Party-Ready Maternity Looks for Every Stage of Pregnancy


Target

Life is a celebration, especially when you’re pregnant. Whether it’s for a baby shower, wedding, holiday party, or just a fancy afternoon tea party with your besties, it’s fun to find reasons to dress up and look your best.

Even if you’re a loungewear lady most of the time (and trust me, I’m right there with you), Target has a huge selection of maternity fashions that on trend but still super comfortable, with stretchy fabrics and easy to wear silhouettes. You’ll look cute, but more importantly, you’ll feel like a million bucks.

Plus, many pieces in the Isabel Maternity™ line from Ingrid & Isabel can also work post-pregnancy. Their innovative styles of maternity pants include the Crossover Panel, a foldover style that stretches around or under your belly and then crosses over at the small of your back to provide support, and the Inset Panel, which provides elastic-waistband comfort with a regular zip fly—perfect for your growing belly and your “fourth trimester” too. Here are some looks to get you inspired.

For a casual get-together


Target

The Ingrid & Isabel® Maternity Long Sleeve Blouse has a lovely deep purple color, and feminine poet sleeves with a sheer panel that starts right above the elbow. Plus, it doesn’t have side-shirring or any other telltale signs of maternity clothing, so after the baby comes, it’ll just be another flowy, draped blouse. You can style it more casually with jeans or leggings, or dress up with tuxedo trousers or a pencil skirt.


Target

Any flowing blouse or tailored tunic looks great with leggings, which is great news since leggings are the ultimate in comfort. The Maternity Seamless Belly Leggings from Ingrid & Isabel provide 360-degree stretch to last through every trimester, and have no seams or itchy tags. You can wear the panel all the way up over belly, or folded over to rest under your bump—which makes these a versatile choice for post-pregnancy wear too.

For a baby shower


Target

Florals are always appropriate for a baby shower, and Isabel Maternity has you covered—with blossoms! The Maternity Floral Print Short Sleeve Top has a bold print and a relaxed fit that pairs well with the Maternity Crossover Panel Bootcut Trouser or a comfy skirt—or you can dress it down with leggings or the oh-so-comfortable Crossover Panel Skinny Jeans. You’ll get tons of mileage out of this one.


Target

The ultra-feminine Maternity Flutter Sleeve Top by Isabel Maternity is a great baby shower pick too, and the bold ruby pink color reminds us of a tulip or a rose.

For a daytime wedding


Target

A long dress will keep you comfortable and looking great from the ceremony through the reception. Isabel Maternity’s Floral Print Wrap Maxi Dress has a flattering empire waist, and the colorful flowers and fluttery sleeves make it feminine and romantic.


Target

If the wedding is outdoors, this dress works great with wedges, flats, or sandals to make it easier to walk on grass. If it’s going to get chilly, wrap up in the luxurious Ruana from A New Day™.

For a work function or office party

If you’re heading to dinner with a client, a coworker’s retirement party, or that company holiday party that seems to happen earlier every year, Target has lots of work-appropriate looks that are polished and professional.


Target

The Maternity 3/4 Sleeve Pleated Dress by Ingrid & Isabel, for example, comes in four colors, so you can find one that goes with a blazer, cardigan, or scarf you already own. It’s stretchy for comfort, but still looks dressy thanks to pleats along the side that will accommodate your belly as it grows. It looks great with heels, boots, or flats, and the scoop neckline flatters long necklaces as well as shorter ones. You’ll love how versatile this one dress can be.

For a date night dinner


Target

The easy-to-wear Maternity Bell Sleeve Floral Print Dress by Isabel Maternity for Ingrid & Isabel is versatile enough to wear to work and then out to dinner too. It looks great with heels, flats, or tights and boots. Try the ultra-comfy, high-panel Opaque Tights by Isabel Maternity.


Target

For a dressier look, flaunt that belly in a little black dress! The Maternity Pleated Tank Dress by Ingrid & Isabel would look great with sparkly shoes and a statement necklace. The soft, stretchy fabric has bodycon style to hug your curves.


Target

If your dinner dates are more casual, reach for the cozy Draped Front Long Sleeve Top, which adds a touch of style with the crossover draping on the front. It’s the perfect complement to your favorite jeans or leggings.

For a can't-miss concert


Target

Yes, it’s true, pregnancy does make you tired. But a night out grooving to great tunes with your spouse or your friends can be an energizing experience—just bring back the “disco nap” first! If you’re headed to a rock show, Ingrid & Isabel’s Maternity Inset Panel Utility Jegging has zipper details and moto-inspired panels that look great with boots or even sneakers. The innovative elastic panels inset on each side of the functional zipper fly keep the below-belly waistband fitting you perfectly through your whole pregnancy and beyond.


Target

On the top, you can keep things fun and flirty with the Maternity Cold Shoulder Ruffle Sweatshirt, which has trendy open shoulders accented by a feminine ruffle. It’s light and breezy, and long enough to keep your belly covered even when you throw your hands in the air. And with no ruching or other clues that it’s a maternity item, you’ll want to keep wearing it post-pregnancy too.

For an evening wedding or gala


Target

A little black dress will never steer you wrong, and Isabel Maternity's Cold Shoulder Ruffle Dress is no exception. The feminine ruffle around the shoulders, and the burnout detail on the front will draw the eye up to your glowing face. It drapes elegantly over your belly, with no pleats or shirring, which makes it versatile enough for after the baby comes too. We also love the lace sleeves on the Maternity 3/4 Sleeve Sash Belt Lace Dress from MaCherie.


Target

Pair either of these dresses with sparkly earrings, a bold lip, and your favorite high heels. The Estee & Lilly Women’s Faux Fur Caplet with Satin Lining adds a beautiful finishing touch, and it’s available in five rich colors.
