Oh how I enjoy window shopping–whether it be on Spring Street or on Internet Explorer, on Robertson Boulevard or on Firefox. And if you’ve got it, well girlfriend, go ahead and flaunt it. But like most of the mamas I know, I need to be practical when actually pulling out the plastic. So, here are five fun denim picks for the mama to be–all under $100 (and all but one under $50)!
|Liz Lange for Target Fashion Denim Pants ($29.99 at Target): That’s right, honey, I said Tar-jay.I love these real waist, hidden elastic jeans because you don’t have to worry about bands showing or slipping.These jeans are super comfy and even work during that awkward postpartum period when nothing seems to fit right.
Another great real-waist option is these drawstring Maternity Real Waist Chambray Pants ($25 at Old Navy)…why can’t all my pants have drawstrings?
|Secret Fit Belly styles from Motherhood Maternity ($19.98-$44.98 at Motherhood Maternity): Secret Fit Jeans put full panel maternity jeans to shame.If you are tired of mid-belly panels that cut into your stomach, fall down, and create awkward “panel lines,” you’ll love the new secret fit panel that comes all the way up above your belly to just below your chest.
Maternity Roll-Panel Pinstripe Trouser Jeans ($36.50 at Old Navy): Dress up your denim with these pinstripes. For a fancier sort of jean, these jeans will take you from a stroll in the park to shaking your baby mama booty–just don’t shake too hard and fall over.
|Signature by Levi Strauss & Co ($25 at Walmart Women’s Apparel): I am generally not a fan of the demi panel jean, but the Signature collection actually manages to stay put and offer a lot of support, even after several washings. And the denim itself looks great–like you paid much more for your jeans.|
GapMaternity: Full panel fabulous jeans ($68 at The Gap): The priciest pick on our list but one of our editor’s favorite maternity denim choices. After trying dozens of maternity jeans, these are the only ones that went the full term for her, providing plenty of support without falling down. Because when you are 38 weeks pregnant, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your pants.
