The little black dress is a maternity wardrobe must have. It’s understandable to want to splash out on a whole new set of maternity clothes as you’ll need something to suit your changing body for every occasion.
However, the a little black maternity dress offers the best investment, as you can effortlessly dress it up for an occasion, mix and match with accessories for casual chic, or go for a smart professional look with ease.
Giving you plenty of value from what you buy, it’s the perfect way to ensure you get maximum wear out of everything – as most of Seraphine’s items can be mixed and matched with other pieces to make them suitable for an array of different events.
Our iconic little black maternity dress is the ideal summer wardrobe investment, as it’s made from light and stretchy jersey fabric, plus it has an empire line that skims the tummy and thighs. The sleeves are also super-flattering for the upper arms, as they’re an update of the traditional cap sleeve that lots of women love. The knee-length hem and V-neck add a hint of flirtiness too, which is perfect for this time of year.
- Wear it on a day out
Whether it’s a picnic in the park or a shopping trip with the girls, our LBD is a great style choice. You can add a pair of ShoeTherapy Elastic Back Red Ballerina Shoes for comfort and a splash of complementary colour, as well as a Black Storksak Emily Maternity Bag (as worn by Angelina Jolie) to carry all your bits and bobs. We’d also add a Leopard Print Scarf to finish off the look.
- Wear it out in the evening
Not just a daytime maternity dress, this LBD would be fantastic for a date night or a party. Keep the evening chill out with an Ivory Silk Sequin Shawl and add even more sparkle with Seraphine’s bestselling Sequin Satin Black Maternity Belt. All you need is an updo and some blingalicious jewellery and you’ll certainly turn heads.
- Rock it at work
It can be difficult to dress for the office in summer, especially if you’re feeling the heat already. But our LBD can come to the rescue again, keeping you cool while also looking smart. Just add a Black Front Tie Blazer and some ShoeTherapy Black Python Ballerina Shoes and you’ll instantly achieve a professional finish. You can put a vest top underneath if you need a little more support at the bust. We’d also recommend our Grey Retro Print Storksak Nina Changing Bag – who says you can’t use a maternity bag for work before you use it for baby stuff?
- Keep wearing your dress on cooler days
We’re busy enjoying summer now, but don’t think you can’t keep wearing your new dress when cooler weather eventually returns. Just add Seraphine’s Grey Tie Front Long Line Cardigan and Luxe Tailored Treggings and you’ve got a versatile piece for any season. You could also use a Leopard Print Scarf to keep you warm and looking stylish.
Why not take a look at some of our other maternity clothes too and see if you can come up with new ways to style them for all occasions?
