When it comes to pregnancy outfits, comfort is Queen. But that certainly doesn’t mean pregnancy can’t be a stylish and enjoyable fashion journey…
The key is to embrace your changing body and find clothing that makes you feel confident and comfortable. It also means finding the right brands, with well-made items, like flowy dresses, stretchy leggings, oversized sweaters and so much more.
London-based Seraphine is exactly that brand. Loved and worn by British royalty (Kate and Pippa Middleton are stans of the brand) as well as Hollywood celebs (including Gwen Stefani, Anne Hathaway, and Gal Gadot, just to name a few). And while the brand is excellent enough to attract such a stylish crowd, it’s definitely not the style of Seraphine to laud over-the-top hefty pricing. Their motto is “Every woman deserves to feel fantastic during her pregnancy”, which means offering their high-quality, fashion-forward maternity clothing at a reasonable price.
So whether you’re expecting your first bundle of joy, a seasoned mamasita looking for a maternity wardrobe refresh, or on the hunt for polished pieces for a friend, our editors have pulled fifteen fabulous items that are sure to show off that baby bump in style.
CLASSY & CASUAL
The term ‘casual’ in maternity wear gets a bad rap. Mostly due to cheap, shapeless pieces that at best look like you *tried* and at worst, read as downright frumpy. So let’s change that narrative, shall we? Starting with these five great staple pieces that are perfect for building your casual, but chic, wardrobe.
For the record, dark wash jeans in grays and black are on track to dominate the 2024 denim world (with Loewe, Dior and Diesel leading the charge). So getting yourself a pair now will give you instant off-duty fashion cred, even if all you pair it with is a simple white tee. Did we also mention this pair by Seraphine is made from super soft, organic cotton with an equally comfy stretch modal bump band? Yes, yes we did. YW.
Speaking of trending, it seems this year we’ll be experiencing some purple ‘reign’, namely in the form of one of S/S 24’s “it” colors – pastel lilac. Seriously though, even if it wasn’t on this year’s big color palette, we’d still be in love with this lightweight, wool-cotton blended beauty. Not only does the peplum shape effortlessly slide over your changing silhouette, this sweater sports easy open/close side seams, making nursing (literally) a snap.
Okay, we know. To paraphrase Miranda Priestley (a la Devil Wears Prada) – “Leggings? For pregnancy? Groundbreaking”. But hear us out…there’s a reason leggings are found in just about every expecting women’s wardrobe. They. Just. Work. Not all leggings are made equally though. These butter-soft, breathable, over bump leggings by Seraphine are seamless for maximum comfort. Perfect for light exercising, running errands, or simply relaxing around the house. And the rich, mocha brown makes for an ideal neutral to pair with just about everything in your closet.
What goes great with a great pair of leggings? How about this pretty, blush pink hoodie? Made from ultra-soft, stretchy viscose with luxe, brushed fleecing inside, it’ll be your new go-to, not just for your pregnancy but afterwards as well (thanks to discreetly added zips on each side that allow for easy nursing). What could be better? How about if it were on sale…

Finally, this one is just too cute to pass up. The stylish striped nautical sweater is made from soft cotton knit, and has the cutest heart motif to boot. It comes with side snaps for nursing access and…wait for it…it’s a matching set! Yup, this sweater comes with its own mini-me version that your little one can wear (sizing 3 to 6 months). The baby version even has buttons at the shoulder for easy changing. Wear them together and your high key adorbs factor is off the charts…

Business baby mama, we see you. Getting dressed up can be an exhausting experience on its own. Add to that the energy drain of growing your very own little human, and the daily ‘what am I wearing for work’ conversation can become overwhelming. Looking put together in a professional setting while pregnant comes down to keeping things quality, but comfortable. Here’s five options our editors found that wear easy while you stay stylish.
Starting with this great version of the #1 office staple – the white button up. Seraphine’s version keeps all the tailoring you expect in this solid staple. Then they cleverly add re-imagined elements such as two drawstring empire ties on either side, which allow for you to easily adjust the shirt width to your growing belly. The result is a fantastic piece that expands with you while keeping your silhouette crisp and clean.

What to pair with your button downs? Why, a business pair of trousers, naturally.

Made of sturdy but stretchy, high-quality twill these black office trousers are both easy wearing (anti-wrinkle) and easy to clean (machine washable). The legs are slim fit and tapered, with a smart pressed pleat at the front to complete the polished look.
This next piece is ideal for those busy mornings when you just need something that looks chic in a fast, one-and-done. The office-friendly LBD from Seraphine is made from soft and stretch jersey material, with ruching in the front for flattering your bump in style.
