Kate Middleton has been a fashion icon for years now, and very soon we’ll be seeing her sporting a whole new kind of style: maternity wear.
If you’re expecting a little one of your own, feel every bit as elegant and beautiful as the duchess herself with these maternity dresses.
Has not being able to show off your hourglass figure been making you feel less elegant during your pregnancy? You don’t have to feel that way when this lace cocktail dress is every bit as sexy and sophisticated as one you would have worn before your belly started to grow (lunamaternity.com, $320). Lace adds such a graceful touch, as demonstrated by Kate’s enviable wedding dress! So get the look for yourself, and channel your inner duchess.
Purple is the colour of royalty — and for good reason. Vibrant purple is deep, luxurious and looks stunning on all kinds of complexions. You can’t help but feel like royalty when you don this grape V-neck dress (nordstrom.com, $142). Whether you’re at work, on a date or attending a special event, this style of dress will make sure you stand out in all the right ways.
Casual maxi dress
Maxi dresses may be most commonly seen in the summer, but when you’re carrying a baby inside you, you have the right to enjoy a casual and comfortable maxi dress whenever you want. This navy belted dress lets you lounge in comfort while still feeling beautiful (pinkblushmaternity.com, $41). Relax and enjoy!
When pregnant, you have enough to deal with without constantly having to put together ensembles for work. Fortunately maternity designers take that into account and create dresses that look like casual two-piece garments without all the effort of coordinating. This casual but elegant scoop-neck dress is ideal for all sorts of occasions and is the perfect combination of relaxed and dressed up (lunamaternity.com, $135). So throw it on, and go about your day!
Kate Middleton always uses colours to her advantage, and you should too! Colour blocking is a bright and sophisticated way to look and feel great. This 3/4-sleeve colour block dress, for example, is a simple and stylish way to look put together, whether you’re heading to work or out to run errands (jcpenney.com, $36).
Keep yourself and your baby warm and toasty on cold days with a cozy sweater dress. Kate looks radiant in vibrant blue, and you will too when you throw on this indigo belted sweater dress (apeainthepod.com, $100). It’s comfortable yet elegant — perfect for your day-to-day life.
