Wear easy stripes with skinny jeans and cute flats like Kelsey from Snappy Casual.

Pair unexpected prints like Sydney from The Daybook by mixing a striped top with leopard print pencil skirt. A tailored blazer and gold accessories add polish. The heels are optional, but highly recommended.

Embrace earthy tones for a great weekend ensemble like Kelly who opted for a one-shoulder striped top, chunky knit, leggings and knee-high dark brown boots. Don’t forget the chic top-knot, a total must-have.

Go vintage like James from Bleubird who picked a striped cotton dress in hot pink and white. Pair it with tan booties, it will ground the bright color of the dress.

Teal from Expecting Chic toughed up a basic leggings + layered tees ensemble by adding a cool leather bomber jacket in noir, worn out boots and knit accessories.

Opt for denim in pretty pastels and a striped navy white top like Maryam from Milk-Friendly. Complete the look with oxfords or slipper style loafers in mint green or sky blue for a masculine touch in flirty colors.

A sweater dress looks perfect both before and during pregnancy. Make sure you accentuate your bump by adding a belt right below your bust like Abbey from Along Abbey Road.

Yet another winning ensemble by the lovely Sydney who opted for a striking black and white striped blazer as her accent piece over a black maxi skirt and basic white tee. The cognac-colored belt adds interest to the look. Experiment with belts in bright colors this season to break the black and white look.
