With her due date right around the corner (February!), Hilary Duff has been all about comfy outfits and a laidback look. We love that she has been relaxing and taking time to get ready for her first pregnancy. Just yesterday she was seen getting a pedicure wearing comfy black maternity yoga pants, a cute striped t-shirt, and a lightweight cardigan. To add a bit of her own personal style, Hilary added a great fedora and bright yellow earrings. For a similar look, pair 1 in the Oven’s Super Soft Ruched Foldover Maternity Pants with their 2 in 1 Maternity/Nursing Tank. Add your own personal style with your favorite earrings, a cute fedora like Hilary’s, or a colorful scarf.
The day before, Hilary looked gorgeous in a laid-back, all black ensemble while out with her super cute hubby Mike Comrie. A long black top showcased her baby bump beautifully and the leggings she wore were comfortable and chic. By pairing it with funky sandals, glasses, and a great purse, Hilary added stylish detail perfectly. If you love her look, try Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Maternity Leggings paired with Maternal America’s Ribbed Crew Neck Tee. We love how Hilary paired her outfit with strappy sandals, but for colder weather a great pair of flat boots would look just as stylish.
Throughout her pregnancy, Hilary has stayed very active. A few days ago she left a Pilates class wearing her favorite comfy leggings and a cute grey and white faded shirt. We love the ¾ length sleeves as well as the longer tee to provide plenty of coverage in the last months of pregnancy. We are looking forward to Hilary and Mike welcoming their baby!
In a recent Dankins Event at the Santa Monica Ice Rink, mom-to-be Hilary Duff glowed in a fitted cowl neck mustard sweater. Duff presented a check for $10,000 for Danskin’s “Move for Change” charity event.
Duff pairs this gorgeous fitted sweater with black leggings and grey shade boots and a pretty pendant necklace. We love Hilary’s choice of style as the mustard hued sweater brings out her skin’s radiance and complements her hair color. The cowl neck highlights her face and brings the focus upwards. The fitted leggings and sweater show off her pregnancy curves and give her an overall sleek and stylish look. Also, the longer length sweater elongates and streamlines her figure.
Go for a similar look with Olian’s Turtleneck Top, and Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Leggings.
Leggings are definitely the rage now with a longer fitted sweater or tunic. Maternity leggings are an excellent choice for versatile wear with boots or flats. They also make for great transitional wear after the baby!
Cheetah, leopard, zebra…we love the animal print trend this season! Stars have been spotted wearing a variety of animal print clothing, making a trendy and stylish statement. To add animal print into one’s wardrobe, one must do it strategically so as not to create an overwhelming look. Choose one accent piece in a leopard or cheetah print, and wear simpler colors with it. For instance, pairing leopard print flats with skinny jeans and a white tank instantly creates a fresh outfit. If one chooses a top with an animal print, pair it with jeans and simple shoes. This creates a beautiful and stylish balance.
Rachel Zoe, stylist to the stars, rocked the animal print look during her pregnancy earlier this year by pairing leopard print booties with an all-black outfit. The booties added color and pizazz while the monochromatic black was very classic. Just this past week, Beyonce paired a leopard print scarf with skinny jeans, a white tank, and a structured red blazer. The printed scarf pops beautifully against the white and red, without being overpowering. For the taping of a television show appearance in mid-October, the expecting Hilary Duff wore a loose fitting leopard print blouse with tight leather pants. The looseness of the top balanced beautifully with the pants, and the color combination was perfect.
If one loves the leopard print trend, there are several great options. Olian’s ¾ Sleeve Animal Print Maternity Dress is a flattering holiday option, and looks fabulous paired with opaque black tights and black heels. If one just wants a hint of the trend, a great pair of animal print ballet flats or a zebra printed purse will do the trick. Animal print is a great way to pep up one’s maternity style!
With the holidays just around the corner, stars have been stepping out for many events and we are loving the clothing we see! This past week, some of our favorite mommies to be rocked the red carpets in gorgeous maternity clothing, showing off their burgeoning baby bumps.
At the Footwear News Achievement Awards, the beautiful Jessica Simpson received recognition for her own fabulous footwear designs. Although her footwear collection is gorgeous, it was her stunning outfit that everyone was commenting on. She looked beautiful deep crimson wrap dress. The wrap style accented her curves perfectly, accentuating her hourglass figure and showing off her baby bump. We loved it! For a dress that creates a similar shape, try Maternal America’s Front Tie Keyhole Dress. The V-neck elongates one’s body, creating a longer and leaner look while the V-neck crossover design flatters by accenting the smallest part of one’s body. Pair it with gold heels for a night on the town, or nude pumps for a day at the office.
Another one of our favorite expectant mothers, Hilary Duff, looked beautiful at a holiday soiree with her sister this past week. Hilary always keeps her maternity looks young and fresh while ensuring she is comfortable. Here she paired skinny jeans and heels with a V-neck faux wrap top that was very flattering. This look works well for both during and after pregnancy, as it camouflages one’s bump. The Criss Cross Maternity/Nursing Top from Maternal America has the same great versatility as Hilary’s top. To dress it up, follow Hilary’s lead with skinny jeans and heels, but for casual daytime usage wear it with dark bootcut jeans and cute white sneakers.
We cannot wait to see what else these soon to be first time mothers will wear!
Lizzie McGuire is all grown up! The beautiful Hilary Duff and her cute hockey player husband Mike Comrie are expecting their first child together this February. Hillary announced her pregnancy on an October 14th appearance on The Ellen Show, stating, “”I haven’t told anyone yet. I wanted to tell you first. I just found out.” As to the baby’s gender? “It’s a boy! I had a feeling it was a boy the whole time,” she gushed to Ellen. We are so excited for the sweet couple, who also just celebrated their first year of marriage.
Throughout her pregnancy, Hilary has been staying healthy and in shape with lots of work out sessions, and looking cute in the process. On November 2nd, she was spotted leaving the gym in cute ankle length leggings, and a V-neck tee. The tee was cut extra-long to provide plenty of coverage for her growing baby bump. For a similar look, pair Maternal America’s Maternity Leggings with Shade Maternity’s Baby Tee. Comfy and stretchy, one will feel and look great throughout one’s workout. The following day, Hilary sported a similarly comfortable look while rushing through JFK Airport. She highlights her baby bump in a cute long-sleeve white tee, black stovepipes, ankle booties, and a cozy black scarf. By sticking to classic colors and shapes, she looks both chic and comfortable. We love how she layered a striped tank underneath the white tee to provide extra length and coverage!
Hilary transitions easily from day to night, as she showed us this Monday at the Hollywood launch of The Beauty Book for Brain Cancer. She rocked a sequined, citrus-hued mini dress that showed off her curves beautifully. Pairing it with gold jewelry and nude pumps created a perfectly modern look, and her long, soft waves of hair contrasted the tightness of the dress perfectly. Congratulations to the happy couple!
