Is there anything cuter than a matching set? Maybe, but a well-fitting, stylish matching set has got to be up there. I would happily fill my closet with matching sets if I could. It is such a cute style and you can mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet to create even more looks!
I fell in love with this bohemian matching set while shopping a few weeks ago. I hesitantly grabbed it to try on thinking to myself, “really Natalie… a crop top and skirt while you’re pregnant… this is not going to turn out well”. Logic would tell you that partially baring your midriff at 6 months pregnant might not be the brightest idea. Well, fashion is not always logical. I know this outfit might not be for everyone, but I love it.
I remember when Kerry Washington rocked a bedazzled custom Prada crop top with a skirt on the red carpet while pregnant (and pretty far along if I remember correctly). This was only a few years ago and it made such a style statement and caught so many people’s attention. Now the outfit I’m wearing is no red carpet Kerry Washington moment, but hopefully it inspires you to branch out with your style. Sometimes the things you think will never work on you end up being the best surprises!
The key to pulling off a crop top matching set is to make sure you are not showing too much skin. I love this bohemian style one because the sleeves are long and the skirt is long yet shows just the right amount of skin. The crop top has a bit of a plunging neckline and the skirt has two slits that look so good when you walk!
Pregnant or not, the elastic waist band on this skirt is amazing. It allows the skirt to hug you in just the right place and if you want to pig out, you won’t feel constricted. The great thing about this set is if you don’t want to show skin at all, you don’t have to! The bottom part of the top also stretches so you can pull it down to meet the top of the skirt or even overlap the waistband of the skirt. Personally, I think a little sliver of skin makes the outfit more flattering.
What are your thoughts on this matching set? If you love it, now is the time to get it! It’s currently 40% OFF making the entire set under $70. I have already paired the skirt with a tee and plan on wearing it with a sweater once it gets colder! Shop this set HERE.
