Fashion mogul Jessica Simpson has consistently chosen stylish and flattering maternity looks throughout her pregnancy, so we are always happy to get fashion tips from her. She recently told US Weekly about some of the hottest looks for warmer weather, stating, “Airy peasant tops paired with denim shorts are a spring staple. Floral and lace details add a romantic, flirty feeling to a daytime outfit.” We love this advice, as a great floral print and hints of lace create a pretty and feminine look. Try the Maternal America Crochet Top, which combines a gorgeous print with a unique crocheted detail. The flowy top falls over one’s bump beautifully and looks great paired with the Megan Denim Maternity Shorts, also from Maternal America. For a dress with a flirty and floral look, try Japanese Weekend’s Double Neck Maternity/Nursing Dress. The pretty pink print is very eye catching, and we love the versatility that the double cross over style provides for both maternity and nursing.
For now, Jessica has been sticking with more wintery hues, including a gorgeous LBD that she wore out on a date night earlier this week. The dress featured a lace print so that she was able to incorporate some of that feminine detail which she loves. For an option that features a pretty lace touch, try Japanese Weekend’s Front Over Lace Dress. The embellishment at the empire waist is very figure flattering and the lace overlay is right on trend. Due the beginning of May, we cannot wait to see more maternity fashion from Jessica!
The gorgeous Molly Sims and her handsome husband Scott Stuber announced just last month that they are expecting their first child together, and we could not be happier for the newlywed couple. Always stylish, Molly’s maternity style has been no different. We love her effortless and comfortable choices!
Several weeks ago, Molly was running errands around town in one of this season’s biggest trends: animal print. She paired a stylish leopard print top with a long skirt. Very comfortable yet fashionable, it is a great go-to look. For a similar look, try the Maternal America Maxi Skirt. Its supportive built in belly band is incredibly comfortable, and it works well during both spring and fall.
Earlier this week, Molly appeared at a red carpet premier in a beautiful, color blocked dress. The coral color of the dress was contrasted by the pink band underneath the bust and at the trim. The accent underneath the bust is very flattering and allows her baby bump to be showcased beautifully. For similar color and the same flattering shape, try the Olian Coral Maternity Dress. The fitted tank top design is accented by a grey band beneath the bust and a pretty coral skirt. Comfy and stylish, this can easily be dressed up or down.
Aside from her great style, we appreciate her openness with sharing her pregnancy on her blog. Last month she wrote, “I’ve already been though the morning sickness (every morning from 4 to 6 AM for seven weeks—it was the worst), the strange cravings (I’m looking at you, Kraft Easy Mac) and daily episodes of what I call ‘pregnancy brain.’ But believe it or not, I’m cherishing every moment.” Congratulations to this gorgeous family!
Every expecting and new mom wants to be comfortable during and after pregnancy, and having that perfect loungewear outfit is a must. Back in October, the very talented singer Lily Allen tweeted a picture of herself looking cute and cozy in BelaBumBum’s loungewear a month before she gave birth. Now, months later, she can still wear their renowned loungewear as it is designed for both pregnancy and nursing. Many celebrities, including Halle Berry, Milla Jojovich, Alicia Keys, and Jessica Simpson are huge fans of BelaBumBum’s stylish and comfortable designs, and we are sure you will love them just as much.
Made of superb material, BelaBumBum’s loungewear is always incredibly soft and feel great against one’s skin. For the perfect loungewear set, try the Ariel Lacey Nursing/Maternity Pajamas. The super soft Pima cotton top and bottoms are trimmed with delicate lace so one is sure to look as good as one feels. The lace accent also highlights an empire waist, creating a very flattering shape. Pull down capability provides easy nursing access, making this the perfect choice for both maternity and nursing wear. Wear it all night to sleep in as well as during the day when one just wants something comfy and cute to lounge in. Another BelaBumBum favorite is the Lotus Nursing Chemise. With soft pearl lace accents around the hem and bust, a beautiful contrast is created against the black nightie. It has plenty of stretch and room to be worn during pregnancy and has easy to use nursing clips for postpartum wear. Stylish, sexy, and oh so comfy, it is the perfect option for new and expectant mothers!
Whether one is looking for a gift for an expecting mother or simply wanting to treat oneself to a well deserved gift, BelaBumBum’s loungewear is an excellent choice for pregnant and new moms everywhere.
Well it looks like Jay-Z has raised the bar for new fathers everywhere. Not only does he block out entire wings of the hospital for his wife to give birth in privacy and style (imagine the details of that birth plan!), but he also showers the mother of his newborn with a special “push present” ring.
Beyonce was spotted flashing a chunky blue ring with matching blue fingernail polish, no doubt in honour of her newborn daughter, Blue Ivy. I’m sure if it was a C-Section birth, there would still be a ring, maybe even a bigger one!
Beyonce proudly wore the ring on her index finger while stepping out for the first night of Jay-Z’s two legged NYC Carnegie Hall gig. Her sexy black lace gown, by bridal favorite Monique Lhuillier, was skintight and adorned with sequins around the sweetheart neckline. Beyonce also rocked some towering strappy stilettos with grace and ease. Who says you have to be a frumpy mom four weeks after having a baby?!
As Beyonce shows with her style, tighter is better than looser for a sexy curvy look. Pregnancy and postpartum is one time you have a few more curves to show off. Black maternity dresses or nursing dresses are a great way to accent those curves and look sexy, even if you did just have a baby. For a similar look, check out the Maternal America Satin Border Maternity Dress. This little black maternity dress is a great go-to dress for any occasion.
You also may want to pass along the idea of “push presents” to your husband or partner. Not a bad way to be appreciated and to celebrate the birth of your new one!
Since announcing her pregnancy recently, the gorgeous Alessandra Ambrosio has not slowed down. She has walked in two lingerie fashion shows, proudly showing off her baby bump for the world to see. Due in late June, this super model mama looks stunning. Although the last thing I want to do while pregnant is bear nearly all on national television, I do love the confidence Alessandra exudes. Her clothing choices are stylish yet comfy, and any mom to be can feel and look amazing in the right outfit.
This past week Alessandra ran errands around town in a beautiful and breezy outfit. She paired a gorgeous floral maxi skirt with a plain white fitted shirt and a lightweight scarf. The flowing skirt fit nicely underneath her growing baby bump, while the fitted tee added great shape. We love how laid back yet stylish this look is! If one loves this look, the Bella Band Essentials Rouched Long Sleeve Top shows off one’s baby bump beautifully and looks great paired with any skirt.
Transitioning easily from day to evening, Alessandra chose to wear a vibrant long-sleeve fitted mini dress while frequenting San Paolo Fashion Week. We love how the long sleeves balance the shortness of the dress. The fitted cut hugs ones curves beautifully and is perfect to show off one’s baby bump. If one likes this style, try the Maternal America La Saree Dress. This hot white dress features long sleeves and a very flattering cross over design.
Congratulations to Alessandra on her second pregnancy! We can’t wait to see more of this super model’s pregnancy fashion choices.
Congratulations to reality starlet Kristin Cavallari and NFL quarterback Jay Cutler on their pregnancy! The engaged couple recently released a statement saying, “We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together.” Sources close to the couple have also echoed these sentiments, telling US Weekly that Kristin “is really happy. She is in the early stages, but she can’t wait to be a mom”. Although not showing yet since she is not due until the end of July, Kristin has been spotted out and about wearing some super stylish outfits that work well for both the beginning pregnancy stages and beyond.
Just a few days ago Kristin was seen out to lunch is a cute black shirtdress, blazer, and black tights. A shirtdress is super comfy and stylish. As one’s baby bump grows, choose one where the tie is higher up to create a slimming and flattering empire waist. Adding tights is perfect for the cooler weather, and the structured blazer creates a finished as well as figure flattering look both during pregnancy and after. For a similar look, pair the Maternal America Beaded Diamond Dress with their Maternity Leggings and a matching black blazer. Throw on a bright scarf or statement earrings for a pop of color!
Kristen rocked another stylish look while out shopping in late January. She paired dark wash skinny jeans with a beautiful loose fitting blouse. We love the mix of loose and tight, as it is very flattering. The blouse works well for both pregnancy and postpartum, as it has room for one’s bump to grow yet is also slimming once one has given birth. Try pairing the Olian Long Straight Leg Elly B Jeans with their Button V-Neck Maternity Tunic Top for a similar look. Throw on flats for daily wear or heels to dress it up at night.
Congratulations to Kristen and Jay! We are looking forward to the arrival of their baby as well as seeing what stylish maternity clothing Kristen will wear!
With her due date right around the corner (February!), Hilary Duff has been all about comfy outfits and a laidback look. We love that she has been relaxing and taking time to get ready for her first pregnancy. Just yesterday she was seen getting a pedicure wearing comfy black maternity yoga pants, a cute striped t-shirt, and a lightweight cardigan. To add a bit of her own personal style, Hilary added a great fedora and bright yellow earrings. For a similar look, pair 1 in the Oven’s Super Soft Ruched Foldover Maternity Pants with their 2 in 1 Maternity/Nursing Tank. Add your own personal style with your favorite earrings, a cute fedora like Hilary’s, or a colorful scarf.
The day before, Hilary looked gorgeous in a laid-back, all black ensemble while out with her super cute hubby Mike Comrie. A long black top showcased her baby bump beautifully and the leggings she wore were comfortable and chic. By pairing it with funky sandals, glasses, and a great purse, Hilary added stylish detail perfectly. If you love her look, try Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Maternity Leggings paired with Maternal America’s Ribbed Crew Neck Tee. We love how Hilary paired her outfit with strappy sandals, but for colder weather a great pair of flat boots would look just as stylish.
Throughout her pregnancy, Hilary has stayed very active. A few days ago she left a Pilates class wearing her favorite comfy leggings and a cute grey and white faded shirt. We love the ¾ length sleeves as well as the longer tee to provide plenty of coverage in the last months of pregnancy. We are looking forward to Hilary and Mike welcoming their baby!
We have to give Keri Russell, 35, the award for popping out a baby and just weeks later looking as slim and svelte as ever. Pictured in NYC post baby on on Jan. 6th, Russell is wearing jeans and a short sleeved denim blouse. She gave birth to daughter Willa Lou on Dec 27th.
This is Russell’s second child with husband Shane Deary, already parents to son, River, 4.
Keri and Russell will be celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary on Valentine’s Day next month.
Jennifer Garner was recently spotted strolling New Years Day in Pacific Palisades California with her girls Violet and Seraphina, husband Ben Affleck and her mother. The 39 year old actress is due in a few weeks and appears to have her mom, Patricia, at hand for help with the big day just around the corner.
Dressed comfortably in jeans, ankle boots and V neck sweater, the actress shows us that even the fittest of Hollywood celebrities look “ready to pop” during the last few months of a healthy pregnancy. As Jennifer shows with her laid back style, it’s important to look and feel comfortable with the maternity clothes you wear, especially during the latter part of your pregnancy.
In a recent Dankins Event at the Santa Monica Ice Rink, mom-to-be Hilary Duff glowed in a fitted cowl neck mustard sweater. Duff presented a check for $10,000 for Danskin’s “Move for Change” charity event.
Duff pairs this gorgeous fitted sweater with black leggings and grey shade boots and a pretty pendant necklace. We love Hilary’s choice of style as the mustard hued sweater brings out her skin’s radiance and complements her hair color. The cowl neck highlights her face and brings the focus upwards. The fitted leggings and sweater show off her pregnancy curves and give her an overall sleek and stylish look. Also, the longer length sweater elongates and streamlines her figure.
Go for a similar look with Olian’s Turtleneck Top, and Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Leggings.
Leggings are definitely the rage now with a longer fitted sweater or tunic. Maternity leggings are an excellent choice for versatile wear with boots or flats. They also make for great transitional wear after the baby!
