Maybe it’s just us but lately we’ve been obsessing about the new season’s it skirt: the pleated maxi! Wear this ultra-fem must-have with a simple tee and bejeweled flats for a nonchalant look or give it a 9-to-5 twist by adding a printed scarf and tailored jacket. If the floor-gracing style is not your thing, you can opt for a knee-length hem version instead. These are best paired with high heels and a cropped jacket. You know we’re firm believers that you don’t have to sit out on the major trends when expecting, so to prove the truth in that statement we’ve rounded up a few pull-up styles that you can place right below your bump. Thanks to their elastic waistband, you’ll feel comfortable WHILE looking chic! Plus, the sharp vertical lines on the repeating pleats will elongate your figure and create a visually slimmer silhouette. Go on, get excited. Happy spring pleating, mamas!
