I joined in on a little maternity styling series last week with Anna from In Honor Of Design and Jessica from Little Baby Garvin called Bump Style Breakdown. This week we are sharing out favorite sporty maternity styles. I kept my look simple, but still feminine. This Isabella Oliver dress might look dressy, but it is so comfy! It is soft and isn’t too constricting. But to keep it from looking dressy, I did a few things to make it sporty. Here are a few tips I always use when pulling off a sporty look:
Keep It Flat: Most days I don’t wear heels. They quickest way to dress down your look is to add some flats (like I did here) or cute sneakers. But keep them pretty minimal. Save your actual running shoes for your morning runs.
Layer: I tied a chambray top around this dress as if to say “I might get cold later, so I’m just going to wrap this top around my waist just in case” but what you are really doing is hiding a little of that baby weight, and giving your dress a casual look.
Top It Off: Another quick way to keep your look sporty is not to fuss too much with your hair. A low pony, messy top knot, or a simple baseball hat are perfect ways to dress down your look. And it takes a lot less time than curing and styling.
