Actress Jennifer Garner, expecting her third child with hubby Ben Affleck, is the quintessential example of a casual-chic mom-to-be. With her neutral and simple accessories, she embodies an effortless, relaxed maternity look that is well-suited for her busy lifestyle. The best part of Jennifer’s look is that even with a baby on the way she stays true to her personal style.
Here’s how to get her look:
Top: The key to a flattering outfit (pregnant or not) is balanced proportions, which Jennifer does nicely by pairing skinny jeans with more loosely fitting shirts. Try to steer away from looks that are too tight or too baggy head to toe. I love this long, flowy top from my Target collection with fitted denim or leggings.The look is comfortable and stylish.
Shoes: Even though I don’t recommend wearing heels during these nine months, pregnant women can still rock a great-looking shoe! A flat, stylish boot like this one from Frye will work with any outfit – without hurting your feet and lower back.
Scarf: An over-sized scarf is a staple of Jennifer’s maternity wardrobe. It’s warm and cozy, yet instantly takes an outfit up a notch on the style scale. Continue wearing your pre-pregnancy favorites or pick up a trendy infinity scarf, such as this gray knit version from Michael Kors.
Finishing Touches: Jennifer has mastered the chic ponytail. It’s pretty, low-maintenance and always practical for a mom on the go. Whether you pull it into a high or low style, it only takes seconds in the morning – what could be better than that?
