How to Rock Maternity Fashion this Winter
As the days get shorter and chillier, it becomes more difficult to stay warm, comfortable and fashionable in maternity wear
all at the same time! This winter, in both maternity wear and
non-maternity fashion, it's all about layering and neutral tones with
splashed of rich (rather than bright) colours.
tights trend has definitely carried over from 2010, and again this
season we'll be seeing lots of tunic-style tops with tights or leggings
underneath. Tights are no longer simply black standards that you buy
three pairs of and move one--the tights trend has moved into a realm of

jeggings moving into the limelight. The thing to remember is that if you

from, and what's best, they might even be on sale...
