Winter fashion during pregnancy is all about the COAT!!! Invest in a well fitted coat and you can turn any simple outfit into an exquisite one! I must admit I spent most of my later months of pregnancy in my burberry wool trench coat! When it comes to stylish coats that are well fitted and classic that bucks all trends and lasts over time you really can’t go past Burberry. Having a decent coat really does save time especially on winter days when you can’t really be bothered, team a pair of jeans and teeshirt with a stylish coat and voila you are ready to do a photoshoot for Vogue or Harpers Bazaar!! Likewise put a stylish coat over a simple maternity dress and you have instant glam! Take inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge who spent most of her pregnancy in a number of pretty and very stylish coats. Here are some examples of my favourite brands of coats!
The other essential must in any pregnant woman’s wardrobe is definitely a pair of comfy trusted jeans. Even before my pregnancy I practically lived in my jeans they were a staple of my wardrobe and hey why should that change when I got pregnant! So as soon as I couldn’t squeeze myself into my everyday jeans (trust me I hanged on for as long as possible) I knew it was time to invest in a decent pair of maternity jean! I wouldn’t go crazy and buy heaps just a couple to get you through your pregnancy is fine as you can’t really re-wear these after pregnancy. Luckily for me my favourite brand of jeans J Brand have a wonderful selection of maternity jeans as well that are just as comfy as the originals ones!! Trust me you wont be disappointed they have great durability as well!! The other brand I love and highly rate is the Paige jeans and like J Brand they also carry a number of maternity jeans and the fit of these jeans are just superb!
Lastly the only other items during winter you would need, to look like a yummy mummy-to-be is a cape or poncho that drapes over the belly without drawing attention to it!
Another example of working with your ever growing belly instead of against it! Not only will this keep you warm in winter it is also super comfy because it loosely drapes over your body! Wear it over leggings and you are ready for a no fuss stylish look.
The other item I loved to wear during my winter pregnancy was my trusty Burberry scarf. Scarves can transform your boring outfit into a stylish one! Add a bit of colour to a grey or black dress with a print or bright scarf and you will have even Anna Wintour smiling!!! Also scarves are great at drawing attention away from your ever growing belly, perfect for days when you are feeling a bit self conscious about your changing body shape!! Which for me was nearly every day because I felt short and stumpy with a growing belly so by throwing on a nice scarf over my belly for some reason made me feel more glamorous!
I end with just one message, enjoy and have fun dressing your belly through winter there are so many possibilities for you to try! Keep stylish until next time all my yummy mummies☺️
