Fall season is all about holiday dresses, sweaters and jackets. For the fashionable mom-to-be who sometimes get overheated, these cooler weather clothing season may spell trouble. The key is to layer, and wear clothing made of breathable fabric. In my opinion, you cannot go wrong with Isabella Oliver.
I’ve loved the brand since I was first starting my family. The price point is moderate and the majority of the clothing is made with ruching on the side so you can grow with it and wear the brand all 40 weeks and well into the 4th trimester as you deal with life with a new baby. It is a style that is well known and liked by several of the celebrity moms featured on this blog.
Style may be the last thing on your mind so having a few quality IO pieces in the solid colors the brand is known for like greys, black, and navy, and you can do no wrong. I curated 7 looks based on Fashion bloggers and Instagrammers that have rocked IO well while pregnant and after. Here is the rundown:
Blogger Clarissa Alvarado does HBIC chic excellent. This Isabella Oliver Layering Tank for $37 (down from $74) is long so you can layer it under sweaters and jackets. It comes with an internal shelf bra for extra support and can be worn during pregnant and after. It’s made of soft premium jersey material. You can get the boohoo Maternity Waterfall Belted Jacket for $28. Carissa is wearing Top Shop’s Side Pipe Joggers ($60) which is sold out but can be substituted for Duo Maternity’s Overbelly Straight-Leg Trouser Pants ($23). Not sure what quilted bag she’s carrying but I’d go with Michael Kors Whitney Mini Leather Satchel for $142 and I think Tom Ford shades would work.
I love London-based Beatriz’s look. She rocked a cropped leather jacket. Andrew Marc Bowne Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($89) would work. Isabella Oliver’s Caia Maternity Strip shirt ($63) I’d connect the look with a black polka dot scarf from Tie Bar ($10). J Brand skinny maternity jeans are tops. ($198). Hoof it in a pair of black Chuck Taylor ($55) high top tennis shoes. I’m digging her quilted Chanel Caviar Classic Jumbo Double Flap Bag. ($4K)
It’s fall but you could still wear Isabella Oliver’s Brunswick Maternity dress for any Holiday party this season! Love it and it is just $149! Fashion Blogger Shay Sweeney rocket it when she was expecting with gladiator sandals and a box bag for the day look. While Megan Christine worked it as an evening look with a black clutch. I’d go with Sole Society‘s faux leather clutch ($45)
Postpartum moms can do no wrong by sticking with wrap dresses, A-line dresses and dresses with empire waist tops after baby like Vintage and Grace blogger did in this Isabella Oliver Elisha Maternity Dress ($168) that she paired with black pumps.
Just because you’re preggers doesn’t mean you cannot rock skinny jeans either. Several brands sell the style to accommodate expecting women like Good American’s Honeymoon low rise jeans ($149) or Asos’s brand for much less at $23. I love how expecting Australian blogger Sharday Engel looks in this post from her Instagram.
