Style Watch: The Maxi
Posted on 17 May 2014
Yet again, we are seeing the maxi is front and center as a staple for your spring/summer wardrobe. Once thought of as only for the hippies among us, the maxi dress or skirt has proven to be a must have in every wardrobe for every lifestyle. Pick up a fashion magazine and you will see your fair share of celebs rocking THEIR favorite maxi! Don't worry mamas, maternity designers have NOT forgotten about you and your bumps of love. Not only have they brought maxis to the maternity world, they have ROCKED the maternity world with some pretty amazing options!
So you are petite? (nice word for short, lets be honest here) Well I can say I am a proud member of that club too, and good news...There are still options out there for us too! From Seraphine Maternity to LA Made, Ripe Maternity to Imanimo, there are options galore. Solids, stripes, strapless and nursing friendly... You name it there is a maxi for everyone! What I loved about wearing a maxi during my pregnancies, was how easy you can change the look. Dress it up with a wedge or dress it down with a flip flop depending on the mood (and the occasion of course!). Feeling like flaunting the bump? Add a hip hugging belt, want to make it more playful and style stopping? Add some bangles and some layered necklaces. Want to wear a fun summer dress, but you feel like covering up a little? Add an adorable jean jacket or card!
BOTTOM LINE. The Maxi is so comfortable. Looks great. Easy to wear. (and no pants required)
Happy shopping mamas!! Until next time.... LOVE and ROCK THAT BUMP!!
