Singer and actress Hilary Duff is expecting her first baby with hockey-player husband Mike Comrie and has demonstrated her ability to be a maternity-style chameleon, dressing a growing baby bump for any occasion.
Her outfits run the gamut from casual gym-chic to red-carpet glamour, yet Hilary’s youthful energy is evident in all of her fashion choices – from selecting fitted pieces with the right mix of proportions to using bright colors, statement accessories or bold makeup to accent her looks.
Here’s how to get Hilary’s on-trend looks for wherever you’re headed:
Around Town by Day:
Hilary has a penchant for neutral stripes and dark scarves. This sweater from my Target collection is perfect for running errands and the long length works well over leggings. Add accessories like a big carry-all bag or chic hat for instant polish and get a hint of color with bright shoes or a fun keychain, like Hilary’s fuchsia tasseled one.
From Work to Play:
I adore Hilary’s bold color choices for events – mustard yellow and eggplant are fabulous, unexpected hues, especially when balanced with the dark, fitted pants. I personally love a skinny dark denim for evenings. Sophisticated, cowl-neck sweaters and blouse-y tops, such as this version with fluttery sleeves, are great for both the office and nighttime festivities. I don’t recommend wearing big heels while pregnant, but metallic flats are an evening-appropriate alternative – and far more comfortable! Tie the look together with a long, pendant necklace like this gold one from House of Harlow, the jewelry line designed by another stylish mama, Nicole Richie.
