A Winter Maternity Capsule Wardrobe for 2015

Dressing stylishly through your pregnancy can easily be done if you have a capsule wardrobe to work with. Even though pregnancy lasts 9 months, some of the pieces in this capsule wardrobe can be worn post baby and allows easy access for breastfeeding.

Don’t feel you have to shop exclusively at maternity shops for your fashion needs. Look at the cut and style to see if the item will fit around your bust and bump. Buttons and cross over necklines make it easy for nursing once your baby is born. I remember when I had my first baby and I bought a maternity wardrobe, not taking into account if the tops could be breastfeeding friendly. Purchasing pieces right at the start means you will save money and you will be prepared when your baby is born.

When looking for a  jacket to wear in winter, find jackets with a  waterfall drape that can allow your bump to comfortably protrude. Add interest to outfits with the use of simple jewellery and a scarf.

When it comes to choosing footwear during a winter pregnancy, always opt for a flat shoe or a shallow wedge. The ankle boots chosen here are versatile and can be worn with jeans and leggings.
