Pregnancy Pregnancy Best Buys Autumn 11 of the best maternity coats The latest looks and styles in pregnancy jackets, coats and capes for Autumn/Winter 2015 1 of Ad break Is a maternity coat a pregnancy essential?One of the big questions if you're pregnant over autumn and winter is whether you need to buy a special maternity coat. You'll find some mums say yes, while others coped without. Of course, it can be a big cost to splash out on, just when your shopping list is looking huge. If you don't want to buy a maternity coat, then many of our mums recommend wearing your coat open and keeping your tummy warm with a big scarf. But if you're clever, you can find a design that will fit your bump and still look stylish and flattering after your pregnancy. Take for example this GORGEOUS ombre jacket from the M&S Indigo range which comes in at £85 and is bang on trend. We've looked at the best selection of coats and jackets out there this season to suit different tastes and styles, with many under £50 as well as a few luxe items.
