Inspiration Behind the Design: A Pea in the Pod’s Spring Collection

Property of Destination Maternity Corporation

A Pea in the Pod’s spring collection evokes a casual, nautical style that is perfect for warmer weather.  From chambray blues and preppy stripes to comfortable linen fabrics, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team focused on sea-inspired colors for this season’s collection:

“Our ‘Port of Call’ delivery for spring is based on sea faring islands with a soft vintage feel. The collection includes a wide array of bold stripes, crochet work, mixed media, mosaic and paisley prints paired with light wash denim. An indigo and chambray blue color story is the foundation of this group with pops of fuchsia and an increasing presence of white, which we will continue into the summer season.”

Key pieces include a flowy, 3/4 Sleeve Dress in a blue and white mosaic print, perfect for your spring baby shower. Spring’s must-have chambray convertible sleeve shirt creates a casual-chic look when paired with our Secret Fit Belly® Linen Cargo Pocket Maternity Crop Pants. Our bump-flattering Cap Sleeve Boat Neck Maternity T Shirt combined with our Secret Fit Belly® Cuffed Maternity Crop Jeans will keep you both comfortable and stylish throughout the season

Seasonal Sweaters

maternity sweatersAs the frigid cold moves out and the warmer temps take over, heavy knits and sweaters will soon head into hibernation. With a keen eye still on layering, try a lightweight sweater in seasonal styles that will carry you through the transitional weather. From short sleeves to sleeveless, pretty patterns, breathable fabrics and flattering silhouettes replace the bulkiness of winter’s chunky toppers. Sleek, stylish and sophisticated, they are ready and waiting to frame and flatter your bump.

Cold Weather Cravings: Coats!

The chill of the cold weather months has us longing for outwear that provides the cozy comfort we need. As warm as they are stylish, our winter maternity coats come in a range of styles and fits for all.

Wrap up your bump in a super plush puffer style or try a wool coat with a belted waist. For a fashion forward approach, go for an on-trend military design with a cozy lining. Whether you try one or more , you (and your little one) will stay happy and warm all season long.

The Look for Less: Polka Dots

The chic color combination of black and white never goes out of style. Bring polka dots into the mix and you’ve got instant sophistication.

We love the look of this Ron Herman cashmere sweater. Soft and luxurious, it’s a piece that can take you from work to play in seconds flat. Paired with super skinny J Brand black jeans, the look is put-together and polished.

Get the look for less with our ¾ sleeve side ruched maternity sweater. The flattering side ruching helps to accentuate your bump while the dot print adds a hint of playfulness. Pair this sweater with our Secret Fit Belly® ponte super soft skinny leg maternity pants for an outfit that’s sleek, incredibly comfortable and under $70!

Finally, for some extra bits and pieces of versatility, add a strand of pearls and a pair of patent heels to dress it up, or throw on a blazer and pair of brightly colored flats for a more understated approach.

The versatility of fall’s hottest hue, pale pink, is both refreshing and exciting and can be paired with almost any color. Blocked out with shades of red or complimented with a variety of earth tones, this color truly goes the distance.

Perfect for your cold-weather wardrobe, this soft and cozy maternity sweater will keep you both comfortable and stylish. For a striking contrast, try the richer tone in the color family, burgundy. This simple and chic long sleeve maternity top is bold, beautiful, deliciously saturated and will pair perfectly with dark washed skinnies.

Epitomizing the savory flavors of fall, we can’t wait to dip a chip into Roasted Sweet Potato and Toasted Sage Dip.

 Call it the perfect thing to wear to just about, well, anything, this Long Sleeve Sash Belt Maternity Tunic is sure to brighten up a chilly day.

 Chic and understated with a touch of glam, a ponytail is our idea of weekending; style your own in five ways not meant for the gym.

 A whimsical touch to your little one’s nursery, this DIY “Up Up and Away!” mobile is one of the cutest we’ve seen.

Color Crush: Black, Brown & Ivory

A canvas of dark and light neutrals sets a dramatic tone, be it a cozy reading nook or a cozy sweater jacket. Stay warm and look chic in this striped chunky knit by LINE, which beautifully combines black, brown and ivory hues.

Cool Contrast: Cashmere vs. Tweed

maternity jacket

It’s officially fall! This season, we long for the plush comfort of luxurious cashmere. The ultimate in softness, cashmere keeps you both warm and comfortable. We adore the draping of this maternity sweater in a fall-perfect oatmeal shade.

In contrast, cooler temperatures have us longing for tweed such as this expertly cut maternity jacket, which you will wear all season long. The rough yet intricate weaving of this tried and true fabric is always a seasonal favorite, perfect for the office or an outdoor fall festival. Whether structured in tweed or comforted by cashmere, both are must-haves this season.
