“Maternity” + “Fashion” aren’t two words one usually puts together. At the Destination Maternity Holiday Preview, however, the two were a perfect pair. Designers have proven that maternity clothes can be fashionable, while still maintaining the necessary comfort and function that us pregnant women need.
Destination Maternity (also Motherhood Maternity and A Pea in the Pod) has a beautiful line of clothes coming out this holiday season. At this preview, I saw collections from A Pea in the Pod, Jessica Simpson and Destination Maternity:
The Jessica Simpson collection focused a lot on body conscious pieces, such as dresses with a flattering silhouette (specifically requested by Jessica Simpson herself!).
The Destination Maternity collection had Alice in Wonderland and Velveteen Rabbit themes, as well as some cute baby clothes and graphic tee’s.
A Pea in the Pod collection boasted lots of different textures and some glamorous pieces perfect for the holiday season.
From dresses to jeans to tee’s, it was all there. One underlying trend I saw in all of the collections was mixing different textures and fabrics, like leather and lace or lace with soft cotton. It creates some drama and interest in what could otherwise be considered a plain top or dress. So this season, let’s mix it up a bit!
Thank you to Destination Maternity for showing me their new line. A swag bag was received.
