Congratulations! With a little lucky (or intentional) timing, you’re pregnant in winter, which is honestly the best time to be pregnant. You can rug up in lots of luxurious layers, there’s no need to navigate the world of maternity swimwear, and best of all, it’s not even a little bit hot or humid.
We’re always on the lookout for beautiful, local maternity clothes, and this season, Australian high street brand Sussan has some gorgeous outfits for expectant mums. A constantly changing pregnant body means it can be really tough to pin down a flattering personal style, but with a few carefully chosen pieces, you’ll have a full maternity wardrobe that will take you from work, to dinner somewhere special, to weekends out shopping for the nursery.
The collection mixes basics with investment pieces like the Leather Biker Jacket ($499). It’s not technically maternity, which means you can wear it open over things like the soft stretchy Maternity Grey Drape Jersey Dress ($119) while you’re pregnant, and then with all your cool new mum gear after baby’s born. If you’re looking for something a little more affordable, the Winter Biker Jacket ($69) does the trick as well.
You’re going to need some good off-duty looks, but they don’t need to be boring. Pair some essential wardrobe staples like the white Maternity Tank ($29.95) and Maternity Denim Leggings ($55.97) with a cozy, fashion-forward gilet ($109.95) or long cardigan ($99.95). And by the way, a good pair of maternity jeans will be a serious workhorse for your whole pregnancy, so you might want to get a couple of pairs.
The Sussan maternity collection is so versatile, day looks translate to night with a quick change of shoes from sneakers to heels, some sparkly accessories and a good handbag. If only getting dressed was always this simple.
