If you are newly pregnant, you can feel a little overwhelmed by everything you need for baby and for yourself.

  1. Jeans: Look for an adjustable waistband, stretch material and a flattering cut, such as a bootleg. This would be a good item to splurge on because you will probably wear these for a bit after the baby is born.
  2. Cargo Pants: Pull on these lightweight, fashionable pants for everything from shopping to lounging. These pants look great with a fitted tee or an empire-waist top.
  3. Skirt: Look for a skirt in a basic color (black or brown) with a lightweight material and a stretchy waistband.
  4. Dress: A wrap jersey dress will look great on your pregnant body, and is a perfect look for a date night with your honey.
  5. Tops: Pick up a figure-hugging top with a cute neckline to accentuate your bump. A flirty and feminine empire-waist shirt is also a great look, and you can never go wrong with a fitted tee.

    Rated 0 out of 5 by A good, basic list. I would also add supportive bras and panties to the list. October 23, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by I'd replace cargos with maternity leggings or yoga pants (maternity brands not necessary if the waistband is the stretchy folding kind). Most professionals can't pull off cargos and jeans at work. I've used non-maternity tunics with my mat. leggings and it looks great (shows the bump nicely). Somehow, black yoga pants can work in a more professional environment (with a tailored shirt) - they are a lifesaver in all trimesters! (also a tip if you are too small to fit most maternity sizes - use your fave yoga brand for pants). October 21, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by I'm a small woman, started off at a 22 inch waist, am 6 months pregnant now and I'm still having difficulty finding 'maternity' jeans/cargo (any non-yoga/athletic) pants for my size :-(. Looks like I'll be wearing lots of skirts & dresses this fall/winter. September 22, 2012
