Being pregnant during the holidays can be hard. Mostly because when it comes to getting dressed and out of the house, staying home in sweatpants sounds far more enticing than trying to fit into fancy clothes. (Remember when getting dressed used to be fun?) But let go of your assumptions! We promise there really are cute and comfortable maternity clothes. After all, it's taken a pandemic, but "nap dresses" are now a completely acceptable item to wear 24/7 whether you're pregnant or not.

With life getting back to a more normal pace, the invites may be rolling in already. Whether you're just going to a family gathering or hitting the town for a party, chances are, you're going to need some version of a holiday maternity outfit this season. And many of the looks we love feel just like those sweats you'd rather not have to change out of. From bump-hugging dresses to cozy knits that stun, we've got something for everyone. And what's more, most looks will last long after the party's over. (Versatility is key!)

We've rounded up some of our favorite holiday maternity outfits that will keep you comfortable and stylish– no matter what affairs are on your calendar. Shop our top looks below!
