Jennifer Love Hewitt will welcome her first baby into the world next month, and the whole experience of being pregnant has sparked the desire to design her own line of maternity wear!
The actress has partnered up with Pea in the Pod for a capsule collection of chic yet comfy clothing for the expectant mom! She said:
“Being pregnant for the first-time, I wasn’t sure exactly what pieces I was going to need at different stages. When I went to A Pea in the Pod, I gravitated toward the pieces I could wear early on in my pregnancy and that would also grow with me as my body kept changing. I no longer felt overwhelmed. So with my collection, I wanted to design pieces that other moms-to-be could easily wear from the first trimester, throughout their pregnancy and even after their baby is born. It’s one less thing you have to think about or stress over while your preparing for or spending time with your new baby!”
Her collection, called L by Jennifer Love Hewitt, will feature lots of basics, like t-shirts and leggings, as well as stylish yet wearable pieces like cowl-neck tops and print maxi dresses.
"The leggings that have zippers on the side are my go-to piece in this collection. These are the perfect maternity item — they stretch and move with you and have that added embellishment makes you feel instantly chic. You can dress them up or down and feel great wearing them. I like to pair them with a tee or tunic for during the day and then I can throw on a leather jacket and booties for the night time.”
The maxi dresses, on the other hand, have been perfect during the last few months of her pregnancy. Jennifer admitted:
“They make me feel feminine and they are so comfortable!”
She also gave some sound advice for women who might be struggling with their style while pregnant, saying:
“Find the pieces that make you feel like you and the best and most confident version of you! If you invest in pieces like a maxi dress, side-ruched tees, a pair of leggings and a versatile blazer or jacket, you can mix and match all of them throughout your pregnancy.”
As for J.Love's personal fave pregnant dresser — it's Halle Berry! Jennifer praised the actress's style, saying:
“She always looks chic and pulled together, which proves that your pregnancy doesn’t have to compromise your personal style.”
Jennifer's collection will hit Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity stores in March, so keep an eye out!
