Looking for maternity wear that flatters, looks fashionable and feels feminine? Say hello to Hatch. This New-York based fashion label is designed for style-savvy women who want a wardrobe that not only looks fantastic, but can be worn long after bub has arrived.
My pregnant friend was beyond excited when I showed her the spring/summer 2015 collection from super-hip brand Hatch. Being a fashion-forward mama-to-be she was particularly happy to discover maternity clothes that blend chic, street and cool-casual all in one quality label. “Have bump, will not dress like a frump” is her motto, which fits perfectly with this maternity range from the US.
The Hatch spring/summer 2015 collection includes gorgeous soft cotton jerseys, silk charmeuses, linens, and rich textural cashmeres (from ethical and environmentally-conscious manufacturers) that would work well in our Aussie autumn/winter wardrobe. Simply layer up and mix and match a few key items you love from the Hatch collection.
The standout piece for me is the Hatch Walkabout Jumper (US$238) – a jersey onesie that can be dressed up or worn casual just by switching a few accessories. And how hot does it look!
You really can’t beat leggings for easy comfort and style. In my book a few pairs of good-quality leggings are a must-have for a pregnancy wardrobe as they’re a cinch to layer with different shirts, scarves and sweaters you already own (and boy, can that waistband stretch). Check out the oh-so-stylish (and super-comfy) Hatch range of leggings below: The Denim (US$158), The Night Out (US$148), and The Premium (US$128) are three of my faves from the collection.
And if you’re starting from scratch and need the basics, the helpful Hatch team have created the Hatch Layers Bag ($158). A little drawstring bag contains three essentials that are the building blocks for any woman’s wardrobe. Whether you’re with bump or without you’re going to get plenty of wear out of the Hatch tank, longsleeve and legging. Simple and stylish! And also a great baby shower gift.
Talking of great gifts, we just have to share the Hatch-To-Hospital Box ($248) – a luxurious selection of overnight essentials for when DD arrives. Just check out those cosy-as cashmere socks. I wouldn’t mind this box of goodies for myself and I’m not even pregnant! View the full Hatch collection and shop online. (International shipping is available. Phew!)
