If you haven’t already, it really is time to start thinking about our winter wardrobe – so this post is all about winter coats and jackets. The Autumn/Fall/Winter collections are currently being launched, so as usual, we thought we would bring to you our favourites. So here we go:
Fragile Maternity Straight Coat – £249 – A stunning maternity coat from the Belgium maternity fashion house, Fragile. In luxury wool and mohair mix this is a versatile coat that will see you through the winter in style. In jet black, the coat has a versatile collar that can be worn flat or press-studded up. There are two flat side pockets that fit flush into the coat. The buttons are covered large press-studs to provide a clean line on the front of the coat. We love it.
Lightweight Maternity Coat – £89 – A fully lined black maternity coat to keep you stylish and warm this winter. This beautiful coat has large buttons, detachable belt, decorative pockets and pleated cuffs to create a coat with classic styling. The pleats on the empire line will give your bump the room it needs as you progress through your pregnancy.
Maternity Navy Military Coat – £75 – This season work some military shape into your wardrobe with this navy coat from the Red Herring Maternity range. The stylish shape and detailing presents a high funnel collar and gold uniform buttons, with a generous middle for you to rock your bump.
Wool Military Full Skirt Coat – £100 – Soft wool-mix military coat, double breasted style with button-through front and funnel neckline with pleated full skirt design. This one’s also available in a petite fitting.
Tulip Coat – £65 – This is a double breasted navy winter weight coat. A wool mix and machine washable. Perfect for the fashion forward mum-to-be.
Plain Button Coat – £35 – Double breasted button coat with a pleated waistline and buttoned cuffs. We like the detail which includes contrast satin lining and curved bust darts.
Lambswool Coat – £95.00 – This one will accommodate your bump all the way through. It has a slimming A-line, and a clever pleat at the back to allow the fabric to extend as you grow. The round neck and feminine pockets give a classic Chanel look and you can accentuate your empire line with the removable belt. It has such a flattering and elegant cut that you could wear it after the birth.
Kimono Wrap – £109 – Adore the multi functionality and strong graphic presence of this wrap. The kimono sleeves and removable belt are great, enabling you to wear belted, unbelted or open over wide leg maternity trousers, jeans or leggings.
** Update – Spotted by Bambino Goodies – one of our favourite review sites – the Topshop Maternity Belted Coat, it’s gorgeous, it’s on trend but also a design classic and a bargain at £95. Check it out, and snap it up quickly as we expect it will be a best seller!
Trend Alert – Military jackets and coats are EVERYWHERE this winter. If you’re looking for a cheap alternative, pop to Primark and check out the range they have. They’re more jacket than coat and do make sure you stay well away from the shiny polyester ones, but some of the others are great. Depending on the size of your bump, you may need to accept that they wont do up, but with a long scarf wrapped round and left slightly trailing they’re definitely worth checking out. You can keep the bump warm with a BumpBand – and for £20 or there about, who cares?!
