Maternity Wear to Work - dress well while you are pregnant
The shirtdress above by GAP is my current favorite maternity dress for the work place. Many of us will continue working while pregnant, up to seven or eight months along, or maybe even very close to our due dates.
I got to know a waitress pretty well because she worked at one of my favorite restaurants. Since the restaurant was a favorite of mine, I would see her often enough to get to talking more. She worked until 3 days before her expected delivery date. One day, I saw her and said, "I thought you had the baby already. When are you due?" She replied, "In three days!" She was actually happy to keep working because she felt that she needed the exercise during that time and wanted to keep busy.
Whatever our professions, pregnant women often need to know what fashion sources to turn to in order to keep looking our best while we work.
I am also a big believer in the idea that when you look good you feel good. (See my hub on the Steps for makeup application!)
When it comes to maternity work clothes, I like a tailored shirt that fits loosely in the belly area and is paired with trousers.
I most especially like dresses that end right above the knee, perhaps paired with dark colored tights. A dress in a wrap style is very versatile for tying tighter or loosening up, depending, as you (and baby) grow.
The gray argyle sweater, directly below, is a particular favorite of mine!
I hope this hub has given you some ideas as you search for your perfect maternity work wardrobe.
As you would see from this and my other fashion hubs, my preferred styles tend to be classic, but not boring.
Hope you liked these choices for maternity work clothing.

Wishing you a very healthy, safe, happy, and fashionable pregnancy!
