HOW TO BUILD A PREGNANCY + POST-BABY CAPSULE OFFICE WARDROBE

August 27, 2021 4 min read

The wear-to-work maternity styles and postpartum styles you need for spacing out in the conference room instead of on Zoom for returning to the office.

Reality is sinking in: a return to the office is officially (somewhat, maybe?) happening. While many companies are opting for a hybrid model – with some still choosing to be fully remote – a new work wardrobe is calling your name. Because, yes, your coworkers do notice that you wear the same Zoom-approved rotation of shirts every week (and that simply won’t fly IRL). And it’s just kind of time to put your big girl clothes back on. But we swear, “work clothes” don’t need to be uncomfortable (ours will feel just as good as your leggings).

Boost your morale and breathe life into your closet with our top picks for a maternity & beyond wear-to-work wardrobe, for wherever you’re sending e-mails from.
