Pregnancy Style: Monsoon

One of the things that I’m seeing is that there is not much ‘style’ to maternity wear hence looking in the shops for non-maternity clothes is always on my radar. Would you believe Monsoon has some great options for mums-to-be at the moment.

Coatigans and statement coats

Monsoon has always had the best selection of statement coats and this season they have added to this with some spectacular coatigans (a cardigan come coat), something you can wear over plain black basics that can really dress up your look. This could be a great option for Christmas for expectant Mums. Wear over a plain black dress and black opaque tights. My personal favourite is the black and white animal print one.

Kimonos are also an expectant mums best friend as they can be worn over long sleeve t-shirts and still look great and dressy. Saoirse Ronan’s stylist Grace Moore revealed on Twitter that  that she lived in Kimonos during her pregnancy.

Gilets are a must-have for anyone who is pregnant in winter (I’d be lost without my gilet as it’s great for layering up and keeping warm- follow @WhatSheWears on Instagram to see lots of pictures of this). This loop one from Monsoon has caught my eye.

Drop Waist Dress

Finally, if you are looking to ‘dress up’ over the party season, consider a drop waist dress as this allows plenty of room for the bump – just go a few sizes up from your pre-pregnancy size.  These drop waist dresses are from the Monsoon Fusion range.
