It can be a bit of a quandary, can’t it? Finding clothes that are comfy enough to accommodate your bump AND be smart enough for the office? Well, thanks to the great range of maternity workwear that’s now available, your problems have all been solved!
Stylish separates are always a great option for maternity workwear. Trousers will provide you with the comfort that you need but can be dressed up to keep you looking super stylish in the office too. Just take a look at these well-cut trousers from www.next.co.uk
These cigarette pants from Isabella Oliver have to be among the best maternity trousers ever! These trousers have a slim cut that will elongate your legs, but it’s the softness of the fabric and the under-the-bump waistband that you’ll love the most.
These black ankle grazers from Jo Jo Maman Bébé, meanwhile, will give you a contemporary edge while being simple to style.
The slightly shorter length shows off a hint of skin, instantly elongating your legs and flattering your figure, and you can easily team the trousers with a tailored jacket to complete the ‘suit’ look, or add a simple shirt such as this one from www.newlook.com to play up the minimalist look.
If you prefer to go down the mini skirt route, then pair it with a fitted maternity top, or opt for a warm, woolly, baggier top. Check out this look from Séraphine.
For all trousers and skirts it’s a good idea to keep it simple with plain styles – you can never go wrong with black! – which you can then lighten up with a range of brightly-coloured tops and accessories. See how Jo Jo Maman Bébé used pale green to great effect (above)?
The wrap style is always a popular option for maternity workwear. Classic wrap dresses, such as this one from Dorothy Perkins provide a smart but simple option for the office, while a brightly-coloured wrap top such as this one from Isabella Oliver will brighten up any trouser suit or classic-cut trousers. A fixed wrap and V neck feel totally flattering, while the tie detail adds support and a stylish twist. It’s a total everyday hero.
