Tips for dressing in Autumn

Comfort is king - This is our number one rule when picking an outfit but especially when you are pregnant. Pick something you can feel comfortable in. In Autumn it is a good idea to choose something that can be layered or which is already thick enough to keep the colder weather away.

Colours - Choose some autumnal colours like brown, tan and orange. Mimicking what nature is doing always looks fabulous in the fall.

Coats - Don't forget you will probably need a coat in this chilly weather. There is no point in picking a lush outfit and then putting it under a terrible coat. Why not treat yourself to a lovely new coat or jacket this Autumn - you definitely deserve it.
