9 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY IS A SPECIAL TIME, FULL OF CHANGES, DISCOVERIES AND SURPRISES. BUT WHILST YOU'RE WALKING THREE FEET OFF THE GROUND, EVERYTHING ELSE GOES ON AS USUAL, SEASONS CHANGE AND YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TO WORK AFTER THE HOLIDAYS. THIS MEANS YOU HAVE TO REORGANIZE YOUR WARDROBE FOR THE NEW SEASON...
Oh yeah, if until a few weeks ago all you needed was a sarong and a straw hat to dress your tummy, with upcoming Back to Work period, the maternity clothing issue gets more complicated. Don't panic, just a few smart garments and a visit to our e-shop or the Pietro Brunelli boutique in Milan are enough to solve all your doubts about the maternity look for Fall-Winter 2021.
Here are the must-have items for an office look, the maternity version:
THE PINSTRIPED MIDI DRESS
For an important meeting or a trip to meet a client, put aside the usual blazer and pant suits and dare with an elegant pinstriped midi dress, very trendy for this season. Choose a below-the-knee dress, with details that enhance the silhouette: puffed sleeves, shirt cuffs, waist belt...what matters most is to stand out with style, confidence and femininity.
THE BLACK TROUSERS WITH WHITE SHIRT
Perfect for every season, the pair Black & White is reinterpreted by Pietro Brunelli to be always chic and fashionable: the trousers with stretchy fabric have a jersey band on the waist and adjustable buttons that make it perfect for the whole duration of your pregnancy, while the shirt with front pockets is a timeless classic, accurate, simple and really versatile. With or without a blazer, you'll always look flawless.
THE CASHMERE DRESS
You can’t do without a practical plain long dress in your closet. Through warm and soft cashmere, it gently caresses your curves and adapts month after month to the changes in your body without tightening. If maxi fits are not for you, choose a cashmere mini dress to pair with leather trousers, the great return of the season, perfect for the more informal days with colleagues.
THE BLACK LONGUETTE
Even during pregnancy, the black sheath skirt can be the star of your office look. Versatile and comfortable, with a comfortable elastic waistband and a strategic slit to wear it a dozen different ways: with a white shirt for a more business ready look, with a romantic blouse or with a coloured jacket to stay comfortable, or with a silk top for an elegant business dinner, overall it is a garment that you will wear during and after pregnancy without ever getting bored.
TOPS AND KNITWEAR
Softness is the green light: for an autumn/wintertime to spend behind the desk thinking about your baby on the way, there's nothing better than hoarding soft sweaters to wear over tartan skirts or trousers. Here are the rules to follow in order to find the right top: choose natural and precious materials that do not irritate the skin even after pregnancy, and indulge yourself with colours. From the most neutral tones such as grey and blush pink to electric blue, never get bored and have a thousand different combinations.
THE MAXI CARDIGAN
From autumn to late winter, over jeans and blouses or paired with a dress, the maxi cardigan is a definite must-have. Stay warm without sacrificing style thanks to a faithful companion who will be with you throughout your pregnancy (and beyond) on office days and more informal occasions. Wear it open over midi dresses with colourful prints, for a trendy and sophisticated look.
Last piece of advice? Try to limit the stress at work to protect your health and that of the child, rest when your body requires it, give the right weight to commitments and meetings... Then you'll be ready to take every opportunity in and out of the office, whilst always feeling comfortable and beautiful.
