When it comes to stylish maternity clothes, there’s never been a better time to be pregnant. Unlike the past, it’s now all about embracing and accentuating your growing baby bump in the latest trends rather than trying to hide it. Every day there are cool new pieces and brands popping up on our radar that you are guaranteed to love. The best part is, most of these options can be worn well after your little one arrives.
Your Capsule Wardrobe:
- Button-Down Shirts: Look for pregnancy-ready options since this closet staple instantly pulls together any look, whether you wear with denim or leggings.
Maternity Leggings: Trust us, you are going to live in these throughout your pregnancy and postpartum. Select options for everyday wear as well as some workout-ready picks.
Confidence-Boosting Dresses: Whether you prefer something formfitting or a frock that's breezy and voluminous, a great dress is spot-on for everything from weekends with the family to the office and beyond.
Comfortable Shoes: Think flats and sneakers. Although, no need to forgo heels altogether—opt for on-trend mule or slide kitten heels instead.
- Of-the-Moment Accessories: Here is where you can really splurge and have fun. The right pieces take any look to the next level, now and post-baby. Try chic mini bags, hoop earrings, and cat-eye sunglasses.

Get the most out of your maternity wardrobe. Here are some timeless styling tips to keep in your back pocket:
- Don't discount the non-maternity section.
If you’re looking for more non-specific maternity pieces to wear, focus on options with flowy silhouettes, naturally oversized fits, or simply try going up a size to make it work.
Try a denim trick of the trade.
Extend the life of your current denim collection with the help of a belly band or this simple elastic trick many moms swear by.
Restyle existing pieces in your closet.
Top off your looks by incorporating non-maternity-specific pieces from your
existing closet like blazers, denim jackets, scarves, cardigans, and more.
