Usually, when we see maternity clothes in advertisements, it’s all stretchy wrap tunics and comfort-fit yoga pants. As snuggly and comfortable as it is to dress like that all the time, for many women, we’re still hard at work well in to the second and third trimester of pregnancy— and no matter how comfortable your spouse’s T-shirt from college that’s gotten all stretched out might be, it’s still not workplace appropriate attire.
If you’re looking for maternity clothes with a professional edge, dresses are great— especially during the cooler seasons, when no one will suspect your cute leggings are covering the fact you can’t shave your legs! Nothing says comfort and elegance like the Mayreau Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Maternity / Nursing Dress. It comes in five fabulous colors, and has fantastic draping around the high waist to flatter your figure even after the baby is born! As if that weren’t enough, the drape of the cowl neck and the added detail on the wrists of the sleeves are all small, polished finishing touches that will draw the eye. And if you’re looking to have a few more date nights before the new baby comes, with a statement necklace or a bold pair of earrings, this dress goes from day to evening beautifully.
Sometimes, especially during the third trimester, it can feel almost impossible to regulate your temperature. One minute you’re freezing cold, and then after making it up a couple stairs you feel like you’re burning up. The super chic Orla Maternity / Nursing Dress And Jacket is made of incredibly breathable (and incredibly ecologically friendly!) bamboo that wicks away moisture quickly. Pairing an elegant long sleeve jacket with the sleeveless sheath was a stroke of genius that helps you regulate your own temperature. And the white piping on the scoop neckline and above the knee hem keeps it away from the traditionally all-black maternity clothes, and the hemline lets you show off your sexy legs!
