This season, our Holiday Collection is a mix of luxe styles that are high on drama. From jewels to beading to lustrous fabrics rendered in sexy silhouettes primed to show off your shape, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team drew on all things glam for this season’s collection:

“For the holiday season, we focused on the Baroque period, a time known for exquisite detail and ornamentation. Through the use of lace, shine and luxurious fabrics in black, gold and a beautiful Bordeaux red, each style creates a perfect ensemble for holiday parties and events.”

Key pieces include a cozy cable knit maternity sweater in shimmering black lurex; fashion’s current “it” look, faux leather trim maternity leggings; and a party-perfect jersey knit embellished maternity dress.

Showing off our favorite dresses that can be worn now (while pregnant) and later (while not), two of our gorgeous in-house gals, Copywriter Leigh Calarco and Online Account Manager Michelle Scarpato, model three holiday-perfect looks for the season.

First up from Motherhood Maternity, the ubiquitous stripe trend in a black and gray combo takes center stage. Perfect for the office holiday party, the fitted silhouette of this Long Sleeve Slim Fit Maternity Dress by Jessica Simpson flawlessly accentuates Leigh’s bump thanks to the soft and stretchy material. Equally as flattering on Michelle, she frames her figure with a fitted Cascade Blazer while both add a warm layer of tights, on-trend booties and gold accessories.

Whether you’re expecting now or been there, done that, stay tuned for a glam approach to pre- and postnatal dressing – holiday edition!
