Kate Middleton's Maternity Style -- 7 Items You Can Buy Right Now (PHOTOS)

Lisa Fogarty | Nov 15, 2013 Celebrities

There are so many reasons why being pregnant is wonderful. But shopping for maternity clothing isn't always one of them. Unless you are keen on spending big bucks -- and how many of us are when we know we won't be able to wear these pieces for the rest of our lives -- our options are often limited to horrible fake wool stretch work pants, the same ol' T-shirt with some cute saying about your bump, and leggings, which prove to be the best item of clothing ever invented. 

But we all know one woman who killed it during pregnancy. Kate Middleton. Yeah, I know she has buckets of money and every designer on earth wants to dress her, but the thing is: she really didn't always spend $2 million to look fabulous. We can all look as good as Kate did while preggers. 

While carrying Prince George, the Duchess chose to dress in so many pieces by U.K.-based maternity designer Seraphine that the store achieved an enormous amount of success and was even able to open another boutique in a sought-after section of London thanks to "the Kate effect." Pretty cool for them. 

But the great news for us is that we, too, can snag the amazingly chic yet classy pieces worn by Kate. Granted, we'll have to spend more money than we would at Target, but why not give ourselves the royal treatment for the holidays or our baby shower? 

Here are four great Seraphine looks that Kate made wildly popular -- and three more we can picture her wearing in her second pregnancy.

    Kate is known for her practical style and this navy polka dot wrap dress doesn't disappoint. Bonus: the V-neckline makes it a snap to wear while nursing.

    This dress's clever draping and super deep v-neckline help show off your new curves in all the right places. Kate famously appeared on the cover of People wearing this piece while holding baby George and standing proudly beside Will. The summery color made her eyes pop and her skin glow.

    Like a true fashion icon, when Kate finds a style that suits her, she sticks with it. Considering how gorgeous she looked in Seraphine's Fuchsia Knot Front Dress, it makes sense that she would also purchase one in her signature color -- blue.

  • Navy Lace Maternity Dress

    Pregnant or not, this stunning navy lace cocktail dress is sexy and classy. Considering how many events Kate attends, it's no wonder she would need formal maternity wear in her closet and this empire-waisted piece -- which boasts gorgeously romantic lace sleeves -- may cost a bit more but is worth every penny.

    The perfect dress to match Kate's perfect engagement ring, can you not see her rocking this silky dress to a charity event? Love how it can be worn as a cap sleeve, halter neck, or with a crisscross front -- genius.

  • Blue Wash Straight Leg Jeans

    I predict Kate's going to dress more casually during her second pregnancy. And these jeans, rolled up and worn with pointy toe flats, are going to look super-cute on her.

    Another prediction: Kate is going to make her career more of a priority when she's pregnant again (she'll work in fashion) and will need a great professional piece to take her from day until evening. This fits the bill.
