Maternity Style File by Marinke: The Striped dress
Marinke Davelaar is New York based, madly in love with her Lawrence, and very well established within the fashion photography. But besides snappin’ her way through the most amazing fashion events in New York, she’s often found back in Holland. You may already recognize her work since she is responsible for capturing all the special moments for Prêt à Pregnant, The Mom & The Dad. From Janine’s cool mommy’ looks to the well known Rally Events. It’s all Marinke. And we are so proud to have her on our team.
She has always been part of the Prêt à Pregnant team, but now in a very special new way, because… she is expecting! Soon she will welcome her first baby. Her baby bump is growing a bit bigger every day and in her Style files she will share her favorite maternity looks.
When you are expecting a bump hugging dress is super comfy to wear and you can display your blossoming bump to the fullest. Marinke loves most to wear dresses as well during her pregnancy: “Since my pregnancy I’m so much more into dresses! They are so comfortable and seem an easy choice when I don’t know what to wear (those every day struggles… ;).”
This season we see a lot stripes and a striped dress is a true must-have in your wardrobe (pregnant or not). In today’s Style File Marinke wears a blue and white striped dress combined it with a pair of Isabel Marant sneakers and a red Chanel bag: “They say stripes make you bigger, but I don’t think this is really the case. I really love this striped dress, that’s easy to wear casually like here, with some sneakers and a nice color pop bag.”
Since fall has really arrived bare legs are too cold these days. Wear the dress with a pair of maternity tights and keep your belly extra warm. You can also switch the sneakers for heels or a pair of loafers. Finally add a warm cardigan or coat to your look and you are ready to brave the cold.
