What to wear when you’re expecting (Part III): Wrap dresses

Continuing my series of “What to wear when you're expecting”, the item I wanted to highlight today is a wrap dress. (Part I: How to style a boyfriend blazer and Part II: How to style a maxi dress).

For the office, wrap dresses are a great solution. The beauty of the wrap dress is the wrap portion. You can make it as tight or as loose as you want. Since it’s a wrap dress, I have the ability to adjust it. For expectant mothers, wrap dresses are great for transition to and from pregnancy. I lived in this Old Navy wrap dress throughout my first and second trimester. Although, it is getting shorter since my tummy is getting bigger every day.

What I am wearing:
Dress: GAP - size XS (buy similar)
Shoes: Bakers - old (buy similar)
Necklace: c/o Stella and Dot
Watch: Michael Kors 5128 in rose gold

The selection of maternity clothes is pretty basic and drab. I bought this GAP dress months ago as a back up and couldn't be happier. Since the length is a bit longer compared to the Old Navy one, I am still able to wear at 30 weeks pregnant. I really love the polka-dot print of this dress. It does add personality to a rather simple dress. This dress is made out of heavy knit fabric, great quality and the fit is very flattering. It is the perfect piece to wear to the office or anywhere I need to look and feel comfortable. I can see myself wearing this dress almost to the end of my pregnancy

I hope you enjoy my series so far and find the information useful. Remember, you don't need to spend a fortune on clothes that you can only wear for a few months. All you need is some creativity and experiment with a whole new world of fashion =)
