Guest Blog: Summer Maternity With Workchic Style

This guest post was written by Jennifer and Melissa of Workchic helps dress women for work by offering suggested outfits, fit guidelines, tips and tricks on how to look professional, feminine and chic. Check out the Workchic blog for tips and trends!

It’s hot, you're uncomfortable, and work still insists you dress business casual. What’s a chic mom-to-be to do? Don’t worry, we have you covered.

Wear a bright summer dress that ties in the back to adjust for your growing belly and layer a tank underneath. This will make the look less revealing. You can accessorize with slingback flats, multi-colored earrings and a woven handbag to complete the business casual look. Pair it with leggings when running around on the weekend. Dresses make getting ready in the morning easy, especially if you have another little one already running around.

Our second business casual look starts with twill boot cut trousers. Secret fit belly should make sitting at your desk all day slightly more comfortable. Pair with a loose fitting summer print and wrap cardigan to fight off AC chill. We kept you in flats and matched them up to the cardigan. Accessorize with a brightly colored bracelet and finish with a warm grey bag.

Lastly we have an outfit for more casual days in the office. This is very similar to the last outfit, but paired up with denim. The tops are also more fitted which will show off your belly a little more, so avoid if your office is more conservative. We still recommend a cardigan in case you catch a chill and this deep purple shade is seasonless. We paired with comfortable loafers and an oversized ring.

We hope these looks will help you stay comfortable and fashionable this summer in the office. Consider buying items a size up, especially earlier in your pregnancy so that they do not become to tight to quickly. You may also need to purchase shoes one size up. We recommend sticking to flats and play with color like we did to stylize your summer wardrobe. If you don’t like anything hovering around your neck accessorize with earrings, bracelets, and statement rings instead. Oversized tote bags will also be great before and after the little one arrives.
