Summer Maternity Fashion Essentials 2015

If you’re pregnant this summer and are wanting to create a summer maternity fashion essentials capsule wardrobe, this post is for you.

The key to creating a summer maternity capsule wardrobe is to think about what you feel most comfortable in, and what you will require to dress your bump in over summer.

If on holidays, seasonal dresses and shorts and tees will be perfect, but if you work through the festive season, a dress or pants and top combo will need to be part of your wardrobe.

When you’re pregnant during summer, you will most likely give birth in winter so choose garments that can be layered in winter so you can get double duty out of certain items. Black leggings and maternity jeans are winter essentials that can be worn sparingly over summer – if the weather allows it. Find pieces that have a roll waist to support your tummy.

When purchasing tops, think about whether you will be able to breastfeed in them and if they have enough stretch to fit over your bump in the third trimester.
