GwenstefaniethnicprintdressBold, large prints are a huge trend for spring, bringing a fun infusion of color to the season. Gwen Stefani is not the only pregnant celeb who has already embraced this trend, Tori Spelling was spotted recently wearing a colorful, printed dress as well. But we do have to say that Gwen seems to be this trend’s biggest fan as she’s been spotted several times in it. Gwen’s dress of choice in this picture is the Diane von Furstenberg Ora Printed Silk Maxi Dress ($585) — it’s not quite a maternity dress, but the billowing style makes for a nice bump coverup!

The thing about dresses of this nature is the better they are made the better they fit. Maternity clothing can be unforgiving and look awful if you don’t find the right items for your body type. The same rules apply during pregnancy as before, dress for your shape (even if your new shape involves a watermelon belly!).

Favorite Items: A Pea in the Pod Printed Silk Jersey Dress (right, $350), Schone Maternity Sasha Dress ($236) and T-Bags Long Halter Dress ($220)

These dresses actually did a great job of catching this trendy style without sacrificing your wallet in the process. We are fans of high fashion, but it can be really hard sometimes to justify the expense of a pricey dress for limited use.

Favorite Items: Motherhood Maternity Charmeuse Patio Dress ($45), This Is Me Maternity Baby Doll Dress ($40 on sale) and Liz Lange for Target Border Print Dress ($30)
