Pregnant in Heels…And Flared Jeans…And Maxi Dresses

April 8, 2011-

By Lauren

Just when you thought it could never happen, prenancy is suddenly…stylish? Thank you Rosie Pope! With the introduction of Bravo’s “Pregnant In Heels”, Pope’s “Maternity Concierge” business is making maternity look chic, and her clothing line is doing the same. With simple, detailed silk pieces that are bump-accenting but not too fitted, Rosie is giving pregnancy a new look.  And she’s not the only one! Designer pregnancy jeans, statement making accessory trends and our favorite brands branching out to start their own maternity lines make current spring trends available to people who are expecting. Check out my favorite pics for Spring/Summer Maternity wear:


*The great thing about a Spring/Summer pregnancy is that you can LIVE in dresses and be both stylish and comfortable. For maxi’s and empire waisted dresses you can often buy non-maternity and it will still fit*

ASOS Maternity Embellished Neck Swing Dress $98.62

Hampton Tunic $275

Asos Exclusive Maternity One Shoulder Dress $71.72

Halter Maxi Dress $69.50

Halter Maxi Dress $98



*If you are going to drop a lot of dough on a maternity jean (Citizens, Paige, J Brand, True Religion, Seven), make it a timeless style if you plan to wear them again. Spend less on a “trendy” pair. The below J Brands have elastic inserts instead of a big, over the belly band, making them more comfortable*

Asos Maternity Faded Kickflare Jeans $62.76

Mamalicious Tide Boyfriend Jean $80.69

J Brand Maternity Bootcut Jeans $198



Whether you like a clean look or want to keep up with 2011’s tie-dye, stripe and print trends, there is a maternity top for you.

Ella Moss Short Sleeve, Scoop Neck, Detailed Tee $99.99

*Ella Moss also has this print in their regular line

Forever21 Maternity Short Sleeve Kimono Tunic $13.99

Rosie Pope Maternity Romantic Top $125

ASOS Maternity Stripe Boatneck Top $35.86


“Diaper Bags”:

Don’t spend a fortune on a “diaper” bag. A large purse with a lot of pockets will do and can be less expensive and look more current.


2 Pocket Hobo Bag $69.95

Versa Expandable Bag $80.00



Try Spanx to smooth out your figure under any knit shirts or maxi dresses with material that may cling to bumps.

Mama Spanx Maternity Mid Thigh Shaper $44.83
