Maternity Monday’s Workwear Report: Alexandra Maternity Dress

ALEXANDRA MATERNITY DRESSI think if I had an unlimited budget and were building a maternity wardrobe from scratch (and planned on having at least two kids) I’d want to start my shopping experience at Isabella Oliver — everything they make seems so professional, flattering, and sophisticated, it’s hard to compare it to hardly anything else out there considering so many brands think pregnant women want either bodycon dresses to emphasize the bump or hipster slouchy dresses with voluminous fabric. This black maxi dress is unusual for Isabella Oliver in that it’s not your typical knee-length sheath dress, but I kind of like it, particularly for a tall pregnant woman. I think as styled here, with tall boots, a prominent belt, and black tights, it looks great and professional enough for a casual day at even conservative offices. The dress is part of a big sale they’re having — it was $188, but is now marked to $111; use code DRESSTEN to take another 10% off any dresses.  Alexandra Maternity Dress

Maternity Monday: Olivia V-Neck Maternity Sweater

maternity sweater for work This maternity sweater for work is winning rave reviews — and purple IS the color of 2018. The neckline may feel a bit low, but you can always raise the neckline with a camisole or a demi-camisole or a substantial necklace, like pearls. The sweater also comes in black, and is $68.  Olivia V-Neck Maternity Sweater

Maternity Monday: Cowl Neck Short Sleeve Maternity Dress

PattyBoutik is a brand we’ve featured before because it’s always very highly reviewed on Amazon (this one has 4.4 stars with 400+ reviews) and it’s always really affordable. This dress comes in five colors in S–XL and looks like a great basic style if you’re looking for something to dress down or dress up for work. PattyBoutik Mama Cowl Neck Short Sleeve Maternity Dress

Maternity Monday: Lace Maternity Dress

Ingrid & Isabel’s popular shirred maternity dress has pretty much always been available, certainly since I was pregnant, and is still available today. This is a nice holiday take on that style, and while lace can be less accessible for an office environment, this would be great if you need something for holiday parties, and in a subdued color with a cardigan over it, you could even make it work to expand your work wardrobe while you’re pregnant. It’s really affordable as well — $98 at Nordstrom — and you can wear it to baby showers, parties, and so forth. It comes in nine (!) colors and patterns and is hand washable (i.e., possibly safe for the hand-wash cycle on your machine). Ingrid & Isabel Lace Maternity Dress

Psst: Amazon’s Black Friday deal of the day for toys is on games and puzzles from Ravensburger — including the game Bugs in the Kitchen, which my 6yo likes a bunch.

Maternity Monday: Drape Front Blouse

This bright fuchsia blouse from ASOS looks fun, and it’s machine washable, too. ASOS has a lot of really cute maternity clothes right now, but it’s hard to find styles that have multiple sizes still in stock. This one is $45 (with free shipping and free returns) and comes in sizes 2–16, almost all of which are still available. Note that it has a button/keyhole neckline at the back. ASOS Maternity Drape Front Blouse

Maternity Monday: Shirred Maternity Dress

This maternity dress by Ingrid & Isabel has been around for years, and I highly recommend it. We’re featuring it today in the plum, but it also comes in black, gray, navy, and other colors. The boatneck and long sleeves and ruching make for a classic style, and this will definitely stick around for multiple pregnancies. I think you can wear it while pregnant, during postpartum, and possibly even beyond. It comes in sizes XS–L. Shirred Maternity Dress

Two plus-size options are this long-sleeved dress and this three-quarter-sleeved dress from Pink Blush Maternity.
