My Minimal Fall Pregnancy Capsule Wardrobe

Minimal Fall Pregnancy Capsule Wardrobe

It should come as no surprise that I am once again tackling the concept of a capsule wardrobe this time it is fall and I am pregnant! So here is my minimal fall pregnancy capsule! Did I mention I love fall?!

While it can be easy to want to hang out in sweats all day and be super comfy during pregnancy I actually enjoy dressing my bump with form fitting skirts and dresses. I’m more of a curvier woman and pregnancy is really the only time I really accentuate my curves.

If you missed my first time trying out a capsule wardrobe catch up here My Thoughts on a Minimal Closet. This time I’m not following project 333 to a T simply because the point of the challenge is to notice what you need in your closet and what you don’t and trim the excess which I did the first time around.

One of my big lofty goals for my wardrobe is to eventually never store any clothing items away. Ideally I would have a year round closet filled with clothing pieces I love and work with my body- pregnant and not. I have a long way to go but that would be so nice! hah

Pregnancy Staples

To start off any good capsule we need to start with some staples. In my typical fall capsule you’d see a lot of black denim, sweaters, long flannels, a few heavier layers and my red wing boots. When it comes to dressing my body for pregnancy I like to have a few more form fitting pieces when getting dressed. I’m saying this in the most polite way possible to myself but I’m not a petite girl, I have curves, and when I wear flow-y clothing while pregnant it makes me feel twice as big as I actually am and I genuinely feel like I’m walking around looking like a circus tent.

A few of my must haves for pregnancy:

  • Basic layering t-shirts and tanks
  • good pair of maternity leggings (my favorite at the moment- RASKANA– wow they are comfy and the quality is phenomenal)
  • maternity denim (know of any good brands, please share them with me!)

My Fall Pregnancy Capsule

For my capsule you’ll see a lot of my typical fall wardrobe from when I’m not pregnant like this wool camel coat that I have been obsessed with for years. A few of my other staples are black denim of course and sweaters. I go more in-depth below but I love layering and the look of a fitted skirt, with a turtleneck sweater and a jacket over the top. Will be repeating this formula all season!

  • 3-4 classic basic t-shirts
  • sweaters and long button ups
  • a few pairs of pregnancy leggings
  • A few pairs of maternity jeans – I actually love wearing my high wasted jeans when I’m not pregnant so packing them away is bittersweet lol
  • Stretchy pencil skirts
  • Form Fitting Dresses
  • Long button down flannels and shirts
  • Boots – I love my Red Wing boots

One thing I am trying with this capsule is turning all of the other hangers in my closet the opposite direction to see if I reach for any of the pieces not in my capsule. Like I said before I have a lofty goal but I want to get there intentionally and over time. I’m not looking for overnight perfection, I want to slowly and intentionally hone in on the pieces in my closet that I love and wear constantly.

Another thing to note is that I did not include my church dresses in the mix because I really only ever wear them on Sunday’s and they aren’t in my normal clothing rotation. Also I did not count shoes in my capsule because I only wear a handful of styles.

Hope this was helpful! Share any of your favorite maternity brands, looks you love, and hope you have a great cozy fall season!
