Today’s 5 Ways outfit post shows how you can stretch your maternity wardrobe (yes, the pun is intended!) But since I only wear maternity clothes for less than a year, I don’t really have the desire to buy a whole new closet full of clothes. In fact, by the time I give birth, I am really missing my old clothes and never want to see my maternity clothes again! So one way to save some money on your maternity wardrobe is to buy (or make) a wardrobe staple and style it five different ways, like I did with this black maternity maxi skirt. First of all, are you might wondering how a 6 foot tall woman found a maternity maxi skirt? Well, I didn’t! I made it following the same general instructions as the brown maxi we featured a few weeks ago, but cut this one fuller than the more a-line shape of the brown maxi. Now on to the outfits!
#1: Short sleeve shirt under a long sleeve hoodie. In cooler weather I like to layer up, and this allows me to be able to s-t-r-e-t-c-h my wardrobe even further by wearing a short sleeve shirt under a long sleeve one. I paired this combination with black pumps.
#2: All black long with color pop. Wear a long sleeve black shirt and accent color shirt and accessories for a pop! You can also add patterns, texture, and stripes (or all of the above) and get away with it on an all black base. I added a knit headband in the same color tones, and some black UGG boots.
#3: Short sleeve shirt over long sleeve shirt. Again, layering up allows for more looks. In this outfit, I added a short sleeve shirt with floral accents for variety. Some ballerina flats finish the ensemble.
#5: Turtleneck and crop sweater. A crop sweater accentuates the growing belly, and can be a really fun accent piece. Plus it’s warm in chilly weather! This cold weather outfit also includes a bright red turtleneck, and matching hat and gloves. Again, the UGG boots finish the warm, cozy look.
Well, there are you suggestions for some good ways to stretch your maternity wardrobe using a black maternity maxi skirt as the base. Leave us a comment telling us some ways you s-t-r-e-t-c-h-ed your maternity wardrobe!
Make it beautiful,
