The arrival of cooler temps means it’s the perfect time to shop for bump-chic fall ensembles. This just in: Starting on Monday, September 16, Gilt is hosting an amazing maternity sale featuring designs from Ingrid & Isabel, Rosie Pope, and more, all in textures and patters that will make transitional dressing a breeze. Here are my top five picks from the sales, and easy ways to accessorize them.

The Perfect Pants
When you head to the gym, keep your look minimalistic. The Ingrid & Isabel Active Pant Featuring the BellyFit Panel™ (Patent Pending) supports your belly while slimming out your legs (a dream come true!). Wear them with a long sport tee to elongate your figure, and switch out your sports bag for a tote so you’re farmer’s-market ready post workout.
If you’re looking for a universally flattering piece to add to your wardrobe (pregnant or not), look no further than the Ingrid & Isabel Three-Quarter Sleeve Wrap Dress. Spice it up with statement jewelry, a structured jacket, and a pair of metallic heels; or keep it casual with a soft-knit cardigan, lightweight scarf, and a hobo bag.
A Striped Staple
Cozy up to the fireplace in Rosie Pope’s fab Paris Sweater. Layer it over a basic tank and comfy leggings, and finish the look with a relaxed ponytail and barely-there makeup. Don’t forget your favorite magazines and decaf latte!
Rosie Pope’s Audra Dress transitions perfectly from day to night, or from office to dinner date. Thanks to the gorgeous print, it’s a statement piece by itself, so keep the extras muted. A great pair of nude shoes and an envelope clutch will do the trick.
A comfy and stylish staple, the Rosie Pope Cowl Neck Sylvie is great for every occasion, from the morning school run to a casual weekend brunch. Pair it with denim in a dark wash and booties for a relaxed daytime look.
