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.

5 Ways to Stay Stylish When Pregnant

So you’re pregnant…that’s no reason to go the way of smocked tops and tent dresses.  Follow these simple tips to keep stylish for all 9 months:

1.  Accessorize – Your closet is already filled with amazing accessories that will still work when you are pregnant.  Wear a maternity dress and accessorize with a belt and scarf.  Loose fitting dresses often look better with a leather belt around your hips or below your bust to give more of a shape.

2.  Choose fitted styles – Don’t try to hide your size by wearing too loose clothes because you’ll get the opposite effect.  Wearing a fitted top with loose trousers or skinny jeans with a roomy top will make you look slimmer and more polished.

3.  Keep your skinny’s – If you love skinny jeans keep wearing them!  All your favourite denim designers also make maternity styles with the same flattering fit.

4.  Add a splash of colour – Pregnant women have a tendency to wear a lot of black.  An injection of colour will brighten your outfit and make it more on-trend for Summer.

Maternity Trends for Spring & Summer 2012

The scorching Summer months are here and we’ve got you covered with our Spring/Summer Collection for 2012.  Here are our top picks from the latest fashion trends to keep you looking and feeling cool this Summer.

Nautical

The Nautical trend made a key appearance this season because it’s crisp and classy.  Choose from horizontal stripes in black, navy or red but keep in mind only 1 item from your outfit should be striped as this trend can be easily overdone.  Olian’s Off-Shoulder Striped Top is a loose style that hugs your bump making it flattering without being too tight.  And the Striped Dress features a solid black tank top and horizontal black and white striped flowing skirt with an adjustable belt.

Prints

Summer is an excuse to play with prints and this season is no exception. Be daring and stand out in Fragile’s Knotty Dress. This one-of-a-kind navy, black and cream dress accentuates all your curves and ties at the front.  Another winner from Fragile is the Double V Dress in vintage inspired blue, red and white diamond pattern print with 3/4 length sleeves and an adjustable tie belt.

Summer Brights

Summer wouldn’t be summer without bright, fun colours and this year is no exception.  LA Made’s Maxi Dress is made of thin, breathable cotton making it perfect for HK’s hot and humid climate.  Everly Grey’s Uma Wrap Dress in bright royal blue with flutter sleeves is perfect for the office or a night out.

Colour Blocking

Colour blocking seems to be the trend of the moment and we are loving the Everly Grey Ellis Tri-Colour Maxi.  The combination of navy, white and bright grass green is fresh and summery.  If you are more keen on pink, Olian’s Two-tone Dress (coming soon) with a grey tank top, black waist and bright pink loose fitting skirt.

Get Shorty

Nothing says summer like a pair of shorts. Mums-to-be shouldn’t shy away from shorts as a chic summer option. Choose from Short or Bermuda style shorts and pair with a top that hits at the hip for the most flattering look.  Jules & Jim’s Cargo Shorts are cuffed and have patch pockets on the front and an adjustable belt making them suitable for all stages of pregnancy.  Everly Grey’s Miren Shorts are a bit longer and feature fold-over back pockets with buttons.

1.  Draping – Add a twist to your wardrobe with a trend that made it to all the runways making shapes super feminine and  flattering.  Stephanie Schell’s Draped Jumpsuit is the perfect solution for those who want to show off their shape without wearing something too fitted.

2.  Tribal Prints – Tribal prints turned heads on the runways of Gucci and Diane Von Furstenburg.  Easy and fun to wear, look for loose fabrics that skim your bump for a flattering look.  This little number from F.E.M. by Tbags will keep you cool during Hong Kong’s hot summer months, and the slightly longer sleeve offers the perfect camouflage for those dreaded upper arms.
