Shopping for a new wardrobe that won’t fit after a few months feels distinctly wasteful. Unless of course those new clothes are designed to last longer than the nine months of pregnancy: through myriad changes in body shape and fluctuations in weight, through breastfeeding and beyond, like Sussan’s fall winter maternity collection is.
Full of fashion forward, versatile pieces, Sussan’s maternity collection is designed to be styled with its regular collection. Post-pregnancy, you can keep wearing things like the flowing blouses, tunic tops and asymmetrical cardies. With the exception of tummy bands on the bottoms (which, let’s face it, we all wear for at least a few months after pregnancy) and extra space and length in some tops, this collection doesn’t look at all like maternity wear, which is really the highest compliment.
There are cute swingy tops ($99.95), fitted tees, skinny jeans ($89.95) and easy dresses ($119.95) which mean loads of outfit possibilities. This collection is prime for layering, particularly with the regular collection jackets, coats and those amazing hats that all the impossibly cool, Instagram-famous girls are wearing. There’s a cropped tan leather jacket ($499.95) I’ve particularly got my eye on.
You might think you can eke out another month from your normal clothes, but the truth is staring at you from your bare, probably chilly midriff: it’s time to buy a few things that are designed for your changing shape.
