood. 

PRO TIP: Pick up maternity tops in fabrics like cotton which are breathable and airy. Style a delicate floral printed maternity kurti for a casual day out or opt for a statement top paired with solid bottoms for a trendy ensemble. Perfect for brunches, picnics, or casual outings with friends and family.

3. Functional Maternity Bottomwear:

You will need stylish and comfortable bottom wear to pair with the breezy tops! House of Zelena has the perfect solution for all your summer bottom wear needs! The universal leggings - which can be worn in pregnancy and postpartum are a must have! Made with 95% cotton, these leggings give you the comfort to freely move around in the hot summer sun! The fabric is infused with nano fibre tech which gives it soft feather-like handfeel and we are very sure your babies would love to be in your arms around it. And the beautiful summer colours of pista, lavender, onion pink, coral and sea green, these leggings add just the right amount of colour to your day! 

PRO TIP: Pair them with a fitted top or a breezy blouse for an effortlessly stylish look that can take you from daytime outings to evening gatherings with ease. Ideal for casual weekends, outdoor strolls, or fine dining evenings!

4. Functional and Fashionable Skirts:

Skirts as maternity wear? You heard it right! This stylish and versatile clothing is a must have for the trendy mom in 2024. Made with 100% Cotton Jersey fabric and Detachable Strap & Pockets these skirts can be worn in pregnancy and postpartum! The beautiful cool colors keep you feeling fresh while the elastic waistband and stylish buckle strip, this skirt offers both comfort and flair, making it perfect for any occasion.

Flared skirts are also hugely popular this summer! The soft elasticated waistband expands with your pregnancy belly and stays with you from the first trimester till post pregnancy.

The smocked waistband with a drawstring to adjust your waist band as per your size makes it look oh so stylish!
