Statement maternity sweaters are hot for the cool months ahead. Luxe embellishments, chunky cables and fun graphic prints (like lips, stars and hearts) take maternity sweaters to the next level. I love that you can dress up a fun sweater with heels and leather leggings or go completely downtown chic with destructed denim and booties. I always invest in statement pieces every season, since they’re fun to build outfits with, and they become a reflection of my own personality.
I think maternity basics are a necessary foundation in any woman’s pregnancy wardrobe. With that said, I also believe that investing in stand-out pieces make your style more personalized. Like their name suggests, they make a statement! You’ll get mileage out of a great maternity sweater too, since they’re designed with the bump in mind, look great layered AND will look just as cute later, sans baby bump. You know I’m all about reinventing my favorite pieces each season! And, you can too. -Olivia

Rebecca Minkoff has been a favorite designer of mine for some time, and I’m excited that we at Destination Maternity have collaborated with her on a new maternity collection, exclusive to A Pea in the Pod and launching this week.
Rebecca is a mother herself and actually worked on this line during her second pregnancy this past year, so she definitely had maternity style on the mind! That’s what is great about this specific collaboration. Rebecca Minkoff is admired by celebrities, but now our customers have the chance to fall in love with true pregnancy fashion. Her globally recognized brand is accessible to you and I love proving that pregnant women do not need to lose their sense of style when they’re expecting!
This maternity collection brings Rebecca’s edgy, yet chic style sensibility to our brand, which I believe fits nicely amongst our other featured designers. Some of my favorite stands outs from the collection are the soft printed maternity pant, modern maternity camisole and fuchsia silk maternity dress. What’s great about these pieces and the complete assortment is how versatile they are. I always say it, I know, but for me being a busy working mom, having that ability to mix and match pieces to create different looks is crucial! Rebecca’s ready-to-wear options make getting dressed easy (and fun) to do. -Olivia

The Jogger is one of my favorite new spin on pants. It’s the fashionista’s new go-to item that is also perfect for preggonista’s since it’s über comfortable and super chic. To get the look right for maternity, you can either dress up the jogger with a fitted top and gladiators, or play it casually cool with a graphic tee and the shoe of the moment: the slip-on sneaker. This is a seriously stylish silhouette that is not only versatile, but easy to wear for expecting mamas. -Olivia

She has perfected a chic yet relaxed look and works the Wendy Bellissimo pieces into her wardrobe seamlessly. I just love, love, love how it all comes together- hope you do too! -Olivia

You may be wondering what to wear during the beginning weeks and months of your pregnancy while staying comfortable and cool during the summer months. No need to fret; here are our top 3 must have summer styles for the new mom-to-be!
- Maternity Jeans
Pants are the first piece of clothing to feel snug. Invest in great fitting maternity jeans to keep you feeling comfortable right from the start! We suggest a jean with our patented Secret Fit Belly® which keeps your belly looking smooth and provides support throughout all stages of your pregnancy. Try our top rated maternity jeans, like the Jessica Simpson Secret Fit Belly® 5 Pocket Skinny Leg Maternity Jeans and the 7 For All Mankind Secret Fit Belly® 5 Pocket Maternity Jeans.
- Light-weight tanks and tees
Basic tees and tanks with side ruching are perfect to wear in the summer weather to show off your newest accessory: your bump! Whether you are wearing them with jeans, a maxi skirt, or under a blazer or jean jacket, you’ll love the comfort and versatility. We love the Reversible Side Ruched Maternity Tank Top , which comes in many colors and can be worn as either a v-neck or scoop neck. Our Short Sleeve Scoop Neck Side Ruched Maternity T Shirt is a go-to summer basic for every occasion.
- Leggings and Yoga Pants
Whether you’re taking prenatal yoga, going for a run or running errands, leggings and yoga pants are perfect for when you are on the move and are maternity staples.

Ordering french fries to cure your craving the closest you have been getting to being “Paris-Chic”? Well, put down the fry & pick up French fashion à la Motherhood Maternity.
Parisian women have this ability to be both stylish & yet uncomplicated. Simple items like this BumpStart black cardigan can crisp up any t-shirt & jeans… voila you look European effortless!
Our Indigo Blue White Jeans with Secret Fit Belly® go with any striped, solid, polka dotted top you throw with it, plus the slimming legs & 5 pocket additions add flair that the French may call soigné.
Pregnancy poses a problem for plane-hopping, so if you can’t go to Paris, then stop by your local coffee shop or “café” wearing our Secret Fit Belly® tiered maternity skirt (in blue or white) & this scoop neck top, which comes in red or blue stripes. Layer it with the Jessica Simpson Maternity denim jacket & order your café au lait with Parisian pride.
If you want to take a less subtle approach & flaunt full-on French fashion this “la mesure d’aimer c’est d’aimer sans mesure” t-shirt is perfect. It translates to, “the measure of love is to love without measure.” Do you know what else you will “aimer”? This “Ooh La La” white & red striped tee, which will have you saying, “oui, oui- too cute!”
So, mademoiselle, throw on this infinity scarf- throw out the fries & hop aboard for a journey towards Paris-Chic, where your first stop for style is here!
