Fashion Lookbook: Get Inspired by These 7 Maternity Outfits Leah Ashley Rocked

leah style 981

The only sad part about FABLife day time lifestyle talk show Stylist Leah Ashley giving birth to her first child is that am going to miss the very stylish ways she assembled her clothes while pregnant. The co-host to the new show and started her career as a popular YouTuber used accent colors and mix and matched with texture and layered wonderfully to pull together a perfectly styled maternity wardrobe.

I enjoy recreating outfits I’ve seen and hunting down similar if not the same piece. I am a firm believer in not reinventing the wheel. That being said, I spent some time curating my fave looks Ashley wore while preggers and shared on her Instagram page and assembled them into style collections. I share below why I loved each look and where you can get a similar items to recreate the looks. I’m going to pin these on our Bellyitch Maternity Fashion page which you can access.

First above, a chunky cable knit sweater over slouchy sweatpants with a leopard scarf draped in an infinity loop around the neck is a great casual weekend look.

Overalls were in style for everyone for a couple of seasons now. That is perfect because traditionally that’s what pregnant women wore because there wasn’t much maternity options. Here, Ashley mixed denim, light denim shirt with stone washed overalls and accented with red slingbacks. Perfect. The statement necklace polishes off the look and is unexpected because it is so ornate compared to super cas denim.

This ensemble can only work during the first trimester when a mom-to-be hasn’t popped quite much yet, but still wants to conceal a growing bump under a fairly loose top. Pairing this black silk turtleneck with drawstring shorts does the trick. The gladiator boots adds some chic flavor.

Gingham is also a big pattern this year. And also great for hiding a bump in the early months are peplum tops. This top over denim skinny jeans are the money. Add red ballet slippers for cute outfit to wear child shopping or out and about during the weekend.

For more dressy functions or work, a comfy black dress works and wedges are perfect for getting some height but are less unstable as heels. A leather motorcycle jacket is a great outerwear topper. Bucket bags are perfect for carrying all your stuff.

My eyes immediately went to her heels. Oooh la la. It looks effortlessly stylish and polka dot with anything is classic. With Ashley’s short crop hair, it gives me a modern Audrey Hepburn feel. Love it!

This isn’t a complete outfit but I like the idea of mixing patterns. Here, her gingham cropped pants worn with black and white pumps work so well together. Break the rules why don’t you?

There you go. Hope they inspired your maternity wardrobe for the next few months.

During this past week’s Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, fashionistas who are preggers might have peeped some pretty cool trends they’d love to wear this Spring. Those stylish divas who are first to sport the latest trends may be wondering how they could pull it off while incubating a bun in the oven.
We usually recommend moms-to-be avoid trends and execute them in accessories, scarves, jewelry, belts, hats and other non clothing items, but this season, we saw some trends that are maternity friendly.
The collared shirt, pastels, wide leg pants and collarless coats and jackets, for example, are some of the trends we peeped on runway shows that could actually be converted into a maternity version.
Here are some pieces we curated for you to check out for inspiration, powered by Shopstyle!
