THE NEW NAUTICALS

stripes anchored in fashion. silhouettes that flow with the wind. ruffles that mirror the waves.

The dark days of winter give east coasters major summer envy, while the west coasters reach for the beach and the middle of the country craves the coastal breeze. If you can’t set sail on the sea, test the waters with these mid-winter nods to nautical!

Maternity clothing already breaks bounds when it comes to flattering your shape, because most styles are made to accentuate the bump. So remember when shopping, stripes are slimming. We repeat: stripes are slimming. So many mamas shy away from the stripe, especially horizontal ones, but this sweater is lightweight, still warm enough for the chill in the air, and cute as a button — literally, because it is ribbed with buttons.

In the warmer months we preach the LWD, aka the Little White Dress, as the fresher take on the LBD. What about in the cooler months? Shake it up with a new LBD — Little Blue Dress. The deep tone of navy is of course flattering, much in the way black is; it’s still sophisticated, yet playful and versatile for work to weekend wear. This maternity dress features pretty pleats and a flowing fit.

To stay in the blue family, we top off our list, well… with a top. Navy is a neutral that plays well with others blues, so this flutter sleeve maternity blouse looks amazing with jeans, as well as more office-ready pants. Not into ruffles? Don’t feel blue… (sorry for the pun!) we have more navy maternity blouses you’ll love.

In a boat, on land, at work- these are the new waves of nautical maternity looks.

PREGNANCY’S PERFECT PANTS

show a little ankle

Those who say nothing is perfect have never seen these ankle maternity pants. Why, you ask? Let us tell you the reasons.

  1. They are a skinny silhouette, which elongates the legs for a slimming effect, while still highlighting that beautiful bump.
  2. They are made with super stretch fabric, providing maternity style for all throughout your pregnancy and right into motherhood.
  3. They are extremely versatile, going from desk to dinner, flats to heels and brunch to breakfast. (Wait, what? You can sleep in them too? Well, maybe not… but they are comfy enough!)
  4. They come in a myriad of colors… yes, a myriad!
  5. They are one of our top-rated, mamas-in-the-making approved pants.

So, when we say show a little ankle, we mean every day. Sized from extra-small through extra-large, we know you will find your size. We don’t need to tell you all the places you’ll wear them or all the ways to style them… unless you want us to list that too!

Work, dinner, shopping, weekends, farmer’s market, picnic, friend’s house, apple picking ___ with heels, with sneaks, with mules, with flats, with ballet slippers, with shirts, with tanks, with tees, with plaids, with patterns, with graphics and definitely with this blouse. You get it… so now get it! And visit our Instagram too. #thisisgoingtobefun

We hope that everything comes up roses for you this year, especially your style choices.

They are forever trending, make an appearance in every season and help the bump bloom in fashion- pun intended! The blouses shown are perfect for now and next year too, just like perennials. With a light weight, convertible sleeves and above-the-bump tie string, they seamlessly go from maternity to motherhood. Click here for more floral fashions.

Plaid is the number one piece where boy meets girl. But, we’ve updated the flannel fashion to enhance your new curves, hitting below the bump for a flattering finish. Its rustic roots make it any-season appropriate, but plaid is especially stylish during the holidays due to classic color variations with a focus on red. So, you don’t need to borrow from the boys, because our plaid is pretty perfect. Click here to shop all plaid pieces.
