Pregnant? No problem! How to dress up Maternity this New Year’s Eve

A few weeks ago, my friend from High School-times (she went to our main rival HS), Jen, reached out and asked me to help her accessorize her new maternity dress for a wedding on New Year’s Eve. You know how much I love accessorize, so I jumped right on that. With appropriate New Year’s Eve sparkles.

Jen tells me she’ll be “eleventy months pregnant” on December 31. I so remember that feeling. Being the prego-fashionista that I was back then, I always loved the opportunity to take advantage of my pregnancy and wear what was on trend. But as your belly grows, it’s certainly harder to do. I love Jen’s classic selection of dresses, and that she’s choosing to dress it up with accessories that will last long-after the baby is walking!

She selected the wine-colored dress, but still has her eye on the cowl neck dresses as alternatives. Here are a few ideas. (Jewelry links lead to my Chloe + Isabel boutique — thank you!)

The dress is so on-trend, as Pantone just announced “Marsala” as the 2015 color of the year. I couldn’t decide which color-bassed necklace to choose — definitely just one of these and not both!

What I love about the stone in the above jewelry pieces ( luminescent gray mother-of-pearl inlay, set behind a faceted clear cabochon), is it really takes on the color of the dress.

    I’m seven months pregnant and usually go all out for New Year’s, but will have a more quiet NY’s this year. I am, however, going to a formal fundraiser tomorrow night and these are great inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing!
