Autumn and Winter Maternity Wear

No mother-to-be wants to spend a fortune on maternity clothes – knowing that they will only be worn for a few months, and that there will be many other calls on their purse in preparing for the new arrival.  Many women also feel, after the birth of their baby and a return to a more svelte shape, that they want to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe.  But neither do they see pregnancy as a time when they have to resign themselves to looking boring or frumpy.  The 21st century mum-to-be is proud to display her bump, and doesn’t see why pregnancy should prevent her from looking stylish and elegant.  The solution, of course, is to find  maternity clothes that are up-to-the-minute but that are not going to break the bank.  There are some great online sites where you can find fashionable but cheap maternity clothesNew Look have a wide choice of both casual wear and glamorous maxi dresses for mothers to be, and some great special offers on some of their basic tops and T-shirts.   And there’s not a frumpy design in sight!   
Looking ahead to the fashion trends in maternity wear for the autumn and winter, soft and luxurious materials promise to be all the rage, with jersey and knitted dresses offering warmth and stretch to accommodate the growing bump.  Big slouchy cardigans worn over stretchy T-shirts or colourful tunics and leggings offer both comfort and style.  For outer wear, padded three-quarter length coats with adjustable panels, or a maternity duffle coat, will keep you cosy throughout the coldest winter.

Dresses are knee-length or maxi, with colours being more subdued than this summer’s floral patterns and bright shades.  Dark greys, maroons and tobacco browns complement the more classic and elegant cut of the autumn dress, with interest created by the detail of cowl necks or ruched side panels.  

The long-sleeved stretchy T-shirt will continue to be the great stand-by for the mum-to-be, worn with chunky sweaters and maternity jeans or a box-pleat skirt for every day, and for evening glamour, dressed up with sparkly leggings and a multi-strand necklace for that special night out.
