Today I’m bringing you another round of Bump Style Breakdown with the darling Anna from In Honor of Design and Jessica from Little Baby Garvin. This week we are each taking on a bit of a scary trend…especially when trying to dress a bump. All white. I love love love the look of all white. But some people shy away from it fearing that it might make them look bigger than they really are. Here are a few tips for pulling off an all white look, while still flattering your bump. And if you are wanting to know how to pull off and all white look with kids…I can’t really help you. I either wear all white when I am kidless on a date, or on days where I’m not running around with them at the park.
1- Break it up: Whether it’s a white top and white pants, or a long white dress, adding a neutral denim jacket or chambray top tied around the waist is a subtle way to accentuate your bump and make an all white look seem less fussy.
2- Variations: Don’t think that your whites have to match exactly. In fact, a crisp white paired with an ivory is actually more visually appealing. And a bone/off white bag or sandals will also add interest to an all white look.
3- Play with texture: If you are going with a pair of white distressed jeans, try adding lace to the top instead of plain cotton. Or grab a laser cut bag to add visual interest, even if the colors are all monochromatic.
