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
its own this season with animal prints, lace, patterned tights and
jeggings moving into the limelight. The thing to remember is that if you
are going to wear patterned tights, remember they can add bulk, so

ears, and rugging up in winter is all-too tempting with a range of flat,
supportive (more music) and chic motorcycle and riding boots available.
For swollen ankles or lower legs, motorcycle boots are probably the
best bet, as these can be adjusted and look fantastic worn slouchy.
Riding boots give a more polished look and sit further up the calf, but
are great for supporting those ankles as your body shifts.
layering, how we love thee! This season there are so many hot new
trends that you'll have to get into layering just to wear them all!
Because it's all about neutral tones this season, we're recommending
casual and generous white tees with long cardigans in grey or brown,
teamed with neutral, loose-knit scarves and of course, this season's
must-have jacket, the shearling, (leather with a cosy sheepskin trim
around the collar) worn open. Another hot trend this year is the
cape/poncho, perfect for rugging up during all stages of pregnancy and
so bang-on trend that you'll feel like you've stepped straight off the
runway. Choose one in camel, grey or cargo green, or go a little wild
and choose a patterned cape.
(in fact, swimwear in general, it seems) tends to leave the shelves
during the winter months, but for those of us with changing bodies who
still enjoy swimming at the gym or indoor pool, this can be a bit of a
problem. The best option is to jump online and check out some maternity
swimwear outlets--they'll be sure to have a diverse range to choose
from, and what's best, they might even be on sale...

Exercise can improve your strength, posture, sleep and circulation, help control weight, give you more energy and some relief from stress, boost your moods, and it can have social benefits as well.
