Maternity Style Tips For Autumn
There’s a chill in the air. Radiators all over the country have been flicked on. It is officially Autumn.
Say goodbye to flowing skirts and floral dresses, it’s time to get your maternity wardrobe Autumn-ready. We know that you don’t want to replace your entire wardrobe, so here are our top tips for rocking autumn, maternity-style, with a few key pieces.
A Trusty Sweatshirt
Never underestimate the power of that perfect sweatshirt. Dress it up for a coffee date with jeans and an oversized handbag, dress it down with trainers and a beanie hat. Or, throw it on at home with a pair of jogging bottoms and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation time!
Our sweatshirts come in a range of rock-inspired and modern prints, because we don’t think you should have to sacrifice on style. They’re also part of our multiwear range, made in a stretchy cotton elastane blend and with concealed side zips making them suitable for both pregnancy and nursing. And because they’ve been designed to hold their shape, you could be reaching for your trusty sweatshirt for years to come.
Invest In Clothing You Can Wear Again, and Again, and Again…
When it comes to a versatile Autumn wardrobe, you need clothing that lasts throughout Winter into next year. Fast fashion it out. Multiwear is in. Instead of buying unflattering, oversized tops to see you through the cooler months, opt for a NINE+QUARTER multiwear tee which is tailored to fit your changing body.
Our multiwear tees are made from soft stretchy cotton in a relaxed fit with a longer cut in front to give you room to grow. Not only that, but the concealed side zips allow you to breastfeed conveniently and discreetly. Pregnancy, nursing and beyond, multiwear clothing has you covered.
Our Courage longsleeve top is both maternity and breastfeeding-friendly. View more of the range here.
The maternity-friendliest shoe trends yet...
Whether you live in leggings and Uggs, or prefer something more swish, boots and skinnies are the ideal Autumn/Winter combo. Choose maternity bottoms with plenty of stretch so that they fit comfortably over your growing bump, and opt for the comfiest boots you can find.
A godsend for your feet and back, there are plenty of chunky, flat, knee-high boots on-trend for AW2021, so you should have no trouble opting for a flat or low heel option. Some of our favourites this season include the classic chelsea boot as well as the "slouchy boot" that hangs relaxed off the leg.
Not a boots kind of gal? No problem. Chunky loafers are also in and so are technical trainers and...wait for it...plush slippers! Yep, that's right, this fall it's totally acceptable to walk out in your fluffy slippers, if you dare...It doesn't get more maternity friendly than this!
From athletic trainers to outdoor slippers, this autumn's shoe trends are a godsend for tired, achy backs and swollen pregnancy feet. Shop these two options and more at www.office.co.uk
Pull on some pretty statement socks to complete the fluffy slipper look.
No seasonal wardrobe is complete without a few well-chosen accessories. At NINE+QUARTER we love our accessories because they’re a great way to add colour, texture and personality to your wardrobe. You can use a bag, belt, hat or piece of jewellery to dress up or dress down essentially the same maternity outfit.
Accessories will add a punch to your outfits. Best of all they transcend all trimesters and won’t need to be thrown onto the maternity ‘discard’ pile when you’re done. So if you need a fashion pick-me-up, here’s where you can really splurge.
A statement accessory can lift even the most basic maternity outfit.
