The 14 Best Maternity Winter Coats to Rock This Season
Congratulations on being pregnant...and on needing a whole new wardrobe. Yes, motherhood will keep you on your toes, and the fun starts before the bun in your oven is even fully baked. On that note, let’s talk about that beloved winter coat you splurged on last year, but can no longer zip over your midsection. Better yet, let’s not. Instead, check out our list of the best maternity winter coats and find yourself a new (and legitimately stylish) cold-weather workhorse—because you know the temperatures are going to drop before that baby does.
1. Seraphine 3 in 1 Winter Maternity Parka
You’ll be cozy and warm all winter in this stylish hooded parka from celeb-approved maternity brand Seraphine (it’s a Kate Middleton favorite, NBD), which features a waterproof exterior, generous pockets and an adjustable drawstring waist to ensure you don’t look like a shapeless blob. In fact, the detachable kangaroo panel means that this number will flatter your figure throughout every stage of pregnancy, from barely showing to about to pop, and even when you’ve graduated from baby growing to babywearing. In other words, you’ll get plenty of bang for your buck with this one.
2. Momo Maternity Cinch Waist Down Parka
This parka boasts a luxurious 80 percent down filling and water-resistant shell with detachable hood and storm flap to keep you warm and dry in any weather. Plus, the adjustable empire waist will prevent you from looking like a sack of potatoes, both during and after pregnancy. Oh, and it’s machine-washable, too—but that’s just icing on the cake. Let’s just say this puppy wins serious points for both form and function.
3. Modern Eternity Convertible Down 3-in-1 Maternity Jacket
The price tag of this parka is a bit steep, but it’s a worthy investment if you can swing it. For starters, you won’t have to retire this one with the rest of your maternity wardrobe once the baby is born, since the front extender panel is both adjustable and removable. Yep, you can customize the fit to accommodate your growing bump, and then transform the coat into a regular piece of outerwear when you’re no longer carrying a bowling bowl in your belly. Plus, said panel can also be used with a baby carrier, and will afford you some privacy if you have to nurse your newborn while you’re out and about. Finally, the down and feather filling of this coat is mighty warm and, despite what the ticket price suggests, you can even skip the dry cleaners and opt for the washing machine when it gets scuzzy.
4. Kimi and Kai Paisley Wool Blend Duffle Coat
If you’re not in the market for something feather-filled and fluffy, we suggest you try this sharp-looking duffle coat on for size. The A-line silhouette of this wool blend coat will flatter your figure in the first trimester, while leaving plenty of room for a growing baby bump. Also, the design details (think: toggle closure and generous detachable hood) are très chic, so you certainly don’t need to worry about looking frumpy during the frigid months. Note: The consensus is that this style runs large...but having to size down during pregnancy isn’t exactly a bummer, is it?
5. Modern Eternity 3-in-1 Wool Blend Coat
The sleek silhouette and dramatic stand collar on this wool blend beauty will make you look long and lean when you’re feeling anything but, and the full-length, nursing-friendly extender panel will serve you well throughout pregnancy and after, too. Bonus: This coat also gives you the option of removing the panel entirely, which means you can continue to rock this timeless look for, um, all of eternity (i.e., even when the postpartum period is in the rearview).
6. Wednesday’s Girl Maternity Longline Coat
This cream-colored, patterned coat has a retro vibe we can’t resist—and the snuggly-soft felt it’s made of isn’t so bad either. (In fact, the material is downright dreamy, provided you live somewhere with relatively mild winters.) A generous spread collar and multiple pockets (chest and side slit) are among the other noteworthy features on this chic piece of outerwear. A solid, affordable and refreshingly stylish choice.
7. Orolay Thickened Down Jacket
Recognize this one? Well, that’s probably because this Orolay parka, popularly referred to as ‘the Amazon coat,’ has been a bestselling, internet sensation since 2018. This darling of the outerwear scene isn’t specifically a maternity coat, but the too-cool-for-school, oversized style leaves ample room for a baby bump and is 100 percent pregnancy-approved. Plus, it also features a fleece-lined hood, wind and waterproof exterior, and generous duck down filling—so basically, you and your unborn will be swaddled in a cocoon of coziness if you spring for this one.
8. Woman Within Plus Size Fleece Funnel Neck Swing Coat
Excellent for plus-size and maternity needs alike, this roomy swing coat is feminine, soft to the touch and oh-so stylish. (We’re suckers for the funnel neck). There’s nothing too fancy happening here—just cozy fleece, a form-flattering shape, and deep pockets to keep your paws warm. That said, this option will get the job done this winter—and at a pretty unbeatable price to boot.
9. Modern Eternity Cocoon Puffer Coat
The 3-in-1 design of the maternity panel on this polyester-filled puffer covers all the bases—including that awkward phase when your bump isn’t big enough for full-blown maternity wear but looks like serious bloat in regular clothes. (We know you know what we’re talking about.) Yep, this beauty will have you looking fabulous and feeling warm before, during and even after pregnancy, since it’s nursing and babywearing-friendly. The only catch? This coat is dry clean only—so, um, try to steer clear of spit up if you can.
10. Kimi and Kai Tessa Colorblock Wool Blend Maternity Coat
Here, a cozy wool blend coat with a trendy mod aesthetic and an accommodating silhouette. There are also quite a few winning details on this one—namely, deep slant pockets to warm your hands all winter, plus an oversized (detachable) hood and stand collar combo that promises to protect you from the elements. This one is the perfect compromise between fashion and, well, something that actually fits.
11. HATCH The Coco Coat
High fashion meets the Snuggie in this deliciously cozy teddy bear coat, which is made from mid-weight Sherpa material and features a generous hood and snap placket front. The design will work with even the biggest of baby bumps, and we’re big fans of the casual, but cool and oh-so comfortable style. That said, this one wouldn’t be our first choice for, say, a blizzard—so maybe just file it under “winter on the West coast.”
12. Ingrid & Isabel Grow With You Maternity Puffer Jacket
If you’ve seen one maternity coat with an extender panel, you’ve seen ‘em all. Here’s something a little unique—a puffer jacket that accomplishes the same goal, but with side zippers. (Because why not?) Yep, you can simply unzip the sides of this quilted, polyester puffer to give your growing baby bump a bit more breathing room. Plus, the shorter length of this winter warmer is totally trending right now.
13. Tiffany Rose Maternity Verity Collarless Boucle Coat
Channel style icon Jackie O by slipping on this classy boucle coat before you hit the holiday party circuit. You can dress this knee-length number up or down, depending on the occasion—a good thing given the price tag—and the tailored fit is a far cry from the maternity marshmallow look we all fear. The only downside is that extended time outside in freezing temperatures is likely not in the cards if you make this your go-to outerwear garment.
14. ASOS Slouchy Belted Coat
This mushroom-colored, full-length coat is just right for everyday wear, with a slouchy, relaxed fit that’s downright cool. The soft, thick polyester material, fixed hood and oversized design will keep you and your bump warm all winter, while the waist belt ensures you never lose your shape. The takeaway? If you’re looking for a flattering and versatile maternity coat that won’t break the bank, this one’s a winner.
