Maternity Fashion: Summer Dress Guide

There’s nothing like throwing on a casual summer dress for the ultimate in style and comfort, especially when you’re pregnant! This summer, stock your maternity wardrobe with some of these fun summer dress styles.

Bright Whites

Something about the color white just screams summer! The color itself will help keep you cool, and it’s a fresh look you can wear all season. For a fun fashion statement, accessorize your white summer dress with pops of color. Tangerine, blue and yellow accessories are some of the bold brights that look great when worn with white.

Long and Lovely

Lucky for us, maxi dresses are still a hot summer fashion trend this season. We love them so much because besides being both comfortable and stylish, they’re so easy to dress up or down. Look for an empire waist with a belt or soft sash to accent that pretty baby bump. Casual sandals make the look weekend appropriate; for evening, try a maxi dress in a bold color and accessorize with wedges and an oversize clutch. This season, you’ll find plenty of maxis in sheer, lightweight fabrics like chiffon, taffeta and organza, which is the perfect easy-breezy style for hot summer days.

Pretty Prints

Floral prints are a very trendy look for summer 2012 sundresses. And the pretty, feminine prints come in a variety of styles, too. You’ll find small florals, large floral prints and even 3D appliqué styles. If floral prints aren’t exactly your style, there are tons of other print dresses to choose from, too. Tribal-inspired prints and animal prints, for example, are also a hot print trend this season.
