THE MATERNITY CAPSULE CLOSET

Our simple style guide to dressing for working mums-to-be

Dressing for an ever-growing bump and the office is tricky. You don’t need a whole new closet, but what you do need are staples that work well together, can be dressed up and down, and are great quality (so they stay looking good when on constant rotation). Here’s what to buy. The wrap dress. Your versatile new best friend. Will flatter your bump at every size, and a simple change of footwear takes you from business meeting to brunch. The tops. A striped tee and classic white shirt are both super chic and go with everything. The bottoms. A black skirt and pants. Workwear no-brainers, then just add sneakers for a cool weekend look. And finally, good underwear. Supportive, comfortable – and the bras have drop-down cups for easy feeding when your baby comes along.
