Love this Look: Drop-Waist Maternity Clothes

The vast majority of maternity clothes opt for an empire cut, cinching the waist right below the bust. While this is a perfectly logical, classic solution to accommodating a baby bump, we’re loving the drop-waist style that has an elastic band right under the belly. While it might work best on a more slender frame, it’s an adorable way to accentuate a growing bump. It’s also a good way to make a first- or second-trimester pregnancy look a little less obvious.
