Getting dressed for the office is a tricky one whilst pregnant. With comfort at the forefront of every pregnant lady’s mind, there is the temptation to clad one’s self exclusively in soft jersey fabric for nine whole months. Resist that urge.
Compromise stretchy separates with smarter, stiffer fabrics for a more pulled together look. Steal your husband’s work shirt, roll up the sleeves, cinch with a skinny belt and pair with a pencil skirt. Shift dresses can be smartened up with a undone blazer and even do double duty as evening outfits. Pile on the accessories to brighten up an otherwise subdued outfit – you can always wear the necklace even once the bump is long gone.
