One of the perks of working from home during the pandemic was being able to wear whatever we felt like (at least from the waist down)! This came in especially handy for pregnant people who could use — nay, deserve to keep it comfy and casual as they are growing actual life inside of them. But alas, many companies are going back in to the office, which means you may have to ditch your favorite sweatpants for actual pants…?!
Out of practice when it comes to shopping for work attire? Don’t worry, we went down the “business casual” maternity aisles and found a slew of clothes that are suitable for work and comfortable! Whether you are actually going back into the office or simply want to dress the part for your Zoom meetings, you’ll always be prepared. Here are our favorite pregnancy-friendly clothing items for work. Scroll through and happy shopping!
A stretchy, high-waisted pencil skirt that can turn a white Tee into officewear.
