Floral, lace and pretty pastel colors are key trends for summer! When incorporating them into your look, the trick is balancing the ultra-feminine pieces and colors with edgier accessories. For example, pairing this A Pea in the Pod floral maternity dress with a clutch featuring sleek hardware or layering in metallic jewelry. That fresh combination keeps the trend modern, without being too girly. While perfect for a summer soiree, these pretty pieces can find multiple uses and complement the rest of your maternity wardrobe. Looking for a fun way to embrace the trend and get together with friends? Throw a glam garden party and you’ll already know what to wear! Happy styling! –Olivia

Summer weddings are upon us. With so many couples saying, “I do,” we are kicking the season off right with our favorite fashion looks and beauty tips. So, if those invitations have you at a loss for what to wear, then fret no more and get to celebrating in style!
Black Tie: The most formal of wedding dress codes, black tie is your chance to go glam! Try our BCBGMAXAZRIA sleeveless bust ruching maternity maxi dress, which frames your face in a flattering way and comes in the cool color, Orient Blue. Add some sparkle with statement jewelry like a necklace or a colorful ring. Don’t forget to wear some maternity shapewear underneath for a seamless look and added support.Semi-Formal: When semi-formal dress is requested, we recommend erring on the side of formality and opting for a cocktail dress with clean lines. Have some fun by picking a bright, summery option to go with the season like our sleeveless fit and flare maternity dress in the color Pink. The best accessory for a gorgeous dress is glowing skin. Enhance your pregnancy glow with St. Tropez Naturals Self Tan Milk which will give you a natural hint of color.Beach Formal: We love this velvet by GRAHAM & SPENCER sleeveless paisley print maternity maxi dress that will keep you cool under the sun. We recommend pairing it with some strappy flat sandals (no flip-flops!) Embrace the seaside theme by painting your nails a sandy hue with nail polish by Butter London in the color Keene. Most importantly, don’t forget to lather on the sunscreen. Our Lavender Protective Cream Spf 17 by Naturopathica will keep you protected and hydrated.Casual: For a casual wedding, we recommend a dress with a simple silhouette, like Motherhood Maternity’s Short Sleeve Knot Front Maternity Dress. Don’t forget to put on some Lucky Legs By Mama Mio, a rescue remedy to help relieve your hard-working legs and feet; it leaves a super subtle sparkly-shimmer you’ll want to show off!Shop these looks and all of our maternity dresses at A Pea in the Pod stores and online at apeainthepod.com.
