Good news – Belly Dance has got you covered to stay super stylish this winter. (P)leather is everywhere…gracing the front of leggings, accenting the shoulders of tops and sweaters and taking over the jacket scene, like this Denver Jacket from Slacks & Co ($200), which is great for your maternity and post maternity bod. Leggings are another easy way to embrace the trend – we’re big fans of the Leather Look Leggings by Seraphine ($85). We also can’t ignore the explosion of cashmere that happens every year around this time. Give the Maternal America Cashmere Dress ($218) a try to keep your baby bump feeling oh-so-soft and right on trend.
Turn up the heat as it gets chillier and chillier. The more the mercury drops, the more we’re craving some cozy colors in our lives. Try on this sassy NOM Ellie dress with a darling red-lipped clutch for size. Or keep it casual in our super-soft Michael Stars henley with a bold RGB red nail.
Gwen Stefani is undoubtedly one of the most stylish celebs out there – it’s incredible that she can look this chic with her two little boys running around. Here are some items we would scoop up to channel her effortless style. Don’t forget the signature red lip!
The weather is getting awfully chilly, awfully fast this year! With snow flurries gracing the Midwest and East Coast before Thanksgiving, it’s time to start loading up on warm and comfy sweaters to keep your belly and baby toasty. These are great options from two of our favorite brands, Ripe and Olian. As a bonus, the navy and tan sweaters can do double duty as maternity and nursing gear!
We are obsessed with this 100% cashmere swing dress by Maternal America. Every baby bump deserves to be draped in this soft cashmere. You will want to live in this dress, and luckily the simple color and shape give you endless styling possibilities. Check out these two options.
As the weather gets colder and darker, it’s easy to fall into a black and grey clothing rut. Spice up your maternity wardrobe with a splash of plum – on your body, your nails or your lips. It’s also the perfect unexpected color for the holidays!
Check out what’s new for baby. Belly Dance moms love Chewbeads for their teething little ones. Their bright, modern design make them stylish and easy for mom to slip on while keeping their little one entertained. Who can resist soft and cuddly Jellycat animals? We melted when saw these adorable plush creatures. They make the perfect gift for your favorite baby.
We can’t get enough of this cool neutral! From dresses to leggings, accessories to makeup, grey was all over the runways this fall and has quickly become one of our go-to colors. Charcoal, heather, or slate, try working various shades of grey into your maternity wardrobe. These are some of our favorite grey finds!
With temperatures dropping outside and your body heating-up from that little bun you are growing, we find it’s best to dress in layers. You may find yourself freezing one minute and tearing off your sweater the next. The good news? Fall layering is fun and stylish. Add a cardigan over your favorite tee or try a trendier look with a vest or jumper.
Leather seems to always be on trend in the fall, but this year it’s even hotter! Incorporating leather (or vegan leather) into your maternity wardrobe might feel like a challenge, but these great pieces make it super easy to add a little “rocker chic” to your closet. Start small by mixing textures or wearing feminine silhouettes with edgy leather details, or go big with a trendy pair of faux leather leggings.
Although we can’t help but covet every piece of clothing we got in this Fall season here are some of the customer favorites, so far. A jean that will fit and flatter you throughout your pregnancy, a sweater for layering, a wear-to-everywhere dress, a cute tunic to wear with leggings or jeans and a wrap sweater in this seasons best color. What are some of your fall favorites?
Dress: Seraphine Audrey Zipper
The Seraphine Audrey Zipper Dress is one of our most favorite fall frocks! With its classic, flattering shape and gold details, the Audrey is as versatile as it is chic. For a day at the office, we’d wear it with a pair of trendy ankle boots, an over-sized leather tote, and a patterned scarf for a pop of color. Swap out your daytime accessories for a pair of black peep toe heels, bold gold jewelry, and a great nail color (RGB’s Cobalt really pops against a black dress!), and you’re ready for a night on the town!
