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.

L by JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT to Launch this Spring

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Not only is Jennifer Love Hewitt an actress and mother-to-be, she is now adding the title of designer to the list! With an expected launch for spring 2014 and in collaboration with A Pea in the Pod®, JLH has created an exclusive capsule collection entitled, L by JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT!

“Like other moms-to-be, I had to dress for my new figure but I hoped that wouldn’t mean sacrificing my personal style,” said Jennifer. To have the opportunity to bring my own perspective to such an established brand and to collaborate on a collection that other moms-to-be can wear and feel great in has made this time in my life even more special.”

The 15-piece collection will include comfy-chic separates in a soft color palette to be worn while pregnant and beyond including flowing maxi dresses, dressed-up leggings, casual and soft tees and a French terry jacket that is perfect for layering.

We are thrilled to welcome JLH into our family and cannot wait to purchase her easy-to-wear maternity styles!

First Trimester: And so it Begins!

maternity clothesThe first trimester is all about finding your comfort zone. For some, pregnancy is quite the shock – even if it was planned! The anticipation of a changing body is usually at the top of every woman’s mind. Most (if not all) of the clothing you have come to know will soon be obsolete. Rather than panic, the beginning of your pregnancy is prime time to stock up on the basics below.

Side Ruched Tees work to stay put while also framing and flattering your growing figure.

Secret Fit Belly® Leggings are the ultimate in maternity wear – everyday

Loungewear creates the comfort you crave while keeping you looking great, too.

Tummy Sleeve® allows you to continue to wear your beloved bottoms.
