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.
With just one more week to go before her due date, we know Tori Spelling and hubby Dean McDermott must be so excited for the arrival of the newest addition to their family! Throughout her pregnancy, Tori has looked chic and stylish while still being comfortable and relaxed. One of her pregnancy staples has been the maxi dress, in which Tori has looked truly stunning! Maxi dresses are a great idea for pregnancy, as they combine style and comfort in one. Just this week, Tori was spotted shopping for Halloween decoration in a beautiful, floral printed maxi dress. Its modified sweetheart neckline and empire waist flattered her baby bump. She wore hers with a sleeveless lace blouse, but with fall in full swing one can pair it with a great cozy cardigan. For a similar look in a beautiful autumn orange, try Maternal America’s Strapless Dress/Skirt. This maxi, which can also be worn as a skirt, looks great with a brown or white cardigan and brown strappy sandals.
We also love Tori’s use of color throughout her pregnancy. She chooses vibrant hues that exude happiness. At the end of August Tori was spotted with her adorable children wearing a loose fitting, ¾ length sleeve, deep blue dress. The vibrant blue fabric compliments her skin tone beautifully while making a statement. With autumn here, a ¾ length sleeve transitions perfectly from warmer to cooler weather. If you like Tori’s look, Maternal America’s Front Tie Keyhole Dress is similar with a rich, blue hue and those ever versatile ¾ length sleeves. For fall, pair it with tights and flat boots or ballet flats.
We are so excited for the impending arrival of Tori and Dean’s third child! Congratulations to the happy couple and we look forward to seeing the newest addition to their family.
Congratulations to the incredibly talented Beyoncé Knowles and her equally talented husband Jay-Z on the announcement of their pregnancy! At the Video Music Awards last night, Beyoncé, 29, showed off her burgeoning baby bump while walking the red carpet in a stunning red, Lanvin gown. She looked gorgeous in the flowing dress, pairing it with statement earrings and dramatic bracelets. We love the beautiful draping of the dress…so striking! Smiling and holding her belly as she walked the carpet, her happiness was contagious. Later in the evening, Beyoncé took the stage to perform and unbuttoned her jacket at the end, revealing her baby bump to an excited and cheering audience and her beaming husband!
This is the first child for Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and we could not be happier for the lovely couple. Speaking to People, Beyoncé’s former band mate Kelly Rowland said, “I think she'll be an incredible mother, because she's always been motherly. I think that she takes after so many traits from her mother. And I just think it's going to be so natural for her. It’s natural for her now!”
We are so excited to see what Beyonce’s maternity wardrobe will be! With her own clothing line and impeccable fashion sense, we know she will be rocking gorgeous outfits on the red carpet as well as just out and about. For a date night with her husband, we think Maternal America’s Embellished Bell Sleeve Tunic paired with studded heels would look fabulous. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Congratulations to the talented and beautiful January Jones on her current pregnancy with her first child! Due the end of September, we could not be happier for her. In May, the Mad Men actress expressed her happiness to People over how her pregnancy was going. “I feel great. I haven't had any weird physical side effects…I feel pretty lucky so far.” She also stated that she had no strange food cravings yet, much to her disappointment! "It's a bummer. I wish I had something weird to tell”. What January has had, though, is fabulous maternity style. She manages to look effortlessly on trend while being incredibly comfortable. By pairing funky fedoras and military inspired boots with soft, feminine dresses, a styled and polished look is instantly created. Last month she was spotted around town in a floral maxi dress paired with lace up work boots and an edgy leather belt. Her eye for accessories, and combining soft and hard elements, keeps her look fresh and hip without sacrificing comfort. This look is easy to do at home. Take your favorite maternity sundress and pair it with chunky leather boots or even a studded Grecian sandal. Feathery earrings can add a bohemian effect, and a gauzy cardigan adds feminine detail while adding a bit of warmth for the evenings.
January’s penchant for gorgeous maternity dresses has not gone unnoticed, as she rocks them all. Maternity dresses are easy, comfortable, and look great on everyone. Just last month she wore a ruffled, printed dress paired with a cardigan and strappy sandals. This look is perfect for around town or going out to lunch or the movies. For a similar look, Maternal America’s Asymmetrical Ruffle Dress, paired with gold flats and bangles, is a stylish and stunning choice. At the X-Man premiere in May, January was the belle of the ball in a navy and black empire-waist dress that accented her baby bump beautifully. The Embellished Dress from Maternal America exudes the same deep navy color as well has highlighting directly underneath the bust. Dress it up with black strappy heels for a look similar to January’s! With her stylish maternity choices, January looks great no matter where she is headed.
The 40 year old comedian, Tina Fey, and husband, Jeff Richmond, are expecting their second child any day now. It seems we just can’t get enough of Tina Fey with her Palin impersonations to her award winning show, 30 Rock. However, we will now have to wait till January for the new season to begin. Fey will be playing "mom" to her newborn baby and 5 yr old daughter, Alice.
And the sex of the baby? Fey predicted "It's going to be a werewolf" to the host, Craig Fergusen, on the Late Show.
Fey also has a new book out, Bossypants, which she began promoting back in April on an Oprah Winfrey appearance. This is when we first learned of the pregnancy and she was already 5 months pregnant. In her memoir, Tina openly agonized about her decision to have a second child in the midst of a demanding career and as she neared the big 4-0. It seemed her overwhelming desire to be a mom once again won out over all the other demands in her life. However Fey has fended off rumors that 30 Rock is coming to an end. So we can hope and expect to see Fey as a busy pregnant and working mom in the months ahead.
Fey certainly knows how to ROCK maternity wear. She has been spotted wearing anything from a tailored, Ann Taylor nautical outfit to a black dress showing off her burgeoning baby bump. One thing for certain, Fey has had fun keeping herself in fashion.
Any day now, the little werewolf should be making an entrance. I know we all can't wait!!
Japanese Weekend is really at the forefront of integrating functionality and fashion in maternity wear.

Another great dress for spring and summer is the Maternal America Asymeretric Ruffle Dress. The fabric has a cheerful floral pattern and light cotton-like feel.
