The world is anxiously awaiting the reveal of her wedding dress next month, but in the meantime, Meghan Markle just stepped out in a white dress that’s perfect for daytime spring and summer occasions that are a little more low-key than a royal wedding. After months of cold weather in the UK, we’ve gotten used to seeing Markle bundled up in sweaters, trousers, and coats, but since spring is in full swing, we’re finally getting a glimpse of the future royal’s warm-weather style.

The dress that Markle stepped out in today for a reception with Prince Harry is by Altuzarra, and she accessorized it with a crossbody bag, pumps, and a blazer draped over her shoulders. The pinstriped and belted dress features a trend that we think is classic enough to ensure that it’ll be around for awhile: big buttons. (For context, this detail is currently adorning tons of tops, dresses, outerwear, skirts, and even swimwear on the market, but it was Khaite that really set the trend in motion.) We love that Markle certainly isn’t a slave to trends, but she does seem to want to embrace ones that are more subtle and timeless than, say, the vinyl and PVC trend.

See Meghan Markle’s latest look and shop the trend below.

One perk of my job is that I travel a lot. This means I’ve had a lot of time to master the art of packing a carry-on, figure out the fastest way to get to the airport (which actually isn’t all that fast in New York), and most importantly learned exactly what—and what not—to wear. All it takes is one red-eye pretzeled in an exit-aisle seat to know your outfit choice can make a pretty big difference.

My first key bit of advice: slip-on sneakers. This TSA-approved footwear choice not only makes navigating security a breeze, but it’s also ideal for subtly sliding under your seat without the fear of having to fumble with shoelaces or fitting swollen post-flight feet into anything remotely high-top. Second, the clothes I choose my outfit using the stretch test. Doing a few quick lunges and an arm reach, I always calibrate: Does my bra ride up? Do my pants squeeze? Does my jacket constrict? If the answer to any of the above is a yes, I immediately abandon my choices for something comfier.

If I can get away with it, the stretch test means that the majority of my travel outfits are basically a lesson in head-to-toe athleisure. Sweats, a sports bra, and a cozy sweatshirt are all designed with comfort in mind, which can make a world of difference seven hours into a transatlantic flight. If I need to look a little more polished post-flight, I’ll make sure to have a cool jacket handy and to wear jeans that I know are stretch enough to keep me happy. Below, I’ve highlighted a few styles that will pass the stretch test with flying colors so you can make your next flight just that little bit less miserable.

Before you leave the house and head for the airport, take a minute to do a few lunges, arm swings, and other stretches to ensure your travel ensemble won’t cause any problems.

Your favorite yoga gear is just as great for trying to fold your way into your airplane seat. Available in sizes 1X to 4X.
A hood is a great way to avoid awkward eye contact.  Available in sizes XXS to XL. 
No awkward shoe-lacing issues here. Available in sizes 8 to 12. 
A long-sleeve tee is ideal for when it gets chilly mid-flight.  Available in sizes XL to 4XL. 
Head-to-toe black looks sleek while being awfully comfy. Available in sizes X to 4X. 
If you’re forced to run through the airport, you’ll be just fine in these. Available in sizes 1X to 3X. 
Should you need a more polished piece, this coat does the trick. Available in sizes X to 4X.
These jeans are surprisingly comfortable. Available in sizes 23 to 32. 
A sweatshirt is a key layering piece. Available in sizes XXS to L. 
Slip-on sneakers with a fashion-forward bent. Available in sizes 5 to 11. 
Sporty and oh so cool. Available in size XS. 
Two words: cashmere pants. Available in sizes XS to XL. 
Who says a sweatshirt has to be boring? Available in sizes M to XL. 
We love a good sports bra. Available in sizes XS to XL. 
Hot tip: Try velour. Available in sizes XS to L. 
Sweats that are actually chic. Available in sizes XS to L. 
A tee that can handle even the longest day of flying. Available in sizes XS to L.  Now you’re all set to travel in style.

Pregnancy is a beautiful and joyous occasion for any growing family. However, aside from the celebratory occasions, it’s safe to say that most soon-to-be parents simply want to be comfortable and well-rested. And with the warmer weather quickly approaching, you’ll probably be needing some casual maternity outfits to make getting dressed quick and easy.

To get the best style advice for you and your changing body, we asked Louise Roe, who recently gave birth to her daughter earlier this year. See how Roe styled herself during pregnancy and the advice she has for expecting mothers.

“Mastering your maternity style can be tough, especially for a first-time mom. You’re learning what works best for your new body and can often feel self-conscious when choosing items for your ever-changing shape,” she shares. Roe explains that while she didn’t buy too many maternity-specific clothes for her pregnancy, she did have a few foolproof pieces in her closet. “Maternity jeans—my trusty Madewell maternity jeans were a lifesaver in my third trimester,” she says. Roe also looked to long-fitting boyfriend tees and tunics, adding that the trick is to find tops from your pre-pregnancy days with stretch or length to cover your bump.

Now shop our favorite everyday pieces on the market to add to your pregnancy wardrobe.
