Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed their daughter Violet in late December, and I am certainly going to miss seeing her maternity style—it is one that will inspire for years to come! Blake is the epitome of Hollywood glam, and she wowed us every week of her pregnancy with amazing ensembles, most of which came from Preserve, her lifestyle blog and shopping site. Preserve is dedicated to highlighting artisans who make everything from clothing to furniture. It is a truly beautiful site and a must-see if you haven’t already checked it out. While I do love what Blake is doing in the blog world, I wouldn’t mind seeing her return to TV! Who else out there misses Serena van der Woodsen?
We often saw Blake sporting amazing coats and capes around NYC. She paired them with shorter skirts or tighter fitting pants to show off her amazing legs. This showstopping cloak designed by Lindsey Thornburg is sold on Preserve.
Blake often wore pieces that can be found on Preserve—here’s another amazing cloak by the same designer.
To duplicate Blake’s look, start with a statement coat or cape. Choose a bold print, and wear it with a simple, solid dress or pants underneath. This graphic faux fur trim cape is from ASOS.
How cute is this tribal woven cape, also from ASOS?
You could also switch up the look with a solid button cape. Wear it with prints underneath to add interest to the outfit.
Pair your cape or swing coat back to a skinny pant or a dress of your choice. We often saw Blake wearing above-the-knee styles. This classic maternity little black dress would look great with any cape or poncho.
I’m loving this butterfly print maternity dress, especially with spring right around the corner.
This is an adorable shirt dress that would be great worn with a cape.
The final piece you need to get Blake’s look is a pair of tall boots. This flat boot by Loeffler Randall is a very close match to the style that Blake was often seen wearing.
We also saw Blake wearing slouchy boots—try this pair from Steve Madden.
There you have it…the fool proof recipe for Blake Lively’s maternity style!
