Pregnancy fashion: How to wear maternity leggings
January 6, 2010
We recently discussed skinny jeans as the hot pregnancy fashion trend, thanks in part to stylish pregnant celebrities like Nicole Richie. Pregnancy Fashion reader Amanda pointed out another hot maternity trend – maternity leggings!
Maternity leggings are a great alternative to skinny jeans. Some expecting moms will find they are more comfortable than maternity jeans due their amazing stretch. As Amanda mentioned, many maternity leggings feature a full-panel only, so some moms who tend to get overheated may not like this feature.
How do you wear the maternity leggings look? Pair leggings with a long tunic top or pullover. I love this look from EverydayMaternity.com. Their Queen Mum Black Maternity Leggings (pictured) actually feature a foldable panel for those moms who don’t like the full panel.
Accessorize your leggings with a belt, worn low under your belt. For a night out, pair your leggings with heels or wear them with ballet flats for a more casuel look during the day.
Where can you buy maternity leggings? The pictured Queen Mum Leggings are based out of the UK, for those of us in the US, check out the versatile line at DestinationMaternity.com. Some stand-outs include the Secret Fit Belly Jersey Knit 5 Pocket Slim Leg Maternity Legging ($48) from A Pea in the Pod and, for those rockin’ moms, you will love the grey/white tie dye pattern of the Jersey Knit Slim Leg Maternity Leggings ($39.99), also from A Pea in the Pod.
