Long gone are the days of complaining about a lack of stylish, flattering and on trend maternity wear - and good riddance, too. Glam maternity wear label Séraphine has been worn by many a celebrity mother-to-be since the first London store was opened in 2002 and is now, in part thanks to a certain Duchess, on the lips and shopping lists of pregnant women everywhere. The glamourous label, owned by French founder and mother of two Cecile Reinaud, is deservedly booming and will open it's third London store this November in Marylebone. This is in addition to it's proficient online store.

From model mums Elle Macpherson and Christy Turlington to global stars Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon all wearing Séraphine while pregnant, none have had quite the same globalising effect for the brand as its most recent customer, the Duchess of Cambridge, who chose to wear Séraphine outfits throughout her pregnancy. Perhaps most notable, and certainly most photographed, were the dresses she wore on her first visit out with Prince George (a lilac print Blossom dress) and in their first official family photograph (the fushcia Knot dress).

For autumn winter 2013, Séraphine offers a collection of elegant yet wearable maternity pieces, which look fantastic but which require almost no styling: hooray - perfect for those cold winter mornings. Team chunky tights with dresses like the Audrey style: we love its gold zip pocket detailing and that it skims over the bump. The classic Tessa black dress offers a closer fit, for those wanting to show off their bump. If you are shopping for one of those upcoming seasonal parties, check out the sequinned Luella dress; sure to turn heads in a good way.
Other highlights include eye-catching capes, striped knitwear and classic (flattering) wrap dresses. And a brilliant selection of outerwear, including this chic double-breasted coat and, our personal favourite, the Shakira grey wool double zip coat.
