Wrap Up The Maternity Knitwear Trend For YouWritten by simplymaternity on Thursday 22nd of September 2011
As the Autumn days settle in and the temperature starts to cool, maternity knitwear has to go straight to the top of the shopping list for all mums-to-be to keep us warm and comfortable during your pregnancy but also looking great.
This season, whether you are pregnant or not, the knitwear trend is definitely chunky. Cable knits and long sleeves are being seen everywhere with statement ties and oversized collars giving this season’s finishing touches. And this is one trend that the Maternity market has taken on in spades.
The high wool content and the chunky style create the soft cuddly textures that so many women crave during their pregnancy. The breathable nature of the knit means you are not going to get over heated and with the chunky styles being designed to be worn both open and closed, you can easily find designs that are going to keep you looking great and feeling comfortable throughout the Autumn and into Winter.
And the best part of these chunky designs, is that they are great to wear after the baby is born too. During the cold winter months at the beginning of next year, these woollens are great to quickly put on in the morning to keep you looking great and hiding those extra pounds that we all find we have after the birth.
When you are choosing your knitwear, go for knit that is going to suit your style and opt for oversized details that will focus the eye exactly where you want. If you are looking to move the eye away from your bump go for oversized collars that are going to draw attention away from your middle and balance out your body shape. But if you want to celebrate your growing belly, use above the belly ties to accentuate your shape and show off your baby to be.
This Grey Cable Knit Cardigan from Crave Maternity has a gorgeous over sized collar to keep you wrapped up and snugly this winter while the longer length and cable knit style mean it can also be worn open for a stylish add-on when you just want to keep the chill at bay.
The deep autumnal tone used in this knit will go with practically every colour you are going to want to wear this season and will look equally great with a skirt and long boots or with jeans and trainers.
Fitted to the waist, this cardigan is ideal if you want to show off your figure during your pregnancy while the low button neckline ensures that all eyes go up when you wear this cardigan buttoned.
