Sassy For Spring

Since maternity clothes are a temporary wardrobe investment, it's worth it to incorporate a few trendy items to still stay in touch with your inner fashionista. Here are 5 spring trends to try.

Pretty Pastels

With an expanding belly it’s easy to gravitate towards the darker colors in your closet as your body changes, but it’s time to banish the wardrobe blahs by incorporating one of spring’s hottest hues. Pastels are the perfect transition to go from early spring to late summer so you can get the most of your warm-weather maternity wardrobe.

We like this option because it combines several shades of our favorite spring shades -- coral, purple and mint -- with black graphics to keep it from being overly sweet. Donna Morgan tie maternity dress, A Pea in the Pod Maternity, $150

Feminine florals

Nothing says spring like a little bit of flower power. Floral prints are trending big this spring and can be found on everything from pants, dresses, shirts, and accessories. If you're feeling self conscious about how a pattern looks on your growing bump (and rump), try a larger scale floral pattern or incorporate a pretty print in a small accessory.

This pair of pants can be dressed up with heals and chunky jewelry or worn with a plain t-shirt and sandals for a casual warm-weather look. Secret Fit Belly Skinny Maternity Jeans, Motherhood Maternity, $45

Maternity pants with floral printLovely Lace

For some women, feeling sexy is the last thing on the brain during the throws of pregnancy, but you can still give your outfits a little feminine touch (and perhaps a touch of sex appeal) with a bit of lace.

This fluid knee-length lace dress can take you from date night to your bridal shower. Throw a jacket over it to make it work-appropriate. ASOS Maternity Lace Skater Dress, ASOS, $47

It's easy being green

Green hues always seem to make a bit of a comeback during spring and summer as people are anxious to get outdoors and enjoy the gorgeous weather. This year is particularly big for green since Emerald was named the 2013 Color of the Year by global color authority Pantone.

We're crushing on this pale emerald maxi dress with ruffle details -- perfect for a casual brunch or stylish comfy weekend wear. Merona Maxi Ruffled Dress, Target, $18

Seeing Stripes

Stripes are particularly big for Spring 2013 and, we have to admit, we love the Parisian flair they give to outfits. Preggo ladies should proceed with caution when it comes to horizontal stripes to make sure it doesn't make that growing bump look larger than it really is.

This slim fit dress gives the right dose of stripes, but is offset in an asymmetrical layout to up the chicness factor. Sleeveless Slim Fit Maternity Dress, Destination Maternity, $35
