Pregnancy is a difficult time from a sartorial point of view, as your body is changing, adapting your wardrobe becomes a must.
As daunting as the idea of shopping for a short term wardrobe may be, investing in some key pieces can be a big help to make you feel like you are maintaining some control over your style.
A good neutral dress is key, it does not have to be a maternity dress, brands like Cos and Arket make dresses that can be worn throughout pregnancy and reused
Maternity jeans are the most important item to invest in. Low inset are great for the first part of pregnancy as full bands generally slide down until your bump is fully formed. I would advise on getting three pairs which are versatile and interchangeable. They can be paired with a loose jumper, a shirt and flat slip on shoes. I love a good boyfriend denim, a dark straight pair and a cropped bootcut pair.
Flats are always the best but especially during pregnancy. A statement flat works well in pregnancy with simpler clothes like a pair of jeans and t shirt. I love a good embellished pair of slip ons to lift an outfit
A leather jacket can really get you through as it looks great open. The perfecto look in particular is quite flattering as it is cropped. If you are pregnant during the summer, a slightly short denim jacket will also work well.
