Capsule wardrobe takes on a whole new meaning when you're expecting. Whether you want a pared-down closet or not, it's just the reality of maternity wear that you won't have as much to choose from. That's why it's so important to be smart about what you spend your money on and make sure you get the most out of each piece.
Over three pregnancies, I've made a few maternity wardrobe missteps (not sure what I was thinking when I picked up that silk shirt I thought would "grow with me"), but I've also zeroed in on what works — and what I keep going back to each time. These eight staples are the things that I reached for again and again as my bump(s) grew.
