New parents Nicole Richie and Joel Madden now have their hands full with baby Harlow Winter Kate Madden, born on January 11, 2008. Here, just before delivery the duo are seen spending some hand-in-hand street time! Nicole masters the mono-chromatic , urban mama-to-be street look with slim fitting leggings, layers and accessories that really give the look some definition and pop. This fool-proof look allows you to dress for almost any weather and take advantage of many pieces that will later live on in your post-maternity life!
Here is what to keep in mind when stealing Nicole Richie’s “Street” look Forty Weeks Style:
*Layering is an important tool of pregnancy dressing. It is essential to keep yourself cool-looking and cool-feeling. Choose pieces that offer great coverage and comfort. Keep in mind that the better the fabric, the better the fit.
*This look can go sleek and chic or boho on the street –- your accessories define the statement you will make.
*Choose one focal point element per look, don’t overdo it. Too much of a good thing will take away from the desired effect.
*Keep scale in mind — Nicole dresses for her petite frame — be sure to do the same. Too big (anything) will overwhelm certain frames. If “big and bold” is on your list, make your mark with a bag, glasses or another accessory.
Steal That Look Forty Weeks Style – Taking It To The Street
Street fashion is meant to feel good! The vibe is casual and the goal is fun! Look for comfort above all — that means great, easy fabrics that have got you covered! Use the best basics (we mention a few here) as building blocks. Next, layer in color, texture and certainly some of your own signature favorites (think bag, glasses, shoes) to complete this anything but basic bump look!
NOM’s Maternity Legging is a super soft, well-made (meaning, this one will go the distance) basic black legging perfect for layering under almost any look. I would grab a few! (CBB Deal: $48 plus save 15% with code CBB)
The feminine details of this Liz Lange for Target Long-Sleeved Smocked Solid Tee ($17) make it a simple, yet flattering piece that works well with just about any basics. Use this as a stand-alone or layer under jackets, sweaters, wraps — you name it! Bump, shoulder and bust-line rouching flatter your new shape. Additional design elements such as a deep scoop neck keep it fun!
Exclusive to Due Maternity is the scoop neck tee. They call it perfect — and it is close to that! Due’s signature super soft cotton is combined with subtle detailing (this one has a flared wrist cuff) and great fit for what will be a staple of your maternity wardrobe — consider this one in garnet, expresso and white as well.

Oliver People’s Ilsa Sunglasses ($340) are certainly chic and completely splurge-worthy! These oversized black shades make the look – making a big and bold statement about the mysterious glam goddess that you are! These will take you well into motherhood — and will fit perfectly now and later!
Nordstrom Knit Tube Capelet ($68) is an essential must-have. The lace knit detailing adds an amazing layer of texture and color that really creates polish and adds some extra wow to any look. Shown here in black, this killer knit also comes in oatmeal — which is a delicious and inviting shade that complements many skin tones.
