Looking polished and put-together while also rocking a growing baby bump can be a little tricky at times, but totally doable with the right office essentials. If you’re not willing to sacrifice on style or comfort and you’re determined to look professional during office hours throughout your pregnancy, then here’s a little guide featuring four stylish maternity outfit suggestions for the chic mom-to-be!
Look 1: V-Neck Shirt + Slim Black Pants
Whether you opt for a classic white button-down or a steel blue top with a thin V-shaped neckline, this outfit is an elegant choice that can’t go wrong in any work environment. Simple, chic, comfortable and perfectly put-together, this type of outfit is certainly a staple you should have on repeat throughout your pregnancy. Matched with a pair of slim maternity pants in either navy or black, with medium heels and with the optional structured blazer, this combo is a timeless choice that translates perfectly in any kind of job, be it the case of a formal or a creative one.
Look 2: Draped Blouse + Tulip Skirt
If you were thinking that opting for office-ready skirts was an undoable task during your pregnancy months, then this chic maternity look will certainly change your mind. This outfit is a great alternative to the pencil skirt looks that some moms-to-be might find too constrictive: grab a tulip-shaped skirt with a subtle cowl draping and pair it with a comfy and loose draped top. Next, add a pair of peep-toe heels and the optional suit jacket and voila: perfectly stylish from head to toe and ready for work!
Look 3: Classy Retro Shift Dress + Pumps
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect maternity dress that can work in a formal office, then here’s an option that can become the go-to piece of your pregnancy wardrobe: the retro-cut, 60s-inspired shift dress, featuring a sleeveless cut, a high neckline and a perfect-for-work above-the-knee length. While empire waist dresses are certainly a great choice throughout your pregnancy, a shift cut is less structured, thus offering you more comfort while still looking streamlined enough for the office.
Look 4: Front Sash Cardigan + White Shirt + Slim Pants
A three-piece look that looks polished, on-trend and elegant, regardless of your work environment: a front sash cardigan that can perfectly accommodate your growing belly, a simple white maternity top and a pair of slim pants. Whether you opt for a classic suit jacket with a front sash or an alternative printed cardigan like this polka dot piece, opting for this type of maternity design is definitely a great choice if you are planning on wearing your jacket throughout your pregnancy, as well as after giving birth. Paired with an empire waist top or a basic jersey blouse and a pair of maternity pants with an elastic panel, this maternity outfit is a must-have in any chic mom’s wardrobe.
