Steal Her Style: Kourtney Kardashian Maternity

Since Kourtney Kardashian is with child once again, I thought it would be a great time to revisit her AMAZING maternity style. No one does pregnancy as well as Kourtney, she is honestly the poster child woman for dressing a baby bump.

Dresses are my favorite, especially during pregnancy. It's one article of clothing and it looks pulled together. Plus it's super comfortable. How much easier can it get? The form fitting black dress and red and white striped dress show off Kourtney's expanding belly which she smartly accessorizes with a bright tote. However, her real talent is pulling off a shift dress. As a petite lady myself (coming in at 5'2'') I know that wearing a shift dress can just as easily look frumpy as it does fabulous. It's tough to pull the look off just right and not look like you threw a sack over yourself. Kourtney's look works because she has the two most important things right: LENGTH and SHOULDER WIDTH. This girl knows her sweet spot and her dresses fall just a few inches above the knee. I would estimate about an inch past the point of her fingertips. The other part needed to pull the look off is a perfectly fitted shoulder width. She focuses on the smallest part of her shoulders and makes sure the top is structured and there is no extra fabric bunching up. This is crucial for making this look work! I adore how she pairs these dresses with sandals and flats, it's just so darn practical! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Maxi dresses are the best! Kourtney looks like a maternal goddess in all her flowing splendor. She mixes it up by wearing different necklines. She does some empire maxi dresses with a rounded neck and a v-neck to subtly show off that great rack. She doesn't overwhelm the look with baubles but instead opts for a large tote and a structured blazer and works in a pop of color. The key here is to KEEP IT SIMPLE. There's no need for tons of colors, and patterns, and accessories, and layers. Just make sure those shoulders are properly fitted and your dress is the proper length (not dragging or above the ankle). Once again, she finishes the look with sandals.

Of course we can't leave out the ever-popular black skinny pants. Here she rocks out the skinny jeans with a plain white tee and a fab stripped blazer. So simple and classic. For an edgier look she pairs black leggings with an off the shoulder, flowy black and white top. Balance is key in both these looks. If you are going to rock a loose top then the bottom has to be fitted (and vise versa). Also, in both these looks she sticks to a specific color palate - black and white - making the entire look cohesive. She completes the look with flats and booties (she's obviously earlier in her pregnancy and her feet have not yet swelled to epic proportions yet OR she just bought bigger shoes)!

Here's how you can steal her style for less:
