Over the last few days, the fashion world have been frothing at the bit about Gwen Stefani’s (apparent) third pregnancy. And, seriously, who can blame them? Gwen Stefani is someone to be admired as far as maternity wear goes. As a woman with clear talents for music and design, she hasn’t failed to raise the fashion stakes during her pregnancies yet.
So, what can the world come to expect from Gwen Stefani during this pregnancy? Over the weekend, she attended Nicole Richie’s son’s birthday party, wearing a checked jumpsuit. Naturally, those newspapers reporting on her attire have been fast to claim that she is hiding a bump. As though Gwen Stefani has never, in her life, worn something baggy before.
Anyway, enough of the media-reporting-bashing. Let’s get down to fashion business. It is quite clear that we can expect a lot of cool and quirky outfits. One of the more frustrating aspects of this pregnancy’s timing—at least for those in Britain—is that we are now heading into the winter. Naturally, maternity wear becomes slightly more conservative when the rain and snow starts to fall. Thanks for that, geography.
|Aztec Dress-New Look-£17.99|
Still, that hasn’t stopped good old New Look maternity from keeping a great bodycon Aztec dress on their shelves. Available in sizes 8 to 18, this is a great way to envelop that bump in something a little crazy. Even when the weather gets colder, you can team it with your favourite maternity shirt or save it for an evening out. If you’re lucky, you can escape somewhere warm for the winter and wear it as the designers intended—with pride and your arms out.
|Missoni Dress Hire-Girl Meets Dress-From £39|
Want to enjoy the designers just as Gwen does? Then head over to Girl Meets Dress and hire this Missoni number from £39. With a combination of fuschia, light pink, and green stripes, this empire line dress will flatter any pregnancy figure. For those of you who are sighing at the idea of keeping the dress on over those engorging breasts, fear not.

What is a quirky maternity wardrobe without funky coloured trousers? Not quirky at all—at least not in our opinion. Thanks to Vertbaudet, you can add a staple pair of maternity trousers in red to your collection. At such a fantastic price, you do not have to worry about breaking the bank. These will look great with heels—if you are feeling brave—in the evening. Additionally, they are fabulous with flats during the day.
