Winter Maternity Style

Cute maternity fashion and style ideas for winter pregnancies

Ahh, winter season is upon us. And I'm STILL pregnant. And oddly, I know so many others who are expecting as well! They say that you notice things more when it happens to you, so it would make sense that I'd notice other pregnant women more, but I'll be danged if it doesn't seem like every blogger and a good chunk of my friends are expecting and due between Feb-May of next year. So ladies, this post is for you! A cute maternity look you can rock all winter long.

Winter maternity style. How to look cute pregnant this winter by layering fabrics to stay warm and fashionable in maternity clothes

We don't really get "winter" here in Dallas. We usually get one ice or snow(ish) storm a year and maybe two weeks of weather where the high's are in the 30 degree range. Other than that, it's how my Minnesota self would define "fall" weather. After putting in the better part of a quarter century in the most miserably cold place in the world (besides Canada), winters in Texas are absolutely amazeballs.

Sperry duck boots are perfect for Southern winters - keep your feet dry and warm!

You know what we do get, though? Rain. Lots of it. So these Sperry duck boots are great because unlike Hunter boots they're lightly lined to keep your toes warm in the cold, but just like Hunter boots the bottom is all rubber so you'll stay good and dry!

How to layer fabrics for winter maternity fashion and style

Another winter phenomenon here is rapidly changing temperatures. In the morning it can easily be in the 30's, so a down vest is perfect for warmth! But by 11am, it could already have climbed into the 50's, so a long sleeved shirt with an infinity scarf is what you need. Sometimes it will even be 70, so I'd ditch the scarf in that case, too!

Layers keep you the perfect temerature all winter long. Long sleeved tee shirt, down vest, wool infinity scarf

Basically, winter fashion in the South is all about layering and being prepared for rain. The mornings require a good amount of warmth, while the afternoons could even be "balmy"! This winter maternity look is perfect for that level of unpredictability with jeans, long sleeved tee shirt, a down vest, duck boots and a scarf. Put it all on in the morning and take most of it off before lunch - or not!

Maternity style can be hard, especially during the winter months when you can't wear a maxi or a skirt! These items fit well and hold their shape, are layer-able for ever changing weather and look great whether you're a part of this baby boom or not!


  1. I absolutely love that vest! The neckline is so different than the usual. One of my girlfriends is pregnant and she sent me a FB message yesterday that I'm killing her with all the sales and my skinny leggings over and over agin. She was "I can't find any good maternity fashion bloggers to follow" so naturally I referred her to you. This post is perfect!
    Also, I'm with you. When you grow up with the Winters and move away from it, you're like I'm good with the 60 degrees in the Winter no problem ;-)

  2. You look adorable! I just got a white vest (not as cool as the one you're rocking) during all of the sales, and can't wait to add it to the wardrobe.

  3. You are too incredibly adorable in that get-up, girlfriend. My sister abides by this fashion look, too! She showed up to Thanksgiving in pretty much exactly what you described. HAHA!

  4. I love this outfit! I'm pregnant too and will be dressing in lots of light layers for a mild florida winter. I'm also originally from Texas so I get how the temps can change so quickly!

  5. LOVE that vest! I have one similar in brown that I need to rock when it warms up a bit. Yes, I said warms up. It's been in the 20s and low 30s here for the last week and a half. It's supposed to get a bit warmer and start raining this week though. And scarves are always a must this time of year. I don't know if I go a day without one.

  6. You have the best style - I love this winter look, especially your boots.

  7. So I think I need to plan ahead to be pregnant during the Winter because this is adorable! I always feel so much cuter during the cold months anyway, since I love layering and wearing scarves and boots.

  8. I love your vest! I have one in black that I wish I could wear more than I do here in Florida :)

  9. Living my whole life in Michigan, I can't wait until I get a chance to spend the winters somewhere where it is warm. Sperry duck boots and vests are great all the time.

  10. You look great!

  11. Ha, I agree with your line "the most miserable cold place." Seriously MN, can you warm up a bit? I love your Sperry boots!

  12. Ok I need those sperry's!! They are awesome!! Your winter style in TX is my Fall style here LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  13. You look so darling! I wanted to be pregnant in winter for the built in heater haha! I love the scarf and vest and boots! Okay its all great!

  14. The winter months can often seem to drag on, with gray skies and rain taking over the days. One way to combat the winter blues during one's pregnancy is to find ways to pep up one's maternity wardrobe. There are certain staples to have, such as a great hoodie and fantastically fitting jeans, and specific details, such as gorgeous colors, that are sure to dress up one's winter wardrobe.
