Pregnancy "capsule" wardrobe?

Hi, does anyone have any good tips for the key pieces of clothing for pregnancy? Currently 4 mths and this will be my 2nd DC, but I've just looked at my previous maternity clothes and they are such a mish-mash of colours/styles and sizes I can't imagine wearing any of them! I'm a Sahm so no work clothes needed at least, but I would like to look semi-smart instead of living in sweat pants/holey all the time! Any help gratefully received!

I had a pair of jeans from gap, some linen trousers from jojo maman bebe as well as 2 vest tops and 2 of their great wrap around tops and other than that had some non preg empire line stretchy dresses that were perfect throughout all of preg and to hide post baby belly!

I lived in skinny jeans (topshop or h&m) and a selection of tops (H&M mama are good), mainly stripey ones or wraps (Isabella Oliver or jojo). I added converse / ballet pumps/ boots and different scarves.

I also had some jersey dresses which were great, over leggings or tights, and they came in useful afterwards.

Lastly, I had some stretch jersey pencil skirts, wore them will tops / shirts/ jumpers. Weirdly enough, New Look online has some great maternity staples in lots more colours than were available than when I was looking last year! Asos often have maternity stuff in the outlet.

I miss being pg smile

Congratulations thanks
