Here at Maive & Bo., we love a good wrap dress for expectant mothers. Whether it be for a special occasion,a maternity photoshoot, or simply everyday wear, the wrap dress is the go-to style that never fails to flatter the female form in the most natural way.

And oh yes, our newest wrap dress style perfectly meets that expectation.

Introducing The Marley Wrap Dress in Santorini.

Bright, statement making, playful, and right-on-trend, pregnant or not, this is one of those styles thatall women can appreciate.

In particular, we know you’ll fall head over heels in love with the trendy mix of blue and white stripes, with a bold floral print in shades of fire engine red and tropical orange.

Yes, you read that correctly: with this little number, we’re mixing prints, and it certainly pays off.

Sound like your cup of tea?

We don’t blame you! For those of you who are lusting after this new wrap dress, here are five ways you can style this baby, so you can look your absolute best all throughout pregnancy.

1) Throw It Over a Swimsuit

If you have plans to hit up the beach throughout your pregnancy, we always recommend investing in a wrap dress.

In particular, the Marley Wrap dress works perfectly for the beach, because the style has a more relaxed aesthetic about it than some of our other wrap dresses. Plus, what screams beach style more than florals and blue/white stripes? Not much, in our opinions.

Grab your sunnies, a pair of slides, a sunhat, and you’re ready for ice cream on the boardwalk, a sunset stroll by the water, or even a nice lunch overlooking the ocean.

Pretty dreamy, right?

2) Dress It Up For An Event

On the other hand, while this wrap dress can easily be dressed down for the beach, it can also be dressed up for an event.

While it may not be suited for a more formal evening event, it’s perfect for brunch, an afternoon wedding, or even the Melbourne Cup.

To give the dress a bit more of a style edge, pair it with some low heels or wedges. You can stick with a standard tan or neutral shoe, but you can also feel free to really up the style factor by throwing on some bright red or orange strappy sandals to pick up on the vibrant pops of colour throughout dress.  

Oh, and don’t forget your matching clutch! And feel free to throw on some lipstick for an extra punch of colour.

3) Wear It For a Christmas Event

Speaking of events…

With the Christmas season just around the corner, we couldn’t help but mention how perfectly suited the Marley Wrap Dress is for Christmas parties.

With the playful pops of red throughout this dress, you get that perfectly festive Christmas time flair, but without the style seeming too over-the-top or overtly seasonally themed.

Having said that, though, for Christmas, feel free to add in some sparkle by way of your accessories, pop on some red lipstick, and voila, you’re totally ready for any Christmas party that heads your way.

4) Wear It For The Everyday

One of our favorite parts about this lovely little wrap dress is how perfect it is for the everyday.

Because sure, you can most definitely dress it up with heels and accessories, but if you’re looking to take it easy during your pregnancy, and you simply want an easy-to-wear dress that will make you feel beautiful, this is it.

For days when out and about, style it with a sunhat to keep the sun off your face. You can also throw on some strappy sandals for a look that’s all about fun in the sun.

Or, if it’s one of those days that are maybe less glamorous and more about running errands, throw on your most comfortable flats, grab a crossbody purse, throw your hair in a pony, and you’re ready to go.

5) Wear It Post-Maternity

Speaking of versatility, we also couldn’t help but let you know that this dress can be worn post-maternity. Because of its wrap style, it’s completely nursing friendly, which is a bonus for mamas who are always on the go.

In addition, because this dress is made from rayon, you’ll find the fabric falls very naturally, has stretch, and is thick enough to help you feel great about that beautiful post-baby body.

So go ahead, snatch up this wrap dress.

While we love all our wrap dress styles, we’ve got a feeling that the Marley Wrap Dress is one that is going to be on constant rotation in your wardrobe all year round.
