Stripes Made Simple

“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.
