Fashion Forward: Maternity Wear
For many women, having a baby doesn't mean you can stop being stylish for nine months. Instead, it's an excuse to buy a new wardrobe. In tonight's Fashion Forward, 7's Shireen Sandoval shows us all the cool clothes for expectant moms to choose from.
WSVN--In the past, maternity clothes have been big and bulky.
But that was then, and this is now.
From Angelina Jolie, to Katie Holmes, to Gwen Stefani, the days of frumpy looking moms-to-be are over.
Now it's all about looking like one hot celebrity mama.
Tara Powlowski: "There is no need to look frumpy. We have a full store of designer maternity that gets you from the beginning to the end and you'll look just as hot as you did before."
It's easy to look like a hip mama at Bellylicious Boutique in Boca Raton.
Here, you can find maternity clothes by top name designers.
From a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress, to this pair of habitual jeans, cut under the belly.
It's no wonder they were favorites of actresses Katie Holmes and Jennifer Garner.
Tara Powlowski: "They're making exactly what they make in their non-maternity collections maternity now. So it has all this extra room."
And room to grow.
Maternity clothes sold here come with adjusters or plenty of elastic.
Check out this AC/DC shirt over jeans.
Or wear a tunic with a trendy pair of leggings.
Tara Powlowski: "Everything's fitted, everything's tight. Leggings are back in style this season, so it's all about showing your curves and showing your belly."
At M&M's Maternity in Southwest Miami-Dade, you could say the stork delivers new styles every day.
They've got everything from formal gowns to bathing suits for the pregnant woman.
Tony Valdes: "We try to keep up the fashion statement and you know get the mother to be able to be comfortable at the same time be fashionable."
You also won't have to sacrifice style while expecting.
Try a T-shirt over a pair of cropped camouflage pants.
Or cheer on your favorite team in a custom cut tube top with shorts.
Tony Valdes: "You have sarongs, you have your shorts, your skirts. It all depends you know there's a little bit of everything here for every expectant mother."
And the best part - you can buy these trendy styles at an affordable price.
Tony Valdes: "This is a nine month period what the mother is going through. So, they don't want to spend tons of money on something that's only going to be worn for nine months."
Moms-to-be, don't forget to pick up stylish accessories too. Everything from diaper bags to wippie cases have gotten trendy makeovers.
