Tell Mommy: What Were Your Maternity Wardrobe Staples?

What happens when your belly pops and you can't squeeze into your favorite pair of jeans? You find a few new wardrobe staples to favor. While pregnant, my must haves were a short black skirt for work, jeans that dressed up with heels or down with flats and a lil black dress that made many appearances paired with different accessories. I picked up that Liz Lange frock for a steal at Target and was excited when I recently had the opportunity to chat with the pregnancy mogul about her latest line and what she considers expectant wardrobe staples.
mstrauss shared hers in the comments. She said:

Since I worked while pregnant, my maternity wardrobe staples were: two pairs of work pants, a few sweaters and dresses, and tank tops and then for weekends, a sweatshirt, sweatpants, and jeans. There is so much of your regular wardrobe that you can wear while pregnant: button-up sweaters can be worn open, sweatpants can be warn below the belly, oversize t-shirts are great, etc. I think having maternity tanks is important because the regular ones will get too short! You can wear tanks under any regular clothes to make them maternity.

What are (were) yours?
