Cute maternity dresses and outfits for fall

July 29, 2013 12:00 AM by

Cute maternity dresses can make all the difference in the fall when the weather is changing and the temperatures are slipping into cooler climates. From sweaters to fuzzy socks, the warmer clothing that women can wear, the more likely they are to feel comfortable during the seasons as they transform.

Dressing your baby bump to the nines is equally essential as you get ready for the upcoming season. Consider these helpful tips to find cute maternity dresses for the fall to complement your bump, and also stay in style throughout your next trimester!

Wraparound dresses
Stylish maternity dresses in the fall can come in different varieties, but if you want a good standby, go with a wraparound dress. By framing your bump and drawing attention to your chest area, wraparound dresses can be just the thing to take your fall season to extraordinary levels, and they can also be great to pair with sweaters, coats and scarves.

Dark jeans
Never underestimate the power of stretchy fit jeans, especially in the fall months. Some moms-to-be (especially first time mothers) may think that being pregnant means never getting the chance to dust off those skinny jeans and see if they can complement your changing body type.

However, jeans that are made just for pregnant women can be a great choice for those who are looking to invigorate their wardrobes during autumn. If you opt to invest in dark jeans, these pants can have a slimming effect and enhance the look of your baby belly.

Layer it up
With that big baby bump you’ve been rocking, chances are you’re a little less excited about the idea of donning a thick, heavy sweater over your already bulging belly, because let’s be honest - won’t it make you feel a little bit bigger?

While it can definitely be cozy to wear a thick top, you may want to complement this look – and make yourself appear less hefty in the front – by layering up instead. While you’re outdoors, this can help you stay warm against those brittle and harsh autumn winds, but once you’re inside, you can easily slip out of these cumbersome clothes and let your skin – and belly – breathe a while.

Layering can also be wonderful if you’re looking to experiment with different types of hues. Think marigold and russet shades aren’t for you? By adding pops of color here and there, you can show these colors are just right for your complexion, or find out once and for all they’re just not your thing. Either way, shades that are unconventional can be great to glimpse in layers.
