When I first found out I was pregnant I made it a mission to make sure I didn’t lose my sense of style. I knew comfort was going to play a major part in my wardrobe as my body would be adjusting and stretching to grow another human. My excitement to shop for maternity clothes quickly wore off after a very unsuccessful trip to the mall. It was the first time in my life I left the mall feeling pretty discouraged. I hated the way everything looked on my new body. I don’t know why, but in my personal opinion maternity clothes are just not that cute. They definitely didn’t meet my standard of style or fit.
Luckily I have Epic Rain! Endless amounts of styles that I can play with to create stylish looks. I figured I’d always mix Epic Rain into my maternity wear but somehow I have managed to make it all I wear. Below I’m breaking down a few outfits I’m currently obsessed with! They are perfect for Fall, on trend, sexy, & fun! I believe you 100% can be stylish & pregnant! Scroll to the bottom of this post to see a video and images of how I pulled the following looks together.
This season is all about velvet, jewel tones, leopard print, oversized jackets, plaid everything & statement shoes! When I think about this seasons style my brain instantly goes to the movie clueless!
Outfit #1 – I paired our navy velvet crush leggings with our new holiday emerald green bomber, & a graphic tee. I of course went with my epic babe / baby shirt because it’s my favorite & topped the look off with my velvet over the knee maroon boots! Most people would never think to mix all of these vibrant colors together. I always try and step out of the box of a bit. I took casual pieces and made a statement outfit, all while being extremely comfy! Don’t be afraid to mix colors especially if they share the same fabric type. In this case everything was velvet which made the styles pop! I literally felt like I was wearing pj’s all day because all of these pieces are comfortable around the belly. Once I had it on, the compliments came rolling in!
Outfit #2- I love a classic black shift dress. Especially during the holidays! You can eat & drink what you what & anything expanding under it isn’t shown! This makes for a great maternity style. I love our black beauty velvet dress, it’s comfortable & has such a classic look. The off the shoulder sleeve detail gives this style a little sass! I also love that while it has that detail, the thick straps hold the dress up in place. You can also wear a regular bra! This is definitely my go to dress at the moment for any oh so fancy occasion. I paired it with my star booties and leopard jacket to make the outfit pop! However a black bootie, over the knee boots, or heels will look just as great!
Outfit #3- This one is for all of my leopard lovers! These leggings are seriously so comfortable & cute! Every time I wear them out people ask where they’re from. I said it before & I’ll say it again, leopard print is hot right now! If you don’t have it you need it! I paired them with our Epic Cozy Black Sweater. This sweater is super soft & has a cut out neckline detail. Also available in rust orange! I rocked this look with red booties. You can’t go wrong with the classic mixture of leopard, red, & black! This combination of styles is definitely maternity outfit goals!
Outfit #4- Give me all the sequence & skulls this season! This new sequence skirt is part of the new Epic Rain Holiday Collection. I am so obsessed with the sparkle I had to start rocking it now. To give room around my belly & for length I sized up. I took our Sassy skull button down top and tied it at the top of my baby belly! To keep the sparkle going I rocked this outfit with my silver glitter bootie heels. I call this my Halloween glam look! Be prepared to see me rocking this skirt again for Holiday with cozy sweaters! It’s definitely a must have statement piece.
Outfit #5- The moment I unpacked our Pretty In Bows Sweater Dress I fell madly in love! Usually, I don’t keep styles for myself in hopes of making sales, but I had to make an exception on this one. It’s another shift style dress so plenty of room from the chest down to knee. The sweater material is extremely soft. The slit bell sleeves with bow detail take this style from your basic grey sweater dress to something special. I pulled together this cozy look with our epic beanie hat, a plaid scarf, & white booties!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t fit all of my epic looks into the shoot for this post. I have so many more amazing outfits lined up to show y’all! As I go through this pregnancy journey I’ll be taking you along & showing you what I’m wearing. My hope is that I inspire you to find & create your own style, while embracing your new body & baby bump. Regardless of size, you can wear regular clothing that easily transitions during and after pregnancy. The best part is you won’t be wasting money on styles you wear for a short period of time or breaking the bank! All of the styles listed can be mix-matched, worn together, or separately with pieces you already own. It has always been a priority of mine to keep Epic Rain reasonably priced so everyone can afford to shop the brand! I didn’t attach links to each style because unlike many blogs mine is already attached to my Boutique. I did, however, list the names & prices of each item below.
Stay tuned! Next up on the blog I’m sharing my must have fall / winter shoes & how I stocked up on 6 pairs for under $200! Along with creating the perfect epically stylish table scape for the holidays, and my journey into making Epic Rain a Nashville staple for the next women of country.
