Giving up most of the clothes that make me feel like me for the past couple months has been tough! Thankfully, I’ve been able to hang on to a few pieces of my old self while incorporating a few new silhouettes to get through the third trimester. The key has been to mix and match a few basic pieces and rely heavily on shoes and accessories to change it up. And, of course, leggings are a girl’s best friend!
Luckily, I was able to wear my own clothes for about the first 25 weeks, so my capsule wardrobe didn’t really have to span across several seasons. This capsule wardrobe reflects pregnancy in the winter season.
As you can see, my narrow choices are fairly versatile. I am super minimalist! I am keeping my main colors in the green, blue, and black family with a few other pops of color thrown in. Most of the pieces are everyday clothes with roomier cuts. There are a few other pieces I weave into the mix here and there, but these are the pieces I’ve relied on the most: Two long-cut striped sweaters, three solid-color sweaters, a plaid button-up (which I’m honestly just about going to have to retire in the last few weeks), three tunic tops (two with fun patterns), a coat, a rain jacket, and three pairs of pants.
My go-to accessories have definitely been scarves, boots, flats, and different bags. If you play your cards right and mix and match well, no one will know you are only getting by with 14 articles of clothing during pregnancy! 😉
