The change of the seasons means it will soon be time to don those sweaters and cardigans, pick out some stylish boots and sport jackets and full-sleeve tops. When you’re pregnant over the fall season, it can be hard to figure out how to put together a stylish but functional ensemble that will keep you comfortable as the temperature changes. The secret to looking great this season? It’s all about the layers.
Layering your look is a simple way to wear your favorite pieces all year long and create a fresh new look each day. When you’re pregnant, you also need to think about staying cool and comfortable when those hormones start to get the best of you. Fall is a great time to layer clothes such as tank tops, short-sleeve tees and button-down blouses with some fresh new pieces such as vests, cable-knit sweaters and long cardigans.
Just make sure you’re picking up each piece from the maternity department so you are accommodating for your growing figure. Some of the best layered combinations for the mom-to-be this fall include:
Long chunky-knit cardigans with maternity leggings and a short-sleeve top
Wide-leg corduroy pants with a wraparound top and a long sweater
Dark brown khaki pants with a smock tank top and a long, full-sleeve cardigan
Bootcut jeans with a long v-neck tunic top and contrasting tank underneath
Knit trapeze top with twill pants and topped with a chunky sweater
When you’re just lounging at home and need to wear something comfortable during those especially painful or bloated days, stick with the ¾ sleeve baby doll tops, short sleeve faux wrap tops and sleeveless baby doll tops paired with some yoga-style capris or wide-leg pants, and wear a long sweater or cardigan over it if you get cold.
Just remember: even though it’s the fall season, your body may not be responding to the actual temperatures outdoors on any given day. If you’re feeling especially hot in the middle of October, or feeling chills in early September, adjust your ensemble for the day by layering light and heavy clothing so you can be comfortable all day long.
