Staying smart for the office with the addition of a baby bump needn’t be a challenge. Here are three easy ways to approach your new working wardrobe to get the most from your new purchases and flatter your growing figure.
Wear now, wear later
Anything that has a button front now will be handy later on if you breastfeed. Look for double-duty trousers to get extra wear from them for work and weekend outfits.

Office to evening
Get the most from your capsule maternity wardrobe and choose a basic dress you can glam up for evening and wear smart for work. If you love your heels go for a chunkier style for comfort and pack flats in your bag for the commute!
