Generally speaking, being a bridesmaid and a mom-to-be are not usually the most stylish times in a woman’s life, but that certainly wasn’t the case for Ariane Goldman. After she created Two Birds, an adorable line of bridesmaid dresses that any maid would be honored to wear, this designing women gave birth to Hatch Collection. Inspired by the staples she wore again and again during her first pregnancy, Ariane—who gravitated more towards fashion forward brands like Acne as opposed to your traditional bun-in-the-oven gear—designed a line of beautifully draped dresses, tops and bottoms that were easy, elegant and comfortable while still being chic. In short, she’s built the perfect line of maternity clothes that you’ll be wearing long after your nine months are up.
We were so inspired by Ariane’s fresh take on style and motherhood, we had to asked this mom-of-one for a few of her top picks for a very stylish summer:
Best outfit for a summer night:
“I’m currently loving the HATCH Soiree Dress with my Chloe wedges. It’s casual but chic and an easy way to feel comfortable and stylish at the same time!”
Favorite way to cover-up at the beach:
“I love Lemlem’s sheer striped caftans. They are so light and breathe so well plus the stripes scream style.”
Weekend style staple:
“My Baggu grapefruit leather tote. It’s soft and malleable and I can throw everything in it!”

“No. 6 clogs!!” [Ed note: We also love their clog boots—super comfy and stylish, to boot!]
