Walk us through your various “uniforms” – work, “out,” weekend. (Everyday use, fancy, guest, fancy guest…) What can you not live/dress without?
Everyday:A nice Tuckernuck sweater, a pair of on-trend denim, and a comfy but cool pair of loafers or sneakers. Top it off with a cool jacket and tack hat.
Work:A chic dress with cool boots (and a belt, if not pregnant). It’s so comfortable, and easy to throw on.
Workout:My exercise of choice is tennis, jogging or pilates. I only wear the Tnuck Sport. ;)
Downtown night out:Faux leather maternity denim, a flowy blouse, and statement earrings.
Fancy:Any of our specialty dress brands, from prints to sleek black dresses. I like to change it up!
Maternity style has gotten so much better since the days of our mothers' sack dresses with cows on them, and I imagine even in the last few years. What are some of the best brands for the money out there now?
Shopbop has a good maternity section for pants. I like Paige and Madewell denim, and the Hatch Walkabout jumpsuit. We also have a maternity-friendly section, with pieces that you can wear before, during and after pregnancy. I love our Lauren cardigan sweaters and our knit dresses. I also live in Tibi’s sweater dresses with sneakers or boots. Sea and Staud also have great flowy options.
What are some of the trends now that work for a pregnant body that aren’t maternity-specific? Like, not high-waisted jeans, so instead…?
Oversized sweater dresses, long knit dresses with boots, mini shift dresses, cardigans and boyfriend sweaters, blazers, chic sneakers.
What are you most excited to wear again when you’re no longer pregnant?
High-waisted denim!!!!!!! And belts. I love belting cool dresses with boots.
