A few weeks ago I shared my first fall/winter capsule wardrobe and several of you told me how you would like to see a similar capsule made with maternity clothing. The more I thought about that request, the more I realized how helpful that would have been to me a few years ago when my boys were on their way.
At what other point in our adult lives do we have a need for a brand new wardrobe than when baby is on the way? I remember feeling frumpy and uncomfortable. I tried to be frugal and buy inexpensive pieces, but without a plan my wardrobe was fragmented and I never really felt well dressed. It shouldn’t be that way!
So I took my fall/winter capsule and adapted it to include similar maternity clothes. I kept non-maternity layers, like my denim jacket, that can work before, during and after pregnancy. Many of the items I selected are from Amazon to make it even easier (did you know Motherhood Maternity sells thru Amazon!?!).
As I share outfit ideas several times a week, you can always swap out the non-maternity pieces for the similar maternity pieces to make a great outfit. If you want to receive outfit ideas straight to your inbox, subscribe to my email list:
Maternity top options are so cute these days – it almost makes me want another little one myself! I had so much fun picking tops for this capsule.
Sweatshirt (lots of color options)
Gray Hoodie (nursing top too)
With one exception, all the layering items are exactly the same as those in my non-maternity capsule. I did swap out the wrap cardigan for this one designed for maternity and nursing, since this is the only layering item that I usually wear closed.
The rest of the layering items are straight out of my fall/winter capsule wardrobe, which means you can use them after pregnancy too.
There are SO many outfits you can make with these 24 items! Here are a few examples:
Do you like these outfits? They are all based on my fall capsule wardrobe, swapping out maternity items in place of similar non-maternity items. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more maternity outfit ideas from the capsule.
