Top Maternity Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 09

I copied this article from a Fashion Trends Blog - it's a great summary of what's hot for spring/summer 09. Beneath each fashion trend are pictures from clothing available at The Swanky Stork. Our mission is to keep your baby bump looking fabulous and perfectly on trend...you'll see below that we mean it!

Trend 1: Flowy Dresses
Flowy Dresses accent a pregnant body so well. With or without leggings, bold prints or solids, bright hues or simple ebony and ivory. It seems you can't go wrong this spring with a flowy dress. Besides, every pregnant girl needs a gorgeous dress. Go belted to define your new pregnant tummy and add a cardigan or even a vest if it cools off.

Trend 2: Different Necklines
Necklines will give a new look to pregnancy. Be sure to include V-neck cuts and off-the-shoulder styles because they're already starting to be HOT this spring.

Trend 3: Bohemian Style
Bohemain Style is a big hit this spring. The best way to pull this off is to pair a bohemian styled piece with something a bit more conservative. Perhaps a bohemian skirt with a solid colored top.

Trend 4: Color
Color is a huge consideration for pieces this spring. An abundance of nudes offer a neutral palette which is perfect for adding a splash of color. Metallic liquid silver and gold is everywhere. Bright colors should be included such as lemon yellows, neon oranges, chartreuse, fuchsia and bright blues. Muted bright colors such as mint green and coral are also big.

Trend 5: Ruffles and Bows
Ruffles and bows dressed up simple silhouettes in the Spring 2009 Collections. Look for bows at the shoulders or hips and ruffles at hemlines.

Trend 6: Floral Prints
Floral prints are back again. Whether it is large blossoms or tiny flowers, floral prints always look great for spring. It works best to pair this look with a soft tank top or flowy tunic.

Trend 7: Oversized Jewelry
Oversized jewelry is a statement piece that can update any outfit. Huge chunky necklaces and chandelier earrings are a must. However, be careful not to wear anything too heavy.
(We always have a fabulous assortment of jewelry and accessories at The Swanky Stork - watch for a fantastic new jewelry line - under $20 - arriving very soon!)

Now that you've got an idea on what this spring is all about, pick and choose your items with confidence. Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you have to compromise your desire to be up-to-date on all the latest fashions. Be bold, you can have fun with Maternity Clothes too!
