As the months go by and the air grows a bit of a chill, our minds turn towards winter. Foliage, festivals and fun - it’s as if nature has set a reset button. And that’s what prompts us to set the reset button on our maternity clothes!
Gone are the days of lumpy cardigans and artsy knitted shawls. Today’s prenatal style is all about updating your pre-pregnancy clothes. Here’s where we come in with a tip that’s going to help you out for the colder months ahead - layering for maternity clothes!
The rules of layering are simple and finite. Fabrics need to be soft and comfortable, colours need to be complementary, and a silhouette has to be formed - no loose maternity wear here, thank you!
The key to mastering layering is investing in key pieces that you can build your wardrobe around. Take the Magnolia Pregnancy Top, for instance. Is it a jacket? Is it a top? Crafted from organic cotton, it’s highlighted by its two-tone construction - the woven top part and the cotton poplin bottom part. With its buttons that make this a perfect nursing top, you can layer this over a well-cut dress for an easy going brunch look or button it up and pair it with pregnancy trousers for a formal maternity workwear look.
Layering is not just for tops, though. A good shirt dress will stand you in good stead when it comes to layering up for the cold or just for style. We’ve got our eyes on the Cayo Shirt Dress for its versatility. Crafted from soft seersucker cotton with easy buttons, you can easily layer a paper-thin cardigan over it and create a fantastic silhouette by belting it at the waist.
Or, you could let the front buttons be open and style it as a jacket over a pregnancy tank top and a pair of bump tights!
If you’d like to push the envelope on maternity clothing, pair the dress with another dress. Pick a straight slip dress that could be worn over or under the Cayo, and voila! You’ve got a new look to wow with.
The possibilities are endless!
Wondering how to be on-trend yet comfortable? That’s where the Bundle Up Maternity Shrug comes in hand. Crafted from 100% pure cotton, the transitional piece can be worn open over a pregnancy cami top or can be belted at the bump and worn with high-waist trousers or maternity skirts. If you’d like to go the minimal route, just pair it over a simple dress - it’ll elevate your classic maternity dress to a whole other level!
