Here are some of the leading maternity sweater trends for Fall 2009:
Fall 2009 Maternity Trend: Oversized Open Front Cardigans
A must-have addition to any mom-to-be’s wardrobe for Fall 2009, these versatile sweaters can be worn over virtually any type of top and double as a light jacket or wrap. They’re designed without any buttons or hooks so that they can be left to hang open.
Ruched Maternity Sweater Tops for Fall 2009
Ruched tops are a leading Fall 2009 fashion trend in both the maternity and women’s department, and this style can be especially flattering for the mom-to-be because it gathers around the lower waist and hips to add some curves in just the right places. These maternity sweaters are available in cowel neck and v-neck styles. Pick up yours in violet, grey, pewter, black or burgundy for the Fall 2009 season.
Fall 2009 Maternity Trend: Layered Sweaters
Short sleeve mock layer maternity sweaters like this sweater from a Pea in the Pod are a great fit for women who need a comfortable sweater for the office. This sweater is designed with jersey knit material that stretches for comfort, and is designed with a built-in shirt to create the look of a layered set.
Flutter Sleeve Maternity Sweater for Fall 2009
Flutter sleeves are a leading trend for Fall 2009 and this semi-casual design is a good match for going out for dinner or special events at home. The flutter sleeve maternity sweater is available in cowel neck and square-neck designs and is typically designed in a tunic length to provide extra coverage. Look for yours in dark purple, pewter, black or a deep pink for the Fall 2009 season.
Fall 2009 Maternity Trend: Cascade Sweaters
Cascade sweaters are another functional option for the mom-to-be looking for a wrap-style cardigan without buttons. These sweaters are longer in the back than they are in front and can be worn with jeans and casual pants for an extra layer without the fuss. These also stay open, and can be worn by day or night.
¾ Sleeve Empire Waist Sweaters for Fall 2009
If you prefer short-sleeve sweaters over Fall, an empire waist ¾ sleeve maternity sweater may be the most stylish option for the season. These sweaters typically fall a few inches below the waist and are gathered under the bust line to create a flattering look. ¾ sleeves can also elongate you arms and make you look taller.
