Beyond the festive parties and gatherings with friends, at the heart of the Holidays is family. From Thanksgiving to Christmas Day, chances are, you will be welcoming the festive season (and the New Year) with your loved ones. While not the time for your sparkling swing mini cocktail dress, a thin, rib knit dress in a longer length and formfitting silhouette will do the trick.
Ultra stretchy and immensely comfortable, Copywriter Leigh Calarco and Online Marketing Manager Michelle Scarpato, both model this closet staple, a ¾ Sleeve Striped Maternity Dress by BCBGMAXAZRIA. From the flattering boat neck to the shape-defining stripes, it’s the perfect casual-yet-still-special holiday wear that can be easily accessorized with a pair of booties and a thin cardigan such as Michelle’s Long Sleeve Open Front Maternity Cardigan.
Flattering while pregnant, and also while not (thank you, rayon/spandex stretch!), it’s a win-win dress with plenty of appeal.

If you haven’t heard already, take it from us, grey is the new black. A cool take on a color that goes with just about anything, grey exhibits the moody depth we love to wear with all of the season’s trends. A shade that lends a bit of edge to your maternity look, try pairing a chunky grey knit, bump-skimming top or a fabulous coat with deep blue skinny jeans or leggings with a touch of leather. Dressed up with some sparkle or dressed down to lounge, grey without a doubt, the IT color.
