“Not keen on spending money on maternity wear? Here’s how to update your wardrobe with ‘double function’ pieces.”
Over the past week or so, I’ve started noticing that my usual skirts and pants are becoming quite snug. I’m at 20 weeks and you can’t really see my baby bump yet; but it’s there, I can feel it. I probably should buy myself some maternity wear right about now. But the thing is, I’m not very keen on spending money on clothes that I know I’d never wear again past my due date. So, I’ve decided to update my wardrobe with what I’d like to call ‘non-maternity maternity wear’ – that means, stocking up on leggings, jeggings, cardigans, jumpers, loose fit trousers, comfortable dresses, low-heel shoes, ballerina flats, and anything versatile enough to perform the double function. I personally love these basic styles (which I bought from various retailers) – I think they are essential must-own pieces; I like the fact that they go with practically everything and you can easily wear them casually or smart. Not to mention that they are also very comfortable.
