BN Style Your Bump: Nikki Perkins Edition

Published

 on

It’s time for another edition of BN Style Your Bump, a series where BN Style looks into maternity style from different women to help inspire you! So far we have profiled Chrissy Teigen, Patricia Bright, Kourtney Kardashian, Tamera Mowry, Maky Benson, Blake Lively and Lami Phillipsclick here to see them glow in style.

Today, we have gorgeous lifestyle vlogger Nikki Perkins. Nikki and her husband Jamie are popularly known for their YouTubev weekly vlogging channel Jamie and Nikki and they recently had their first daughter Ava Sarah. Her maternity style was an extension of her personal style, body con dresses and pencil skirts but I really liked the jackets as well, especially the sleeveless ones. It reminded me a lot of Chrissy Teigen‘s edition (click here if you missed it), they’re both models actually so it’s no surprise.

If this is your first edition of this series, we recommend a few pregnancy styling tips which I’ll list below. They stay the same each week but vary with different body types and personal preferences. Just remember to look good, stay comfortable and enjoy your glow.

So let’s get to it.

Love the colour combination of this look and the beige jacket as well. Here she’s 12 weeks in but notice her use of jackets as we go along.

Here she is at 13 weeks looking hot in this burgundy bodycon dress.

At 19 weeks, here she is in this grey outfit with a cozy longline sweater jacket in the same colour.

Here she is with her husband Jamie in a cute white loose fitting peplum top and blue jeans. It’s causal but super cute and it’s one of my favourite looks in this edition.

Sexy in black at 20 weeks. Love it! Notice the V-neck and thigh high slit in this dress. A dress like this could be a little risqué for some but you can always find a dress that you’re more comfortable with that doesn’t have such a low neckline or high slit but Nikki is killing this one!

Another sleeveless jacket with a V-neck top at 24 weeks.

At 32 weeks, here she is cradling her baby bump in a V-neck bodycon dress with a thigh high slit and sleeveless jacket.

This has been another stylish edition of the BN Style Your Bump series. As promised, here are a few tips to note:

  • Accentuate your slimmest body parts. Try empire waistlines.
  • Jackets are a great way to conceal the bump while thigh high slits and V-necks are great for flaunting your legs and cleavage.
  • Don’t be afraid to wear bodycon dresses and feel sexy with your body just remember to be tasteful about it. If you’re a beginner with this, try a bodycon dress in a dark colour and a maxi length. The colour and length reduces attention on your bump.
  • Balancing volume in your outfits by pairing loose clothing with fitted items as well. An example is pairing a loose top with skinny jeans.
  • And if you have no baby bump, check the BN Body Shape Series for useful styling tips!

Look out for the next one, Wednesday next week.

      We don’t know those ones biko! There are only 3…. The Patricia Bright and hubby, Nikki and Jamie and finally the annoying dancing duo, Adanna and David.
      People’s beef with Adanna only stems from her background and the thought that she got to where she’s at simply cos of the stolen assets used to pave way for her and then she flashes her good life in people’s faces to run it in, making it offend people more and more. Aside from that i’m pretty sure they would have been the people’s favourite been that she grew up in Nigeria which would make her more relatable than the rest.

      Patricia is of Nigerian parentage but she was born and raised in the UK.

      Nikki is from South Sudan. In one of her vlogs she mentioned that her family were refugees who escaped to Austrilia on Asylum.
      But look what she has made for her self! So this is the kind of story a lot of people can relate to seeing as with present day hardship not everyone was born with a silver spoon let alone a stolen silver spoon made to feed the masses!!

      My dear no one has beef with Adanna, they are simply ANNOYING.
      What is dere to beef about really. They are unique in dere own quirky way, but they both don’t do anything for me. D only 1 I watched was d dancing to naija music 1. Maybe bcos I’m a fashion girl/design girl. And dere blogs lack that.
      This girl here is a beauty. I can see fashion, design (love d lay out of dere home) and dis one doesn’t seem annoying.

      @Bey
      Why you always lying!!! Naijas have beef with Adanna., it has nothing to do with them being boring. Naijas are mad at her life. It’s like how dare she live happy and post it bcos of who her dad is. There are far more boring youtube couples and people still watch them without all the venom naijas spit out towards Adanna. They are not boring, they are currently full time professionals and there are folks like me who enjoy their simple videos. I believe, their videos will be different from the other youtubers who have different background. For example, Nikki used to be a model, jamie a videographer and people watch just to look at how beautiful Nikki is and Jamie’s editing skills. It’s not like their personal life is more interesting and special. They are regular folks with no special background, so folks can relate more.
      Adanna and David are not as out there as the others, they are more on the serious end.

    Jaimie has got to be the best video editor in all of youtube.
    He is phenomenal. Support Husband, Son and definitely DAD.

    I dont mind ‘swirling” myself – it is obvious most treat their women better.

    They are the cutest interracial couple ever. So down to earth and no pretense.

      I thought no one will mention this! His video editing skills are off the shizzle and their taste in music is sooooo unique. I love her style too, she makes me love being dark especially when pregnancy gives you more melanin than you can handle.
      Sundays and Wednesdays are always a delight with Jamie and Nikki’s vlogs :*

    Nikki’s parents-in-law are bae mehn! There’s this episode they came to pick her for Church on a Sunday. I was in awe seeing her father-in-law give her a peck when she opened the door.

    She’s so girly. Oh! Her complexion is amazing, brown Chocolate.

      Omo…. I think I prefer huis body stature when they were dating. He seemed buff and their ‘Boyfriend does my makeup’ video was so cute. Now he seems a little too slim but hey, you’ve gotta love Jamie and Nikki…. and Duckie!!!! She’s the coolest sister in law evurrr!!!

    @Jade

    Me I like all three… Patricia, Nikki, and Adanna because I like the family values being promoted. Entertainment especially black entertainment has been hijacked by ratchet media with tv shows like real housewives. I also started watching Sisi Yemmie. I also forgot Shirley and her sister Kezia. I don’t watch TV o. This is my own form of entertainment. These women encompass positive images of black women. And I like they are all African.??? I can’t seem to get into African American couples though. I just cannot connect. Dunno why.

    For Adanna, many Nigerians are typically sentimental and very threatened around wealthy people. Didn’t you see the way many insecure people came out of the woodworks when an article on Bella commenters ‘elitist’ attitude was published? We have a problem of also blacklisting a person we don’t like and attack any action they embark on even if it’s good. The image Adanna puts out is positive and to reduce her accomplishments to ‘her father’s wealth’ is ridiculous. Many Nigerians here in America, we don’t have any political background, but we are accomplishing great things here. The main ingredient is having principled family values, dedication and hardwork. I have seen rich politicians with children with a drug addiction. So I can’t reduce her accomplishments to her father’s wealth. Adanna would still do great things with or without her political background. So I agree with you Jade jare.

    June 2, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    Give me my sisi yemmie anyday, I will stalk her when I’m in Nigeria. I also love Adanna and David, I think they are cute and Adanna is also a stunning natural beauty.
