18 maternity outfits you'll actually want to wear during the holidays

Being pregnant during the holidays can be hard. Mostly because when it comes to getting dressed and out of the house, being home in sweatpants sounds way more enticing than trying to fit into fancy clothes (at least for me personally). But that changes today, mama, because after tons of research and actually testing these clothes on myself with a pregnant belly with twins, I'm here to tell you there really are cute and comfortable maternity clothes.

So get your credit card ready mama, and let's go shopping! Here are our favorite maternity outfits to throw on for the holidays:

A long black sequin dress

Pietro Brunelli Sequin Maternity Dress

If you want to feel super fancy, this dress is perfect for you. You'll be feeling (and looking) like a glamorous Hollywood star with this long-sleeved sequin dress. It's the perfect outfit for a New Year's Eve party or if your company goes all out for a holiday party, you'll be sure to stand out from all your coworkers.

A long purple dress

LONG RUFFLED DRESS

This dress from Zara is classic, chic and comes in the most beautiful purple color, so if you are looking for a pop of color this is the dress for you. The long sleeves and high neck make it perfect for colder weather. Plus, the fabric is super soft and flowy to keep your bump comfortable all night long.

A long black dress

Maxi dress

I love the Storq maxi dress because it can easily be dressed up or down and is so comfortable. It comes in three different colors, but I prefer the black since it's the most versatile one for the holidays. The stretchy fabric means you can wear this dress at any stage of your bump and beyond!

$112

Floral dress

Navy Floral Sleeveless Maternity Maxi Dress

Florals can and should be, in my opinion, worn all year long. This flowy dress is super comfortable for a growing bump and its looseness in the fabric means you don't have to worry about underwear or tight marks.

A short gold sequin dress

This dress is everything and you will definitely stand out while wearing it. It's designed to fit the body during all stages of pregnancy and the color is ideal for a New Years Eve party if you are adventuring out for a night out.

A silky bright dress

The Fete Gown

This super flowy dress is a head turner, not only for it's super stylish cut but also because of its bright pink color. The silk makes it super light and comfortable on the bump while also giving you space to be comfortable as it grows. The sash is removable so it is also a great style to go from tiny bump all the way to postpartum.

A faux fur jacket 

Jessica Simpson Leopard Print Faux Fur Maternity Coat

This faux fur animal print jacket will make any little black dress stand out. It's soft, comfortable and it'll keep you warm enough during the coldest winter days. You can dress it down with jeans and a white T-shirt if you want to wear it during the day.

This mini dress is stunning and super flirty. The lace gives it an airy vibe without revealing anything underneath. Perfect for a fancy party or a business cocktail.

A super flowy and fun print dress 

Pietro Brunelli Glenn Button Front Maternity Dress

I recently wore this to an event and it was a showstopper. I cannot tell you how many people asked me who I was wearing and complimented me on my look. My belly was super comfortable in it and there was definitely more room to grow.

A cute dress for day festivities 

Mary Caftan

This super cute and versatile dress allows you to wear either a V-neck or a boat neck at the front. It's ideal for day festivities and can be layered with a fluffy sweater and comfortable boots if you live somewhere cold. Added bonus: It's both bump-friendly and nursing-friendly!
