One Maternity Essential, Three Ways

Master the art of casual chic during your pregnancy with the super comfy joggers.

When it comes to building your maternity wardrobe, there are a few things to consider before making any new purchases. Will this item be comfortable? Will it make me feel stylish and pulled together? Will it grow with my changing shape as i move through the many phases of motherhood; prenatal, postnatal life and beyond? And will I get a return on my investment? Enters the jogger, also known as track pants, sweatpants, pull-on pants and cozy running pants.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: the jogger? That’s for the sporty mama running from yoga to pick-up. Well, mama… I’m here to prove to you that the jogger is much, much more than that. It’s versatile and, with minor styling tweaks, can make you look chic AF. Plus, it’s stretchy and comfy, which means that it’s perfect for your bump!

Case and point: from an everyday to a going-out look, here are 3 ways you can wear your joggers during pregnancy and beyond.

DAY-to-DAY LOOK

Joggers are a perfect everyday casual style, and it’s really comfortable for expectant moms who don’t feel like wearing maternity jeans, but who are looking for something a little more elevated than just leggings. Pair with an on-trend belt bag from Steve Madden, this colorblock puffer from Topshop, and fashion sneakers from Keds. And voila.

While joggers are more relaxed in fit, you can pair them with a more revealing top, like this velvet cami from J.crew, this stiletto heel from Sam Edelman, this faux fur Topshop coat, and these global inspired gold earrings from Shashi to create a more sexy evening vibe.
