Now that the cat’s out of the bag (on Instagram at least!) I can start sharing some of my maternity outfits in the hopes of inspiring a little pregnancy style for you! As I have been hiding the bump for 24 weeks (!) I have actually learned quite a lot about how to hide the bump, how to dress it in style, and most importantly, how to be comfortable.
The tricky thing for the cooler temperatures is staying comfortable while still bundling up. Maternity style in the warmer months can be much easier- breezier and looser silhouettes are friendly for growing bumps and agitated mommas. But managing to stay warm in winter while balancing comfort and style (leggings and cardigans are cute but I know you don’t need my help for that) can be tricky. That’s why I’ve highlighted my 3 maternity outfits that I will be wearing for winter, to hopefully help you look rockin’ while you rock around the Christmas Tree.
Maternity Outfits #1: The Knit Dress and Long Car Coat
This one is pretty self explanatory but a long knit dress is super comfortable and stylish to show a growing belly in. A long coat is slimming and lengthening on top, so even though you may feel like a beached whale, you look ready to take on the Holidays with ease. Bonus points if the dress and coat are in matching or tonal hues- talk about chic!

Maternity Outfits #2: Skinny Jeans, Boots and Cape
I don’t have my own image of this yet, but consider a poncho/cape #1 on my sewing list this winter. I would love to rock Blake Lively’s look below, which I think has to be one of the easiest and chicest maternity outfits to nail. I do think the kicker of the look is making sure the jeans and the boots are the same color, to again, lengthen the look. Have fun with color and pattern in the cape – there is no need to be a wallflower when you are pregnant!

Maternity Outfits #3: Knit Skirt, Band Tee and Easy Jacket
In order to style the bump, but still keep your own personal style, don’t forget about your favorite band tee (or any other logo tee that speaks to you). Simply buy in a size up or borrow one from the man in your life, and match it back to a simple non-maternity knit pencil skirt and boots. I can wear this look around for hours and feel comfortable to complete all my errands but still cool enough to head to a meal or outing with friends. Pick ANY jacket to top this off, depending on the weather. It will look equally cool with a jean jacket as with a faux fur coat. The only thing I would avoid at this stage are puffers and thick bomber jackets where there is so much bulk added up top.
