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!
Va-va-voom! Beyonce made her first post-baby appearance on Monday evening to support her husband’s concert and looked as incredible as ever. The first time mother gave birth to baby Blue Ivy Carter just one month ago, but one would never know from her amazing post-baby body. Wearing a bright orange figure hugging dress, she truly glowed.
We love Beyonce’s dress as a great postpartum option as it has several features that are very figure flattering. The V-neck has an elongating effect, which in turn creates a slimming look. The long, vertical center seam helps to enhance this elongating and slimming feel. Ruching across the belly helps to hide any imperfections and adds visual interest. We also love how well balanced this outfit is, as the deep V-neck pairs perfectly with the below knee length hem. Beyonce could not have chosen a better way to celebrate her post-baby body!
We are looking forward to seeing more of Beyonce’s postpartum wardrobe as she begins to make more public appearances. Since she loves to show off her beautiful curves, we think she would look great in a fabulous pair of skinny jeans and a funky loose top. For any rock star mama’s out there interested in a fresh and fashionable look, try the Olian Off the Shoulder Peace Maternity Tee paired with their Long Straight Leg Elly B Jeans.
Congratulations again to Beyonce, Jay Z and their little bundle of joy!
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.
With an entire fashion empire under her belt, we always have high expectations for Jessica Simpson’s maternity wardrobe. She has never disappointed! All her maternity clothing is figure flattering and super stylish. This week she displayed her love of maxi dresses as well as showcasing some of the season’s hottest trends.
Just yesterday, Jessica looked radiant strolling arm in arm with her sexy fiancé Eric Johnson after a sweet pizza date night. She wore a heather gray maxi dress paired with a beautiful tie-dye jacket and a long necklace. The maxi dress had a gentle V-neck that is flattering and subtly sexy. Throwing the jacket over adds warmth as well as being figure flattering, and the tie-dye look is right on trend.
The day before, the happy couple shared a lunch date during which Jessica showcased another great maxi dress. The dress featured a striped tribal print, one of the biggest trends this season. She paired with a long cozy sweater and chunky heels. If you have a pair of heels that you love, they look great with a maxi dress as they create an elongating and slimming look. We love how comfortable she looks while still maintaining a high level of style.
Maxi dresses are a great option for expectant mothers. They are comfortable and highlight one’s baby bump beautifully. Easily dressed up or down, they work well for a variety of occasions. The Japanese Weekend Tribal Print Maxi Maternity Dress is a great choice. Its beautiful green, yellow, and red tribal print is refreshing and stylish, and looks great paired with a jeans jacket for a casual look or a cute black cardigan. The empire waist design is also incredibly figure flattering. 1 in the Oven’s Beach Maternity Nursing Dress is another fabulous choice. The gauze fabric is super soft and lightweight, and the dainty buttons at the bust provide easy nursing access. Pair it with a chunky sweater for a look like Jessica’s!
I love having dresses in my wardrobe because you don’t have to spend time mixing and matching separates. Just slip on one piece and you’re ready to walk out the door. Wherever you’re going, Maternal America has dresses that fit your lifestyle. The Maternal America Strapless Maternity Dress is great for a night out on the town. The wrap-around print with fuchsia, magenta, and tangerine stands out sharply against the black bottom of the dress. Complete the look with a pair of heels.
Hilary Duff, who is due in February, has been very active during her pregnancy. From running errands around town to working out to spending quality time with her hubby, we have loved all the casual outfits she has worn! Just yesterday, Hilary was spotted leaving a Pilates class in comfy sweats and a loose fitting top, but spiced up her look with a pair of funky glasses. Every mom needs a pair of go to sweats, and Majama’s Softest Yoga Pant is a great choice for a gym workout or walk with one’s friends.
Earlier in the week Hilary was seen running errands around town in a cute, all-back ensemble. Black leggings paired with a black tunic top and moccasin inspired boots completed her comfy yet stylish look. The loose top paired with fitted leggings creates a nice balance, and the boots added a funky and fun touch. When one wants to look fashionable yet remain comfortable, this outfit is a great choice. Try Bella Band’s super stretchy Essentials Over Belly Maternity Leggings paired with Olian’s Off The Shoulder Tee for a similar look.
Last month, when Hilary was out and about in Los Angeles, she paired the same great maternity leggings with a cute striped tank top and a large, cowl scarf. As the weather gets cooler, this outfit works by simply switching the tank out for a long sleeve top, such as 1 in the Oven’s ¾ Sleeve Striped Nursing Henley.
We love how Hilary wears comfortable clothing while still looking stylish!
Always sweet and down to earth, the beautiful Jennifer Garner has been radiating happiness during her third pregnancy. Due the end of February, she and hottie husband Ben Affleck are very excited for the arrival of their newest addition. With two daughters already in the family, Jennifer told Ellen DeGeneres that they do not know the sex of the baby but that she would not mind another girl, stating, “”Three girls is a great way to grow up. I’m one of three girls and my little sister is awesome.” We cannot wait to see whether it is a boy or a girl!
Throughout her pregnancy, Jennifer’s fashion choices have remained true to her relaxed and down to earth style. Just yesterday, Jennifer was spotted running errands around town in jeans, a loose white blouse and a structured blazer. The blazer completes this outfit perfectly, as it creates a flattering silhouette and pairs nicely with the looser top. This outfit works great for daily errands but can easily be dressed up for a night out by pairing it with dark wash jeans and heels. For a similar look, try Maternal America’s Front Tie Blouse and pair it with their Pintuck Jeans. Throw on your favorite color scarf, and the outfit is complete!
Even though she loves a relaxed style, Jennifer also loves to get dressed up for those special occasions. She combines elegance and comfort effortlessly. We adore the bright blue sheath dress she wore in August, and the trendy nude heels she paired it with. For a similar cut, the Embellished Dress from Maternal America works for all stages of one’s pregnancy. The empire waist flatters, and the embellished neckline is classy and stylish.
As a working mom, Jennifer often has meetings to attend. We love the business-style outfit she wore in October, which paired a pencil skirt with an embellished tee and blazer. When wearing a pencil skirt during pregnancy, purchase one that is designed especially for maternity as it will have extra stretch in the waist. The Olian Pencil Skirt is a great option, fitting perfectly under one’s belly with a wide and stretchy waistband. Pair it with a great blouse, and a quick and stylish work outfit is instantly created.
Congratulations to Jennifer and Ben! We look forward to the arrival of their newest addition!
The holidays are here and that means gift giving, delicious food, and holiday parties. During pregnancy, one wants to look and feel one’s best so it is important to find a stylish and flattering maternity holiday dress! There are many options available this year, ensuring there is something for everyone.
Everyone loves an LBD, as it works for a multitude of occasions and can easily be dressed up or down. One great choice that puts a twist on the classic LBD is Maternal America’s Gold Sash Front Tie Dress. It features a cross-over design and deep V-neck that is flattering and slimming. The gold tie above the waist accentuates the smallest part of one’s body while showing off one’s beautiful baby bump. Pair it with gold heels and a black cardigan for any office or family holiday party!
One of the biggest trends this season is animal print, and it can easily be incorporated into one’s holiday dress wardrobe. The ¾ Sleeve Animal Print Maternity Dress from Olian Maternity is one great option. Sexy and festive, the black accented neckline and trim pair perfectly with the leopard print base. Wear it with black maternity tights, heels, and gold earrings for the perfect holiday outfit!
Lace is another beautiful holiday accent, and the Front Over Lace Dress from Japanese Weekend is sure to make one look and feel amazing! The lace has a vintage feel and the open V-neck is incredibly flattering. The empire waist slims and the fabric flows over one’s baby bump comfortably. Elegant and classy, it is a great holiday party choice.
