We’ve hunted high and low to bring you some of the best fall maternity fashion.  Here are some wardrobe necessities that you’ll need to get you through the season.

Skinny Jeans

No girl can live without a flattering pair of skinny jeans, pregnant or not!  The usual favourite is J Brand and they don’t disappoint this season.  If you are looking for the look of skinny jeans without the price-tag then get yourself into a pair of LA Made denim leggings.


Wrap Dress

There is nothing more versatile than a wrap dress and this seasons don’t disappoint.   Pour Deux’s wrap dress features a floral print while Fragile’s  is a multi-coloured knit print.  Both have 3/4 length sleeves and an adjustable belt that ties in the front.


Long sleeved top

Keep yourself cozy this winter in a long sleeved top.  This one from Olian is stylish enough to wear in the office or for a night out with knot detailing on the front.

Graphic Prints

Bold graphic prints are everywhere and this Fragile mini dress is right on trend.  With long sleeves and a cowl neck, finish the look with a statement belt as shown.

Party Dress

With winter comes Christmas and inevitably a Christmas party or two!  Why not treat yourself to a new dress for the occasion?  Olian’s colour blocked dress features a round neck and long sleeves and comes in two bright colours – orchid purple and bright blue.

Maternity Denim – Take the Plunge Early

Another must for the awkward stage is a fabulous pair of maternity jeans.  Once you take the plunge you’ll wonder why you resisted for so long.  Don’t underestimate the difference between trying to squish yourself into your regular jeans (even with the button undone) and the comfort of a low cut design that fits below your belly.  Gone are the days of  wide elastic panels that go over your belly; designers are now focused on making their designs as close as possible to regular styles by adding subtle elastic panels at the waist.  This allows you to wear them during the transition period until you fit into your regular wardrobe again.  The most comfortable designer jeans are made from 4-way XFIT LYCRA denim that moves in all directions giving you an extraordinary amount of movement.  My favorite styles are designed by J Brand and Serfontaine.  If you are still more comfortable with fabric over your belly James Jeans is a good option.

Say Hello to Mama J

I, like many, am in love with my J Brand jeans.  The one thing that really depresses me is that I can’t wear them when I’m pregnant.  Enter Mama J maternity jeans.  Same denim and fit as regular J Brand, just with a few added elastic inserts to make them maternity friendly.  The front rise is cut below the belly and the back is a bit higher than regular J Brand.  These are jeans that will be your wardrobe staple for all 9 months and during the transition stage when you are shrinking back to pre-pregnancy size.  Nine Months Maternity is now stocking 2 styles, straight leg and boot cut, just in time for the A/W season.
