Maternity dresses, but make it fall
And the “best dressed” award goes to… You. In this dress. Our matte sateen fabric is as luxe and silky as ever with this adorable mini maternity dress. The silhouette is one of our new all-time favs. We spruced it up with a plunging v-neck, cinched flirty waist, and tiered mini skirt. Speaking of those gathered waist ties, they’re adjustable so you can cinch up or let out depending on your pregnancy status. If you’re looking for a little romance without too much frill, this dress it is.
Holiday warmth and comfort meets *the cutest* silhouette with this maternity sweater dress. We all know squared-off scoop necks look good on everyone, and we accented this one with a little flare on the sleeves and skirt. All woven together in a holiday-ready sweater knit that’ll make you want a mug of warm cider asap. You just found your go-to dress of the season.
A mock-neck keeps this mini office-appropriate, while the dotted print and silky-sateen fabric makes a statement at any party or event. For a fit that all moms can get behind—pregnant, postpartum, toddler-stage, etc.—there’s a drawcord at the waist, making it easy to cinch in, let out, and customize to your liking. Bring the legs out in this dream of a dress.
Speaking of office-ready, this maternity shirt dress was clearly designed by a werking woman. Not just any woman — a mom. Those poet sleeves, that beautiful drapey silhouette, and all the different ways to wear (buttons all the way down and on the sleeves + an optional sash = endless possibilities). It’s a no-brainer fall wardrobe addition.
The perfect midi maternity dresses
Mini dresses are great and all, but sometimes you want skip the tights and give the bump some breathing room. Enter our favorite maternity midi dresses that are not too long, not too short, ya know *just* right. These styles shine in the fall and winter, and for good reason.
Nothing says fall/winter mama like a soft-rib sweater dress. For this one, the beauty is really in the buttons. Those top two buttons are fully functional, giving nursing access to the moms who want it. The rest of the buttons are fixed so your bump is never exposed, even when it’s in full force. Then, just for funsies, we left the last few bottom buttons functional so you can open them up for some leg action when you’re feelin’ it.
That bump? Iconic. Show it off with a bodycon silhouette, exposed mesh sleeves and the kinda edgy print that will make your little y2k-loving heart skip a beat. This fall-ready maternity dress carries you from season to season (preg or not!) thanks to that super soft + stretchy mesh fabric and liner. You really can't go wrong with this one.
Henley is to winter what linen is to summer. We think it’s an essential for these colder months, which is why we made a long sleeve maternity dress out of it. Bump hugging without being too restrictive, with an on-trend straight silhouette once the bump is gone. The star of the show? Subtle side slits that reveal just enough leg. Keep it classic with navy blue or amp up the fall vibes with our chestnut shade. Either way, you’ll stay warm and comfy until spring rolls around.
OUR FAV MATERNITY DRESS: THE MAXI
No matter the season, maxi maternity dresses steal the spotlight. Long, flowing, *and* functional, they keep your legs warm, and give just enough drama to feel like you’ve arrived. For those special events, we’d choose one of these:
There’s a reason we named this The Dream Dress. I mean, just look at it. It’s practically begging for a chance to be in the pregnancy photoshoot or brought along to the babymoon. The flowy skirt, the puff sleeves, the cotton gauze…. It simply doesn’t get better than this. The golden brown shade can bridge seasons, while the off the shoulder detail lets you flash some collarbone. Another selling point? We edited the amount of fabric so it won’t swallow you whole after babe’s arrival. Don’t let this dress be the one that got away.
Stylish and mom-friendly? Sign us up. You wouldn’t know it by looking at it, but this super feminine dress is also super practical. Four buttons at the neckline made for easy nursing access (#newmomlife), and an empire waistline and elongating tiers provide plenty of space for your bump. Approaching the end of your pregnancy? No problem. This dress looks just as good post-bump. Choose between a subtle butterfly print or a sophisticated java color. Both are flawless, and fit the tone of the season. Pair with a warm beverage if you’re feeling it.
the wrap up
These dresses confirm it: fall is a season for some of the best outfits, and winter presents the chance to play some serious adult dress up. This time of year is filled with plenty of occasions to look forward to, and you deserve to look your best during every single one of them.
