It’s one thing dressing the bump for a relaxing weekend at home or a special event, it’s quite another finding outfits that are comfortable, stylish and appropriate for a long day at the office. Think long hours sitting at a computer, racing from meeting to meeting and commuting in and out of your workspace – it’s no wonder expecting Mamas are always looking for stylish and practical maternity work outfits.
Working whilst pregnant requires quality maternity clothing that adjusts with you as your figure changes, as well as allowing you to feel comfortable for a long period of time (bonus points if you can continue to wear the items after your baby is born!)
Maive & Bo have designed a stylish new range especially for this purpose. Maive & Bo’s maternity work outfits are well priced, plus – thanks to their fast shipping policy – you can generally receive your items in only two days (three days for regional areas and New Zealand).
Here are some of our top picks from Maive & Bo:
- Maternity work dresses
Dresses are our number one pick for maternity work outfits as there’s no styling required – simply throw on and go – which is what you want if you have to be up early to commute. Maternity work dresses are often a more comfortable choice and allow you the freedom of greater movement throughout the day.
Maive & Bo’s Luella Maternity and Nursing Dress is such a stylish option for a maternity work dress. Featuring three-quarter sleeves, a mid length skirt and made in a gorgeously soft and stretchy fabric – this is one you’ll have on high rotation through the working week (and stylish enough for the weekend too!)
The best thing is the versatile nursing access that’s barely noticeable to the naked eye. A breastfeeding-friendly maternity dress means you’ll get extra mileage out of your favourite pregnancy work dress.
- Maternity work tops
A selection of comfortable maternity tops are our number two picks for a long day at the office. Interchangeable with any skirt, pair of pants or jeans, maternity work tops allow you to mix up your look each day whist staying comfortable and (of course) stylish.
Maive & Bo have only recently started making maternity tops and we’re loving their range – especially the nursing access that allows for post-baby wear. Check out the Flutter Maternity and Nursing Tops (in stripes or white) for an affordable $54 online or the newest favourite, the Navy Maternity and Nursing Top that’s sure to match most of your current wardrobe.
- Maternity work skirts
If you’re looking for maternity wear that can be worn for both the work day and the weekend, you can’t go past a maternity skirt. As a bottom, you can mix up a range of maternity tops to give a different look each day whilst using the skirt as a day-to-day staple. Then fish it out on the weekend and pair with a casual top or singlet for a day at the farmers market or lunch with your friends.
Maive & Bo’s Dreamer maternity maxi skirts for work and the weekend are elastic-waist, come in gorgeous prints and easy to wear casually or dress up. The maternity maxi skirts are full length, designed in Spring florals (as per Maive & Bo’s signature looks) and feature a clever shirred waist that grows with you as your belly expands, and back again once your baby is born.
Maive & Bo have a flexible return policy if you’re unsure on your exact size and they offer Afterpay.
