Deciding what clothes to buy when you are pregnant can get overwhelming and confusing so the best rule is to keep it simple and buy the maternity wear essentials. There are always styles and cuts that are timeless and classic and NEVER date, so purchasing these maternity clothing items is the best way to start.

Maternity Tees

Boatneck Maternity TeeClassic Maternity tees are a great way to start on your maternity wardrobe.  A V-neck, Boat-neck, Scoop -neck, round-neck tee and a maternity tank top are a great item to buy. These maternity tees can be mix and match and be layered with other tops to extend your maternity wardrobe.  Choose a style that suits your shape and a tee in a cotton/lycra fabric is the best choice as the lycra gives you the stretch that you will need and the cotton will keep you cool and comfortable.

Maternity Denim

There are lots of colours and trends to choose from this season, light wash, wide leg, skinny jeans, ripped jeans but a great stable is a blue medium wash in a bootcut jean. It’s a classic look and it will never date.  A denim skirt is also a great item to have in your maternity wardrobe, a straight fitted look or a full skirt in a blue wash is also a perfect choice.

 Maternity SkirtsFold Over Maternity Skirt

There a plently of choices with maternity skirts.  A fold over skirt is easy and classic, especially in a stretch fabric. A full skirt, with an elastic waist, in a jersey knit is easy, simple and versatile option to your maternity wardrobe.  A Maxi maternity wear skirt can be be long or to the knee, choose one in a print and one in a plain colour and pair them back with your tees.

Hipster Maternity Pant

Maternity Pants

A hipster pant is a great choice, especially in a bengaline stretch fabric, it will hold its shape but stretches as you grow. Another good option for a more casual maternity wear look is a cargo pant, easy and comfortable! Choose one  in cotton fabric with a little stretch, which will give you room to move!


Its always good to have a white or black top in your wardrobe, then choose a couple of tees in  the season colours. We recommend always having a pair of black pants or a black maternity skirt in your wardrobe, cos you always need something black that you can dress up or down.  Another great colour in pants and skirts is khaki or beige they are a great colour to work with and go with just about with any colour and are in every season.

These our are some of LJB Maternity Core Essentials for the perfect maternity wardrobe. So whether you are just starting to choose your maternity wardrobe or you are only looking to buy a couple of pieces to wear through-out your pregnancy and want to stick to a budget these items are the perfect choice and can carry you through your pregnancy.
