Pregnancy can present a few challenges when it comes to personal styling. From my experience, the changes in your body during pregnancy can be a bit unpredictable. One day your favorite clothing piece fits like a glove and the next day the fit is more like… a stuffed sausage. Throughout my pregnancy I took a different approach to clothing and fashion. Rather than purchasing maternity specific clothes online or in-store, I made pieces I already had in my closet work for my changing body as well as attend clothing swaps with friends, and hit up my local Goodwill. I found this to be a much more cost-effective and sustainable way to dress myself and my growing baby bump.
In this post I’m sharing 4 different pregnancy outfit ideas for Fall and Winter. I could ramble on about the many different pregnancy and maternity styling tips I have but in this post (and the video below) I am focusing on one specific styling method. Let me know if you have an interest in any other styling methods or issues and I can create some more content specific to fashion.

These outfits are a great example of how you can create fun outfits for your pregnancy, or anytime while using pieces you already have or sourcing clothes from sustainable options like clothing swaps and thrift stores.

Quick Tip: For any of these outfits you could accent your baby bump with a belt that sits just above the stomach. This can add definition and shape to your look. Would you wear any of these styles? Let me know in the comments!
