Maternity Maven Blake Lively Is Now Pairing Sweats with Couture – and Still Looks Incredible

06/21/2016 at 03:00 PM ET

Comfort and couture may sound like an unlikely pairing, but Blake Lively has managed to find the perfect balance as she gets further into her second pregnancy.

The always-fashionable actress has solidified herself as a maternity wear pro, first gliding around the Cannes red carpet in dreamy gowns, and, now, taking on New York City in sweats and chiffon.

While doing press in Manhattan for The Shallows on Tuesday, Lively wore a Michael Kors Collection white feathered dress, which featured a sequin-covered bust. Her accessories included sky-high silver pumps and, surprisingly, a hooded zip-up sweatshirt. But just when you thought that Lively just threw the sweatshirt on because she was cold, it turns out that the designer himself encouraged the pairing: When the dress was shown on the runway during Kors’s Fall 2016 show, it was styled with that hoodie!

The relaxed outerwear choice comes just one day after Lively paired a Madewell denim jacket with Jenny Packham’s Runway Look #34 gown in Lime Fizz.

“I mean, it’s not a gooooown if there’s denim over it. Right?!?” the 28-year-old joked on Instagram.

Lively even bravely enjoyed what looked like a messy sweet treat in the look – a mid-afternoon snack she documented on Instagram.

The actress and husband Ryan Reynolds are already parents to James, 18 months, and are looking forward to growing their family even more.

“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” she joked on Today, Monday. “You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”

“…and still looks incredible”. What a sad statement for People to make about pregnancy in general. Women are at their most beautiful when they are expecting a little one! Geez

Pam on

Ya so practical lol especially her shoes. 😒 I agree elegant gypsy.

Sam on

What exactly is she in People for?

Vamanos on

Not. I hate when celebs (actually it’s obviously their stylists) mix casual clothes with dressy clothes. Like a ratty tank top with a beautiful skirt. Yuck. It makes me shudder.

Clean tennis shoes with a dress looks cute though.

Anna on

Elegant gypsy: the “and still looks incredible” is not refereing to the pregnancy but the sweatshirt. Like “she can pair a h.c dress with a sweatshirt and still look incredible”.
And for the ones asking “why is she on people ?” Well she is an actress, she is very famous and married to an extremely famous actor…and expecting his baby…what else were you expecting to find on this website?

Amber on

Thank you Anna!!! Someone with some sense. Geez.

Lisa on

At least she doesn’t have to be naked like that Kim chick Blake has class and is married to one of my favorite actors stop hating people it’s like they only wanna see a karstrashian then get mad when it’s just them in people and start talking about people with real talent real beauty geezzzzz

Stephie on

She’s just one classy lady!!!!

sarah on

She looked so stylish, loved her dresses.

sally on

Is it over yet??? This is going to be the longest pregnancy in history! Enough of this women!

Lyn on

I don’t understand the big push for her in PEOPLE. First you did a big blitz on Ryan Reynolds, now it’s his wife. WHY??? Even after having her face completely redone, she’s only passable looking and no great shakes as an actress. I don’t get the buzz.

Rachel on

What a misleading strange story. Never heard a zip-up hoodie referred to as sweats before. Totally assumed she was wearing sweatpants. Also, this has nothing to do with her being pregnant or trying to be comfortable, it’s actually meant by the designer to be worn like that.
