Trend Report: The Jacket

Whether cold weather decides to linger or we’re headed for a warm up, jackets continue to be the perfect complement to any outfit. Spotted on the runways in silhouettes ranging from draped to fitted, the jacket is a trend with true staying power.

Olivia Capone Myers, Design Director for A Pea in the Pod, describes the broad assortment of styles: “Bikers, bombers, blazers, parkas, cropped or cascading, we have the biggest trend of the season covered. Worn over dresses for work or with jeans for play, the jacket’s versatility makes it a wardrobe must for moms-to-be.”

Big on the trend scene and too beautiful ignore, lace details have found their way onto many of our maternity styles! From shoulder accents and long, lace sleeves to adding gorgeous, all-over texture to dresses and tops, lace is this season’s pièce de résistance. For day, keep it sweet and sophisticated with a lace-embellished maternity sweatshirt or a fabulous, not-so-basic tee, while a sultry dress or flattering peplum top peppered with lace adds the perfect touch.

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.

It’s DIY Day!

Although summer usually means sunny days and blue skies, warmer weather often guarantees some rain will be in the forecast. Use those indoor days to jump start your creativity!

We’re absolutely crazy over these homemade AND handmade baby blocks from Laura Normandin of Wren Handmade.  Laura, an artist and craftsperson from Brooklyn, creates one-of-a-kind art that she sells at local art shows. We were inspired by her use of pretty fabrics and the ease of her instructions; what more could you ask for?

Check out the full tutorial and DIY instructions on her blog. Happy crafting, happy baby!
