Jessica Simpson made the news official just a few hours ago: She is, indeed, expecting her second baby with fiance Eric Johnson.
Recent photos showed her trying to hide her growing stomach with oversized totes and shopping bags, but now Jessica can show off her condition proudly – and now we can start following both her pregnancy and her style.
When she was carrying daughter Maxwell Drew, she favored simple, comfortable outfits in a muted palette. We saw a lot of black tops and leggings, set off by scarves and jackets. Jessica also liked long dresses just tight enough to show off her bump to the world – even as critics clucked about how much weight she’d gained.
Take a look at some of her outfits from the last year and let us know: Will she go with the same look again? Or will the new baby inspire her to wear brighter colors and looser gowns?
