City Pulse

By Samantha Smikle

motherworks.jpg Remember the days when pregnancy meant a death sentence for your wardrobe and eight months in muu-muus. Those days are long gone as A Pea in a Pod, Mimi Maternity and Motherhood Maternity (all under the umbrella of Mother’s Work, Inc.) show us that fashion transcends a pregnant figure.

Mother’s Work Inc. invited City Pulse for a fall preview of what the lines had to offer and we are pleased to report that fall trends were fully incorporated into their line up.

There is a focus on updated ponchos, item jackets and empire waists. For sweaters, an updated poncho achieves the idea of “wrapping yourself in warmth.” It’s a comfortable and convenient alternative to outerwear, but when it is a must, item jackets make a statement without being too fussy. A cropped A-line faux fur trimmed jacket screams fashionista!

An empire waist gives the pregnant woman confidence to sport embellished tops and evening gowns because it accentuates the smallest part of her torso, carving out a new waist.

For the current season, all the lines offer the Patio Dress, a multi-print empire waist maxi dress that’s right on trend for spring and summer.
