International Women’s Day | Our Top 5 Maternity Workwear Picks for Spring

This Wednesday (8th of March) we are joining with women all over the world to celebrate International Women’s Day, an annual drive for gender parity, equal opportunities and empowerment.

Here at Seraphine this is a cause that is close to our hearts. Over 80% of our workforce are women, including our founder Cecile Reinaud and 4 out of 5 at director level. We strongly believe that as women, mothers and workers in our own right, we should be entitled to equal pay and equal opportunities.


Maternity workwear options for Spring


We also believe that a highflying career woman ought to have a fabulous working wardrobe to match! So in honour of International Women’s Day, check out our top 5 picks for maternity workwear this spring.


1. The Pastel Maternity Dress

Just because you’re at work, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with a bit of colour and texture. In fact we’d go so far as to say that a few feminine dresses in flattering shades like our Boucle Maternity Shift Dress in stunning sky blue should be an integral part of your maternity workwear repertoire. Beautifully cut to flatter your figure, this is the kind of dress that pairs perfectly with a cropped maternity jacket for the office.


2.  Maternity Blouses

You can’t go wrong with a classic white shirt. All of our chic maternity blouses are cut to flatter your figure and grow with the bump – they’re perfect before, during and after pregnancy. Pair our Ivory Maternity Blouse with smart maternity trousers for an important meeting or wear it with heels to dress up your skinny jeans for more of a smart casual look.


3. The Little Black Maternity Dress

The ultimate fashion staple, no woman’s working wardrobe is complete without a little black dress. Utterly chic and endlessly versatile, our Black A Line Maternity Dress is the perfect option for the office.


4. Cropped Maternity Jackets

The crowning glory of any mama’s maternity workwear wardrobe, chic maternity jackets are the perfect way to pull a professional outfit together. Our cropped maternity jackets are designed to hit at the perfect point on the body to flatter your figure, with a stylish peplum at the bottom to frame your beautiful bump. Our Navy Cropped Peplum Maternity Jacket provides the perfect counterpoint to a stylish printed dress, while our Sky Blue Boucle Cropped Maternity jacket will work to elevate a pair of tailored maternity trousers or skinny jeans to glamorous new heights.


5. Tailored Maternity Trousers

And speaking of maternity trousers… this of course is an office wear essential. The perfect pair of tailored maternity trousers will revolutionise your pregnancy wardrobe, offering endless styling opportunities for work, as well as chic options for everyday wear.


However you’re celebrating International Woman’s Day this week, do it in style!

Mummy at Work – Top 5 Maternity & Nursing Styles for Working Mamas

We had a welcome blast from the past this week, as a set of inspirational photos resurfaced. Meet Italian MEP Licia Ronzulli.

From 2010 to 2013, Licia attended sessions of the European Parliament with her little daughter Vittoria in tow! Baby Vittoria made her first appearance in parliament at just 44 days old, and was a regular visitor over the next three years, sitting and voting along with her mother.

Licia Ronzulli

Here at Seraphine we love working mamas and are always excited to see trail blazing role models like Licia doing their bit to raise awareness and support more rights and flexible working for women trying to reconcile work and family life.

Here are our top 5 maternity work wear styles for professional working mamas:


1) The Little Black Dress

This little black dress is perfect for the office. A classic style, the Black Nursing Shift Dress is made in soft stretch jersey for a flexible fit and all day comfort. While easy lift-up access at the front is ideal for nursing or expressing. This stylish LBD is a must-have for a working mama before, during and after pregnancy.


2) A Crisp White Shirt
