STYLE EDITOR FOR THE COURIER MAIL AND ONE OF THE MOST STYLISH WOMEN IN BRISBANE, ANNABEL FALCO GIVES US THE HOT TIPS ON DRESSING WHILE PREGNANT AND CREATING THE PERFECT WARDROBE, PLUS A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO HER LIFE AS A MOTHER TO OSCAR AND VALENTINA. @ANNABELFALCO

ANY CRAVINGS WHILE YOU WERE PREGNANT?

CHICKEN CRIMPY SHAPES! I LIVED ON THEM THROUGHOUT BOTH PREGNANCIES. THEY ARE THE BEST CURE FOR MORNING SICKNESS.

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO STYLE DURING PREGNANCY?

DRESSES WERE ALWAYS SO EASY TO WEAR WHILE PREGNANT. I’M NOT USUALLY INTO FITTED STYLES BUT THEY WORK BEST WITH A BUMP BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE FLATTERING (OVERSIZED JUST MADE ME LOOK OVERSIZED). I FINISHED THE LOOK OFF WITH A BLAZER AND ALWAYS FELT PUT TOGETHER BUT COMFORTABLE.

HOW HAS YOUR STYLE CHANGED SINCE BECOMING A MUM?

I NEED TOPS OR DRESSES THAT ARE EASY TO FEED IN AND THAT HIDE BABY SPIT UP/ DIRTY TODDLER FINGERPRINTS! I WEAR LESS EXTRAVAGANT PIECES AND OPT FOR STURDY CLASSICS INSTEAD.

WHAT DOES EVERY WORKING MOTHER NEED IN THEIR WARDROBE?

A LBD, BLACK BLAZER AND SKINNY JEAN. THESE ARE ON HIGH ROTATION FOR ME AT THE MOMENT. I HAVEN’T TAKEN THE SOPHIE DRESS OFF SINCE I RECEIVED IT! THE BEST!

HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR WORK WARDROBE MORE EFFICIENT?

I KEEP THE COLOUR PALETTE NEUTRAL (BLACK, WHITE, NAVY, CREAM) AND PLAY WITH PRINTS AND TEXTURES FOR INTEREST.

BEST THING ABOUT MOTHERHOOD?

WATCHING THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF YOUR CHILDREN. IT MAKES YOU APPRECIATE THE SMALL THINGS IN LIFE. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY OR DESIGNER GOODS OR FAST CARS COMPARE WITH THE SIMPLE TASK OF READING A BOOK TO YOUR CHILDREN AND SEEING THEM SMILE.

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?

MY TODDLER – OSCAR! THE THINGS THAT COME OUT OF HIS MOUTH… I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE HE GETS IT FROM!
