2011 Maternity Wear Trends

Posted on 6/07/2011 in Style

The maternity wear industry in Australia and abroad just keeps going from strength to strength, and as a result we are seeing some truly beautiful trends coming up for the second half of 2011! Of course, there are trends for different stages of pregnancy as well as trends for different occasions, so we're going to try and share with you 5 different up-and-coming fashion trends that'll have you in the know this season!

Trends for Early Pregnancy

You know how it is--you're a few months pregnant but you're not quire ready to tell your boss and coworkers yet,  but those skinny jeans just ain't doing up these days! In order to stay on-trend but remain comfortable, 2011 early-pregnancy trends include leggings, jeggings, tunic tops and layers. The 2011 winter collections have seen a dizzying array of beautiful tights and leggings--from animal print to lace-trim to the thicker 'jeggings' variety (have we mentioned how much we love these?) it's all about the stretchy pants, and we couldn't be happier about it! Couple body-con bottoms with long flowing tops that hide bumps and bums. For work attire, if your office is particularly formal, tights with structured yet a-line tunic dresses that fall just above the knee are bang on trend.

Trends for Late Pregnancy

Once the world knows about your pregnancy you're free to explore fashion that not only sows your growing bump, but celebrates it. A lot of women feel incredibly feminine (understandably so!) during the later months of pregnancy and therefore the empire line (a pregnant woman's best friend) is an ever-versatile style that can be translated and adapted each season. This season, empire lines are taking the form of 60's-style jackets which flow out in feminine A-line shapes, knits with ties and wrap dresses in deep autumnal colours like burgundy and brown. 

2011 Trends: Swimwear

Maternity swimwear can be a bit of a hassle, especially as your ever-changing body requires different support at different stages of pregnancy and beyond. Last-season's emerging one-piece trend has carried through to 2011 but the styles of one-piece that are available in maternity lines are much more accessible than in previous years.Go for a halter-top style with think, adjustable ties that can be altered both at the neck and the back. This allows you to go for extra room around the tummy but keep those boobs supported, both during your pregnancy and later, during breastfeeding. For those who are looking for a classing bikini or tankini, bottoms are running a little bigger this year, with a more retro 50's and 60's inspired figure.

Just because you're pregnant, there's no reason to miss out on the latest trends. With 2011 bringing diversity and pregnant-friendly styles across the board, now is a great time to be rocking that maternity style!
