Trend Alert // Prints + Stripes

prints-trendFashionistas and runway reports agree: prints are taking center stage when it comes to spring trends. Whether it’s floral, plaid, animal or striped, prints are everywhere from tops and dresses to shoes and accessories.

Olivia Capone Myers, Design Director for A Pea in the Pod, touches on this exciting trend: “Impactful prints are an easy way to add a little punch to your wardrobe. Prints are great to wear during your pregnancy and add an element femininity and playfulness to simple silhouettes. There are so many options to try this spring.”

Boho Chic

twlSpring is the perfect time to exhibit boho chic style that hits on all of the beautiful, warm-weather trends. From pretty printed blouses and distressed jeans to flowing maxi dresses and long and lean maxi skirts, embrace your growing shape in light and airy styles that embrace delicate details and gauzy fabrics. Easy to accessorize – with must-have neutral booties or strappy sandals – boho is the way to go morning, noon and night.

Animal Addiction

From chic maternity dresses to flattering tops, animal print – think leopard, cheetah and snake – makes a standout statement in a neutral, go-with-anything kind of way. From basic color palettes of blacks, browns and creams to electric blues and cooling steel grays, they’re must for your maternity closet.

Cool Contrast: Stripes vs. Prints

Evident in their lasting presence on all of the major runways, stripes are here to stay. Whether horizontal, vertical, wide or narrow, stripes are actually flattering to your bump. Perfect on anything from tops to accessories to this super flattering maternity dress, stripes are still high on our fashion radar.

In contrast, we also adore another classic, the animal print, when done right. For your baby shower or a night out with the girls, play up your sassy side in this animal print maternity dress. And if you dare to do both, mix and match stripes and animal prints together for a look that’s incredibly “now.”

Fashion Cravings

When a fabulous maternity dress can easily transition from day-to-night or work-to-play, we are so in. The flattering fit-and-flare silhouette will give your bump a gorgeous shape while the on-trend leopard print is this season’s must-have neutral. Keep warm with the addition of opaque black tights along with chic accompaniments such as a fitted blazer, sexy heels or luxe booties.

Pretty in Prints

Prints are taking center stage this season from gorgeous black and white graphics to animal styles and abstract designs. Be it a dress or a top, prints are a fabulous way to showcase your bump in gorgeous patterns that are anything but ordinary. Try pairing these pieces with minimal accessories including delicate jewels such as hoops or a long necklace; nude heels or black booties; and finally, sleek denim or pointe pants that let the prints themselves stand out in the crowd.
