Capes are the latest in coat styling this season. Although their lack of structure can be unflattering, they look sensational on the expectant mother. This roomy extra layer seems to do nothing but flatter a mother-to-be’s forever-changing shape.

Specialising in maternity wear, Isabella Oliver, “designs clothing for pregnant women who love clothes”. Her items are sophisticated and elegant and are well worth a look. The cape below is from her collection  she describes it as “a modern alternative that gives you the warmth without the weight”. It’s a super winter coverup and certainly an item that the expectant mother will grow into with comfort and grace.
