Breeze your way into fall in a wrap dress! Pregnant or not, a wrap dress is one of the most versatile (and comfortable) dresses in your wardrobe. Not only is it figure flattering for any body type - highlights all the right curves and minimizes the not so lovely ones - but it’s a great option for dressing up or down. And the best part? It adjusts with your growing baby belly. Selma Blair looks lovely in her bright red, but choose a color that works with your skin tone. Pair it with simple accessories and you’re good to go! This ASOS dress is quite the steal, but this wardrobe staple may be worth a splurge. You’ll get continuous wear out of it and it’s easy to change this look up. Add a light cotton scarf and some flats and you’re ready for lunch out with the ladies!

Jessica Alba makes layers look lovely! Each piece of this ensemble is a style staple that will give you a lot of mileage throughout your pregnancy and even after your baby is born! Your “regular” wardrobe may be quite extensive, but when it comes to building your maternity wear, you want to be able to find style staples that are multi-functional. A great pair of leggings (hello, comfort!), a blazer for dressing up or down, and a tee shirt that looks lovely with jeans, leggings, or a skirt are a great place to start. Layering them also helps you transition throughout the seasons - or your changing body temperature! Look confident and carefree in this outfit!
