How To Dress Your Blossoming Bump For Autumn And Beyond

For chic AW21 maternity fashion that flatters and grows with your bump, look no further than London-based brand Isabella Oliver. Their beautiful range of sustainable maternity wear makes dressing your bump effortless and easy, whatever month of the year. We take a look at their latest collection of maternity clothes, perfect for autumn into winter.

Second Hand September in collaboration with Oxfam

Isabella Oliver has partnered with Oxfam to launch a campaign called ‘Second Hand September’, aimed to encourage a less wasteful approach to fashion by shopping second-hand and donating pre-loved items. Customers can donate items they no longer wear to either Baukjen or maternity wear brand Isabella Oliver to be re-loved, repurposed or recycled. 50% of the net proceeds from sales of both brands will be donated to Oxfam to support its vital work to beat poverty worldwide. What’s more, for every clothing donation received, the slow fashion brand will also plant a tree from Eden Reforestation Projects on behalf of their customers.

The must-have dress

Isabella Oliver are known for their gorgeously flattering fail-safe dresses, and this season is certainly no exception. If you have to pick one, we recommend opting for a full-shirt buttoning dress. Loose fitting with a self-tie to accentuate your bump, this dress will be perfect for nursing once your baby arrives.

Felicity Maternity Dress

The Felicity V-neck crepe dress with delicate gathering detail into the shoulders and cuffs will make a gorgeous addition to your AW maternity wardrobe.

With flattering seam detailing under the bust, this printed shirt dress is designed to accommodate your growing bump. Pair with trainers or sandals or boots for colder days.

Kelsy Maternity Dress with Tencel™

Isabella Oliver’s Kelsy Maternity Dress has to be our favourite pick.

It’s soft and comfortable and works throughout pregnancy and beyond. A maternity shirt dress that ties easily above your bump to flatter your pregnancy curves. It’s brilliant for dresing up or down whatever the occasion.

Maryse Maternity Dress

Crafted in lightweight crepe and digitally printed with an updated 70’s style vintage paisley pattern, this flattering shirt dress is cut to suit bumps of all sizes.

With full shirt buttoning, self-tie and a slight volume in the godet hem, you’ll be reaching for this dress throughout the duration of your pregnancy.

Left: Super Stretch Skinny Jeans, Right: Over The Bump Boyfriend Jeans

Pregnancy jeans and leggings are a must for any maternity wardrobe. Invest wisely, and they’ll fit exactly the same as regular styles but with the support you’ll need to stay comfortable as your body grows.

We recommend:

Over The Bump Maternity Boyfriend Jean

The most coveted maternity denim in a reinvented design complete with over the bump jersey band for the ultimate comfy fit. Created in quality stretch denim, you’ll want to live in these popular Boyfriend jeans for the next few months!

Super Stretch Maternity Skinny Jean

Skinny jeans are still a staple part of any woman’s wardrobe, and pregnancy should be no exception. These super stretch maternity skinny jeans by Isabella Oliver are soft, stretchy, and designed with an over the bump elasticated panel that will see you through pregnancy.

What we love about skinny jeans is they’re super-easy to dress up or down to suit the occasion. You can’t go wrong with denim.

Another perfect choice for dressing up or down, whatever your day holds. There’s also a built-in shelf bra for comfort and support.

Grayson Maternity Dress with LENZING™ ECOVERO™

The Grayson maternity dress is perfect for winter layering.

Maternity essentials for everyday wear

Layering can look fabulous during autumn and winter, especially during pregnancy. The key to layering is investing in pieces that you can build your wardrobe around.
