It is that time of year again when we must all start to think about our autumn/winter wardrobe. Chunky knits and knee high boots are at the top of everyone’s wish list right now and what better way to finish this look than with a gorgeous winter coat. There are a wealth of fab maternity coats and jackets out there now, all different budgets and styles depending on the look you want. I have picked out some of my favourites from the likes of Topshop and Isabella Oliver as well a few other designer and high street brands.

Coats are always one of the seasons big investment pieces and usually they do not come cheap, this is why you need to think carefully before you buy. As a pregnant fashionista you will need a cover up that is fashionable yet practical.  You need to make sure your bump is suitably covered to keep out that winter chill and you also need to make sure your coat allows room for growth! Obviously all maternity coats take this into consideration but some do the job better than others, that is why it is worth spending that little bit extra.

If you are lucky enough to be able to afford more that one winter warmer you are not spoilt for choice. You can go for a more casual jacket, perhaps the Isabella Oliver everyday blazer (i wish they had this when i was pregnant i could not find one nice maternity blazer!) and then a more sumptuous over coat, Isabella Oliver’s duffle detail design is gorgeous! As is their pea detail maternity coat. I also love Blossom Mother and Child’s Hampton pleated maternity trench coat, this would look perfect for the office as well as over skinny jeans! One the other or them all, i find it hard to choose!

There are also cheaper alternatives from the likes of Mothercare. I really like their maternity duffle coat, made from wool so will be super warm! Remember too that you do not have to always go maternity. Topshop do some super capes that are perfect for pregnancy! I actually lived in capes, from jumpers to coats, they look so stylish and dress your bump perfectly.

Topshop black waxed cape £75

Finally for those of you that are super stylish and always on the look out for the hottest new style item, i recommend the Clark and Gray 308 maternity coat. This is real innovation in maternity fashion. The 308 comes with removable panels so you can make the coat bigger as your bump grows and then smaller for after birth! You can pick on up from Blossom Mother and Child or find it in my shopping page. Make sure you have a look at all my maternity coat picks before you commit though!
