EMBRACE Trends:

Don’t shy away from cool trends. This utility jacket with contrasting sweatshirt sleeves and hood is a great piece and trend for the momma-to-be who wants to stay hip while growing her little babe. I mean, who doesn’t want to be the coolest momma on the block?

Choose Stripes:

Don’t be afraid of this horizontal print. Find a stripe size that isn’t too wide. (I like 1” to 1½” stripes.) Stripes are typically on fabrics with stretch, so embrace the fact that you can get a cute print with a soft fabric. If you’re feeling ever-so-slightly wide, simply pair with a well-fitting jacket and instantly cut your width in half. Maternity magic!

Search for Stretch:

Invest in a couple of versatile and stretchy-waistband items. This lace maxi skirt is not only cozy for your ever-growing belly but is also lovely and unexpected. You don’t need to necessarily buy “maternity” clothing … just make sure there is either a drawstring, elastic or a fold-over waistband for that comfort you need during this special time.
