Shopping for maternity clothes can feel overwhelming. Dressing down in comfy leggings and a frumpy, oversized tee used to be your only option. But now there are a slew of new stores, options and brands to explore and stylish maternity options are at an all time high. Celebrity moms are no exception–with all the options out there, these moms-to-be are not dressing down these days; they are actually playing up their pregnancies with stylish outfits. Scroll down for some great labels that are making huge waves in maternity fashion.
1. Old Navy
Old Navy is a great go-to for affordable pregnancy style at any stage. They have a wide selection of stylish pregnancy pieces to get you through the nine months with ease, from work to play. Our first pick are these Full Panel Compression Athletic Tights. With the athleisure trend going strong, we felt it appropriate to choose an item representative of this genre that are not only stylish but won’t break the bank as well. These come complete with a full stomach panel with elasticized waistband, smooth, quick-drying and oh so important compression material and a flattering chalk stripe pattern. These athletic pants will easily take you throughout your pregnancy and motivate you to get moving as well.
Topshop’s maternity selection has expanded over the years and their on-trend and affordable offerings make maternity shopping fun again. One great find from their endless selection are their Boyfriend Overalls. Denim overalls have been all over maternity social media lately and for good reason – they are one-stop dressing, can be styled in endless different ways for day and night, and are very comfortable to wear. Another bonus is that they are roomy enough to cover your bump and accommodate your changing shape for the duration of your pregnancy.
3. A Pea in the Pod
A Pea in the Pod is a part of one of the leading maternity apparel retail corporations out there. Their stores offer a wide selection of clothing and price points from affordable to higher end giving you the perfect way to mix and match your options. They are also known for their successful brand partnerships with the likes of Nicole Richie, Heidi Klum and Jessica Simpson.
Speaking of luxury items, one item to think about splurging on during pregnancy are a good pair of jeans. While you may question why, since you will only be wearing them for nine months, one well-made pair can make all the difference in the world. These DL1961 Skinny Ankle Jeans are highly rated for a reason—they are made of high-quality, stylish denim that is, most importantly, extremely comfortable. These jeans will last throughout your pregnancy and beyond due to the specially made underbelly which allows for comfortable postpartum wear as well.
Tart is known as the quintessential California brand. Specializing in clothes for “lovers of laid back chic,” they are most known for using the highest quality fabrics from around the globe, and one-of-a kind prints to create effortlessly modern looks. Their Maxi Dress will become one of your favorite maternity pieces and might become one of your go-to looks during and after pregnancy. A flattering empire waist, slightly exposed decolletage area and a fun, bold print make this dress one you will be excited to wear. Don’t let the tank style sleeves fool you, this dress can easily take you through Fall by layering with your favorite sweaters, cardigans or hoodies depending on the temperature.
5. Isabella Oliver
Isabella Oliver is a great and fashionable maternity brand known for their “Maternity and beyond” styles which make searching and buying maternity clothing that much easier. While their main focus is on fashion, they also really concentrate on using phenomenal fabrics that will fit, flatter and grow with your body during and post pregnancy. Isabella Oliver has gained a cult celebrity following as well, with Blake Lively, Chrissy Teigen and Kourtney Kardashian sporting their chic, wear-everywhere looks.
One of our favorite pieces to hit their site for the upcoming season is the Greyson dress. This is an ultra-chic turtleneck dress that is polished enough to wear to work but would just as easily take you to lunch with friends or date night. With a flattering midi length, ruching over the belly and bracelet length sleeves, this dress can be styled in so many different ways you will feel like you are wearing a new one each and every time.
Noppies is another British based brand that has been designing comfortable and contemporary maternity clothes for the past 20 years. They have a major customer focus and want to create clothing that makes pregnant women and young mothers happier. They have a great website carrying all their options and Nordstrom has helped bring them to the states by curating a great online selection as well.
The Malin Jacket with Faux Fur Trim is our last chic pick. This bump-friendly jacket is a great layering piece for all your maternity gear and features a fleece-lined hood trimmed with fur. Fully lined with a removable insert, you can choose how warm or cool you want to be during and after your pregnancy as well. Drawstrings at the waist can be tightened to enhance and flatter your bump and the Dark Army Green color is the perfect shade to add a contemporary vibe to all your looks.
