Gorgeous Maternity Pieces, That Can Also Be Worn Postpartum
Just because you are pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal style. Gone are the days of wearing muumuus and stretch pants because nothing else fits. There are many beautiful maternity brands on the scene that are creating stylish pieces that can also be worn postpartum.
One of our favorite maternity brands is Hatch. Their collection is full of simple and elegant dresses, easy bottoms, cute tops, and even gorgeous coats! While this label is on the pricier side, we like to think of their items as investment pieces because they can be worn during pregnancy and after baby is born. This Bateau Dress caught our eye immediately. We love the light chambray color-block design, perfect for trips to the farmer’s market or to be worn on your baby-moon.
We are jumper-obsessed right now and this Walkabout Jumper does not disappoint. The short sleeves, slit-seam pockets and tapered leg makes this jumper a must-have, for casual events or a romantic dinner with the soon-to-be-daddy. We think this piece is truly perfect to wear during and after pregnancy – it is just so chic!
Asos has also designed a line of maternity clothes that are cute, fun and well-priced. This Skater Dress is one of our favorite pieces from their collection for it’s awesome style, stretch jersey fabric (so comfy!), and versatile design. This dress can be worn to the office or out for lunch with friends, day to night. Pair it with some converse sneakers and sunnies for an ultra-stylish look.
Every woman has a go-to pair of cozy jeans in their closet. Now that you’re pregnant, you can transition into these adorable ripped boyfriend jeans. We love the distressed denim and jersey waistband for maximum comfort and support. These are definitely a staple piece for every expecting mama.
A Pea in the Pod is a long-time favorite shopping destination for pregnant women. They consistently curate great maternity brands on their site season after season. With an array of guest designers and labels, there is something for everyone. We particularly love this Moto Jacket by Rachel Zoe. The exposed zipper adds a little edge while the structure is effortlessly cool. This too can be worn postpartum.
Check out this Splendid skirt! The design and color combo are perfection. Splendid is known for their soft and comfortable fabrics, which makes them perfect for maternity wear. Paired with a white tank and denim jacket and you are instantly fashion fabulous.
When shopping for maternity wear, make sure to find pieces that are comfortable, fit your frame, and will grow with you as your belly grows. If it can be worn after baby, that is an extra awesome bonus. Stick to staple pieces that can be mixed and matched with other items in your maternity wardrobe, and you’ll be ready to rock for your entire pregnancy. Plus, no one will notice your outfit much, as they will be too distracted by your mommy glow.
And for all of our pregnant friends: Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your little one, mama!
