It has been a long held belief that horizontal stripes should be avoided at all costs when you are pregnant. Side ways strips have always been cursed with a reputation for adding width to your body and increasing the apparent size of your bump, but in actual fact it has come to light that the opposite is actually true.

Breton Maternity Jumper from Jojo Maman BebeIf you are a lover stripes yourself, you will know that well placed stripes will move the eye across the body, not only flattening out your growing bump but also giving you definition to your waist creating a great silhouette for your pregnancy body.

And right now, Jojo Maman Bebe are celebrating the benefit of stripes in their new collection with some fantastic maternity knits that are perfect for making you look good and keeping you up to date with the latest maternity styles.

This Breton Maternity Jumper is the perfect example of how maternity stripes can work for you.

The way that the stripes are focused solely over the tummy area, flattens out your bump and draws your waist in to give you an exceptional look.

The boat neck and solid colour on the top part of the jumper draws the eye upwards and creates a great feature that balances out your entire body shape.

Made in 100% cotton to keep your clothes comfortable and breathable through the entire summer, choose from Red or Navy for a fantastic jumper that is going to see you all the way through your pregnancy and beyond.

Navy Stripe 3-Way Maternity CardiganFor full on stripes, try this 3-Way Maternity Cardigan also from the Jojo Maman Bebe collection which combines the up to date stripy style with the practicality of a cardigan that can be worn pretty much any way you would like to.

The waterfall collar on this maternity cardigan means that you can wear it open to create a great feature to the front of your outfit, framing anything from a casual jeans and t-shirt through to an elegant shift dress.

Use the integrated tie and define your waist for a more traditional look, or you can button up your cardigan for a classic style that looks just as great with maternity jeans and trousers as it does to warm up your summer dress.

Make The Cowl Neck Work For You

This Autumn the Cowl neck seems to be everywhere, in dresses, jumpers, blouses and even in some t-shirts the baggy full neck and long flowing top is a great autumn look for any woman, but when you are pregnant you can really use this look to create something extra special.

Wearing Maternity Jumpers when you are pregnant can be difficult. As your temperature changes so quickly, it can be challenging to find a jumper that is going to keep you warm when you are cold but then isn’t going to overheat you when your temperature rises. But a cowl neck design can help to combat this problem. The low cut and baggy neck opening mean that you can adjust the neck to give you just the right amount of coverage when you need it and can then fully open the neck when you need to breath.

But the cowl neck is not just practical, it also looks gorgeous too and does wonders for the pregnant form. The wide opening at the top exposes more of your skin than a standard high neck jumper and therefore draws attention up your body to your neck area, away from your growing belly.

The fitted nature of the body of the cowl neck design also gives definition to your waist and back and stops you being swamped in your clothes which can make you look and feel bigger than you are.

When choosing your cowl neck designs opt for tops or dresses made of a heavier material that is also going to let your body breath. Again, Jersey or a wool mix will provide a flexible, breathable style that is also going to keep its shape and continue to look great however often you wash it.

With such a sophisticated style around your neck, accessories can be kept to a minimum for day wear, but you can really glam up this style for evening wear with some shiny jewellery and high shoes. Consider wearing your hair up and off your shoulders during your pregnancy to accentuate your slim neckline and to bring more emphasis up your body onto your neck and shoulders giving you a glamorous look for any special occasion.2in1 Cowl Neck Maternity Top from Peacocks

For day wear we love this 2 in 1 Maternity Top. This top cleverly uses the very popular layering style to provide interest to this top without you having to actually wear two layers and over heat.

The deep plunging neck provides style and definition while the fake underlayer makes this overall look casual enough to wear to any daytime event. Complete the look with a great pair of maternity jeans or combat trousers and you have the perfect casual outfit that is going to keep you comfortable but looking fabulous.

Buy this 2in1 Cowl Neck Top from Peacocks this week and you will receive an extra 20% off, for only £12.80 if you place your order before Sunday 16th October 2011.

Cowl Neck Maternity Dress from Crave MaternityOr how about this gorgeous Cowl Neck Dress. As you can see the cowl detail provides interest to the top of this dress allowing the skirt of the dress to fall beautifully over your bump and provide a slimming and elongated line for your pregnancy body.

The hem of the dress falls at a flattering mid thigh to really show off the best of your maternity legs and give you a long lean flattering look with a style that is so on trend right now.

Combine with boots and maternity leggings or maternity support tights and you have a fantastic outfit for night or day that will really flatter your changing shape.

Buy this dress right now and claim free delivery.

However you decide to wear your cowl neck this season choose warm autumnal colours that are going to suit your changing skin tones. Choose deep plunging necklines with the opportunity to wear a camisole underneath if they the line is too low and enjoy the way this style looks so great on the pregnant woman. It is so rare that the most sought after styles work so well with the pregnant shape so lets enjoy it while we can.
