15 Stylish Maternity Winter Jackets That’ll Keep You Cozy
Maternity jeans, ruched T-shirts, leggings and a little black dress are among the standard maternity wardrobe staples you’ve probably already stocked up on. But if you have a winter pregnancy, you’re also going to need a warm maternity coat to get you and your baby bump through the long season. As your regular jackets get a little too snug and the zippers seem out of reach, treat yourself to a maternity winter coat that’ll keep you toasty without sacrificing on style.
There are a few things to consider when it comes to deciding whether you’ll need a maternity winter coat. First off, your local weather: How cold does it get in your area, and will you actually need something warmer in your maternity wardrobe? If you’re expecting frigid temps, you might need a super-warm puffer, but if winters are mild in your neck of the woods, consider a lightweight maternity coat like a denim or utility jacket to keep the brisk breezes at bay. Don’t forget to try on what’s already in your closet—you might just discover that an oversized coat or one with side zippers will still accommodate your baby bump, especially if you’ll be in your second trimester during the cold months. But if not, a maternity winter jacket is truly a smart investment–you really don’t want to be cold all season long. Hesitant to spend the money? Good news: There’s such a thing as 3-in-1 maternity coats and jackets, which can be used during pregnancy, to cover baby when you’re wearing them in a baby carrier and even as a regular jacket—talk about bang for your buck!
