The Fur Vest Statement

For this trendy look,  I really wanted to go for a fun and bolder style.   As I’m sure you know by now, just because you are expecting doesn’t mean you have to wear ‘mommy jeans’ and baggy, unflattering clothes. Leather pants add a sophisticated edge to a pregnant woman’s outfit.  We’re all about finding ways to help you look spectacular throughout your pregnancy, and leather is one of the hottest trends this season (As previously seen under The leather jacket‘)

A faux fur is a fashion “do” no matter what the occasion (Last seen under ‘Stripes Made Simple’) In fact, you could wear this piece at the office, on the weekend or even as the finishing touch on your most glamorous of looks.  There are lots of fun ways you can wear a fur vest, and it will be the focal point of your outfit so keep the rest of the outfit a little more basic and fitted.  You can wear a fur vest with Leather pants, leggings, a maxi dress, a pencil skirt, a dress, or even shorts.  Since the vest will be drawing most of your outfit’s attention, avoid wearing too many accessories and different patterns so that you don’t overwhelm the look.  My personal favorite look is wearing it under a denim shirt (Last seen under ‘The Shacket’)

This outfit may feel a little outside your comfort zone but it’s easy, comfortable and cozy if you just give it a try.  Show us how you would wear a fur vest if you have one and post your picture on Instagram (Tag @karenzaro #mychicbump).  We can’t wait to see your own personal style on this fabulous trend!

“A mother’s joy begins when new life is
stirring inside…
when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the
very first time,
and a playful kick reminds her that she
is never alone”

Having to bundle up with too many layers of clothing can be uncomfortable and frustrating when you’re pregnant, especially during the cold winter months. So how do you you keep warm while staying chic and comfortable? Sweater dresses of course!

Sweater dresses are one of the most current trends in Winter wear because they not only keep you warm and cozy, but they look stunning as well!

Wearing a sweater dress is comfortable, but just as important, it’s fashionable. And since sweater dresses are already in the closets of women everywhere from before they were pregnant, why not take advantage of the stretchy comfort to complement your pregnant belly? You can find sweater dresses in any number of styles and designs that are made to provide a close but comfortable fit and a terrific look.  The best thing about sweater dresses is that its a way to wear sweaters without looking baggy and frumpy. Instead, a well fitting sweater dress hugs a woman’s curves and highlights her sexiness, always a plus when you may not feel your hottest while trying to dress up your baby bump.

Sweater dresses can be work for most occasions, including more formal looks with a tailored jacket or blazer, or a more casual style when paired with leggings. If you’re feeling adventurous, try wearing it with colored leggings for a casual, but cool look that gives colors from your dress some extra pop.

As far as accessories, try a fun scarf and dangly earrings to look extra put together for your date with your hubby. Your shoes will depend on the occasion but this outfit is flexible enough to work with a ballet flat (casual) or a pair of heels or pumps (formal/sexy) when you’re at work or out on the town. Boots can also give your outfit a chic touch just make sure they’re the right length so you elongate your legs as much as possible to look longer and leaner!

Wishing all of my ladies out there an amazing International Women’s Day today. Feel inspired!
