Designer jeans are no longer just the realm of pre and post-pregnancy wardrobes. Some favourite designer denim brands are branching out into the maternity market.
Mavi is a Turkish brand which has been crafting stylish denim for more than two decades. If you’re already a fan of the brand – with flagship stores in New York and Vancouver – and are expecting, you’ll be thrilled to spy its maternity jeans collection.
Everything you’d expect in a traditional pair of designer denim jeans (fit, comfort, superior quality and make) is present in the maternity collection, with added features to accommodate an expanding belly. The jeans have ribbed stretch panels on either side and can also be adjusted from the inside using the hidden, button-up elastic in-seam.
I practically live in jeans – they’re comfortable, can be dressy or casual and are hardwearing. I continued this obsession during my pregnancies, but discovered it’s crucial to find the right pair. It’s no use skimping on quality, because you’ll soon discover your jeans heading south while you’re trying to walk, thanks to ill-made elastic waists. The Mavi jeans come in a host of styles and colours, to suit the season and occasion. The traditional bootleg is my ultimate pick – a style stayer that will never be out of fashion.
There are also mid-rise options, skinny leg, super skinny leg and the gorgeous cuffed leg. Sizes range from six to fourteen, and the jeans are available in regular or long. Prices start at $139.99, from Queen Bee.
