Winter Maternity Wear

Winter has well and truly hit! Even up here in Brisbane I had to put the heater on the other day. I heard it was the coldest June day in Brisbane since the 1920s. Brrrr it sure was a shock to the system. Funnily enough, we have had heaps of calls lately from people wanting to know if we still have winter stock available. We do – and here are some suggestions to get you through this woolly weather.

The Ripe Knit Jacket (right) is a perfect addition to your maternity wardrobe. Knit jackets and cardigans are so fashionable this season. The thing that is great about this jacket is that you can wear it pregnant or not. The belt allows you to add some shape and will cinch the knit in once your bump has gone.

Another trend that is so hot right now is layering. GlowMama instore customers have got right in to the layering trend and love the Alice Knit and the Juliet Shift Dress (pictured left). This combination looks so stylish when teamed with a pair of classic opaque tights or leggings.

A great top for layering is the beautifully soft Wyse Modal long sleeve. This top is now only available in larger sizes and we have some fab colours such as olive green and orange which are sure to brighten you up on these bleak winter days. The Wyse tops will remain a wardrobe staple long after your bub has arrived. Another item that will remain a favourite after bub arrives is the Perfect Dress. Looks summery right? Layer it over a long sleeve top such as the Mesh Turtle Neck and you will have a versatile outfit that will take you from winter to summer.

For a little extra layering warmth you can't go past the Soon 100% wool knits. These tops are nice and fine and won't give you any extra bulk. They are great if you are sick of all the "blousy" maternity fashions out there right now and want to let your bump show.

No wardrobe - maternity or not - is complete without a good pair of jeans. It just so happens that we have a fabulous selection of jeans available - all catering to different tastes and figure types. Check out our range of maternity jeans here. If you want something different from the norm, the Soon Band Jeans (right) are available in black. We also have Soon’s fabulous straight leg cords – we only have size 10 left so get in quick ..

So here we have it - woolly cardigans and knits, essential layering pieces and a fab pair of jeans. Add to the mix a beautiful scarf, some ankle boots and opaque tights and you have a mix and match wardrobe that will help keep you snug in the cooler months.
