The Wendy Bellissimo for Destination Maternity® Collection to Launch in September!

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Wendy Bellissimo, the celebrated family lifestyle expert and designer. Known for her expertise in chic and sophisticated nursery décor and apparel that has garnered a loyal following of celebrity moms along with her established baby and children’s clothing collections, Wendy marks her first foray into maternity wear with The Wendy Bellissimo for Destination Maternity® Collection. The clothing and accessories line, offering a relaxed, California vibe inspired by the place Wendy and her family call home, is set to launch September 2014 at Destination Maternity® and Motherhood Maternity® stores nationwide.

Wendy’s signature boho-chic aesthetic and own wardrobe staples inform the collection which is designed to offer both comfort and style for moms-to-be. The collection features everyday, easy-wearing essentials like billowy maxi-dresses, layering tops, on-trend denim with double zipper front pockets, tribal-inspired sweaters, moto jackets and scarves. The pieces can be worn together for a head-to-toe look that is fresh and fashion forward or used as accent pieces that can be layered into both mom-to-be’s maternity and existing wardrobes.

Wendy Bellissimo has defined the idea that becoming a mom is an opportunity to enhance your own sense of style, not leave it behind. Stemming from her California family lifestyle, and built upon her traditional Connecticut roots, Wendy has cultivated a look that is a balance of chic, eclectic style with a certain sense of comfort and ease.This collection, created exclusively for Destination Maternity®, is a true extension of that spirit. Wendy weighs in on her unique design aesthetic: “In all of my designs, from home décor to clothing, I find a way to incorporate relaxed, approachable style elements without over-complicating a look.”

The 26-piece apparel and accessories collection will be available beginning September 2014 at Destination Maternity® and Motherhood Maternity® stores and online at www.DestinationMaternity.com and www.motherhood.com.

Here is a sneak peek of the fabulous fashion to come:

Most Craved Monday

maternity dresses

A simple shape; a simple stripe; a simple color palette – sometimes there’s nothing better. Formfitting thanks to ultra-stretchy fabric that will flatter your shape, these fabulous dresses do the job when it comes to beautiful looks with effortless appeal.

The navy and khaki color duo of this BCBGMAXAZRIA 3/4 sleeve striped maternity dress is a classic combination, while the black and blue stripes of this elbow sleeve button detail maternity dress adds a pop of bold to the simple t-shirt shirt style. Easy to accessorize for day – tights, booties and a chunky knit – or night – heels, bangles and a cropped leather jacket – it’s a classic style you will adore.

Looks We Love

Skinny pants paired with a long and flowing top is the perfect daytime look for year-round wear. We adore how the bright red hue of these Secret Fit Belly® 5 pocket skinny leg maternity pants pops against the contrast of blue in our long sleeve convertible sleeve maternity top. Both available in alternate colors, mix and match these maternity wardrobe must-haves for a fabulous array of looks you are sure to love.

From Us to You…

We’re Thankful For…

As we prepare the turkey, decorate the house and welcome in loved ones from near and far, it’s so easy to forget the simple meaning behind Thanksgiving.

So, in honor of all the good things in our lives, we asked Destination Maternity employees what they’re most thankful for this season. From families to jobs to the simple things in life, it’s beautiful to see what our peers are most grateful for this season.

 HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Cowl On

maternity tops

Whether formfitting or flowing, many of our tops and dresses have one thing in common this season: notable necklines, mainly in the form of cowls. Much like a turtleneck, yet with room to breathe, we love how this neckline frames your face and draws the onlooker’s eye upwards. Whether solid, striped or a soft cable knit, we encourage you to change up your neckline into a style that aims to flatter.

Four Things

Ah, it’s the weekend before the unofficial start to the holiday season! Beginning with Thanksgiving and ending with a New Year’s kiss, we adore this time of year. Whether you have travel plans galore or parties to attend, prior to the (beloved) chaos that’s about to take over, be sure to dive into some rest and relaxation. From stirring up a soul-warming bowl of soup to purchasing that last perfect piece for the nursery, here are our picks for you to eat, wear, do and nest this weekend.

The last thing you want to do before Thanksgiving is slave over dinner; make life easy – and delicious – with a comforting bowl of Tomato Tortellini Soup.

Lightweight, silky and flowing with flattery, this ¾ Sleeve Button Detail Maternity Blouse is a timeless addition to your maternity wardrobe.

It’s absolutely amazing how a few simple strokes of your makeup brush can dramatically enhance your already beautiful features.

A whimsically colorful addition to the nursery, tell your little one “You Are My Sunshine” every day of their little life.

The Weekly Find

Welcome to The Weekly Find, featuring a favorite new arrival paired with this, and that.

This week’s find: Ella Moss Short Sleeve Pleather Trim Maternity Top

Why it’s a winner: This fabulous maternity top gorgeously embodies the leather trend that has taken over this season. A sexy option for night (paired with skinny maternity jeans and heels), and also a chic choice for day (softened by a chunky knit and relaxed boyfriend denim), it’s (faux) leather at its best.

Pair it with this: Indigo Rein Secret Fit Belly® Slim Fit Skinny Leg Maternity Jeans in grey, and that: Cascade Bi-Stretch Suiting Maternity Jacket.
