Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways to Wear Them

As much as I love putting together cute outfits, I’ll be the first to admit that my style can tend to take a bit of a backseat during pregnancy. Pregnancy is a time of change and transition (oh and hormones… let’s not forget the hormones) when just getting dressed can seem like a daunting task. Whether it’s because you’re feeling terrible from morning sickness in your first trimester or because you’re feeling as big as a house in your third trimester… there are plenty of reasons why fashion seems to fall down on the priority list. On top of not always feeling super cute during pregnancy, there’s that little matter of outgrowing clothing at an alarming rate. Who can afford to keep up with style when you’re constantly having to buy new clothes?

Well, enter Storq. Storq is an online shop that is basically a godsend for pregnant women everywhere. They have a line of wonderful clothing basics (not to mention body and beauty products that are all pregnancy-safe!) that are simple, sleek, and that can accommodate your changing body all throughout pregnancy and afterward as your body transitions back down to size.

I was able to try out their Storq Basics Bundle that they sent me and it’s been amazing. I pretty much wear at least one Storq item in every single one of my ensembles now and I’ve been really pleased with the fit as well as the comfort level (the fabric is amazingly soft) and versatility of all of the pieces. Having these great basics seriously makes getting dressed so much easier because I know I have things in my closet that will not only be comfortable, but will look stylish and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

I decided to share some of my favorite outfits that I’ve put together with my basics. There are 15 outfits altogether, but really the options are endless. Hope this gives you mamas-to-be a little bit of maternity style inspiration!

    These are the Storq Basics. A Storq clothing basics bundle comes with 4 items — a dress, leggings, skirt, and a tank. I also received a second tank in black, hence why this post is titled "5 Great Basics" and not four. You can buy each outfit component separately on the Storq website or save some money by purchasing the bundle. My absolute favorite is the dress, but everything is fantastically comfortable (the fabric is ridiculously soft) and so versatile!

  • 1. My go-to 2 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    This outfit is pretty much my day-to-day go-to ensemble. I started with the Storq tank top and then paired it with jeans, flats, and a flowy cardigan.

  • 2. Dressing it up 3 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    I based this outfit around the Storq little black dress and added a little lace, a belt, and some booties to dress it up. This dress has saved me on so many occasions this pregnancy. It's perfect for dressing up or down and can be made appropriate for pretty much any occasion.

  • 3. A little lace 4 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    This outfit is pretty much like the last except I threw a lace pull-over over the top of my Storq dress. Having a complete pull-over changes the whole look!

  • 4. Simple and chic 5 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    By simply adding a streamlined statement necklace and a black moto jacket to my Storq dress, I am able to change this look into something simple and chic.

  • 5. My jam 6 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    This outfit represents my style quite well. Comfortable basics like these Storq leggings and a v-neck, paired with slightly more edgy accents like suede booties, a fun necklace, and a chambray button-up. And let's not forget my signature "mom braid."

  • 6. Add some texture 7 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    For this outfit I swapped out my dress for the Storq skirt and the white tank and paired it with a lightweight knit sweater, a moto jacket, and some leopard flats. I wasn't sure about the midi-length skirt with a big pregnant belly, but I really love this length and it's great for getting down on the ground and playing with my little one too!

  • 7. Black for spring 8 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    In this ensemble, I paired the Storq skirt with a springy top and wedge sandals. This is an easy way to make black work for spring and summer.

  • 8. Leopard details 9 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    A leopard pull-over over the top of my Storq dress makes this look just dressed-up enough, but still totally comfy and great for a more casual setting as well.

  • 9. Librarian chic 10 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    For some reason this ensemble screams librarian to me (minus my super tall heels of course). I think it's because I have my Storq skirt pulled up for a high-waisted look and paired with a tank. I wasn't so sure about this, but I actually really like it.

  • 10. Tomboy with a twist 11 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    I love the idea of pairing the Storq skirt with tennis shoes and stripes. It's a fun juxtaposition of tomboy and girliness. This would be a typical weekending outfit for me.

  • 11. Throw-on-and-go 12 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    An easy throw-on-and-go outfit: Storq tank, black sweatshirt (that once covered my belly), jeans, tennis shoes, and a top knot.

  • 12. Casual lounging 13 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    There are plenty of days when I don't feel like really getting dressed, but I know I'll feel so much better if I do. On days like this I pull out an outfit like this that's just as comfy as pajamas even though it's not technically pajamas. Storq leggings and a crewneck sweatshirt over a patterned top for just a tiny bit of visual interest are the perfect way to achieve this.

  • 13. Dinner with friends 14 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    Leggings are easy to dress up with a flowy tank, a textured cardigan, and some booties. I would wear this to dinner with friends... in fact I just might wear it to dinner with friends tonight!

  • 14. Running errands 15 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    This is an outfit I would wear while running some quick errands with my toddler. Sneakers are a must when carrying/chasing a toddler and leggings are super comfy. Just be sure to pair them with a top that covers your bum!

  • 15. Dressed up errand running 16 of 16
    Maternity Style: 5 Great Basics + 15 Ways To Wear Them

    This is another outfit I would wear for errand running, though slightly more dressed up: a dress with a V-neck knotted over top and a pair of tennis shoes. Easy and chic and perfect for the warmer weather that is almost upon us!
