Originally from New Zealand, Rebecca Taylor and business partner Elizabeth Bugdaycay came to New York City and launched the Rebecca Taylor brand for the contemporary, evolving modern woman.  Her clothes are most known for their flattering silhouettes, impressive embellishments and details, and unique color combinations and prints that allow you to add  your own individual style.  With celebrity customers including Rashida Jones, Reese Witherspoon, and Duchess Catherine Middleton, the brand has established itself as feminine and refined.  Destination Maternity offers a variety of Rebecca Taylor’s bump-flattering tunics, blouses and tops that can be worn both during and after pregnancy. The sophisticated color palette of neutral white, navy, black and grey can easily take you from desk to dinner.

Inspiration Behind the Design: A Pea in the Pod’s Spring Collection

Property of Destination Maternity Corporation

A Pea in the Pod’s spring collection evokes a casual, nautical style that is perfect for warmer weather.  From chambray blues and preppy stripes to comfortable linen fabrics, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team focused on sea-inspired colors for this season’s collection:

“Our ‘Port of Call’ delivery for spring is based on sea faring islands with a soft vintage feel. The collection includes a wide array of bold stripes, crochet work, mixed media, mosaic and paisley prints paired with light wash denim. An indigo and chambray blue color story is the foundation of this group with pops of fuchsia and an increasing presence of white, which we will continue into the summer season.”

Key pieces include a flowy, 3/4 Sleeve Dress in a blue and white mosaic print, perfect for your spring baby shower. Spring’s must-have chambray convertible sleeve shirt creates a casual-chic look when paired with our Secret Fit Belly® Linen Cargo Pocket Maternity Crop Pants. Our bump-flattering Cap Sleeve Boat Neck Maternity T Shirt combined with our Secret Fit Belly® Cuffed Maternity Crop Jeans will keep you both comfortable and stylish throughout the season

Animal Addiction

All over the runways, and straight into your hands, animal prints have taken center stage this fall and upcoming winter season. From chic maternity dresses to flattering tops, animal print – think leopard, cheetah and snake – makes a standout statement in a neutral, go-with-anything kind of way. From basic color palettes of blacks, browns and creams to electric blues and cooling steel grays, they’re must for your maternity closet.

From the Neck Up!

Draped, cowl or in a wide-neck V, necklines that frame and flatter are a mom-to-be’s best friend. Adding interest to otherwise simple silhouettes, a pretty neckline does wonders to draw people’s eyes up to your beautiful, glowing face. Accented by a trendy pair of earring or a dainty pendant necklace, these tops, tees, sweaters and dresses showcase soft and feminine necklines you’re sure to love.

Blue Beauties

An instant way to brighten up your look, cool blues are making themselves known this season. An ideal color to pair with grounding neutrals – such as black, brown and white – we love how blue can exude a bold and bright pop of color or tone things down in a dark and mysterious shade. Flattering on just about every skin tone, it would be a shame to miss out on this cooling hue.

Trending on Texture

Lace and crochet details add texture to this season’s coveted pieces that set them apart from day-to-day basics. Whether it’s all over, or just a hint of it here and there, texture adds interest to feminine silhouettes that show off your shape. Whether highlighting fall’s gem tone hues, basic black or winter whites, you will need little else but a flattering pair of pants or pencil skirt and a cool jacket to achieve must-have looks with a highlight on texture.
