Autumn Pregnancy Clothes
Transitional fashion is always tricky. In autumn it can be sunny one minute and pouring the next. Finding the right maternity pieces for autumn that will keep you cosy, look great and work with other layers can be difficult. It’s not like you have all the time in the world to shop either – you’re pregnant!
That’s why we’ve chosen 6 of the key trends for autumn 2022 and hunted for the best maternity clothes for you that will be on trend and comfortable throughout autumn.
1. Bright, Bold Pinks
Thanks to Valentino, hot pink has made a major comeback, and honestly, we love it. Whether you want to add a pop of colour to your usual wardrobe or deck yourself out in head to toe pink - and live that barbie fantasy – now’s the time!
This comfortable tunic is only £19.99 from H&M and gives the effortless luxury of classic shapes with pretty sleeve details and a curved hem line – we're sure it will quickly become an autumn pregnancy wardrobe staple.
This pure cotton jumper (now on sale for £35!) in a gorgeous shade of pink is cosy as well as practical – a perfect addition to your maternity clothes - the front panel lifts up for nursing access, perfect for feeding when your new baby arrives.
Autumn and winter are also party season – so if you have any big parties coming up and are in dire need of a fun autumn pregnancy outfit, a bold pink number might be the statement you've been looking for. We particularly love this bright wrap around dress (£55) with a dramatic dip hem and ruffle details.
2. Kick it with some flares
Flares are the shape of the season – and no, they won’t throw your proportions out whilst you’re pregnant, they’ll actually add a little balance. The best maternity clothes should have a little stretch to be comfortable, whilst also looking great, that’s why we suggest some flared leggings like these for your pregnancy wardrobe.
This classic black pair are just £17.99 and selling out fast – pair with a cosy jumper or t-shirt and some trainers for a laid back look.
If you really like the flared look, Zalando has this twin pack on offer (£44.99) – with a plain black pair as well as this fab cheetah print, to kick your autumn pregnancy fashion up a notch.
3. Hey Babydoll
The baby doll dress is here to stay through autumn, so it’s time to find yours, and add it to your autumn maternity wardrobe. To choose one that’s right for autumn, go for longer sleeves, a more wintery colour story and something that will match your jackets and scarves.
This wrap around version (£38) from Next has long sleeves, a floral print in darker, autumnal shades, and will be a quick way to look put-together this autumn.
This khaki baby doll dress (£26) is the perfect colour to match literally all of your autumn maternity clothing, and we adore the pretty layered skirt.
The best maternity clothes for autumn will also keep your spirits up as the nights get darker – this sunny blue dress with its exaggerated floral print is sure to do the job. Choose from blue, yellow or white to best match your other autumn pregnancy clothes and pair with tights, trainers and a cute denim jacket!
Like we said – autumn is party season so for a killer pregnancy party outfit for this autumn we had to throw in something with sequins (£45). Best of all – it comes in bright pink, so you can nail two key trends at once this season.
4. Tight Time!
Autumn is a great time to get those last few wears out of more summery pieces, like wearing your favourite floral dress with some thick tights and boots. It’s also a great time to start bringing out the knitted jumpers, scarves and jackets that you haven’t seen for months. We’ve mentioned tights a few times already now, because they’ll become a key part of your pregnancy wardrobe. This season lighter colours are actually on trend, as are chunkier knits. These are a few pairs we love for pregnancy style staples.
This grey cable knit pair of maternity tights from Next (£10) are perfect – lighter and trendier, but still toned down enough to match pretty much everything! Wear with boots, trainers or loafers.
If you do want a classic pair of black woollen tights, these are lovely (£35) and because they’re 50% wool they’ll keep you oh so cosy! Sometimes the best pregnancy clothes are the classics!
5. 90s Minimalism
The 90s are back in a big way, think grungy, sleek, low-effort minimalism. These are some of our top pics to keep your autumn pregnancy outfits on trend.
This floral slip dress just screams 90s, pair it with some black boots and you’re good to go! Oh and it’s also been reduced from £49 down to £14!
A comfy pair of dungarees is a must-have for your transitional pregnancy wardrobe. Layer with a t-shirt or jumper, with a jacket over or a huge coat, and feel comfortable all day. We like this classic black pair (£45) to match with pretty much everything you already have in your maternity wardrobe.
The tank top. Now hear us out, tank tops don’t seem like the most exciting garment out there, but in this month’s London fashion week they appeared on the runways of Prada, Chloe and Bottega Veneta, so the comfy classic has made its way back onto the fashion circuits!
This grey stretch version from Gap (£19) is perfect – and if recent runways are anything to go by you can wear it with pretty much anything you want!
6. Biker Chic
Biker is back (did it ever really leave?) so this autumn is the perfect time to invest in some edgier maternity clothing - letting your personality shine through your pregnancy wardrobe.
Pick up these leather-look over bump leggings from M&S
(£25) or alternatively you may prefer these from Spanx at a pricier £96.
You can pair them with casual pieces like t-shirts and denim, with girlier pieces like floral dresses, or even add a touch of sparkle with a glittery pregnancy top, when you dress up for a party! They are truly versatile additions to your maternity clothes for autumn. And to finish off the leather-look why not treat yourself to this trendy maternity trench coat (£30).
