Topshop was definitely one of our go-to high street stores for those maternity essentials (when, with all the will in the world, your ‘normal’ clothes just don’t cut it any more, and you have to accept that your body is changing shape). I remember buying a pair of jeans, a chambray shirt-dress, and a plaid shirt. I wore them all into the ground (during my pregnancy and for those first few months afterwards). You really don’t need to buy a whole new wardrobe, just a few carefully chosen pieces. We also like this peasant-style blouse; these denim dungarees; these joggers (super-cosy with the matching sweatshirt, but to be worn behind closed doors only); this tuxedo jacket; and these dark vintage ‘Baxter’ jeans. The high street is the best place to shop for maternity clothes, because you just don’t need to spend a fortune. Save your money for gorgeous baby cashmere! You’ll be glad you did!
