Some of our favorite bloggers and fashion influencers have recently been donning maternity styles from one of our most-loved denim brands: AG Jeans- and we’re obsessed with each of their looks!

A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity both offer the latest styles and washes from AG Jeans translated specifically for a baby bump. With the Secret Fit Belly®, you can wear some of their iconic styles like The Stilt, The Legging or The Ballad and feel comfortable throughout your whole pregnancy and beyond.

I lived in my favorite AG Jeans when I was pregnant (and still wear them!) since the Secret Fit Belly® panel is comfortable and supportive even after baby.

So take a nod from an expecting fashionistas like Staci from Leather & Leops,  who paired her Destructed Skinny AG’s with an easy silk blouse, heels and a fringe bag. Keep it chic like Andrea from With Love… Andrea, who paired The Stilt with a fun top, flat, hat and cardigan. Go totally preppy like Connie who nailed the look with The Stilt Crop, striped tee and pretty ballet flat. We love them all, don’t you? -Olivia

Style 3 Ways: The Boyfriend Jean

The maternity boyfriend jean is a fashion favorite of mine! I love it because it’s slightly slouchy, but also fitted, can be styled up, styled down and looks amazing with just about any accessory. Our additional patented Secret Fit Belly® panel makes it super comfy and supportive, so you will want to live in these jeans. It’s very versatile, so I figured I would show you 3 ways to wear this look.

Finding an outfit for date night can be daunting, but the boyfriend jean is so cool on its own, that adding the right additions is all you need for the perfect evening. Try working it with a Henley, button up, or a pretty blouse. Add some bling, heels or booties, a great bag and finish with a classic red lip.

The boyfriend jean IS your weekend wardrobe, so making your Saturday and Sunday stylish is easy. Try your boyfriends with a graphic ruched tee, some easy sneaks and bright accessories. The fun colors make for a downtown vibe; the most put together, yet relaxed street style.

The third way to rock your boyfriend jeans is for a casual Friday ensemble. Adding some control with the right bras and camis makes the workday a comfortable one. Top off your look with a moto jacket or a maternity blazer, a structured bag and a sophisticated flat.

The boyfriend jean takes you from work, to dinner, to the weekend and beyond. There are countless ways to wear this style. I lived in mine during my pregnancy and I still wear them now. I love the belly panel. I just fold mine down now that I am no longer pregnant. On days I want a little control under my tops, I wear it as normal! They are that amazing. Happy styling. – Olivia

MATERNITY DENIM: BLOGGER STYLE

StyleFile-BloggerHudson-1_608x196StyleFile-BloggerHudson-2_608x826StyleFile-BloggerHudson-3_608x672

Here’s the latest round-up of some of my favorites expecting bloggers. This season it’s all about dark denim with cool coating or leather-like finishes and these ladies all rock the look perfectly with their bumps.

Bloggers Irina Bond of Bond Girl Glam, Ananda Saba of Super Fashionable and Andee Layne of The Honeybee all have such great style that it’s no surprise they continue to look completely chic throughout their pregnancies. Both Irina and Andee are sporting DL1961’s coated Secret Fit Belly® skinny jeans. I love that Irina totally tones them down with an easy tee and our chunky maternity cardi, and Andee goes rocker glam in an all-black ensemble with chic heels and a red felt hat. It goes to show that these jeans are versatile, especially since they can even be worn after baby too.

Another fashion-forward dark skinny look I love is on Ananda, who is wearing our Secret Fit Belly® AG black skinny maternity jeans. Here she styles them with a pretty pair of flats and chic leather jacket, totally nailing the desk to dinner look. Plus, her accessories are always on point with a fabulous red lip and cat eye shades.

FALL FAMILY FUN: PUMPKIN PICKING

Fall Fun- Pumpkin PickingHalloween FunHalloween Fun

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! It’s the perfect jacket weather, best for being outdoors with my boys and taking weekend day trips. It seems like everyone heads over to their local farmer’s market or pumpkin patch for a hayride and some family fun as soon as the first leaf changes. It always makes for a perfect family photo-op too, right? So, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share our family photos with you! (Share yours with us on our Instagram pages!)

My husband and I have a great routine of switching and taking turns snapping photos of each other with our son to capture our memories. A great tip he actually taught me was to takes lots of shots, and to keep them candid. We always take photos when the other is in motion and try not to set up every shot with us mugging in the camera. Capturing more candid photos make for more natural pictures, many times really capturing the true expression of the moment as opposed to a forced smile. Now don’t get me wrong, we always get some nice portraits, but more natural photos usually make for better images, especially if you want to hang them in your home.

Knowing that we would get some great photos during our trip to the pumpkin patch, I had to wear something befitting. In my usual style, I opted for a cool jacket, destructed jean, (yes, these are still maternity jeans! Just fold over the Secret Fit Belly® panel) pullover sweater, and dark shades – simple pieces that offer mucho style- perfect for our fall family day! -Olivia

CHIC THIS WEEK: DOUBLE DENIM

I seriously can’t get enough of denim this season! So of course one of my favorite looks is wearing a denim shirt with jeans. Getting the denim on denim look right is key. It’s as simple as making sure the washes are either very different OR only a slight shade off. Voila….double denim done right! xoxo- Olivia

STYLING THE SKINNY

I had a great opportunity to partner with Lucky Magazine and the lovely Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam on a denim style session last month. Jordan is such a beauty and has a great sense of style, so I was really excited to work with her and the Lucky team on the shoot. Watch and find out how we styled skinny jeans to create two completely different looks, both featuring the ultra-comfy patented Secret Fit Belly® panel. Look for part II of our collaboration featuring the boyfriend jean coming soon. –Olivia

Do-No-Wrong Denim

maternity 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.
