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

Looks We Love

maternity dressA quintessential spring look, this Sleeveless Ruffle Front Maternity Dress is waiting to be worn to any and all of your warm-weather soirees. In a pretty floral print – in a rosy pink or navy and white – we adore its face-framing V-neck and flattering cascading ruffle. Accessorize with neutral platform heels, an armful of bangles and your gorgeous glow.

Color Crush: Night Sky

Soothing yet mysterious; dark yet vibrant, we’re crushing on the night sky’s gorgeous luster. Much like the starry atmosphere, the black wish print of this 3/4 sleeve tie front maternity tunic exemplifies a similar moody feel in a flattering style ideal for day or night.

Most Craved Monday

Breathing a fresh breathe of air into the season’s cold temps, these maternity sweaters are hitting all of the high notes. From a fabulous chevron stripe in classic color combinations, to the beloved high-low hem and thick, flattering stripes with a bump-shaping tie, they are both waiting for your favorite skinny jeans and leggings.

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.

Fashion Cravings

If you asked us what the quintessential look for the holidays would be, this entire ensemble is it! A simple silhouette of skinny bottoms, a fitted blazer and a flattering blouse, the cool black and white palette is simply icing on the cake. Faux leather adds a polished edge to these SOLD Design lab Secret Fit Belly® maternity pants, while the double breast and subtle pattern take this maternity jacket to the next level. Anchored by a silky top with a bit of swing, and we’re ready to party!

Looks We Love

Take on the day in this fall-ready outfit that has swooning. A formfitting and comfortable convertible sleeve maternity top with a flattering cowl neck and stripe detail is the perfect piece for layering under lightweight jackets. And when paired with Secret Fit Belly® skinny leg maternity pants in a deeply rich wine hue, it’s a look of sheer perfection.

Fashion Cravings

When a fabulous maternity dress can easily transition from day-to-night or work-to-play, we are so in. The flattering fit-and-flare silhouette will give your bump a gorgeous shape while the on-trend leopard print is this season’s must-have neutral. Keep warm with the addition of opaque black tights along with chic accompaniments such as a fitted blazer, sexy heels or luxe booties.

The Look For Less: Casual, Cool & Super Luxe

This fall is all about casual-cool style. What better way to rock the trend than with a sleek leather jacket, effortless tee and of-the-moment destructed jeans? And better yet, get this luxe look for less without breaking the bank!

Our Jessica Simpson Faux Leather Maternity Jacket’s super flattering cut and menswear inspired lapel will have you looking stylish all season long. Love the look of a designer graphic tee? Try our floral printed maternity top for a feminine touch for a fraction of the price. And for that much-needed destructed denim you’ve been longing for, don’t bother paying premium prices when you can get the same look – plus the added comfort of our patented Secret Fit Belly® – with our Celebrity Pink Destructed Skinnies.
