Look for Less: Hilary Duff’s Casual Chic

08/30/2011 at 10:00 AM ET

She may be only showing a little, but we’re already swooning over Hilary Duff‘s mom-to-be style.

While running errands in Los Angeles on Aug. 25, the expectant actress strut her stuff in a chic neutral ensemble.

She paired Crystal Jin‘s sandstone Pleated Shoulder Cardigan ($380) with a burgundy top and cream jeans.

To round things out, she added a rose Balenciaga City bag ($1,445), gold bangles and reddish brown booties.

We just love Topshop‘s Maternity Scoop Neck Tunic ($28). Not only will the rich color play up your pregnancy glow, but you can wear it as a top or a dress.

A great way to accessorize your bump is with stylish, affordable jewelry. To take your simple outfits from plain to wow-worthy, we suggest ASOS‘s Wide Set of Bangles ($18.30) for a touch of tribal chic.

Who says soft pink can’t make a statement? Make one with Big Buddha‘s quilted Maddy handbag ($66.36). Even better: It’s so roomy it can double as a diaper bag when baby arrives.

Balance out your burgeoning belly with a pair of slightly flared jeans like Motherhood Maternity‘s Twill Signature Pocket Boot Pants ($40), which also come in gray, black and taupe.

Give yourself a lift with Nine West‘s sleek Lineup Booties ($55). They’re such a steal, you might as well snap them up in the four other colors (dark brown, black, black suede, taupe suede) available.

“Showing a little”?! Where? The sweater and purse are totally hiding everything :p

jessicad on

Why announce a pregnancy then constantly try to hide it?

Lissette on

I don’t think she’s trying to hide it. She’s just dressed it what she would normally wear. I don’t think she expected the paparazzi to be snapping photos of her or if not, she doesn’t care.

She’s not like Beyonce and going to be holding her bump for multiple paparazzi shots.

I live in LA too, and while it’s been hot this past week, it has been surprisingly mild the past few months. I usually wear a light sweater when I got out at night. Not to mention the fact that everything is air conditioned so it’s pretty chilly in restaurants and shops.

That said, I think it’s a really cute outfit!

Cardigans were my favourite things to wear while pregnant. I invested in several maternity tank tops in different colors and was able to carry a lot of my non-maternity cardis straight through the 9 months. Way cheaper than buying a whole wardrobe of maternity tops. All I really needed were jeans and pants for work after that.

Umm my name is not Lissette????? Wha?

Lissette – Public computer?

Lisette, I would try to change your name if possible because there is a Lisette on here who is very rude and negative and bashes children. Just giving you a heads up. I had the same thing happen to me. It was giving me a name that was not mine, but the same as someone else who was a basher on here I finally get it to say anonymous and I am leaving it that way because I don’t want to be confused with anyone else again.

Cute outfit!

I agree with Lissette, she’s probably doing her normal thing unlike the alleged private Beyonce who’s records sales boomed after her showy announcement (game, set, match!) Also, LA is not as warm as many people think. The weather is so mild there.

I still can’t believe Hilary is having a baby. I feel old 😦

Jillian on

Hmmm. Interesting. My name is not Jillian and I have never even entered a name while using this computer, nor has anyone. This computer is a few months old. I guess this site just assigns any name they want to you if you don’t sign your name and want to say anonymous. Just another way to try and bring controversy to the page.

Signed, Not Jillian
