Emily Ratajkowski Gives a Celebrity Maternity Staple a Cool Girl Update

  • 6603

Since announcing her pregnancy in October, Emily Ratajkowski has been proving that maternity dressing can be modern and sexy. Ratajkowski gets points for originality—who else would debut their bump in one of Aya Muse’s slinky cutout dresses?—but she hasn’t strayed from the sultry signatures she’s always loved. Case in point: her latest ensemble, a skintight tie-dye piece from Kim Shui, was precisely the kind of look you’d expect from a style-conscious runway star.

Ratajkowski’s long-sleeved jersey dress would have looked right at any occasion, but worn at home and paired with comfy, chain detailed sneakers, it was a cool girl’s take on loungewear. The dress’s purl stitching added visual interest, but the combination of bold tie-dye pattern and body-hugging silhouette made the outfit memorable. Head-to-toe print is an artful way of accentuating a bump—think of Kim Kardashian West’s now-legendary 2013 Met Gala gown or the floral embroidered Michael Kors that Blake Lively wore for her first red carpet post-pregnancy announcement back in 2015. Ratajkowski skipped the flowers but kept the concept and managed to be impossibly chic from the comfort of her living room.
