Classic Americana

Red, white, and blue are star colors this season, while stripes are always classic. Preppy plaids, jeans, and rolled-cuff khakis give you some relaxed looks for weekend barbecues in the yard.

The military look continues to be popular and versatile.  Light military jackets are great for the transition between winter and spring, or for layering when it’s cool outside.  Military accents can also be found on dresses, pants, and tops.

Spring 2010 Maternity Fashion Trends

Maternity designers are gearing up for Spring, and popping out all sorts of new trends. The one that seems to be getting the most (negative) attention is the one-piece maternity jumpsuit.  Granted, it may be comfortable (nothing pulling around your midsection) but even the most beautiful non-pregnant gal will have a hard time looking good in a jumpsuit. And, as My hormones made me do it points out, Pregnant Girl who has to pee every 5 seconds has no time for a jumpsuit!

Ripe Maternity ‘Deluxe’ Satin Dress at Nordstrom

So what should you be looking for?  Here are some Spring 2010 fashion trends for the mom-to-be that won’t have you shuddering in horror!

Sugar Candy Shades: Silky, floating fabrics in soft, feminine colors will definitely breath a sense of spring-time into your wardrobe. Bring on the frills, ruffles, and pastels!

Be Knotty! Knots, drapes, pleats, and other fun shapes reigned on the catwalks, says Made for Mums.

Cool T’s: When the weather starts to heat up, you’ll want some fun, comfy T-shirts to brighten up your outfit. The bright colors, draping, and graphics on these T’s keeps them from being boring!

T-shirts from the Gap

Eye-popping Prints: Dress your bump in flashy florals and bright geometric designs.  Let your wardrobe energize you this spring season!

Short Shorts (and not-so-short shorts): Your belly  may have ballooned, but you can still show off your leggy legs! If you’re brave enough, get yourself some edgy cuffed shorts. If you’re more conservative, some knee-length shorts should do the trick!
Super Shorts by Babes with Babies; Bermuda Shorts by Gap

If you can’t wear short shorts because you feel the need to wear compression stockings for dvt or just aren’t that thrilled with your ankles, then maybe jeans are a better choice.

Denim Jeans: More of a staple than a trend, jeans are always a great choice and look fabulous with just about anything. Now you’ve got lots of styles and colors to choose from, including stretch, skinny, bootleg, and flare.

Best Dressed Maternity Styles for the Holidays!

It’s holiday season, and even the pregnant ladies want to dress up for the family Hanukkah party, Christmas party at the office, or the big New Year’s bash. But when none of your party dresses fit like they used to, it’s time to start shopping again! Here are some gorgeous dresses to set you on the way to looking your holiday best! And you can avoid the holiday crush by browsing online from the comfort of your own home!

Japanese Weekend Sublimation dress from Blossom Maternity. The rosy foliage and square neck make this a stunning choice for any party! Or how about this sleek Olian dress, also from Blossom Maternity, in a rich cocoa:

Old Navy is always a good stop for stylish, affordable maternity clothes. This season’s dresses are simply gorgeous! My two favorites are this red knit front-tie dress and this luxurious satin paisley dress. You’ll be the belle of the ball!

If you want to mix ‘n’ match, Due Maternity has some fabulous dressy tops, like the Cobalt Floral Strapless top, silver, sequined silk cami, or pink Twig top.

Another pretty option, also from Old Navy, is this elegant voile tank with cut-out bodice that can be paired with your favorite skirt or pants. You might also like the satin puff sleeve top. Best part: They are only $12.50 each!

But what to wear with these fabulous tops? The Over Bump Skirt is a fabulous option, with kick pleats and belt. If you prefer pants, try these comfy velveteen pants or shiny straight leg trousers.


If you want something super sassy to show off your blooming figure, the Boob Shiny Maternity dress is a real attention-stealer. (Just don’t ask me why the designer is named Boob… must be a British thing. They do ship to the US, though!). For something more conservative and elegant, the Satin Bow Dress is stylish and and classy.

Of course, when in doubt, there’s always a little black dress. Strapless and V-neck wrap dress from Due Maternity. The Japanese Weekend wrap dress is lovely for something more modest. Also check out Liz Lange for Target, which has over 30 styles of black dresses at affordable prices!

If you need something for a black-tie event, you can’t go wrong with a floor-length, black stretch-lace dress. I also think this green lace gown with scalloped lace detail is beautiful… and LOVE the white ribbon gown!  I reccomend that you check out Maternity Clothing Fashion for lots more super gorgeous, glamorous dresses.

It’s chilly outside, so you’ll need something pretty and cozy to keep out the cold! This cardigan from Mimi Maternity ties in the front with a gorgeous satin bow. For full coverage, try their wool front button maternity coat.

And… just for fun (since not many of us can afford a$1,540 Amethyst maternity gown or $1,340 Gold fish gown):

Ooh la la!! Now THAT would make a statement at your office holiday party!

Pretty Me Maternity

A friend of mine has a new maternity website featuring stylish, comfortable clothes that won’t have you feeling like your new figure is on display. It’s called Pretty Me Maternity, and in their own words: “It took too many hours at too many stores to find something we felt comfortable wearing to a PTA meeting. So we decided to cull the best that all your favorite brands have to offer and bring it to you here!”

Cozy sweaters, pretty skirts, and jackets and dresses for special occasions!
