Choosing Maternity Coats
Your maternity coat is probably going to be one of the most costly purchases within your maternity budget, yet is still doesn’t have to cost the art to get the look you want.

A maternity coat is not just about warmth and protection but also says a lot about your style and image. When buying your maternity coat, consider your purchase carefully and make sure you choose a design that projects the style that you want to achieve.
Traditionally maternity coats are cut longer to ensure that the coat continues to cover your bump even at the very end of your pregnancy. Consider using a cushion under your coat when you try it on to ensure you are happy with the length and fit that you will experience throughout your nine months and remember to turn around to ensure that the coat will not only cover your bump but will also come down as far as you want it to in the back too.
The key to choosing a great maternity coat is in the detail. A full coat with no detail is going to swamp your body and make you look bigger than you actually. Choose a coat that is going to fit your style but also show off the very best of your maternity body.
Look out for long tailored styles with beautiful detail on the collar or under the bust to provide symmetry to your shape and lengthen your body. This style provides warmth and sophistication and is equally as suitable for elegant nights out and a quick coffee in the park.
For this seasons most popular style, choose a puffa coat that is soft and comfortable and will keep you warm in even the coldest of English weathers. Choose your pre pregnancy dress size to ensure you get a tailored to fit without the Michelin Man effect which can happen if your puffa is too big. The most popular colour of puffa coat is, of course, black but look out for metallic and brighter colours which will bring your own style to this seasons fashion must have.
Or for a really trendy look, consider the emerging Duffle Coat style which screams youth and trend. With big toggle buttons for added interest and oversized hoods, these coats provide the length of a traditional long coat but tailor it back to a more casual everyday look with patterns and colours that can brighten up even the dullest days.
The maternity jacket is a fabulous accessory which will instantly smarten up any outfit. With sleek tailored lines that mould around your bump, you can wear a good maternity jacket closed for the majority of your pregnancy if you so wish, and then open at the very end.
A maternity jacket will complete any outfit. It is a great way to smarten up any maternity workwear but also looks great with jeans or to compliment a pencil skirt or tailored dress – one jack will give you so many more option in your maternity wardrobe you will wonder what you ever did without it!
When choosing your maternity jacket ensure that you check the length of the jacket to make sure that it is long enough to keep you looking as your bump expands.
Choose mute or grey tones that will match your wardrobe choices and look out for tailoring on the back and sides of the jacket which will define your waistline and provide a smart and sophisticated silhouette from all angles.
