Mastering Maternity Style with CAbi

October 2, 2014

Maternity clothes have come a long way, baby! Your body goes through so many changes during pregnancy, but one thing that doesn’t have to change is your fabulous style. CAbi makes fashion fun. Even your favorite “regular” clothes can give you the perfect maternity style and take you all the way through those nine (technically ten!) months. And the great news is you can continue to wear these incredible pieces even after you bring your precious bundle of joy home!

Our model is our very own Caralyn from CAbi’s Events Team. She’s a few months away from welcoming her baby into the world and has enjoyed being able to transition her current CAbi wardrobe into pseudo-maternity wear. No need to break the bank on an entirely new wardrobe, just modify what you already have and you’ll maintain your killer fashion sense.

Are you pregnant or know someone who is? Read on for great style inspiration on how to wear your favorite CAbi pieces and show off fabulous maternity style during these months. Scroll down and discover how some of our fall pieces can transition into your pregnancy wardrobe, whether it’s a casual day of errands or a much deserved night out with your hubby.

The four outfits below are ideal for a couple’s night out. Caralyn is wearing the Date Night Top, which has an adjustable satin tie that’s perfect for an expanding waistline. Wear it with your maternity jeans or you can wear any CAbi denim with a belly band. If you want to add some color to your look and highlight your belly, the Lucky Pullover is a great color to enhance your gorgeous glow. A sharp look for a special dinner!


Feeling adventurous? Swap the pants or the maxi dress with our Femme Skirt paired with our stylish Appliqué Cardigan. Add a statement necklace for an elegant finishing touch. And the CAbi LBD is a great staple that can be glammed up for a wedding or even your baby shower!

You can mix and match patterns with the Business Tee and Estate Jacket for a look that is mommy chic and makes you feel fresh and vibrant for a girls-only lunch.
