A Foolproof Holiday Style Guide for Expecting Moms

Thank you to our friends at A Pea in the Pod for partnering with us on this story.

Mamas-to-be, listen up: your maternity wardrobe should be as fabulous, exciting, and amazing as you are, right?! Agreed. That's why our next edition of 7 days of holiday dressing is tackling how to master the art of maternity style during the most festive time of the year.

This holiday season, Tara turned to A Pea in the Pod for statement dresses, stylish separates, and cozy staples. A Pea in the Pod's elegant and cool pieces allow women to turn their pregnancies into 40 weeks of chic, so you can maintain your sense of style and stay on-trend during the special time. See how Tara is curating her maternity-friendly holiday looks here.

An Ode to the Printed Maxi Dress

A maxi dress is one of the most comfortable and easy-to-wear pregnancy staples, and a beautifully printed version will be your new best friend as you plan your pregnancy OOTDs. All-over patterns accentuate your bump, while the maxi dress silhouette means you'll have a roomy and comfortable fit.

Tara styled this BB Dakota coat with a floral tiered maxi dress by A Pea in the Pod perfect for a brunch or to run errands. Also, don't be afraid to incorporate bolder prints into your wardrobe, like this gorgeous snake print dress from Rachel Pally. See what we mean? Your holiday wardrobe will never be the same. 

Get Cozy in a Sweater and Leggings

We’re going to let you in on a major secret: the perfect maternity leggings do indeed exist. Meet the maternity compression leggings from A Pea in the Pod–they're a tried-and-true favorite here at SN, with a super stretchy feel and incredible bump support. These leggings are the key to your holiday style hack: pair them with a cozy sweater for an instantly put-together outfit. 

Tara styled the leggings with a classic cable knit sweater for a look that's both comfortable and on-trend. For a dressed-down occasion, pair these leggings with a hoodie. This is a foolproof outfit recipe that will make your holiday styling a breeze. 

Elegant and Effortless

This is a classic and oh-so-simple solution to your "I don't know what to wear for (insert any holiday event taking place via Zoom)" question. Pair a long-sleeved dress and high boots with vibrant accessories to up the festive factor to your look.

For a pop of color, go for a dress with subtle accents, like this Pietro Brunelli design adorned with chic bows on the cuffs. Need more inspo? We curated a few more picks to try this holiday season below.
