It’s getting cold out, and we all want to cozy up in some comfortable and practical clothes. Especially you, mama-to-be. Lucky for you, the athleisure trend is still going strong. So let’s embrace it, shall we? Key trends are soft breathable fabrics (yes, even for winter!), fall color pallet (think pumpkin patch and yellowing leaves), graphics (let your bump turn heads on the sidewalk!) and layering (so much layering).
Fabric. We like to say in the fashion world that “fabric is king.” Well, this is true, especially if you are pregnant. That’s right, you’ll want quality and comfort and, let’s be honest, clothes that are going to hold up throughout your pregnancy, as your belly expands.
Here are my picks.
Fall/Winter Color. Bring on the beautiful fall color! A beautiful rust that warms your face for the perfect bump picture at the pumpkin patch, and a stunning scarlet red that brings joy to any power walk through your neighborhood. It’s poetic, it’s dreamy — and it adds a je ne sais quoi to any sporty outfit.
Graphics. I can’t get enough of graphics these days. The kitchy little sayings, the nod to travel, the reference to a bun in the oven… even the bold color blocks and tie-dies that take us back to the 80s — AHHHHHH love love love. It’s sure to give a fun edge to your otherwise practical attire.
Layering. Athleisure is all about layering, and so is winter. So embrace it, mama, and pile on the clothes mamas..
Maternity Athleisure Equation
I’ll break it down for you, here’s a simple equation you can follow when dressing up your bump in chic athletic wear:
tee shirt +
comfy sneaks +
a pulled together (and comfy) mama
