What to wear during pregnancy is always a conundrum. A growing bump means that regular trousers and jeans are soon a laughable concept and favourite tops inevitably ride up, showing off underbelly and lower back, which frankly feels a bit chilly in the Winter and isn’t ever the most pulled together look for the office. There are lots of devoted maternity wear brands out there but no one has quite got the chic basics vibe right – until now.
We are so impressed by The Natty’s capsule collection of monochrome pieces that provide the perfect foundation for mixing and matching the rest of your wardrobe with or can simply be worn on their own for a clean monochrome look. A simple breton stripe top, pared back jersey dresses that drape over bumps to perfection and cute culottes that can be dressed up or down are all winners.
The collection was designed by The Natty founder Nadia Fauzi, when she struggled to find any maternity clothing to suit her minimalist tastes and work double duty whether she was pregnant or not. The Junior team, none of whom are pregnant could frankly live in the collection now and love the fact that all the coordinating pieces makes getting dressed and looking instantly chic so incredibly easy.
Oh, and did we mention that all the clothes are ethically and sustainably made? Just brilliant.
