Wait - Has Kim Kardashian Discovered the Best Possible Maternity Uniform?

Ever since announcing her pregnancy with baby number two, Kim Kardashian has started a trend. Surprisingly, it doesn’t involve stripping down and showing lots of skin. Instead, Kim’s proving her baby bump is her greatest accessory by flaunting it with body-con dresses and jumpsuits. But her go-to maternity uniform doesn’t end there.

Kim’s covering her skintight, yet undeniably comfortable outfits with duster coats. They’re lightweight enough to provide an extra layer – that won’t make Kim break out in a sweat – but they’re also a fashion girl’s wardrobe staple, making for chic throw-on-and-go street style ensembles. And, just because Kim finishes her looks with statement heels, doesn’t mean everyone has to. In fact, we actually think her practical two-piece ensembles are totally versatile.

Read on to see them all, then let us know: did Kim just discover the BEST possible maternity uniform?

12 Outfits That Prove Cher From Clueless Is Taylor Swift’s Style Icon

Clueless hit theaters 20 years ago this month, but that doesn’t mean the fashion we saw in the film is completely outdated. In fact, one of our favorite style stars, Taylor Swift, seems to borrow more than a few tricks from the movie’s main character, Cher.

Between her love of plaid, thigh-high socks, and the occasional hat, Tay often fits right in with the movie’s too-cool high school crew – and we mean that in a very, very good way. Keep reading to see 12 times the star totally channeled Cher when she got dressed in the morning.

25 Reasons Summer Is a Fashion Girl’s Favorite Season

When we list all of the reasons we love Summer – s’mores, picnics, beach days – we often skip over one very important fact: that it just so happens to be the best season to express our style. Gone are the coats and boots that were weighing us down through the chillier months, and here are the colorful, breezy pieces we’ve been dreaming about since the leaves first turned all those months ago.

How to Feel Confident in Your Swimsuit – at Any Size

After curvy model Tess Holliday launched the #SimplyBekini movement, inspiring women of all sizes to show off their bikini bodies, writer Gabrielle DeDivitis shares her tips and tricks on how to feel fully confident poolside – no matter what your body type.

For as long as I can remember, I was self-conscious to put on a bathing suit and head to the beach. I would wear clothes with as much coverage as possible in order to hide my body from whoever might be silently judging me. But over time, I realized that nobody else’s opinions of me should even matter. Weighing my body down with oversize swim shorts and full-coverage tankini tops is just not practical when it comes to trying to stay afloat in the water or get some sun. When I finally learned how to gain the confidence to hang out by the pool without hiding behind a big hat and pair of oversize shades, I gained an unfamiliar sense of freedom.

So how did I learn to embrace the body I have? Keep reading for a few tips on how to work what your momma gave ya!

Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas’s Couple Style Will Make You Fall Madly in Love With Them

When Cara Delevingne Instagrammed this adorable photo of Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid chilling in a pair of stylish coats, we couldn’t get over how perfectly coordinated they looked. “Introducing G.I. JOE @joejonas @gigihadid #GIJOE,” Cara wrote, combining both of their names into one. “Yes,” we thought, acknowledging the fact that Gigi and Joe were both wearing fashionable outfits finished with leather, this is one hot new couple with a lot of street style cred.

This isn’t the first time #JonasHadid, as their fans call them, stepped out in twinning looks. From casual day dates to red carpets, it seems like Gigi and Joe check in with each other before they get dressed, and we don’t mind one bit - not when they end up looking like this.

Scroll through for all the times Gigi and Joe wooed us with their matching ensembles – including the moment Gigi flaunted their new nickname proudly on a graphic T-shirt – and turned us into the smiley face emoji with the hearts in its eyes.
