Shine bright in our holiday dresses this season. Shop for maternity or nursing looks that will keep you looking glam with your growing bump or nursing babe by your side. 

 It's December, which means work parties, family dinners, evenings out and a whole lot of photos are on the horizon. To get you holiday ready, our Ella Bella stylists have put together a list of their top pick holiday dresses to have you looking and feeling your best if you are either expecting or nursing!

Maternity 

We love dresses for maternity and because they are a complete outfit all in one. After you have chosen a dress, add shoes and accessories and you are ready to go! A skirt and shirt assemble can sometimes be difficult depending on the size of your growing baby bump, and the lines and bulk they can create don’t always accentuate your figure in the best way. A dress can slip on and hug your belly with ruching or detailing for the cleanest overall look that will highlight your beautiful curves. Here are our picks for holiday dresses 2014:

3/4 Sleeve Cashmere Dress by Maternal America 

Stay warm and comfortable in this elegant and luxurious fit and flare heather grey cashmere dress. It is very cozy and soft which will be perfect for a dinner or holiday party this winter. Layer this dress over tights or leggings and add a bold statement necklace for a minimal classic vibe. 

Embellished Jersey Dress by Queen Mum

This is a perfect little black dress for your pregnancy and afterward! The thick jersey fabric and classic cut is very flattering on all body types. The silver hardware along the neckline and waist dresses it up with understated elegance. Pair it with black tights and classic pumps or wedges for a sophisticated evening out. 

 

This ultra feminine maternity dress will give you a stylish winter look! We love the beautiful blossom pattern with birds, and the delicate sheer black underskirt that hangs just below the hemline for added style. The fabric is super soft and comfortable and the elasticated empire waist line defines your shape perfectly. Pair it with tights, boots and a skinny maternity belt. Or wear it more casual with a long cardigan!
