These hot looks are guaranteed to deliver a bump of confidence to your everyday maternity wardrobe.
Head-to-toe florals and graphic patterns are extending beyond summer and straight into autumn. What makes them of-the-moment: The rich colors are paired with gauzy layers that keep the look floaty and feminine. Elly Brown, a mom of three and a fashion blogger adds, “I prefer small prints, rather than big ones, to create the illusion of your body looking smaller.” Keep accessories neutral to let the patterns shine.
Any outfit is more interesting when you add a topper. And this is one wardrobe addition that doesn’t have to be cut for maternity to fit, says L.A.–based celeb stylist Seth Chernoff. Jackets can be worn post-bump, so splurge if you want!

Ease is essential during pregnancy, and stretchy, bodycon dresses are just that. This form-fitting style shows off your bump in a fun, “Hey, world, I’m expecting!” way. To bring this look into daytime, pair your dress with cute sneakers instead of heels.
Isn’t this how we all really live? Even the most designer-loving celebs invest in clothes they can really move in. Former The Hills costar Whitney Port says, “Maternity is all about comfort for me.” Leggings, a sweatshirt, and a hat nail the relaxed vibe.
