What Maternity Clothes to Wear For Holiday Occasions

     The Holidays are around the corner so it's not too early to begin thinking (but not fretting) about what to wear to that office party or neighbor eggnog party, not to mention family get togethers. Some parties are formal while others are more of a casual pot luck or school function with the kids. In any advent, you will want to look festive and "in the spirit," and of course drop dead gorgeous.

One of the advantages about being pregnant during the holidays is that you have a great amount of fashion leeway, far more than your non-expecting peers. As an expecting woman you can never be too dressed up. So whatever the occasion, especially during the holidays, a dress is always permissible and even admired. There's something about a pregnant women that makes a dress look even more feminine and flattering. Also, dresses are often easier to fit and more comfortable than pants or a skirt as you just need to find one piece of clothing that looks good and fits right. When you get into layers of skirts and blouses you suddenly have more variables in play and more things you have to worry about fitting right to your ever changing body.

Black is always a go-to elegant color to go with that fits every occasion. Black hides any body imperfections we may perceive, is chic and slimming. Olian Maternity's White Trim Maternity Dress is edgy and fashion forward while being easy to wear. It's white trim neckline, pockets and hem and sleeve accents give this dress a classic retro look to Audrey Hepburn. It's also has an excellent hemline length at mid-thigh that gives it a sexy vibe without revealing too much or have you worrying about how high up your dress goes as your belly expands.

If you prefer the cowl neck look in a dress, then check out Olian's Tie Maternity Dress in black. This dress is super glamorous and sexy without trying too hard. The belted tie goes above the belly giving you an empire waist and the draped subtle cowl neck gives a beautiful neckline. The ruched fabric gives a fitted look that hugs your belly tastefully. Pair with black tights and pumps and you are ready for any Holiday Party!

If you want to go for a more festive holiday color, then take a look a Maternal America's Convertible Miracle Dress in royal blue. This is a truly versatile dress in which you have up to four distinctly different styles you can wear this one maternity dress. In one style you can wear it in fitted cap sleeve cami fashion with a twisted front. In another variety you can wear if off one shoulder and in another you can go totally strapless. All looks are stunning and easy to do. The royal blue color is spot on for the holidays and the knee length easy drape of the skirt of the dress flattering for all body types and stages of your pregnancy.
