I last featured this skirt here styled with chambray and nude sandals, but have also loved it in various other combinations like this dressier black & white pairing! I was actually inspired by this two-toned dress – instead of spending more on maternity clothes, I figured I could recreate the look using (non-maternity) separates in my closet!

The Most Versatile Skirts (bump-friendly!)

Stretchy elastic-waist skirts are some of the most comfortable and forgiving pieces I own. Uniqlo makes a few affordable options – I first reviewed this pleated long skirt back in this post, and there’s also a classic midi circle skirt option with an elastic back. I own an older version of the circle skirt (see it on me) and can attest that it fits well (XS works on a 24″ waist), is fairly wrinkle-resistant, plus has convenient pockets!

You can style these skirts mindlessly with a tucked-in striped tee and flats (instant Parisian-chic), or dress it up with a drapey blouse for the office For maternity wear, my favorite way as of late is to pair them with a slightly cropped top or a shirt tied over the waistband!

Statement Scalloped Sandals

I have an older pair of Sam Edelman scallop sandals (with a nearly flat heel) from years ago that I adore. It took some willpower to resist these higher block-heeled versions, but I eventually caved! The Odila sandals are super cute, and come in a whole array of colors and leather types. I almost always gravitate towards neutral, skin-toned shoes, but loved how the black color really highlights the scalloped edge. The wider heel is comfortable given the height, and the overall fit is true to size. I waited a few months for a sale,  this style has unfortunately always been excluded from promos.

Finishing Touches

Inspired by my inner Audrey, I finished this look with these retro-inspired cat eye sunglasses. Le Specs has been one of my favorite brands for sunglasses under $100 that still look and feel good quality. One of the features I tend to look for is very slim and sleek arms, which in this case looks especially nice in a gold finish.
