Maternity style trends in Hollywood are easier to spot these days, with so many hot mamas getting pregnant.

Overall, there has been a move away from showing your bare belly, but clothes certainly do still show the belly off with fitted tops and sexy styles.

Jeans continue to be a big trend, with designer denim like Citizens of Humanity selling well. Pregnant stars are pairing jeans with the hottest trend right now, which is novelty tank tops and tees. These tops are printed on the front with fun sayings and prints such as "Due In January," from Samson Martin, printed with monthly due dates and "What's Kickin" and "Pickles and Ice Cream" from 2chix. Fun printed tank tops with graphics such as a bun in an oven have also been big hits. The good news is that many of the tanks and tees that have been popular in Hollywood continue this fall with long sleeves and thermal fabrics.

Another trend is longer length tops, which are also called tunics. These tops are often embellished, and the longer length is flattering and cool. They are a bit roomier, but still sexy and form flattering. Maternal America designed a fabulous chiffon tunic this fall. It is sheer chocolate with silver beading and embellishment and looks great over a camisole.

The good news is that a mom-to-be outside of Hollywood can look as good as a celebrity with so many new styles from which to choose!PregnancyAndBaby.com
