The clothes you wear during pregnancy are pretty much a capsule wardrobe by definition. Unless you’ve got a bottomless wallet, you want to buy the least number of things possible since you’ll only be wearing them for a few months.
This capsule wardrobe of maternity clothes will build multiple outfits for a week or more.
Maternity clothes capsule wardrobe
To take you from casual weekends to days in the office, I’ve mixed T-shirts and denim with comfortable knit dresses and separates, like a basic pair of black pants. (As a martial artist, I couldn’t resist the Ninja in Training tee.)
As for the shoes: yes, they’re more practical than fabulous. But for every mama who walks through her pregnancy in stilettos, I think there are more of us who waddled through in comfortable shoes!
This capsule can also form the basis of a maternity wardrobe for the 2nd and 3rd trimesters–or whenever your baby bump requires the extra room. Add a few more of each type of item and you can get dressed for months.
