It is understandable that you will feel a bit lost once you can no longer fit into your favorite pair of jeans or your never-fail wrap dress. Lucky for you, PB's list of all the tried-and-true maternity fashion finds (from both "real" moms and celebrity moms) will soon be your new go-to clothes, trust us. In fact, you may like them so much, you won't want to give them up once baby arrives!
A maternity essential: designer denim
The "It" pair of jeans among the celebrity set that includes Angelina Jolie and Katie Holmes is the Habitual Maternity Jeans. They have a hip underbelly fit, adjustable waistband and an ultra-slimming cut. We kid you not -- these jeans look like your favorite non-maternity jeans. If the $186 price tag scares you away, think about this: they make great post-baby or transition jeans.
Share the news with style
It's a rite of pregnancy passage that you own at least one cute maternity graphic tee. You will love the hip vintage cotton feel as much as the cute message in the 2 Chix Maternity Tees. The blue or pink baby feet in the "What's Kickin'" tee will help you announce your baby news in style. Pick up the What's Kickin Tee for $38.00 at 2Chix.com.
The "undiaper bag"
The Storksak Gigi Shoulder Bag in Chocolate is so cool that it's said to be Angelina Jolie's bag of choice. Made with nylon satin and trimmed with leather, this bag is as sleek and duraz2x3cble as it is functional. It features a removable insulated bottle holder, matching changing mat and tons of wipe-clean compartments to keep you organized. The Storksak Gigi bag is available at Due Maternityfor $198; add it to your shower list and let your cousins chip in for it!
Layer it, baby!
Long-layering Camis may look basic, but they are oh-so-versatile. You can wear them under low-cut shirts to conceal cleavage, under too-short shirts to extend their wear or by themselves when lounging around the house. Pick up the Maternity Long Layering Camis at Old Navy for $8.50 each (or 2 for $15).
Dubbed her "pregnancy uniform" by actress Annabeth Gish, the Juicy Couture Maternity Velour Hoody and Drawstring Pants are the ultimate in stylish comfort. The plush velour set with the signature 'J' zipper pull is cut to accommodate your body from week one to week 40 and beyond. The Juicy Couture Maternity Velour Hoodie ($63.90 on sale) and Pants ($64.90) are available at Nordstrom.
Cute and casual dress that won't break the bank
Opt for the cut and the color of this Short Sleeve V-neck Striped Dress from Motherhood Maternity (on sale $19.99, originally priced at $30). Actress Naomi Watts was seen running errands in this stylish frock
Get 'em while you can still see 'em
Popular with both the pregnant and the non-pregnant set, metallic ballet flats are the perfect stylish shoe for the mom-to-be. Celebrity moms like Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera pay $495 for a pair of Lanvin ballet flats, but we think a pair of BP 'Edie' Metallic Leather Ballet Flat($44.95) is just as cute.
Your favorite pants-to-be
When jeans feel too constricting, you need a fabulous pair of pants to pull on. The Chiarakruza Klee Pant, worn by such fashionable mamas as Madonna and Access Hollywood host Nancy O'Dell, are as hip as they are comfortable. You'll find yourself reaching for these pants day after day. The Klee Pant ($99) is available at Chiarakruza.com.
You will love the cool, funky look of the Nom Madonna Combo skirt/crop pant combo. Worn by actress Julia Roberts when she was pregnant, this combo can be paired with your favorite graphic tee or top for a fuss-free look. Pick up the Nom Madonna Combo for $98 at Belly Dance Maternity.
Isabella Oliver has found a way of designing maternity clothes that are so sexy and stylish you will covet them long after you are pregnant. Their secret is in the design and details (wrapping, ruching and shirring) that keep you looking sleek and stylish. The Cap Wrap Around Top can be dressed up or dressed down and features Isabella's signature wrapping to ensure a perfect fit throughout pregnancy.
Flared and fabulous
The Maternity Flared Skirts ($12) from Old Navy are a must-have addition to your maternity wardrobe. You can wear them to work, to the mall or just lounging around the house because this skirt is the ultimate in versatility and comfort. Did I mention they are only $12?
