Versatility is essential in any woman"s wardrobe, but for the pregnant woman, it"s critical, explains Liz Lange. Less is more when it comes to maternity fashion. With this concept in mind, I"ve created a system of must have pieces that effortlessly work together. By picking pieces wisely, the fashion savvy woman can experience every facet of her pregnant life with style and sophistication.
For Fall 2012 designers are inspired by a wide range of influences, from the elaborate details of brocade and metallic gold embellishments to the dynamic mix of military chic and power pantsuits. Colo
