Top five highstreet maternity jumpers for winter

A winter jumper is essential. Not only will it keep you and your growing bump warm, but chosen properly, will form a staple part to your maternity wardrobe and ensure you don't spend hundreds on a collection you won't be wearing for too long.

Thankfully the highstreet has a range of maternity jumpers available to suit every need and trend.

Go for a Breton stripe number, like this one from Asos, which is perfect for wearing under a blazer for work or with a pair of jeans for a casual weekend look, while Topshop's stud grunge jumper is great for ladies who want to stay on-trend and perfect teamed up with a pair of maternity skinnies and heels for a night out.

If you're looking for a jumper for the office then this lace knit navy blue one from Next is great teamed up with trousers or a skirt, while Mothercare's simple black knitwear is perfect for any occasion.

See the gallery below for our top five highstreet picks.

Get the look: Fearne Cotton's maternity tunic dress

We were super excited when we found out Fearne Cotton was pregnant as we knew she'd be channelling her eclectic and unique style into her maternity wear.

And we weren't wrong.

Last month the TV and radio presenter was spotted in a simple black tunic, which she made her own by adding patterned tights and ankle boots.

Sunglasses and a simple bag added to the look.

If you want to channel Fearne's look then buy the tunic dress now from for £125.

Keep it simple like the TV starlet by sticking with black accessories or make it your own and be a little bit more daring with a pair of coloured tights or bold accessories.

Teaming this versatile frock with a pair of on-trend red heels for a night out is also guaranteed to make you feel the belle of the bump ball.

Brands we love: Keungzai maternity fashion

If you're looking for that glam outfit suitable for the office and after work dinner then Keungzai has some great styles.

The relatively new maternity fashion boutique has come up trumps with its range that uses soft fabrics such as jersey, flowing gracefully over beautiful bumps in styles that match those seen on the highstreet mainstream fashion rails.

We love the printed rouched dresses and printed blouses that will show off your bump whilst enhancing your curves.

Now where did we put that credit card?

Blossom Mother and Child launches catwalk video tool

Dressing your baby bump can be hard work, especially if you want to work the latest styles into your wardrobe.

That's why we heart the new tool on Blossom Mother & Child’s website, which lets you see what its AW 2012 collection looks like on the catwalk, and more importantly, your bump.

Although this isn't a new thing- highstreet stores have been offering this online for a while now-  this video service is one of the first for maternity.

Simply click on the ‘view catwalk’ icon on the bottom right corner of a selection of  the company's maternity jeans, dresses, tops and jackets and you’ll see your garment of choice modelled on the runway and how they work with a bump.

Shopping for that perfect maternity outfit has never been so much fun.
