Five Tips for a Seamless Transition Into Spring

Cold, blustery days are almost gone and warmer temperatures will soon be on their way. Here are five fashion tips to follow for an easy transition into spring:

1. Pretty Pastels: Glamour Magazine says pastels are one of the most “wearable trends” from the Spring 2014 runways. Add some color into your wardrobe with light and airy sweaters or bright colored denim that can easily transition you into spring.

2. Flower Power: Incorporate some floral prints like this ultra-feminine, Jessica Simpson floral blouse to complement key pieces of your wardrobe.

3. Change Up Your Layers: Instead of bulky sweaters and blazers, add a bright cardigan or a short-sleeved sweater to give your outfit a fresh look.

4. The Novel Jacket: Swap your winter coat for a lighter option.  Ditch heavier outerwear for a jacket with a sleek and edgy vibe; think faux-leather and Moto jackets.

5. The Finishing Touch: Nail polish is a fun and easy way to incorporate the trendiest spring colors into your wardrobe. Try one of our new Butter London nail lacquers in a variety of on-trend shades.

Originally from New Zealand, Rebecca Taylor and business partner Elizabeth Bugdaycay came to New York City and launched the Rebecca Taylor brand for the contemporary, evolving modern woman.  Her clothes are most known for their flattering silhouettes, impressive embellishments and details, and unique color combinations and prints that allow you to add  your own individual style.  With celebrity customers including Rashida Jones, Reese Witherspoon, and Duchess Catherine Middleton, the brand has established itself as feminine and refined.  Destination Maternity offers a variety of Rebecca Taylor’s bump-flattering tunics, blouses and tops that can be worn both during and after pregnancy. The sophisticated color palette of neutral white, navy, black and grey can easily take you from desk to dinner.

Here, Rebecca answers five questions about her brand, style and inspiration:

Describe your brand in three words.

“Modern, feminine, refined.”

What inspires you when designing?

“I am inspired by so many things every day – New York, music, art, film.”

What are the three key pieces every mom-to-be should own?

“Can’t go wrong with the basics: comfortable yet cool sneakers, striped tees, and a great pair of jeans. “

We are loving your Sleeveless Embellished Maternity Blouse. Tell us how you would style it.

“Just a simple bottom to let the top take center stage.”

What celebrity mom or mom-to-be do you admire for their fashion choices?

“Gwen Stefani – she always looks amazing!”

Boho Chic

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.

Tunic Love!

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 and skinny jeans. 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.

Animal Addiction

maternity clothesAll over the runways, and straight into your hands, animal prints have taken center stage this fall and upcoming winter season. 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.

From the Neck Up!

maternity topsDraped, cowl or in a wide-neck V, necklines that frame and flatter are a mom-to-be’s best friend. Adding interest to otherwise simple silhouettes, a pretty neckline does wonders to draw people’s eyes up to your beautiful, glowing face. Accented by a trendy pair of earring or a dainty pendant necklace, these tops, tees, sweaters and dresses showcase soft and feminine necklines you’re sure to love.

Blue Beauties

maternity clothesAn instant way to brighten up your look, cool blues are making themselves known this season. An ideal color to pair with grounding neutrals – such as black, brown and white – we love how blue can exude a bold and bright pop of color or tone things down in a dark and mysterious shade. Flattering on just about every skin tone, it would be a shame to miss out on this cooling hue.

Pretty in Prints

maternity clothes

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.
