So let’s talk about maternity trousers. There is so much choice out there no matter what your shape and size which will take you through all the stages of pregnancy in comfort and with support and care.
Just take a look at these super supportive Tailored Trousers from Funmum. These are their best selling pair of maternity trousers, have a fully adjustable waistband and provide you with that all-important bump support. The great thing about these trousers is that they come in three leg lengths, in UK sizes 8 to 20 and are currently available with a 25% discount, so you can pick a pair of these for the bargain price of £29.25.........
Or maybe you're more of a skirt girl, in which case this comfy Black Linen Maternity Pencile Skirt from Jojo Maman Bebe is the choice for you. It's flattering shape is slimming around the hips and the cool linen material makes it perfect as a summer work outfit. This chic maternity skirt is available for £29 and comes in sizes 8 to 18.
This gorgeous top has deep button cuffs and belt loops to hold a thin belt over your bump. It looks fabulous worn with black trousers but can also easily be transformed from day to evening wear with addition of a pair of killer heels (if you still feel comfortable doing so) and skinny jeans. You can buy this maternity shirt for £66 but Crave are currently offering 15% discount when you spend over £60 with the code JUNE15P, as well as free delivery on all orders over £60.
If, however, your budget won't stretch far enough to afford this maternity shirt then there are cheaper alternatives, such as the maternity White Crossover Shirt from New Look. It is a fraction of the price of the one above, coming in at just £14.99 and with a tie-waist detail. The short sleeves make this the perfect maternity blouse for the summer months!
And so, to finish the look, because, as we all know, the UK weather just won't allow us to go without a jacket for too long, I've gone back to Crave for this Smart Button Front Jacket. This classic single breasted double button tailored jacket provides a formal workwear look while the detailing on the shoulder gives the jacket a contemporary feel. This maternity jacket is available in sizes 8 to 20 and is £90 but again the discounts I talked about earlier would apply.
This 3/4 length trench coat with six buttons and functional belt with metal buckle is perferct for the cooler weather. Functional pockets and shoulder and cuff detail make this the perfect coat.
It comes in at £119.95, again with discounts, and is available in sizes 8 to 14.
Now, in all honesty, for examples of fabulous maternity workwear I could have found clothes from any one of a dozen companies online and also available on the high street to show you because there is so much choice out there but I hope that the pieces I have highlighted here give you, if nothing else, an idea of the good quality maternity work clothing that's available.
