  • Alicia Keys Show Off Her Pregnant Belly and Maternity Style

    The gorgeous and talented Grammy award winning artist Alicia Keys is expecting her first child with handsome hubby Swizz Beatz this December! Her impeccable and unique style is always exciting to see, whether she is on the red carpet or out and about town. For the past few months we have been keeping a close eye on her pregnancy fashion. From her Mediterranean wedding to jet setting at the airport, her clothing choices have been stunning. As her due date nears, we look forward to seeing even more stylish options to show off her growing baby bump!

    In June of this year, Alicia and her hubby (fiancé at the time!) flew to South Africa to watch the World Cup. I am always on the lookout for great airport and traveling outfits, and so I was very excited to see her comfy chunky sweater paired with a cute v-neck tee. Traveling is all about achieving a high level of comfort while maintaining a cute and relaxed style. Like Alicia, pairing a cozy sweater with a lightweight t-shirt is a great option because it allows one to add or remove layers as temperatures in airports and planes change. For a similar look try the Maternity Baby Tee from Shade Maternity. Made of a lightweight cotton and spandex blend, it is super soft and stretchy. Cut extra along to allow room for your baby bump to grow, it is available in a variety of beautiful colors. When paired with a great knit sweater, such as the Cozy Sweater from Juliet Dream, a comfy yet stylish look is created. To finish off this casual look, a great pair of jeans is a good choice. Maternal America’s Megan Blue Jean is a very popular option, as it features a flattering boot cut style and a stylish stretchy waist band. With a cute casual look like this, you will be a comfy and stylish jetsetter!

    If your traveling destination of choice is tropical, you will definitely need a gorgeous swimsuit to wear. On their tropical getaway this year to the Mediterranean, Alicia sported a super sexy bikini.

    The solid print with gold hardware was a beautiful option for her, as hardware and embellishments are a hot trend this season. For a similar option try the Maternity Bikini from Prego. Coming in both black and brown, the center of the bust is accented by a plastic oval which is both stylish and flattering. The padded halter top is adjustable which is a great option as it allows the swimsuit to be adjusted as your belly bump grows. As Alicia demonstrates, bikinis are both sexy and functional.

    June, Alicia attended the BET awards where she absolutely rocked the stage during her performance! Beforehand on the red carpet she was equally as amazing in a white full length gown with a gorgeous embellished gold neckline. With statement necklaces being so popular this season, an embellished neckline is great option. It is stylish and stunning, and creates a beautiful frame for your face. The Embellished Dress from Maternal America is a striking option for an evening out or any upcoming holiday parties. The beautifully beaded neckline is the focal point for this super flattering and comfortable dress, which is sure to be a huge hit! If you are looking for a gown, the new Gold Band Maxi Dress is a gorgeous option. Also from Maternal America, the gold straps at the neck and bust line draw the eyes upwards and creates an eye-catching look. Pair it with gold heels and some great bangles, and you have a red carpet worthy look!

    Whether rushing through airports, relaxing at the beach, or rocking the red carpet, Alicia Keys truly has a stylish yet comfortable pregnancy fashion. As her due date nears, we look forward to seeing her beautiful baby and her other gorgeous pregnancy looks!

  • Maternity Baby Shower Dresses

    For one's baby shower, finding that perfect dress is incredibly important. Just as it is for any special occasion, one wants to look and feel beautiful while maintaining a high level of comfort. With warmer months approaching, there are many fantastic dress options available for one's baby shower which emulate some of the latest season's trends while maintaining a classic style. From bold colors to gorgeous patterns to flowing maxi dresses, there is the perfect dress for everyone. Once you find your favorite style, you will feel comfortable and look gorgeous at your baby shower!

    Maxi dresses are incredibly popular this season, as they have been worn by recent expectant celebrities from Kourtney Kardashian to Amy Adams. While Kourtney wore her maxi dress to a red carpet event, Amy chose a more laid back approach and wore hers on a day around town. This versatility is one of the maxi dress's greatest qualities, as it can be worn for a casual baby shower or dressed up for a more formal one. Incredibly flattering, maxi dresses emphasize the smallest part of your body with an empire waist. This accentuation directly under the bust gently cascades to ankle or floor length, creating a tall and elongated look. Aside from their flattering style, maxi dresses also are incredibly comfortable. You will not have to worry about being squeezed or uncomfortable, as the flowing dress allows room for your baby bump without creating a baggy look! The Halter Spring Green Maternity Dress from Olian Maternity is a great option for a baby shower, as its fresh spring look is vibrant and fun, especially when paired with a gorgeous bracelet or pair of earrings. Its casual elegance is emphasized by braided halter straps and its soft fabric is flattering and comfortable. Whether you choose to dress it up or down, a maxi dress is the perfect combination of elegance and carefree style-perfect for an expectant mother!

    Bright colors are always on trend for baby showers, as they are a celebratory sign of the excitement in the air. From bright pinks to deep greens, deep colors have always been a staple for expectant mothers. This season is no different, and one color that truly stands out is turquoise. Its rich hue is flattering on everyone and it resonates of spring and summer. Maternal America's new spring collection includes the beautiful turquoise Front Tie Smock Dress, perfect for baby showers. Smocking on the bust and a front tie is incredibly flattering, and the flow of the soft fabric provides an effortlessly chic look. Paired with flats or sandals, and either gold or silver jewelry, this dress is sure to make a statement at your shower. The Front Tie Dress, also from Maternal America, demonstrates the turquoise trend by creating a beautiful abstract pattern of different hues of blues. Tying underneath the bust, a flattering empire waist silhouette is created while wide shoulder straps create a balanced look. It is easily dressed up or down, and can be reworn many times after your baby shower!

    Each spring season, floral prints make their way back onto the runway, and this season is no exception. From dainty floral designs to bold abstract flowers, this trend is refreshing, beautiful, and fun. When wearing a floral print, remember to choose one that is in proportion with your body size. For petite women, choose prints that are smaller, as a large print can overwhelm a small frame. For taller women, a larger print can be fun and festive. The Floral Maxi Dress from Japanese Weekend combines bright colors with a bold floral pattern. A scoop neck and empire waist are incredibly flattering. Paired with strappy sandals, a look fit for any baby shower is instantly created. The Cocktail Dress, also from Japanese Weekend, is an absolutely gorgeous dress. The black, red, and white pattern is a classic combination which is modernized by the beautiful floral print. Knee length, this dress looks great paired with heels or flats.

    Finding the perfect dress for your baby shower is very important, and there are many great options available. As long as you are comfortable and find a style that works for you, you will look and feel great!

It looks great with jeans or black or white capris, and is perfect for anything from a day at the park to a dinner out. I love it paired with some gold bangles and capri jeans! The Diamond Tank Top is another great option, as it is work appropriate while also being great for an evening out. The deep v-neck, coming together at a diamond shaped centerpiece, is incredibly flattering. The fabric flows gently over your skin and stretches throughout your pregnancy.

  • Nursing Tops You Deserve

    If you just had your baby you are no doubt unable to fit back into your pre-pregnancy clothes and not too excited about wearing your maternity clothes too much longer. Sure it's fun to look pregnant when you are pregnant, but who wants to be asked "when are you due" at 3 weeks postpartum? What's more, if you plan to nurse, the last thing you want to do is flash your postpartum belly to the world while trying to unhook a new nursing bra for your hungry baby. You deserve better than this for all the work you have been through in birthing and nurturing a newborn plus 9 months of pregnancy, so treat yourself to some fashionable but very useful nursing tops that make you feel pretty and make nursing on-the-go a much easier task.

    There's no need to wear a frumpy 2 fabric layer old-school nursing top in the middle of summer or ever. Now a-days there are a ton of cute and hip nursing top styles on the market that don't look a thing like a nursing top. Look for a neck style that flatters your face shape. This is a time to play up your neckline as well as your bust line while it is in full bloom. So pick a style that flatters your face and figure.

    Olian Maternity has some great new styles to choose from this summer such as their Round Neck Maternity/Nursing top. This pretty lipstick shape empire waist top can be worn for either maternity or postpartum for nursing. The back sash tie makes it easily adjustable to your shape and the front pleats do wonders to disguise a postpartum belly while not tenting out. Attention is drawn to the pretty neckline, cap sleeves and fitted ruching empire waist style while the belly area is completely camouflaged. Nursing access is under the empire waist which makes nursing a breeze without showing any skin.

    Another great look is the deep V-neck top with a faux pick-a-boo cami to make discreet nursing easy the fabric lightweight cool for hot summer months. Take a look at Maternal America's Combo Maternity/Nursing top which is cut extra long for style and comfort and could even be worn with leggings in early pregnancy and postpartum. The faux cami is a sailor stripe while the rest of the tunic is navy. The adjustable sash tie makes this style an easy fit for all stages of your body's metamorphosis through pregnancy and nursing. The mock cami provides nursing access from the deep V-neck without you missing a beat to your busy day or prolonging a baby's hungry cry.

    If your maternity leave is over and you are ready to head back to the office but don't have a suitable top to wear, much less one that looks good on and fits your changing shape, then check out Japanese Weekend's nursing tops which make for excellent transition wear to the office or out on the town in the evening. Their D&A (during and after) line of maternity/tops provide a lot of sophisticated styles in cool prints and solids. In particular, their D&A ¾ sleeves Sash Tie in pretty Teal is a great all-season look for any workplace. This top is a front cross-over empire waist design with a V-neck that hits high enough not to reveal cleavage while still flattering your shape. Nursing access can be made under the empire waist sash or above from the cross over front design. You can dress this top up or down for day or night.

    Another great choice for work by Japanese Weekend is the D&A cami which comes in a variety of colors. Similarly this cami works great during and after pregnancy and nursing access is from under the empire waist stretch band which provides an overlay of fabric across the bust. The cami also has a stylish bottom band which works great for both a blooming belly (by keeping the fabric from tenting out) and for postpartum wear as the pleats work to disguise a postpartum belly. You can layer this cami under a jacket or cardigan for a sharp professional look or wear alone with pants for a more casual look in the evening. Many women find this cami so useful and flattering that they stock up on it in a variety of colors.

    So whether you are a stay-at-home mom in need of better style or fit in your top selection or a professional on the go who's just had a baby, treat yourself to a few good transition wear tops to take you through the next several months in style and comfort.

  • Show Off Your Assets

    Whether pregnant or not, you always want to dress to play up your assets. When you are pregnant, you may gain new assets, like a bigger chest or a more voluptuous bottom. Now is the time to experiment with some new styles and show off your curves.

    Show Off Your Chest

    nursing tankiniWhen you are pregnant, your chest may "pop" long before your belly does. This is the time to play up your chest with flirty necklines and a little more cleavage. Experiment with sweetheart design dresses and tops with show off your shoulders and give a smooth foundation. Invest in a well fitted bra for a smooth sculpted look. Make sure you your bra cups, straps and underwires don't dig into your skin as you don't want to constrict breasts, just support.

    The kimono top style works very well for both maternity and postpartum for nursing. Pair this wide V neck style top with a pretty necklace and just a enough cleavage and you will be a showstopper. Collarbones are always sexy to show off as well. So, if you have defined collarbones, wear a scoop neck or bodice top without a necklace and some spotlight earrings. Avoid turtlenecks and high necklines that just add bulk. Shapeless tops that many pregnant women opt for make larger bust and a pregnant belly just look big overall and do not flatter your curves. Generally more fitted is more flattering than bulky shapeless designs that just adds weight.

    Flaunt Your Butt

    crop jeansIf you have a great butt, then play it up. Fitted jeans with cute seamed pockets add that bit of accentuation to your assets. However, jeans and pants with big flap back pockets actually increase the volume of your backside without defining your curves. Skirts or pants with contoured seams give a rounded smooth appearance to the bottom and de-emphasize the sides, particularly if want to play down your hips. Ruching designs in a dress or long fitted top that extends along the entire back to the bottom gives a voluptuous sexy look without adding volume or pounds. Cropped jackets that hit higher on your waist show off your bottom, especially when they are in a contrasting color to your pants. TIP: Thongs or seamless briefs are better undergarments when wearing snug pants or dresses and thinner fabrics.

    If You Love Your Arms

    Then play them up with ruffled cap sleeve tops or dresses or a racer-back tank with a sequined front that defines shoulders and plays up arms. Try a strapless or one shoulder dress to put the focus on your arms and shoulders. A choice necklace with a fancy neckline can always help draw attention to arms. Also, a dark color bottom with a lighter color top draws eyes upwards.

    Show Off Your Legs

    Just because you have a baby bump doesn't mean you have to hide your legs. In warmer weather don't be afraid to wear some short shorts or babydoll dresses. Avoid long and mid calf length skirts or loose pants and capris that hide legs and add bulk. Play up your legs with sheer, opaque or textured tights. Remember to moisturize legs or even try a light faux tanner to even out skin tone and add a hint of color.

    Pregnancy can be a fun time to experiment with different kinds of fashion and styles. As you body is constantly evolving each month, try to highlight a different asset as you shop for new maternity clothes. Look for clothes that have a lot of stretch to take you through the season as your belly grows. Remember that fitted is often more flattering and slimming than the undefined tented look our mothers were subject to during their pregnancies. Fashion should be fun, so enjoy your new curves!

  • Maternity Clothes For All Body Types

    When you are pregnant, suddenly your shape and size are changing daily. What looks used to work well and flatter your figure may suddenly look ridiculous or unflattering on your evolving frame. This can be particularly challenging around the Holiday Season or for more dress-up occasions when you really want to look your best and not let pregnancy get in the way. Here are some general guidelines to dressing when pregnant according to you shape.

    Generally When Pregnant

    When you are pregnant don't be afraid to show some skin. A pregnant body can be very sensual and you still have great assets. So don't be shy about showing off great legs or pretty arms, shoulders or going strapless. Be sure to define your shape the way your like it. You want some definition to you pregnant belly without going uncomfortably skin tight. Grecian can be flattering as it can drape over your curves to show off the gist of your belly without showing your belly button in detail. However, too big equates to baggy which only makes you look bigger. An empire waist looks that are more contained look great on almost any pregnant body type. Belting dresses beneath the bust can create this look. Deep shades like teal and plum that are popular this season are flattering on pregnant shapes, particularly if you are further along than busy patterns or metallics

    Busty

    Maternal America Flutter SkirtIf you are the busty type you are probably three times more busty when you are expecting. Your body has taken on new dimensions and everything you try on seems to be accentuated by your pronounced cleavage. A good look to try to de-emphasize the chest is a flirty dress in one shade. By sticking to one shade of color your figure becomes elongated and you look much leaner and slimmer.

    Also going with a more tailored or structured dress that gives you a clear silhouette, you better define your shape. For example, instead of going hippie chic, go with better bust support and strong vertical pleats. A hemmed and pleated knee length flirty dress with a structured chest and wide straps will do wonders for your figure. Finally, always look to support and lift. Forget strapless or backless dresses as you will never find the level of support you need. Always look for a dress or top with wide enough shoulder straps for a supportive bra.

    Hippy

    Maternal_America_Embellished_DressA skirt or dress with inverted pleats keeps hips looking narrower. An A-line skirt is also a good choice for camouflaging hips. Even just a flared hem de-emphasizes the hips. Again choose structure in defining your silhouette so you show off a small empire waist and don't get swallowed in something loose and baggy. Remember to show off your best assets, so if you have pretty shoulders, flaunt them with a sleeveless bodice dress, strapless or one shoulder style. Draw attention to your best body parts up high - look for a jeweled neckline or brighter colors around the face or neck. Even wearing some bling jewelry will keep the gaze upwards.

    Petite

    If you are petite and you don't want to tower in platform shoes or stilettos when you are pregnant, there are some other tricks to add some length to your frame. If you have great legs, then show them off. Go for shorter hems and sheerer hose to elongate your shape. Show off some skin somewhere- arms and necklines are a great place to start. Pleats and bubble hem can work well if its not overdone - you want to add some volume without looking like a powder puff. Accessorize smartly. A few well chosen pieces that don't weigh you down is all you need to add some height.

    Tall

    If you are tall, then you have a lot of choices. Tall frames can get away with prints and patterns, horizontal stripes and all the usual hazards most women need to avoid can actually be more flattering when tall. Do make sure your clothing fits you well. Beware of cuts that tent out and make you appear bigger than you are or that miss your curves. Sleek and fitted always looks better no matter how far along you are in your pregnancy. Do be careful with super short hemlines and minis as they can make you look like a giant whose clothes got shrunk in the dryer. Otherwise, have fun with accessories as you can get away with more to wear as you have more space to fill!

    So whatever your shape, find some maternity clothes that fit and flatter your figure and make you feel as beautiful and sexy and as you truly are. Bottom line, if you feel great in the clothes you are in, then you will project that to those around you.
