Being pregnant is different for every woman. Everyone’s body changes in different ways. My best advice is to own those changes and embrace your new curves. One thing I have noticed while being pregnant myself is that there are so many brands, companies, and ads coming at you claiming you must have this that, and the other. Just like being a bride, being pregnant is temporary. I am very passionate about saving my clients money and time when it comes to temporary moments in their lives. Today I have compiled a few chic staples maternity pieces that will help you use your existing wardrobe at its maximum capacity.
Around month 3 regular leggings don’t cut it anymore. That band around your waist is cutting into you and a pair of standard black maternity leggings will change your life. I personally love these basic black leggings from Motherhood Maternity. I personally got 2 pairs! Bottoms and pants will become your most needed items quickly.
Versatile maternity jeans
I love a jean and T-shirt look even while pregnant. Finding a great mid to dark wash jean will be great addition to your wardrobe. Jeans can be dressed up or down making them perfect for some business days or casual weekends.
A midi-length skirt
The majority of my pregnancy was spent in the winter and I loved having this option. I could wear a T shirt knotted in the front or a sweater with a french tuck in the front. Not to mention a great option with boots! I found this one on Shein, very thin, it is from Shein but it still gives me the look I want without spending a lot.
A basic dress
This is one item that does not have to be maternity. Having a go-to dress, tight or loose that you can dress u or down with your new belly is very important. For me, I have loved a T-shirt dress or a body con style dress in black. I love this one from H&M or a simple A-line dress like this from Target
Comfy jammies for your growing belly
I completely underestimated how quickly I would grow out of my PJs. Even just having a pair of maternity pj pants will do wonders paired with a big T-shirt. Old navy has a lot of fun prints for two-piece pants and tops. If nightgowns are more your speed, I got the next size up of this Stars Above gown from Target. I love the fabric so much, so soft and comfortable.
I hope these pieces help expand your existing wardrobe so you can save your money for the more important parts of maternity like preparing for motherhood.
