Are you pregnant and looking for something gorgeous and elegant to wear. One of our favorites is Seraphine (Kate Middleton is also a fan!) where you can find modern and on-trend dresses, pants and more to help you feel comfortable and fabulous during all stages of your pregnancy and post-pregnancy.
They recently opened their first U.S. store in the heart of SoHo in NYC where Broadway star and new mom Megan Hilty was in attendance. With 1,700 square feet dedicated to fashionable maternity wear, Megan dazzled in the Seraphine Luxe Plum Lace Maternity Cocktail Dress ($259) while posing with the brand's founder, Cecile Reinaud.
As a nursing mama I have been loving the chic and warm Nautical Knitted Maternity & Nursing Tunic with the awesome Breton stripes that appeals to my sense of style while also offering the practical buttons on the side for easy nursing. Other favorites include the Polka Dot Mock Wrap Maternity Dress (worn by Kate Middleton) and the stunning Berry Colour Block Nursing Dress that would complete any look this holiday season.
To learn more about what to wear when you are nursing, I chatted with Cecile Reinaud, Seraphine's founder and designer, who shared her insight about the perfect nursing styles and what to wear this winter.
Momtrends: What are some of the best styles to wear when nursing?
Cecile Reinaud:These days, the mark of really good nursing clothes is that nobody realizes they’re for nursing! All of our nursing tops and dresses are made with a fashion focus in mind, incorporating discrete opening systems into the design. Wrap dresses are set to be a big trend next year, which is great news for nursing moms. And for winter, our stylish and practical nursing shawl is a must have for discreet feeding.
Momtrends: What are some shopping tips for women when they are nursing?
Cecile Reinaud: I always suggest shopping for nursing clothes before the baby arrives. Most of our nursing styles are transitional, so you can wear them right through pregnancy and into the nursing stage, which saves a lot of time and energy once baby is born.
Momtrends: What are some of your favorite maternity styles for winter?
Cecile Reinaud: Personally I love our Black Knitted Cape – it’s very on trend at the moment. But honestly our coat collection is very strong this season, and perfect for keeping mom and bump warm and stylish through the colder months!
Momtrends: What are some tips for women on how to dress their bump during the holidays?
Cecile Reinaud: The main thing I would say is, don't be afraid to flaunt your bump! Our LUXE dresses are made in the finest silks and lace and designed to flatter your changing figure – they’re perfect for the festive winter parties.
Momtrends: What are some of your favorite accessories for pregnancy?
Cecile Reinaud: A fabulous belt can work wonders to lift your look during pregnancy. Position it just under your bust to define your empire waistline and flatter your figure. I also love a fashionable scarf – the perfect way to add a pop of color or pattern to your outfit.
