Rachel Pally Designer Profile Q & A

Describe your brand in three words.
EASY. SEXY. RELAXED.

When designing, what inspires you?
WOMEN!  I am inspired by women I know, women I meet, women I see in magazines and films.  I try to design a line that can appeal to all women, regardless of size, shape or age.

What are the three “key pieces” every mom-to-be should own?
Long black dress, Long black skirt, Maternity jeans

How would you style your favorite piece from the collection?
The striped cape top with a pair of black skinny jeans, black booties, a leather jacket and a statement necklace is casual and cute!

What celebrity mom or mom-to-be do you admire for their fashion choices?
I love how Nicole Richie dresses. She always looks so casual and yet so put together; she looks just as natural in a pair of flat sandals chasing after her little ones, as she does out on the town in sexy stilettos!

Trends We Love: Tunics & Leggings

maternity tunics and leggingsPossibly a mom-to-be’s best friend, the maternity tunic has just the right touch of comfy-meets-stylish! From solids and stripes to pretty prints and cozy knits, we can’t get enough of these long and lean looks that pair perfectly with your maternity leggings. Accessorize with a bump-framing blazer, this season’s over-the-knee boot and a statement piece of jewelry for a look that will last all day long – and into the night.

Comfortable, stylish and able to be paired with just about anything, leggings are another must-have trend. Whether cropped, full-length, leather or jersey-knit, leggings are a staple, meant to work for your wardrobe through all nine months and beyond.  Available with our patented Secret Fit Belly® or Underbelly, there is a style to fit your unique preference. Dress your leggings up by pairing them with a chic blouse and heels or go casual-cool with a denim jacket, tunic and flats.
