Whether on the beach, running errands or chasing kids, this look brings easy comfort to your busy day. Full length ruching plays well on your growing belly and bends with you while accentuating your best curves! We are loving the Betty Striped Maternity Dress from Isabella Oliver!

Play with pops of color to add personality for a fun summer look. For added flare, think Neon! Combine with playful accessories for a casual, yet chic statement.

Stripes Made Simple

Dress:  ModCloth, Fur vest: H&M (similar style here), Boots: DSW

“Unlike the nimble zebras camouflaging pattern this diagonally striped dress allows you to stand out in a crowd! The lines of black and beige create quirky angles on this flattering cotton-blend dress while the sleeves feature button tacks which you can adjust as you wish. Wear this dress with a long golden necklace and knee-high boots to create a fiercely fashionable ensemble.” The store description of the dress sums it up pretty good, doesn’t it?

When it comes to stripes, it’s all about choosing the right cut and style. Stripes can make you look wider on your pregnant body if you’re not careful. So opt for skinny stripes, preferably in a basic neutral color to give you that flattering silhouette we all look for. Trust me, when you’re balancing around a 9 month old belly, stripes can and will become your best friend! I already own 8 different kinds of striped apparel to get me through this last month! (So be on the lookout for more striped outfits coming up!)

Still nervous about stripes? Tone it down by layering it with a structured blazer or cardigan, or a fabulous fur vest, like this one. It doesn’t get any trendier than a faux fur vest this Fall.

Safari Vibe

Top: Forever21 (old, similar style here + here), Pants: Bohme Boutique (similar style here), Necklace: Kohls from the Daisy Fuentes Collection, Bangles: Kohls (old, similar style here), Shoes: Nordstrom (old, similar style here)

Incorporating animal prints in clothing and accessories is one of the hottest trends this summer! It can breath fresh life into any dull outfit but it’s all about balance! To keep the look classic and simple, a good tip would be to choose one print and make it a key piece in your ensemble.

Brighten up the look by pairing it with pastel colored denims and simple jewelry to keep it from being too over the top.  If you’re still not quite ready to dive in fully on this trend, try adding it in small doses. You can still create a glamorous, striking effect with bold animal prints on belts, bags or sexy heels/flats.

Let’s talk comfort!

While expecting, dark denim jeans are just as essential as the Little Black dress. However, you can add a little pizzazz to your maternity style by picking out a pair of chic colored jeans. Make sure to pick comfortable stretchy denim, or my absolute fave: COLORED JEGGINGS. Not only are they very stylish, but are perfectly slimming and comfortable beyond belief. Buy a size or two bigger, and voila! you can look effortlessly chic throughout your whole pregnancy!
