1. Bon Prix Maternity Parka Jacket, £59.99

Available in sizes 8–26

A classic parka deserves a place in every wardrobe, and a maternity wardrobe is no exception. This practical and stylish parka jacket is a must-have for the coming colder months, and comes in black and olive colourways.

We love this piece as it can be worn throughout your entire pregnancy and beyond when your little bundle arrives. There is a side zip that can be used to adjust the size of the coat as your bump grows, while a drawstring at the waist will allow you to draw attention to your beautiful shape.

Once baby arrives you can use the separate pouch to keep them close to you while protecting them from the elements. Extra snuggles are always a bonus from us! This parka is warm but still lightweight enough so you shouldn’t feel too overheated.

2. Bon Prix Comfy Maternity Dungarees, £39.99

Dungarees and overalls are still having a major fashion moment, and there is no reason why you and your bump should miss out.

These dungarees from Bon Prix come in Light Blue Bleached and Blue Stone washes, and are super comfy – ideal for wearing from bump to beyond. They have stretchy panels and adjustable sides to allow them to grow with you.

Once baby is here you can still enjoy wearing these style staples as the top clasps are ideal for breastfeeding.

Simply wear a nursing top or a simple tee underneath, pop open the clasp and baby can enjoy a feed while you look gorgeous.

This chic and sexy top will look great dressed up or dressed down, depending on how you style it. The wrap belt sits just under the bust, which is super flattering, as is the mid-thigh length and stylish vertical and diagonal stripe design.

Made from a lightweight jersey fabric, this top will make you will feel and look cool and on-trend. It’s also great for nursing, as you can wear a nursing bra underneath and feed discreetly while opening the wrap up a little. This top is a real favourite of ours.
