January 9, 2012
What will all the trendiest pregnant moms be wearing this year? From colorblocked tops to floral dresses, check out the hottest maternity fashion trends of 2012.
Bold colors are back this year – and the newest way to wear it is with the new colorblocking trend. Look for tops and dresses with bright squares of color, such as the pictured BCBG Colorblock Maternity blouse ($88) from A Pea in the Pod. A dress with a brightly colored hem or neckline is another way to wear this fun trend.
Floral prints are romantic, feminine and the perfect look for pregnant moms. This hot trend will be seen on everything from maxi dresses to blouses –and even on bags! Check out this flirty and fun Stretch Fabric Maternity Dress (on sale for $29.99 from Motherhood) in a gorgeous gray and aqua floral print.
Polka dots were seen all over the runways and are a hot trend for 2012. How can you pull this look off when you are pregnant? Look for a small polka dot print, versus a large print which could make you look bigger. Muted colors are more flattering to pregnant moms. Check out the Drape Front Maternity Blouse in camel polka dots ($19) from Motherhood Maternity.
Bump-hugging fashions that show off your pregnancy curves, instead of hide them, are the hottest trends for pregnant moms. Celebrity moms-to-be including Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff and Beyonce had fun flaunting their baby bumps in sexy cocktail dresses, tunic tops and maxi dresses.
