How to Build a Maternity Wardrobe

How to Build a Maternity Wardrobe

Baby bumps aren’t the easiest body shape to dress… unless you know where to look.


When I first started to show, it was late summer and I was kind of sad about not being able to wear all of the cute fall clothes. But thankfully after some research and trial + error, I found some great maternity brands and some non-maternity brands that work really well when it comes to bump style!


For me, a really good pair of jeans was the key to always having something easy + cute to throw on. I tried several cheaper brands at first (which ended up being more expensive than just buying the good pair in the long run) but finally settled on these. Yes, they are an investment. But mama needs to feel cute when she’s 8 months prego, ok? These don’t lose their shape AT ALL. The perfect staple for your fall wardrobe. I also grabbed a pair of black distressed jeans, and my forever go-to leggings. The leggings aren’t maternity but they are perfect for the bump and postpartum.


Most of the items in this catalog are maternity but for the ones that aren’t- just size up! You will find a lot of neutral basics that are easy to mix and match with the layering pieces. Just like your non-maternity wardrobe, make sure you have plenty of neutral basics that can easily be mixed, matched, and layered with more statement pieces.


Here are my 3 favorite ways to wear the jeans. 


When you click the SHOP button below it will take you to a catalog of all of the finds and a lookbook of ways I created outfits from the finds.Use the catalog to directly shop my tried and true finds or use the lookbook as inspiration. You can click between the two once you open the link!  When choosing your maternity wardrobe, a capsule will most likely suit you best. I would suggest starting with the following:


3 neutral tees

1 cute/fun/printed top

2 layering pieces

1 plain dress (so that it can be easily layered- change of shoes, layer, and accessories will make 1 dress into SO MANY outfits)

1 pair of dark jeans

1 pair of leggings

1 pair of black pants or jeans

2-3 pairs of shoes


I hope that the these finds and look book will inspire you to dress your bump this fall!
