Maternity wear does not have to be boring and outdated. Today, the fashion world has become so vast that even maternity wear comes is so much variety. If you are still lost in trance thinking about your winter wardrobe choices to clothe your pregnant self, then here are some of the things you may want to consider. We listed these factors along with celebrity and blog-inspired maternity fashion ideas to help you rock your maternity winter clothing in style!
#1 Go for warm fabrics that aren’t too heavy
Winter wear tend to be really heavy because of the thick materials that are commonly used for it. Fortunately, it’s not always the case. You can still keep yourself warm by resorting to warm but lighter fabrics. Such fabrics are wool, knits and cashmere. You can still go for your favorite long-sleeved top and layer on a winter cardigan to add some warmth. In addition, there are also trousers and leggings made from wool to keep your legs warm. In this photo we found on Pinterest, she styles up her casual maternity wear with a pair of warm ankle boots and a cotton beanie.
#2 Wrap up with Knits and Faux Furs
Whether you choose to wrap yourself up in coats or layers, you can never go wrong with a knitted top and faux fur accessory. Fur clothing is quite heavy and when you are pregnant, it may be hard to go around with that heavy baby bump and hefty clothing! Cardigans with fur linings or fur scarves can be great alternatives for huge fur coats. We can take nit from Blake Lively, who looked like a fashionista momma with her monochrome maternity ensemble comprised of fur, knit and warm trousers.
#3 Go for Puffer Vests
Instead of going for bulky puffer coats, you can resort to something that will allow you to move much better – puffer vests. Of course, it still gives you and your baby the warmth you need for the freezing winter season. You can layer it over knitted long-sleeved tops or flannels. It is much lighter and it never goes out of style as well. It can be worn with jeans or skirts too! [Read how to dress puffer coat in style.]
#4 Layer on Oversized Cape Tops
Oversized clothing has always been a huge hit in the fashion world for the past 10 years. For winter, stylish oversized capes are definitely a must-have for everyone, especially pregnant mommies. It is usually made from lightweight material that is thick enough to keep you warm. You can layer it over pretty much any kind of top you want! As for Jessica Alba, she steps out on the streets with an oversized khaki brown cape top layered over a plaid blouse. The oversized cape top is also long enough to cover her entire arms and a portion of her legs. The only thing with oversized cape tops is that they are usually limited to pairing with skinny jeans or pencil skirts, or else, it’ll drown your shape up.

#5 Start Wearing your Knee-high Boots More Often
Knee-high boots are very fashionable in a sense that it really flatters the legs, whether you are wearing a pair of shorts, pants, skirt, etc. The thing with it is that it may be a little uncomfortable to wear. Well, that would all be worth it especially during the winter season. Knee-high boots are actually more recommended for pregnant women because it gives you more warmth and balance rather than going for the usual types of shoes. It wraps your legs fully which makes it easier for you to walk in comfort. In addition to that, knee-high boots are quite easy to mix and match with any type of winter maternity wardrobe you choose.
#6 Keep Your Hands Warm with Fashionable Gloves
Gloves come in so many variants but if you are looking for something more feminine and classy, you may want to consider getting gloves out of leather, velvet, cashmere, satin or knit. It gives the same amount of warmth you need for your arms and hands while keeping it very elegant. It will go very well on casual winter attires or for formal outfits! Just like this photo we found on the internet, soft pastel gloves would look gorgeous on wool blend capes and leggings – perfect to shield your baby bump from the cold!

It is a great fashion piece to have when you are pregnant because it really wraps your body up to keep all those winter chills at bay. In addition to that, wool blend coats have always been quite fashionable and edgy! We found this photo of Jessica Biel braving the cold winter season during the time that she was pregnant. Her chic gray wool blend coat goes seamlessly casual with her denim jeans. To go for a classic monochromatic look, she went for a matching scarf and beanie to top it all off.
