Five Tips for a Seamless Transition Into Spring

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Cold, blustery days are almost gone and warmer temperatures will soon be on their way. Here are five fashion tips to follow for an easy transition into spring:

  • Pretty Pastels: Glamour Magazine says pastels are one of the most “wearable trends” from the Spring 2014 runways. Add some color into your wardrobe with light and airy sweaters or bright colored denim that can easily transition you into spring.
  • Flower Power: Incorporate some floral prints like this ultra-feminine, Jessica Simpson floral blouse to complement key pieces of your wardrobe.
  • The Novel Jacket: Swap your winter coat for a lighter option.  Ditch heavier outerwear for a jacket with a sleek and edgy vibe; think faux-leather and Moto jackets.
  • The Finishing Touch: Nail polish is a fun and easy way to incorporate the trendiest spring colors into your wardrobe. Try one of our new Butter London nail lacquers in a variety of on-trend shades.

Kristin Cavallari knows a thing or two about maternity style, especially now that baby number two is on the way! Kristin opts for chic ensembles that combine expertly tailored wardrobe essentials with trend-driven pieces. Kristin demonstrates this beautifully by pairing a flattering blazer with fashion-forward leather leggings. Pointy toe heels and simple jewelry pull the entire outfit together.

Get the look with our on-trend and super-sleek Citizens of Humanity coated jeans. Layer a bump-flattering side ruched tee under our Isabella Oliver’s maternity jacket to perfect your polished look. Add a pair of statement earrings and heels for a look that can easily go 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

Belly Talk: Find your Perfect Fit

When pregnant, the first item of clothing you’ll notice becoming a bit snug is your pants. Rather than turn to an endless supply of sweatpants and baggy bottoms, our selection of affordable denim, pants, shorts and skirts offer belly panels of all different shapes and sizes that are suited to your desire of comfort.

From full coverage panels and no bellies to fold overs, there’s a belly style you will long to live in. Though our patented Secret Fit Belly®, which offers seamless full coverage and support, is our most popular belly, our helpful Belly Panel Guide offers the information you need to choose the panel you want.

Here’s a snapshot of what we have to offer:

secret fit belly

The Secret Fit Belly® provides full coverage and supports by extending over the entire belly. It can also be folded down to be worn comfortably under the belly, while the smooth, lightweight
fabric maternity panel is soft, supportive and will grow with you. It is great for all three trimesters as well as after the baby is born.

under belly

 The Under Belly sits below the belly. Made with a wide elastic band covered by a soft and stretchy cotton-spandex fabric, this maternity panel contours and supports your belly where you need it most while offering minimal coverage. This belly is ideal for early to mid-pregnancy.

fold over belly

Our Fold Over Belly has a discreetly blended maternity panel with a non-maternity look for all day comfort when active and on the go. This belly is ideal throughout your pregnancy.

 Secret Fit Under Belly

Our Secret Fit Under Belly is a constructed waist featuring elastic inside with small gussets that provide a comfortable stretch, and it sits below the belly for moderate coverage. This belly is ideal for all three trimesters as well as after the baby is born.

Do-No-Wrong Denim

There’s not much that can’t be done with denim; and when it comes to maternity, we absolutely adore it. From dresses and tops to distressed shorts and skinny jeans, denim is a go-to style for any mom-to-be. Try pairing two pieces together – a light chambray top with a pair of dark wash bottoms – or go for one look in a button down denim shirt dress. Accessorized with any and all colors galore, it’s a year-round trend that is never going to go out of style.

More than Just Jeans

maternity denim

Yes, we adore our maternity jeans; ultra-comfortable and stylish, they take us through the whole nine months and beyond. However, for a different spin, dare to do denim in an unexpected way! From shirts and jackets to vests and dresses, denim has found an on-trend home on much more than your basic bottoms. Mixed together – in varying washes such as indigo and chambray – or worn separately with pops of bright hues, denim is a quintessential style maker 12 months-a-year.
