While I don’t hop on a lot of “trend” wagons, I have to comment that I adore how the late 60s-early 70s fashion styles are being incorporated in our current fashion. One of those “throwback trends” if you will is the Mock-Neck, a faux turtleneck that comes up almost to your chin, but doesn’t fold over or create a ton of layers. Recently this neckline can be found on everything from baggy crop tops to sleek body con dresses. I found a great version that fits me perfectly and looks great with my baby bump at Francesca’s.
This Mock-Neck Shift dress is everything comfort wise that I need while in the third trimester (and it’ll still look awesome after the baby since it’s not “maternity” labeled!). The dress has tons of movement, is a nice cool poly/cotton blend, and the colors are neutral enough that I could easily pair this with a heavier jacket and tights in the fall, so it’s got multi-seasonal functionality.
While this dress looks great on it’s own I wanted something to cover my arms which are getting a tad flabbier towards the end of this pregnancy, so I chose this great slate blue flyaway that contrasts perfectly with the blush on the bottom of the dress. I completed the look with a great Henri Bendel beaded tassel necklace, my favorite lace-up sandals, and this summer’s go-to sunnies by Prada.
The versatility this dress gives me is by far my favorite aspect of this dress, because I’m only going to have this body for 5.5 more weeks. I love that this style is accommodating to my pregnancy needs, while still being fashionable & classic enough to look amazing long after my baby is born!
