Rebecca Minkoff, 33, is a fabulous fashion designer and she herself is currently pregnant with her second child. Rebecca wanted to feel sexy and comfortable while wearing maternity clothes, so she teamed up with Two Peas and a Pod to come up with some designs that she would wear herself. She gave some good advice on wearing maternity clothes for this upcoming winter season and her favorite maternity picks.
“For me, dressing my bump depended what stage of the pregnancy I was in. At the beginning, I liked baggier clothing with more layers and then once I ‘popped,’ I liked to show the bump and wear tighter-fitting dresses with blazers and slouchy sweaters over them.”
Staying warm without overheating can be a challenge while pregnant, but Minkoff offers up the perfect solution: “I liked wearing our Wes Moto jacket or fur vest when I was pregnant—they worked well with my pregnant figure and were not too bulky.”
“It’s not ideal to spend tons of money on a pricey coat that you’ll only be able to wear during your pregnancy, so Minkoff suggests getting the most out of your money with a wrap coat. “It’s so on trend right now—definitely great for a woman during her pregnancy and after.”
For dressier occasions, Minkoff suggests swapping out your heels and embracing of-the-moment trends. “Sneakers are in right now, so I’d wear my favorite pairs with a dress and a cute moto jacket.”
“I think pregnancy is sexy—I say embrace it! Wear things that make you feel powerful, sexy and great and show off that bump.”
