Maternity Fashion Trends 2013

First rule of thumb don’t try and hide being pregnant, it’s hip to be pregnant these days. I know in the beginning it’s rough (are you fat are you pregnant) but by 4 months you should be in the safe zone and ready to flaunt your new baby bump. Today it’s much more fashionable to show off your belly than to hide it under layers of clothes.

Some trends to experiment with are:

Hippy Chic – Now it the time to let your hair down and experiment with the hippy look. Free flowing skirts, maxi dresses, colorful tunics, oversized cardigans, simple cotton dresses, empire waisted dresses worn over leggings. From polka dots, to stripes, to solid colors, the above-the-knee dresses, flat sandals, and layered necklaces are hippy chic.

Bold Accessories – Keep the bold on top! A colorful scarf, big necklaces, anything that accentuates the shoulders and bust line are flattering.  Pair a brightly colored over-sized bag with a fedora.

Wear Jeans – Denim is hot hot hot for preggo ladies. Citizen of Humanity, Paige Denim, Seven For Mankind and Earl Jeans have maternity lines, as well as Juicy, in a variety of denim washes. Wear your maternity jeans low-slung, embroidered and slimming with contrasting washes. Or opt for skinny jeans and form-fitting tops.

Suits – With maternity suits you can easily switch from day to night. You can dress them down with a t-shirt for a day or add a silk blouse or tunic for the night. The most charming maternity suits are made of wool and cotton, with blouses made of charmeuse and chiffon. Menswear plaids and pinstripes also look quite good and polished on pregnant women. The oversized blazer is a pregnant woman’s best friend.

Lastly, keep your clothes on. The most unattractive thing on a pregnant woman is an under dressed pregnant woman. No half tops and absolutely no daisy dukes! Stick to those rules and you will be fashionable and pregnant.
