If the clothes you pick are more than 75% synthetic material, then try to avoid them. Instead go for items that are made of cotton or linen or any other comfortable material that let your breath and can be worn even on hot days.

Add Layers

Your body temperature changes very rapidly when you are pregnant. You might feel very hot at one time and the next, you will start to feel chilly.

If you start to feel too cold, you can simply try on one of them. Keep a cardigan with you as you go out in colder months. In case you get too hot, you can remove it. Jeans are also a good choice for colder days. Their rough material can keep the cold off your body.
