As you welcome the blooms of spring-summer, here’s the ultimate list of summer workwear clothing for the stylish mother-to-be. Take a look!
Whether you are a working mother-to-be or you are a homemaker, comfortable clothing is crucial throughout the course of maternity. Creating a wardrobe of maternity clothing for working mothers-to-be might seem like an arduous task in hand, but in reality, it is quite easy to achieve. And to make things easier for you, we have listed down the must-haves that will keep you sorted for the entire run of summer on the style and maternity comfort front.
While you are enjoying the blooms of summer and soaking in the Vitamin D of the sunrays, you might enter into your office with temperatures that of a polar axis. A cardigan will help you feel warm even when your colleagues are enjoying the freezing breeze of the air conditioning. If you ever feel like you are getting a hot-flash, you can simple take-off the wrap-around cardigan without having to make a visit to the powder room. If its benefits were not enough, a cardigan also works as a stylish cover-up that is bump friendly and stretches to accommodate your growing belly.
Style Tip: Invest in light-weight solid toned cardigans and style them with a simple brooch pinned to one of your shoulders.
Cropped Wide Pant
The most comfort an expecting mother seeks is around her belly. Lowers that are comfortable are a must in every maternity wardrobe. Keeping up with this requirement, a pair or two of cropped wide pants emerge as being vital for the working mother-to-be. Whether your job requires you to be on your toes for longer hours, or you need to make decisions sitting behind a desk in a 9 to 6 job, cropped wide pants match perfectly! Get your cropped wide pants to fit well with room for stretching around the waist area. And while you’re at it, decide on the length of the crop that works best with your officewear ethics.
Style Tip: Cropped Wide Pants in darker shades like grey, black and ink-blue are versatile and can be styled with every kind of upper-wear. Ante up the style by stylising your wide pants with a pair of kitten heels to give more structure to the look.
Boyfriend Button-Down Shirt
A dry-cleaned button-down shirt can be considered as one of the most classy workwear garment that never goes out of style. While you would have worn a well-fitted version of a button-down shirt, the maternity wardrobe requires more volume in its silhouette. A boyfriend button-down shirt in the cotton fabric is well-fitted yet spacious and is adaptable to provide you comfort throughout pregnancy and post-pregnancy. Depending on the colour schemes acceptable at your workplace, you can invest in solid-hued boyfriend button-down shirts with a black version and a white version as a must. This piece of the garment also offers experimentation with prints if your office is up for some added quirk. If yes, then play around with small geometric, floral and abstract prints for a more vibrant look.
Style Tip: To avoid these oversized shirts to make you look bulky, pair it with a pair of leggings or denim for a more structured overall style.
If you want a more structured approach towards layering or your job demands a serious dress code, then a sleek summer jacket should be your go-to coverup. Give into the finest of the seams, a great fit around the arms and waist silhouette that rests well to make you look fitter yet not compromising on the comfort at all. Being a summer jacket, you need to invest in one that’s light in weight and doesn’t demand a lot of care.
Style Tip: Black should be your go-to colour for a summer jacket. If allowed, you can pair it up with button-down shirts or blouses in solid vibrant colours for the perfect harmony.
Sheath dresses are straight, seamless and silhouetted to perfection. By giving in extra efforts towards finding the right fit for yourself, a sheath dress can amplify your workwear style manifolds. Not to be confused with a waist-pinching pencil dress, sheath dresses are body flattering sans being too compressed to wear. Opt for a peach solid hue and pair it with your black summer jacket, or simply go ahead and invest in a couple of striking colours and prints that go well with your office dress code.
Style Tip: Pastel hues are a big hit at the moment apart from sunrise yellows, ocean blues and lavender tones.
Always remember to invest in maternity clothing which is stretchable if need be in order to accommodate the growing belly. Look out for colours and prints that you would like to flaunt even post-pregnancy so that the investment doesn’t turn out to be just a one-time affair.
Trust this list will now help you get work-ready, keeping your modish approach checked and yet provide you with the best of comfort around the clock.
