Maternity clothes are anything but boring, and that’s a fact. Dressing with a baby bump may be a challenge at first. Because just like how you’re eating for two, you’re also dressing with an extra bump in mind. Add the need for ’round the clock comfort, and you might be tempted to wear sweatpants and sneakers for the whole nine months. But there will also be days when you want your maternity clothes to look dressier, or you might have events or special evenings to dress up for. Whether you’re looking for comfort, style, or a mix of both, these maternity clothes are great ideas for the fall.
Fall Maternity Clothes You’ll Actually Want To Wear
Who Says Maternity Clothes Are Boring?
When we say fashion is for women of all shapes and sizes, we mean soon-to-be moms as well! Motherhood and pregnancy is such a beautiful experience, as well as an important life milestone. So there’s no reason why you shouldn’t look, dress, and feel your best! If you’re feeling down or tired, a stylish outfit can be a great pick-me-up. So to get you inspired, I’ve scoured the web for fashion bloggers who nailed their maternity clothes. These women and their chic, stylish looks prove just how amazing you can and should look as a mom-to-be.
1. Cozy Layers
It’s about to get even colder in the coming months, so layers are an ideal way to stay warm! Layer a fit and flare dress with a jacket and leggings for a comfy yet stylish look you can take from fall to winter.
2. Long Vests
If you’re feeling conscious during your pregnancy, you should try layering your clothes! A long vest over a dress isn’t just a comfy and practical choice, it’s also stylish and will show people that you have an eye for style.
3. Bodycon Dresses
The most important thing about maternity clothes is dressing for comfort. So rule #1 is always: dress how you want to! If you feel most comfortable in a bodycon dress (some women do!), then go ahead. Maternity clothes are about adjusting to an extra bump, not compromising your personal style and preferences.
Have a special event to attend? Lace dresses are the perfect choice! Whether you choose a bodycon or a more billowy silhouette, lace can add a special element to your look.
5. Boho Dresses
Boho style has a lot of loose, flowy dresses. So if you want to subtly hide your baby bump, go for babydoll cuts or empire waist dresses. Prints and patterns can also help divert attention away from your tummy.
6. Blush Pink
Color trends are one thing you can follow when it comes to all kinds of maternity clothes. Blush pink is on-trend this fall, and it’s also a refreshing, feminine color you can incorporate into your wardrobe.
If all else fails, go for classic style. A shift dress and scarf combo sounds super cozy, and those red boots look so comfy. I’d ditch my heels for them any day!
White during the fall? Yes, it’s possible! I think white is a bright, refreshing change from all the deep, sometimes boring grays of fall. So if you want to switch things up or if you’re bored of the usual fall outfits, try white dresses!
9. Statement Coats
After a while, you’ll realize that the styling rules for maternity clothes aren’t actually different from “normal clothes.” If you have a basic jeans and t-shirt combo, throw a statement coat over it! This powder blue trench instantly turned a basic outfit into an edgy, street style-worthy look.
10. All Black
Now this is what I call a chic outfit! An all-black look can make you look slimmer and make your bump more subtle. Plus, it’s appropriate for fall, winter, and beyond.
11. Mixed Prints
These may be maternity clothes, but I’m getting a lot of fashion tips for myself in the process! Mix your looks up this fall by combining different prints. If you’re wary of mixing, start with similar-looking prints. This look has pinstripes and houndstooth—both graphic patterns.
For a stylish fall look, mix different shades of neutrals! Black, blue, and tones of grey are chic colors you can easily mix and match for maternity clothes.
