Pregnant and feeling like fashion is totally against you? With baby #2 on board I’m right there with you. So when we heard here at Sassy Mama that our friends at Sono Vaso were working with HK stylist extraordinaire, fashion blogger and former Sassy “That Girl” Jasmine Webster we figured we’d take the opportunity to pick her brain about what to wear when expecting, how to ‘dress the bump’ while staying on trend, and her top picks from Sono Vaso’s Fall/Winter ’12-13 collection. (And be sure to read on for not only a sweet Sassy Mama discount, but also a chance to win a $2000 shopping voucher!)
Sono Vaso (which, by the way, is Italian for “I am a Vessel”) is a hands-down go-to when it comes to maternity fashion. From the early days of my first pregnancy, I’ve been a fan of their very aptly named “Essenziale” line of must-haves – including the perfect maternity tank top and leggings – as well as their classic tunics, smart wrap dresses, pants… the list goes on. Their fabric is seriously comfy and soft and took me all the way through my pregnancy – and actually post-baby as well when stretchy fabric and a forgiving silhouette are exactly what you need and want!
With the cooler weather now upon us, their new Fall/Winter line is a welcome sight with its range of perfect sweater dresses and cosy elongated wrap cardigans, as well as their new line of maternity JEANS (yeah!) which features some pretty rocking “mechanical stretch” denim and is offered in all the key styles including the skinny leg, and a sweet micro mini that would look pretty darn hot with boots and a sweater.
But don’t just take my word for it! Here’s what super stylist Jasmine has to say about her top picks:
Viola: I adore the waist tie on this snuggly draped cardi! It allows for curve definition whether tied at your back or in front across your bump.
Luisa: A true merge of fashion and function with discreet access for nursing, plus a flattering jersey tie front.
Sabrina: Incredibly easy to wear, this skirt streamlines your shape! A sartorial must for any wardrobe.
Luciana: Thanks to new mechanical stretch denim, these jeans are a girl-on-the-go must have! Fitted in all the right places with a great skinny leg.
Gea: Superbly fitted, this asymmetric top is the ideal mix of comfort ruching and bump defining with its belt. The off-centre neckline is a fab twist on the expected.
Amalfi: The perfect LBD. The twist front flatters every body type and molds over your bump… the only other thing you need is an excuse to go out now!!
