With the days growing shorter and the weather cooler, everyone’s starting to bring out their soft knits, cozy sweaters, and great boots. This season offers the pregnant woman all the comforts you’re used to, plus this fall’s hottest styles and accessories.

Here are some of the great maternity fashions of the season!

Feminine Frills

A bow neck on top or some ruffles cascading down your belly add a lovely lady-like touch to any outfit. Add some slim pants and a cardigan for the office, or a slim skirt and heels if it’s time to party!

Bangin’ Boots

Choose your favorite… scrunchy boot, a mid-calf, or an over-the-knee boot, heels, flats, wedges, stilettos, rain boots, cowboy boots… They’re all great this season! Whatever your style preference is, get some great boots to complete every outfit!

Chunky Knits

Keep yourself toasty and trendy this fall with some super-cozy knit sweaters. To balance out the bulk on top, wear these sweaters with skinny pants or a shorter, tailored skirt.

Maxi Dress

Perfectly glamorous! The Maxi dress is definitely made for the pregnant woman’s delicious curves. The beautiful dresses below are great for a special occasion, but you can find casual maxi dresses too that are perfect for a day at the mall.

Over-sized Accessories

Your curvier figure will lend balance to chunkier jewelry and larger accessories than you might be used to.  Try wearing a simple jersey dress with a huge tiered necklace, chunky bangles, dangly earrings, or a fabulous, fits-everything-in-it bag. (Note: Wearing ONE of those at a time may be enough of a statement!)
