Blake Lively’s Maternity Style Hack May Be the Most Creative Thing You’ll See All Week


Since announcing her pregnancy in September 2022, Blake Lively has been sharing parts of her journey on Instagram, clever maternity style tips included. Taking to the social media platform this week, the actor, who is expecting her fourth child with husband Ryan Reynolds, offered up an ingenious wardrobe hack for a problem most pregnant women can relate with.


The 35-year-old shared a picture of herself wearing a long dress, which, in fact, was a black skirt paired with a polka-dotted number unbuttoned at the front to frame her baby bump. With both pieces serving necessary functions, Lively spared herself a wardrobe mishap while making a strong case for getting the most out of your existing wardrobe even with a baby bump. “When the back of your skirt won’t zip and the front of your dress won’t button, wear both,” Lively captioned the photo. “Who says two wrongs don’t make a right??” The Gossip Girl star completed the outfit with a pearl necklace and coral heels.

The actor offered another glimpse into her pregnancy last week when she shared two before and after pictures side by side, in which she is posing next to her trainer Don Saladino during a workout. “Been doing @donsaladino’s workout program for months now. Something isn’t working,” she joked. In November, Reynolds told Entertainment Tonight in an interview that their three daughters are “ready” to have a new sibling. “I’m very excited,” he said. “We’d have to be. You know, you’d have to be a moron to do this four times if you didn’t like it. It’s gonna be nuts, but we’re very excited.”
