Marie Hindkaer Andersen of ‘Blame It On Fashion’ puts a new-season spin on four classic coats.
Not only is this forgiving shape perfect for pregnancy, the cocoon silhouette is a hallmark of the ’60s – fashion’s current favourite decade. Play up the retro redux by layering Iro’s flattering style over an A-line shift accessorised with over-the-knee suede boots.
Cut for a relaxed fit and in a knee-grazing length, Maje’s baseball-style bomber is the ultimate weekend coat. Button it up over a knitted dress during the early stages of pregnancy, then style it open nearer your due date with a statement sweater and sneakers for a casual finish.
The utilitarian staple gets a luxurious update in double-faced cashmere by Joseph. Teamed with the label’s stretch knit pencil skirt and sleek sandals it has a city-chic feel, with the added bonus of being oh-so cosy – a detail that is important if you are expecting.
This enduring fashion classic is an ideal style for expecting and a timeless investment that will remain a go-to piece in your wardrobe long after pregnancy. Cinch the belt of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s coat above your bump and you’ll look instantly polished (even if you are wearing sweatpants underneath).
