This must be a challenge now facing pregnant working women heading into autumn as office clothing is typically made of non-stretchy fabrics. A good place to start is the perennial office staple - the shift dress. Your new LBMD. Simply add a crisp white collared shirt underneath for an instant corporate look (you can even leave it unbuttoned underneath - no one will ever know). Layer a tee in the same colour over the dress for a sleek sleeved style or change it up with a cowl neck top. Add a jacket or cardigan over the top as it gets cooler. Play with accessories so you don't feel like you are wearing the same thing each day. Add a silk scarf or borrow hubby's leather belt and wear it at the empire line.
A collared wrap dress is the perfect combination of chic and professionalism. The wrap style lets you tailor the fit for your bump - and dresses are great for getting ready quickly in the morning as your outfit is complete.
For those that like to mix and match, a pencil skirt or a classic pair of black pants is a must have in the world of business attire. Discreet side stretch panels hide that they are indeed maternity trousers. In fact, these days there are maternity equivalents for all your basic office wardrobe pieces. There are also gadgets available to allow you to wear your regular clothes for longer. TummyTies and Adjust-A-Button extend your pants and support belly bands can be worn under regular tops and hide the gap as you'll find your tops are becoming shorter.
Don't feel compelled to stick to dark colours. Pregnancy is a special time of your life. If ever there was a time to buy that one special on-trend piece - it's now. In-between morning sickness and having to work, that one special piece that you want to wear everyday will make you smile and feel fabulous.
