Your baby shower may not be your wedding, but the dress is still important. The dress sets the mood and tone for the party and can really make your day. Your dress is what you remember in all those photographs with your close friends and family in the weeks or maybe days before your baby arrives. So it is important that you treat yourself to a dress that you like, that is comfortable, in a color and style you enjoy. This season prints are especially popular and there are many fun styles to choose from.
If you want to jazz it up, then go for a cool print. There are a number of festive prints by Maternal America that are beautifully cut and tastefully made. Check out Maternal America’s Chloe Kimono Tunic. This tunic features a rich pattern of fuchsia, magenta and coral in a swirling motif with black accents. In cooler weather you can pair this tunic with black leggings for a comfortable but edgy look.
Maternal America’s Dakota Print Tunic is another maternity dress option that looks great with or without leggings and gives a distinctive stylish look. It’s flowing and geometric border print is beautiful with a Dakota Native American motif and its kimono fit is easy to wear.
If you are feeling girly, go for florals. Olian’s Floral Ombre dress is as pretty as dresses come with a black fitted halter top, turquoise empire waist sash and beautiful black and floral print on the skirt portion against a white backdrop. This style embodies spring, new life and beauty itself.
