Black and White Fashion for the Modern Mom by Loyal Hana

Gone are the days of oversized mumu dresses and baggy sweatpants. Maternity fashion has evolved into some of the most desirable, high-quality, and comfortable clothing in the fashion world, giving new modern moms the opportunity to expand upon their personal style… and not just their waistline. While we love bright colors and fun patterns when it comes to accessorizing the bump, there’s something to be said about the timeless beauty and instant touch of chic that a classic black and white color combo has to offer — not to mention an aesthetic that simply doesn’t go out of style. If you’re going to spend your hard earned money on maternity fashion, why not choose something that can remain a staple in your closet throughout your pregnancy and beyond?

With pure sophistication, the black and white color combination has become a go-to for modern stylists in an effort to make everyday look fabulous, while easily transitioning to work or date wear with just a touch of lipstick and mascara. If your pregnancy style is seemingly lacking such ease and elegance, Loyal Hana has a number of black and white options in fun, bold prints that will not only become a go-to throughout each trimester, but also beyond (hello adorable nursing options!).

About the Brand


Wanting modern moms to feel confident, stylish, and capable of tackling the world of motherhood whether staying at home or in the workforce, Loyal Hana set out on a mission to give back to those who give so much of themselves (moms!) through their fashionable clothing line. Realizing the need for chic maternity clothing and nursing wear, Loyal Hana dresses women in a way that makes them feel comfortable in not only their changing bodies, but their changing roles as well. We love that Loyal Hana made it a mission to create clothes that flatter our bodies, no matter the size of our ever-growing bumps and breasts.

Everyday Chic


When it comes to everyday, casual wear, keeping it simple is a must. We want to be able to throw it on without too much maintenance, looking effortless but also styled at the same time, because let’s be real — everything in pregnancy is tiresome. For a quick change from pajamas to day wear, we love the Anya in Arrowhead print sleeveless dress! 

The Anya dress is a lightweight, loose-fitting dress with stylish pleats in the front that add a great deal of depth and movement. Side pockets make this dress casual and functional, while hidden side zippers on each breast offer easy access for nursing mothers. The pleated neckline also adds a touch of classic beauty.

While we love the ease of the Anya dress, we also love the simplicity of a romper, made perfectly for a growing belly, from the first trimester through birth and nursing. The Marni in Black is a casual sleeveless jumpsuit, made of super-soft cotton-jersey material that makes wearing it throughout spring and summer comfortable and breezy.  

Also featuring an adjustable waist drawstring, tapered ankles, and pockets, the jumpsuit is the perfect blend of function and fashion. The wider shoulder straps make it easy to hide bra straps, while the relaxed style provides for a casual, easy silhouette. 

Wear to Work


When you’re spending money on a new closet, buying items that can be worn on the weekends and also to work are a must for keeping money in your pocket and ease in your style. Sticking with the black and white theme that we love, we think the Cybelle in Black and White Chevron is the perfect dress for work wear, weekend outings, or even date night with your loved one. The bold black and white printed shirt dress exudes professionalism and style, featuring cuffed sleeves, a detailed neckline, and a hi-low hem for extra coverage.

Side pockets and hidden side zippers add to the dress’ functionality, while the light, airy fabric keeps things cool during the warmer months.

Keeping in line with the professional style of the Cybelle shirt dress, the Carrie in Black Crosshatch features all of our favorite details of the shirt dress, but in the form of a shirt. With deep side pockets, a small collared neckline, cuffed sleeves, and a hi-low hemline, the Carrie is the perfect top with either a nice pair of black pants for work, or white shorts for weekend wear. 

Like all of Loyal Hana’s maternity wear, hidden side zippers make nursing or pumping incredibly easy and discreet. No more fumbling with the shirt, pulling it up, or pulling it down.

From Work to Play


Versatility is the key to maintaining a closet full of options without spending a great deal of money. With black and white, high contrast clothing options, your look will always come across as modern, cohesive, and purposeful. For a look to bring you through your work day and into an evening summer get together with friends, the Chloe in black and white is our go to for incredible style and chic wear like no other. 

Featuring a box pleat collar, deep neckline, side slit pockets, and discreet nursing zippers, the Chloe is the perfect dress for an evening of fun. The silky silhouette and light weight feel will keep summer nights cool against the skin. This dress is so versatile that it can be worn with heels, flats or sandals, depending on whatever adventure you set out on (and how swollen your feet may be).


Sleek and sophisticated — whoever thought those words would describe a maternity wardrobe! Times have certainly changed since the days of our parents, and we couldn’t be more excited for the focus on maternity and nursing wear in the fashion world. With so many classic and effortless options from Loyal Hana, our pregnancy style is set from day to night, trimester to trimester, and post-baby.
