With summer almost here, a wardrobe that keeps you cool and comfortable is a must, especially if you are expecting! The one item I tell every mom-to-be to invest in if they are expecting during the warmer months is a maxi! An instant outfit, a maxi is versatile enough to be worn throughout your whole pregnancy. This version from Isabella Oliver is one of my favorites. The simple knit print and side-ruching feature makes this dress extremely flattering. For an effortless and on trend weekend look, I suggest pairing a maxi with a thong sandal, panama hat and cuff. Dress things up for an evening out with a wedge, statement necklace and jacket. Happy styling -Olivia

Modern suiting gets a make-over for spring with our Isabella Oliver Maternity collection, tailored just for moms-to-be. Opt for a blazer and slim pencil skirt paired with a feminine shirt and you have an office-appropriate look that is perfect for your bump. I love a classic pump or even a more seasonal option, like a sandal, which will elongate your look. Don’t forget flip-flops for the commute! –Olivia

Spring assortments are hitting stores this month full of new neutrals, soft colors with bright pops, plus DENIM! If you are anything like me, then I know you are looking forward to updating your wardrobe, so look for lots of destructed washes and silhouettes. Denim is so hot right now, ever since the chambray shirt became a staple in any woman’s closet, especially in the maternity fashion world.
The denim dress is also new on the scene and what’s great about this piece is that you can wear it now or later when the weather gets warmer. Here’s how: since indigo looks great with colors and neutrals alike, I personally pair mine with classic shades. For instance, against a black tight and chic blazer, the indigo denim really pops. Add in some cool winter accessories like a cashmere hat, infinity scarf and booties to make a look that is edgy and cool. Finish with a statement bag and dark polish.
For later, I love playing up the denim dress with a chic nude and metallic palette. Start with a nude seamless maternity camisole for smoothing support; add an oversized straw hat and metallic thong sandal. Keep your accessories minimal with a metallic ring, nude nail and bag. Of course, I always suggest a signature frame to complete the look. If you are newly expecting, this new LBD (little blue dress) is a great investment piece since you can wear it through the rest of the winter season, through the summer and even after baby. Happy styling! -Olivia
