Work It: 4 Office Appropriate Maternity Dresses

You’re expecting, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your professional style. And when it comes to buying maternity dresses for work, it’s less complicated than you might think.

Follow these simple guidelines: Keep it simple and clean. Invest in ‘staples’ that you can dress up or down. Always remember that solids are less memorable than prints. And never underestimate the power of a tailored maternity dress.

Maternity dress from the Gap

Below are our four favorite dresses for moms-to-be who refuse to sacrifice style, comfort or professionalism during their pregnancy.

Isabella Oliver’s Black Wrap Dress

No one does the little black dress like the maternity mavens at Isabella Oliver. Though Oliver’s collection is an embarrassment of riches, we recommend the adjustable wrap dress. This ready-to-wear staple “redefines comfort at every stage,” growing with you throughout your pregnancy. And, perhaps, more importantly, it’s fitted, flattering and fail-proof. Additional bonus: It’s perfect for post-pregnancy as well. Though somewhat expensive, it’s the ideal addition to any office wardrobe. ($100-140)
