16 weeks pregnant: what stylish A/W purchases can I still make? (Avid and Wise ladies, can you help?)

I'm just starting to get a bump and also to fret about how to look stylish over the next five months or so. Normally I'd be busy investing in key A/W purchases but feel really left out of all the new leather leggings / pencil skirts excitement. When I was pregnant and showing with DS it was summer and I got by with topshop maternity skinnies and leggings and tunic dresses or long vests but I don't seem to have much that will work for this time of year.

How do you stylish ones get through pregnancy still feeling stylish and 'you'? I have already purchased red maternity skinnies and black ones and have two topshop dresses: one navy spotty jersey and one orangey chiffon ( sounds horrid but quite nice). What else should I buy please?

I am 5 ft 1 and very tiny usually, size 6ish. If that helps!

Thanks so much for any suggestions.

I bought an expensive handbag and sunglasses, as they would both fit me throughout pregnancy and make me fell uber stylish whatever I wore!

Sounds silly, but honestly, a decent handbag can make any outfit look good!

Also check out Isabella Oliver here for a couple of key pieces you can wear to death!

Yes yes, fab bag, great comfy knee length boots (unless you are prone to huge leg swelling??), an amazing print scarf and a gorgeous cardi-coat thingy instead of a traditional coat.
