Essential winter basics.

Top 5 essential autumn winter maternity basics for mum to be

That's your autumn/winter wardrobe sorted

Black is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe, and never more so than when you’re pregnant – slimming, versatile, practical. Here are our essential winter basics worth investing in – they’ll solve your “I’ve got nothing to wear!” panics and work post-pregnancy too.

The perfect foundation –  Amoralia’s Cupcake bra and brief
This bra gives a lovely round shape, is supportive (even up to a G cup), features pretty graphic lace over silky microfibre, and is cotton lined for total comfort. The discrete nursing clips open one-handed for easy feeding and there’s a comfortable matching lace brief with a sheer lace back for a little sexiness. Available in 32-38 (C-G) at £34.50, brief S-XL at £18.00

Nice pins – Isabella Oliver’s opaque maternity tights
An essential for the colder months, with the added bonus that they’ll hide any thread veins, smooth out hormone-heavy thighs and support your growing bump. They also have an aloe vera finish that moisturises your skin for up to 20 washes. £25.00

Working girl – tailored black trousers from Blossom
Ok, they’re pretty pricey, but well-cut, good quality black trousers are always a great investment – I’ve still got a 10 year old pair from Therapy that look box-fresh! Add a chic blouse or a pretty wrap top and some cute flats. Sizes XS-XL at £134.00

Show your curves – Mama la Mode’s twist front dress
This slinky jersey dress is THE LBD to see you through the winter months and Christmas season. Layer a long sleeve polo neck underneath during the day, or wear on its own with some chunky jewelry (LOVE this investment piece from Holly Fulton) for a special night out. And if you need any more persuasion…it’s just gone on sale! Sizes S,M,L now at £59.00

Take the pressure off – Flat knee-high boots from Office
These gorgeous boots are nailing the equestrian trend. The enclosed shape is great for supporting your feet whilst you’re still pregnant, and if you’ve already had your little one, their low heel means you can run around after them… Sizes 3-9 at £115.00
