Being pregnant during the cold Winter months presents its own unique set of challenges. Just how long can you make your old favorite coat stretch for without busting a button? If you've got a substantial baby bump on board (or will as the season progresses), a maternity coat is well worth the investment. These eight styles merge form and function, meaning you and your lil one on the way will stay warm and cozy, all the while looking totally pulled together.
Tweed is always in! As soon as temperatures start to drop, coats start coming out of the closet — and the one trend that never seems to skip coat season is tweed. The woolly woven fabric is a Fall favorite among trendsetters, so why not jump aboard the tweed trend this season with a ladylike and sophisticated tweed coat for mama's mini fashionista?
- Simple: This Marled Tweed Coats for Baby ($30) features a wide shawl collar and three oversize button closures — the perfect dress coat alternative for those seeking the sophisticated look of tweed.
- Swank: This sweet Neon Tweed Jacket ($58) is perfect for the holidays! The double-button placket and flapped-welt pockets at front give this wee coat a grown-up look.

Snuggle up! Salma Hayek and Valentina Pinault looked warm and toasty, despite frigid temperatures in Cartagena, Spain today. The duo are on location while mama stars in the Spanish language film, La Chispa de la Vida. The 3-year-old tot bundled up in a trendy fur-trimmed Moncler puffer ($300), but her cold-weather look can be copied on the cheap thanks to end-of-season sales. For mamas who plan ahead, puffy coats like Hanna Anderson's Shiny Puffer Jacket ($45), Circo's Pink Fashion Puffer Jacket ($13), Roxy's Day Owl Puffer Jacket ($40), and Juicy Couture's Fur Trimmed Hood Swing Puffer ($158) all achieve the fur-lined look at a fraction of the designer coat's price.
Maddox and Pax Jolie-Pitt bundled up for the animated Megamind premiere in NYC last night. With much of the Northeast under a cold spell, the globe-trotting tots pulled out their Winter gear before heading into the flick with their dad Brad Pitt. Pax's Appaman pea coat ($95) follows the season's military trend, while Maddox's faux fur coat, similar to this faux sable parka ($70), looks cozy. The pea coat, like this Ralph Lauren version ($195), is an instant classic and can easily be handed down to younger siblings.
I'm in need of a warm (preferably down) maternity coat. I live in Minnesota and will be pregnant all winter. I've searched online without any luck.
