Cool Maternity Clothes
Currently, there are more than a dozen Harpo staffers expecting, and some of them have volunteered to model Liz's favorite fashions. "I sort of selected these looks to show you that there's so many sort-of rules out there that are all meant to be broken," Liz says.
Her beautiful blue dress is proof that pregnant women can pull off color. "Some people think you can't wear color when you're pregnant. Of course you can," Liz says. "This dress we actually made for Vogue. It's in the April 2007 Vogue now and you look phenomenal."
Liz says that mixing up your wardrobe can keep you looking sexy right up until your due date. "If you wear a cropped jacket, you can actually wear something longer underneath and that will give you a little coverage but still sexiness," Liz says. "You're celebrating. This is a sexy, happy time. I mean, my gosh, how did you get pregnant in the first place?"
Instead of making Anna look bigger, the stripes actually have a slimming effect. "You look totally thin," Liz says.
Sara is wearing a top from the Liz Lange Collection—which runs between $100 and $150—but her stretch jeans are available at Target for only $25! "So it's not like you have to spend a fortune, and you get a great look," Liz says.
Liz says there are simple ways to make yourself feel less self-conscious in a print as well. "If you're uncomfortable about your arms, as many pregnant women are, … wear a cardigan that's not even maternity. If you don't want—you don't even have to button it."
"I think a black dress is the backbone of every woman's wardrobe, pregnant or not," Liz says. "You kind of want that little black dress, or maybe in this case it's not so little, but this dress could take you anywhere, day or night. You could even go black tie."
