7 Maternity Coats You Can Wear Now and Past Your Pregnancy
Lucky you. The way your pregnancy timing works out, you get to skip out on the oppressive heat and humidity of summer. On the flip side, that means you have to set aside money in your baby budget for a slightly annoying investment: a maternity coat. Here, a selection of chic options that will not only keep you warm, but they’ll transition between trimesters…and beyond.
A Maternity Cape
You can hide your bump—or your baby—under there and no one will be the wiser.
Kimi and Kai ($228)
A Belted Robe Coat
No zipper means you can cinch (or let out) the waist as much as you want. Bonus: There are discreet snaps for when temps really start to dip.
An Expanding and Retracting Puffer
This convertible coat comes with a middle piece that can be zipped in to accommodate your growing belly. Then, flip it over and it fits baby. Once you’re back to your pre-pregnancy size, simply remove the middle piece and zip ’er up.
Motherhood Maternity ($140)
A Boxy Overcoat
Come on, you’d wear this boyfriend style pregnant or not. But even with trendy numbers, you need features made just for mamas. Like the asymmetrical opening, which makes the coat form-fitting (and figure-flattering) around your bump.
JoJo Maman BéBé ($145)
A Cocoon Coat
Just like the boxy overcoat, this doesn’t even look like maternity wear, but—surprise—it is and it comes with bucket pockets to boot.
Hatch Collection ($398)
A Wool Car Coat
The chic color, the adjustable belt, the snaps—all are features that make for maternity comfort and post-maternity style.
An Evening Coat
Being pregnant in the winter means holiday parties galore. Treat yo’self to an empire-waist style, then re-wear it next year with a swingy skirt.
