Maternity Jeans

The thought of wearing maternity jeans in pregnancy makes some people cringe.

I totally get it.

But I promise: if you have the right pair of maternity jeans, you’ll want to wear them every day! They’ll be as versatile in maternity as they are in normal life (normal, haha).

Maternity Jeans

Here’s my “maternity jeans cheat sheet” to help you find the perfect pair:

But first…

Ingrid & Isabel BellaBand ~ $28

In the early stages of pregnancy, many women can still fit into their non-maternity denim. You can extend the life of your regular jeans by wearing this BellaBand over your unfastened waistband. The Bella Band is also amazing for the postpartum months, either to keep your maternity jeans up as you start losing the baby weight or for fitting back into your regular jeans.

Denim for Fall/Winter 2019

Fall is many women’s favorite season. Dressing becomes easy and cozy; and 9 times out of 10, you’re pairing something with denim. And denim, well — it never goes out of style

That said, it can be tough to find the perfect pair of jeans; and when you’re pregnant, it becomes nearly impossible. That’s why we’re here: to help you find your denim must-haves, so you can ease your way into fall and winter, bump in tow!

Key Trends

  • Skinny, skinny, skinny: Skinny is back in the game this fall and it’s so easy to style for soon-to-be mommas. Toss on a sweater and a sneaker for a casual day; or pair with a top, blazer, and boot for a day at the office. Skinny denim looks refined and perfect for all body types. So get yourself a pair and flaunt that beautiful bump of yours! 
  • Shades of grey, and some autumnal neutrals: This season’s color is GREY. And really, any shade of grey will do, from the darkest most saturated hue to a subtle grey wash. You can also opt for a warm neutral, like copper or brown, to match your all-time fave season (c’mon, admit it, fall’s the best). 
  • Details matter: Denim is full of details this season. Weather it be a denim color block, a cuff, a side slit, or a nod to utility, designers are having fun. Express your style even with a bump, and find the perfect trend for you this season.
