There’s a lot of mean talk when it comes to maternity clothes.
They’re too expensive.
They make me feel old.
They’re so dull.
And while this may be true for some, I’ve only just started dipping my toe in the maternity clothes section and can say that’s not true for all.
I think the problem many of us face when it comes to maternity clothes is how to work them in your wardrobe and keep things interesting without feeling forced to wear the same leggings and oversized top day in and day out.
There’s a cure for this and it involves building a workable maternity wardrobe by buying clothes that can mix and match with ease.
No matter which way your style leans – whether it’s more feminine or trendy, classic or boho – if you want to avoid feeling uninspired by your maternity clothing options, be sure to invest in things that will work with each other in a variety of ways.
Dresses that can be worn casually or easily glammed up for a night out.
Leggings and maternity jeans that can intermingle with various tunics, sweaters, and knit tees.
Also, don’t feel as if you’re banned to only shop the maternity section.
Which will be easier said than done by your 3rd trimester, but for 1 and 2 don’t be afraid to explore options outside of designated maternity clothes.
Depending on the cut, you may find “non-maternity” clothes work just fine if you go up a size or two to accomodate your growing bump.
The point is you can totally have a closet with cute, comfy maternity clothes that you’re happy to wear for the next 9 months.
And to prove it, I’ve brought back an oldie but goodie – my 20×20, the preggers edition.
This is where I take 20 pieces and create 20 outfits to help you with outfit inspiration.
And to prove you don’t have to buy everything under the sun to have fun in your closet – even when you’re pregnant!
Every item (besides the shoes) are used at least twice!
I definitely could’ve came up with more, there are truly a variety of options, but I stuck with my favorite combos.
So without further ado – lets take a look at the 20×20 pregger edition!
20 pieces x 20 outfits – Maternity Clothes for the Everyday Mom-to-be
I kept the options cute but casual, things you could totally wear everyday depending on how casual your work environment is (if you’re still working).
I’d definitely be up for making a more professional version for moms-to-be working in more professional/corporate environments.
Drop me a note in the comments or send an email if you’re interested 🙂
And finally – the outfits!
There you have it! What do you think?
I have a confession before you go…
I thought I did every item twice, but upon review I realized I only did the maxi dress and stripe tee once.
But nonetheless you get what I was going for right?
Now I’d love to hear from you!
Which is your favorite look?
We’ll chat about it in the comments.
