For expectant working mothers, having a professional maternity wardrobe is very important. One wants clothing that is comfortable and functional while maintaining a great sense of style and work appropriateness.
Maternity dresses are a fabulous option for the workplace, as they are easy to wear, fashionable, and professional. With several great maternity designers, there are many beautiful work dresses available for the expectant mother.
Japanese Weekend is an incredibly popular maternity brand, known for their contemporary, functional, and comfortable maternity clothing. Stylish and classic, their maternity dresses are great for office wear. One dress in particular that works beautifully in an office setting is the Scoop V Maternity/Nursing Dress. Available in a rich eggplant color or classic black, it is perfect for the fall and winter months.
Made of a bamboo and spandex combination fabric, it is incredibly soft and stretchy, making it perfect for all stages of one’s pregnancy and beyond. Layering at the V-neck is flattering and the empire waist is very slimming. With its easy nursing access, it has great versatility and can be worn for a long time.
For the office, pair it with flats or heels, tights, and a cute cardigan when it gets cooler. If one is heading out after work, it can be easily dressed up with funkier heels and great gold jewelry. Another fashionable and functional maternity work dress is their D&A Cross Front Maternity/Nursing Dress.
The beautiful charcoal color pairs well with classic black pumps or flats. The V-neck is elongating but not too revealing, and the crossover front provides great nursing access while also creating a beautiful silhouette. Add a cute black cardigan or fitted blazer to complete the look. Contemporary and comfortable, Japanese Weekend’s work maternity dresses are an excellent choice.
Fashion forward designer Maternal America is another great source for work maternity dresses. They combine the latest trends with classic and comfortable designs, creating gorgeous looks for the workplace. One hot selling dress this season is the Scoop Neck Front Tie Dress. It comes in two color combinations-a black spandex and herringbone, or a navy blue and jeans combination.
With its lycra scoop neck bodice and empire waisted skirt in the contrasting color, it is incredibly figure flattering. The ¾ lengths sleeves are trendy and very work appropriate. Stretchy and soft, it will keep one comfortable all day long. The adjustable front tie sash adds style and allows the dress to be worn throughout one’s pregnancy.
Pair it with black tights and heels for the perfect office outfit. Maternal America’s Knit Cheetah Dress is another stylish work maternity dress option. This animal print dress is done in shades of blue, making the abstract cheetah print work appropriate. A V-neck is flattering, and if it feels a bit too open for work wear a navy camisole underneath.
The ¾ length sleeves and knee-length hemline are very work appropriate, while the cut of this comfortable dress is figure flattering. Pair it with navy suede flats and one’s hair pulled back into a low bun for the perfect office look. With their fresh and fashionable designs, Maternal America’s work maternity dresses are a great option for the office.
Versatile, easy to wear, and fashionable, work maternity dresses are a must during pregnancy for the working mother. As important as the dress is the styling of it, and there are several things to keep in mind. Make sure that the dress is not too short. Keeping it near knee-length is work appropriate.
If one feels a bit exposed, wear a black, opaque tight to complete the look. Depending on one’s office environment, both flats and heels are appropriate, as long as the heel is not too high. A cute cardigan is a great addition if the office is a bit cooler, and also completes the look on a sleeveless dress during the fall and winter months. Keep one’s jewelry simple and classic, and the perfect office outfit is created. No matter one’s personal style, the ease and comfort of work maternity dresses will make them a favorite piece in one’s wardrobe.
