You would probably say to a pregnant woman that she looks radiant and blooming, and it would sound like it's easy to look great while pregnant. However, it probably changed if you yourself got pregnant - then you see it's not a simple task to make yourself feel comfortable and elegant while having a big bump, especially if you want to feel smart and professional at work at the same time. But there are ways to achieve it; you just need to know a few tricks.
Every working pregnant woman needs to have a chic pair of black pants in her wardrobe. If chosen right, they should end right at the ankle, allowing you to show your elegant shoes. It is possible to find pants with elastic waist, so you can feel comfortable in them even in late pregnancy. If you feel ok in high heels, the effect will be even better. Just make sure that pants are mostly made of cotton, which is so much nicer to wear when pregnant, especially if your skin gets itchy because of the increased blood flow and frequent temperature fluctuations. Natural materials are the best choice.
Don't be surprised, it's possible and even preferable to wear pencil skirts while pregnant. Many women enjoy wearing them as they accentuate their bumps. If you are completely ok with your curves, then find a comfortable skirt and just go with it.
There is no need for you to change your style completely just because you are pregnant. If everybody else enjoys staring at your belly, it doesn't mean you are obliged to wear clothes that help them see it more easily. You can still wear the jersey or voluminous wool if you prefer it, or elegant loose coats and jackets.
A classic blazer gives you the feeling of power that you need at work. And it won't mind the bump. A blazer can be worn with almost anything, dresses or jeans, and everything looks instantly fit. It's even better if you can find a blazer with white piping that nicely contrasts with dark blue or black - you'll be a polished pregnant woman.
A crisp white shirt can easily be worn with almost anything and look smart whenever you want it to. It can see you through some late pregnancy months without any headache. If you think your hips won't look good with dropped waistlines of a shirt, try an empire line shirt with short sleeves.
Dark rinse jeans can be worn at work all day and then you can go straight to dinner out in them - they work both ways. The boot-cut silhouette is flattering for pregnant women and appropriate for work, too. Find the ones with a stretchy roll panel so it smooths the belly and you have a perfect outfit for a casual Friday.
The most famous dress of all doesn't have to be excluded from your current style just because you're pregnant. If you spend a little time searching for an ideal one, you'll manage to find one that is comfortable and chic at the same time. Whether you will go for lunch with your clients or have a presentation, this is the right outfit for many occasions. Start looking for the right one immediately.
Another piece of essential maternity clothing for many occasions, including office, is the cardigan. Some of them are tailor-made for future moms. They can be really chic and feel extremely soft when you drape yourself in it. Many cardigans look like high-end pieces of outfit, you just need to look for them closely.
This is an easy rule to follow - wear whatever you feel comfortable in, especially in the late pregnancy months, and then choose the perfect accessories. It can be many things - the right sunglasses or a skinny scarf that you love. It's easier to choose accessories that feel like you and your style than to look for all the right clothes that you can both be comfortable in with a belly and feel like it's your usual style. This is also the time to buy that perfect bag for work and let it shine. Astonishing and unique jewelry is another way to feel attractive and original. Just wear something simple and comfortable and then play with the details.
A search for great maternity clothes can be frustrating sometimes but it isn't reason for you to give up your femininity. It can be a fun exploration of different styles that maybe you haven't considered before for a working day but you could end up feeling quite attached to them in the end.
