The chicest maternity wear is often the most expensive, and it's hard to justify major bucks for clothing you'll wear for less than nine months. But how about a 2-for-1 deal?
High-style maternity-wear company Isabella Oliver now offers the Duo collection, a line of stylishly reversible dresses, tops, and tanks. Made of light jersey, many with their signature (and so-flattering) ruching and wrapping, you get twice the wear out of these stretchy pieces. Although all styles come in multiple color combos, we love the black and white pieces for maximum versatility. Preggo-clumsiness made you spill coffee on your shirt? Slip into the bathroom, turn it inside out, and voila! No one is the wiser.
Our fave piece? The swing dress. Wear it beltless and with flats for a casual look -- or tie on the sash and add some heels for a wedding (and how cute is it that the contrasting material shows when you dance?) Then double those options by reversing it. Four looks from one dress? That splurge just became sensible.
The Isabella Oliver Duo collection includes the Sleeveless Wrap Dress, Geisha Wrap Top, Ruched V Tank, Empire Wrap Top, Ruched Tube, and Swing Dress, and retails for $140 to $240 at IsabellaOliver.com.
