Tips for Planning Prom

By William Brasky Jr.

A mother-to-be should be the happiest woman on the earth, but sometimes the extra weight gain can put a damper on the way a pregnant woman feels. Choosing the right maternity clothing can go a long way toward alleviating the unattractive feeling a woman often experiences.

The perfect jacket is one of the most important elements of your wardrobe, and with so many shapes and fabrics available this fall, it would be a crime to choose just one. The ever-present denim jacket is back with a new vengeance. Instead of the washes of last season or bulkiness of years before, this seasons denim jacket is soft, body-conscious and far more feminine than the traditional denim jacket. Corduroy and leather are back again, cropped and ready to be worn over anything from your favorite dress to distressed jeans.

A new take on an old favorite is safe, but take advantage on the amazing new fabrics and styles the end of the year has to offer. Brocade is big this season and some of the most sought-after new jackets are made of the rich, detailed design. Many of these brocaded, boudoir-style jackets are trimmed in rich velvet or lace piping and can be paired with tweed trousers of you favorite jeans. Many of these new jackets are cut at the hip but some are reaching even highercropped just below the chest (H & M). Made in rich, new fabrics like tweed and velvet, these jackets have mixed a traditionally matronly fabric with a cut and cling that makes it youthful and sexy. Even faux fur and metallic finishes are adorning the newest trend (Allen B. by Allen Schwartz).

You will also want accessories that complement formal dresses. Choose jewelry, shoes and purses that look stylish with your dress. This is also true when choosing pieces to go with bridesmaid dresses, or other formal gowns. Jewelry can be worn according to your personal taste and the style of your gown. Rhinestones are always attractive and classy. Wear a necklace that goes with the neckline of your dress and earrings that complement your hairstyle.

In addition to maternity pants, shirts, skirts and dresses there are other items of clothing that can increase a pregnant woman's comfort. Finding the right underwear is very important too. If you want to look good you need to feel good. Nursing bras should have the ability to stretch, which is why cotton bras are the most popular during and after pregnancy.
