These three chic, interchangeable pieces are pregnancy's answer to wear-anywhere black basics.
For years, your minimalist all-black-all-the-time wardrobe has kept you classy at the office, elegant at black-tie events, glam for a night out on the town. But now that you're pregnant, you need a similarly stylish, super-sleek maternity option -- stat. Leave it to effortlessly chic Europeans to come up with a solution: Neunmaldrei, which means "Nine-times-three" in German, offers three interchangeable pieces (an Audrey-esque top with a stand-up collar, skirt, and pants) that transition from three to nine months just as easily as they do from work to weekend.
Made of a special two-way cotton/stretch blend, the comfy collection's adjustable elastic bands and cool-looking bias-cuts adjust to your ever-changing figure. Designer Mira Becker (who boasts some serious cred as a mother of five) created each item in washable basic black to ensure it's at once slimming, sophisticated, and easy to mix and match with other pieces in your closet. Going on a trip? Pack this, another basic top, and your outfit-defining accessories -- and be set for a stylish long weekend.
An added bonus: The linen-covered box the pieces come in makes this a gorgeous gift for your just-starting-to-show pregnant friend.
Neunmaldrei kits come in sizes small, medium, and large and retail for $370 each.
