Come on up, get into the limelight! Being pregnant in the past meant making do with what you have and trying to hide that glorious bump. Well, not anymore! With transitional styles evocative of Fashion Week now available for pregnant women, there's absolutely no need to be a wallflower.
From rocking your body in dresses & heels to wondering if that’s a good look for you, and from loving your vintage jeans to absolutely hating the button-up process (you know what we’re talking about!), pregnancy is all about swiping right and left on your style.In this case, what’s a girl got to do? The answer lies in evolution. As zen as that may sound, the key to having incomparable pregnancy style is to evolve your current style.
For us at The Mommy Collective, there’s just something about a well-fitted pair of pants. Not only are they great for on-the-go, they are solid investment pieces that grow with your body from pregnancy to that post-natal phase when you’re bound to be running around. Plus, they’re so comfortable - a no-brainer, actually.
If you're looking for inspiration, here's a few tips and tricks that can steer you towards the right direction.
Comfort is key
Spotted a cute pair of pants but they cut into your sides. Not worth it. During the most special time of your life, you don't need to worry about ill-fitted maternity pants.
The quickest way to know if they'll be comfortable is to check the fabric - stretch fabrics are great for on the go - perfect for working moms while breathable fabrics such as cotton are gentle on the skin and look great.
Everyday staples such as our All Rounder Tracks and Jammy Bottoms, are perfect for running errands to office meetings. Not only are they super comfortable but they’re right on trend with Athleisure too. Pair them with a statement tee or a knitted top and white sneakers and you’re good to go!

Experiment with style
Every well-fitted pair of pants will be designed to give a lot of support but there are still fun elements that can be used to elevate the look. From tapered ends to wide ends, tie up accessories to drawstrings, it’s the little things that give it contemporary flair.
The tiny details in our Lizzie Straight Fit Pants give it an edge over the others. A flattering cut with cute tie accents lend a very French air to the trousers. Pair it with a striped shirt & oversized pearls and you’re off to brunch at the club!

Don't shy away from colour
Wave your style flag high! Usually, there are quite a few neutrals available in maternity style. But, we’re all about colour - bold and bashful, sweet and confident. Playing around with colours, especially for dinners and Sunday brunches adds a whole other dimension to your maternity style.
We love the Ilha High Waist Pants for their fighting spirit! Fiercely red, they’re great for styling up or down. Want to take things up a notch? May we suggest pairing these maternity pants with a high-intensity colour top such as persian blue or blush pink. That’s Colourblocking 101. Want to keep it low-key? Pair with a soft neutral such as a dove grey or a taupe and wear minimal accessories.
