After a ton of pregnancy rumors that turned out to be false, this time it's the real deal. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child. Duchess Catherine has become quite the style icon, causing dresses to sell out in a matter of minutes just by stepping out in a particular fashion. Chances are she'll do it all over again with her maternity dresses. Although she clearly has excellent taste, there are several dresses she may want to consider sporting during her pregnancy.
Issa Silk Jersey Wrap Dress
Issa is one of Kate's favorite brands, and she even wore a navy blue silk-jersey dress by the brand when she and her now-husband announced their engagement. This black Issa Silk-Jersey Wrap dress is similar to the style she wore during the big announcement, but this one has some slight style differences including a tie at the front. It retails for $680.63.
ASOS Maternity Exclusive Maxi Dress in Grecian Drape
This long, sleeveless ASOS Maternity Exclusive Maxi Dress in Grecian Drape is comprised of flowing stretchy jersey fabric and has a slight V-neckline, a high waist, and a tie that wraps around to the back. The mauvewood color is ideal for spring and summer and a lovely way to incorporate some bright color to the wardrobe. It retails for $79.16.
Alice by Temperley Long Panama Dress
The beauty has worn a number of Alice by Temperley dresses in the past, and this long turquoise Panama Dress by the brand would look lovely on her. It's designed in a Grecian style, has pleated fabric, and is tighter on the top while loose-fitting on the bottom. The $520 dress allows for Catherine to remain comfortable while still keeping her fabulous style.
DVF Linda Dress
The fashionista has worn DVF several times in the past and is a fan of pastel-colored dresses, so this DVF Linda Dress is perfect for her.
