Stylish Winter Maternity Staples

Winter Maternity Staples Every Expecting Modern Mom Should HaveWinter Maternity Staples Every Expecting Modern Mom Should HaveWe’ve seen our first snowfall this week here in the tri-state area (North East!) One of the few good things that come with a winter chill is that you need a new cold weather wardrobe! That means layers are a must. But… it shouldn’t mean that your style has to suffer when you’re expecting. The trick to maternity dressing, in general, is to start with a great any-season foundation and add on signature pieces that work for the weather, plus that speak to your style. I’ve put together some chic maternity staples that will keep you warm and looking your best. PLUS, many of the pieces can easily transition into the spring, so you’ll get tons of maternity style mileage from your wardrobe.

Start with a Secret Fit Belly® denim legging. It’s versatile and comfortable, especially with the smoothing support of the stretchy panel over your bump. The dark wash can be styled up or down for a more casual look. A classic shirt, designed just for your growing shape, is another maternity essential that can be easily layered for the winter and then restyled into spring. Add a cashmere maternity poncho like this Isabella Oliver Maternity one for a chic layered look that’s perfect for the season.

Accessorizing is a must! It’s a great way to complete your look by showcasing your own personal touch. A scarf and a warm wool hat add practical fashion. I’m also loving cross- body bags right now and dark nail lacquer like Butter’s LaMoss; this shade is completely of-the-moment, considering a deep MARSALA red is the pantone color of the year!

For a fresh fun touch add in some metallic or sparkle. A shiny layering tee or rose gold watch (loving this Marc Jacobs version) can easily freshen up a winter look, but also transition into spring. These next versatile pieces round out my list for stylish winter must-haves for mamas: a great chunky cardi and an all-weather parka!

Trend Alert // Bundle Up Your Bump

Trend Alert: Warm & CozyTrendAlert_WarmCozy_2-600x862When cold weather hits, it’s time to bundle up your bump! Super soft and comfy cable knit sweaters are hot (quite literally!) this season and perfect for wrapping you and the babe up. Layering your maternity look not only keeps you warm, but allows you to peel off a piece if your temperature rises!  Being pregnant means shifting from hot and cold quickly, so I always recommend wearing lots of layers. A draped stitched sweater can be worn over a seamless cami, plaid shirt over a light-weight sweatshirt, or layer on chunky scarves and hats for a fun look. Stay nice and cozy indoors or take your layered look outside for some fun in the frosty air. -Olivia
