From bump to baby: How to rock maternity style in the office

Congratulations – chances are if you are reading this article you are a mom-to-be and are looking for great ways in which to incorporate your brand new pregnancy status into your office wardrobe to help you look great while feeling comfortable through every stage of your pregnancy. Pregnancy is a wonderful time, with the beauty of a brand new baby into your family just around the corner, but it can also be tough on new moms, especially while in the office. With morning sickness and tiredness, you will want to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible.


First trimester:

While in the early days of your pregnancy you will want to keep your wonderful news to yourself and keeping going in the office can be a little more difficult throughout these early days. If you work in an office where business style is the dress code you will want to accommodate your pregnancy in these early days of your first trimester with some comfortable yet smart maternity pants. These will see you through right from early pregnancy when you just feel bloated to later in your pregnancy too. Pair these with a variety of different tops which will help to keep you comfortable and stylish.


Second trimester:

As your pregnancy progresses you will want to ensure you are comfortable and a pregnancy camisole top will go with any outfit and work well under a pregnancy blouse. Many pregnancy camisole tops also double up as nursing tops and will work brilliantly when breast feeding.

One of the more comfortable options when you are pregnant is a maternity dress and come in a variety of shapes and sizes which means they suit any body shape and will also grow comfortably with your bump. Maternity dresses are great no matter the season and also work brilliantly for any formal events that you might have coming up while you are pregnant too.

Your second trimester is definitely the time where your body will start changing and you might start to need to purchase your maternity clothes. When in the office you will want to ensure you have a number of maternity office tops on hand which work great in a business environment. Wrap over tops are comfortable throughout your pregnancy will work well in the office as do belted tops which all look great paired with your maternity pants.


Third trimester:

As you get into your third and final trimester of pregnancy you will want to make sure your feet get enough comfort and your shoes definitely will play a huge part in that. A pair of comfortable ballerina flats will help to keep you comfortable and stylish with your office attire. In the colder months a pair of flat ankle boots or flat knee high boots will look great with dresses or skirts.
