A dark blue maternity dress, golden bangle, brown strappy sandals and a beige bag

Expecting? You’re in luck. Our Editor-in-Chief’s exclusive maternity collection for A Pea in the Pod just launched, and it’s filled with staple pieces you’re going to live in from your first trimester right through the end of your pregnancy (and likely for a few months after too). Here, three key items in the spring collection—an edgy jacket, flowy maxi and black leggings—and how to wear them now and later.


Key Piece: The Edgy Jacket
