A few weeks ago I shared some of my favorite pieces I’m wearing during pregnancy that are non-maternity. Some are pieces I already owned and loved before pregnancy and a few are new pieces that I knew I would still wear after baby. This shirt is one of them and chances are good if you follow other bloggers you’ve seen it around.
I started to see it all over Instagram and people were raving about how great it is. Well now I am here to sing its praise as well. My friend Lauren mentioned that she loved hers and that it would work throughout her pregnancy so I decided to give it a try and I was immediately so glad that I did. It is one of those shirts that I wish I could get in every color.
How To Style It
Right now I am a little limited in my styling options given the bump, but I know it is such a versatile piece. Right now I really love wearing it under my favorite sweater blazer for a slightly less casual look. Post baby I know it would be cute half tucked into high waisted jeans or even a casual midi skirt like this one.
I’ve put together four different spring/summer looks for the oversized polo that I know I will be wearing after pregnancy:
Look 1: This outfit would be perfect for an Al Fresco dinner or date night! Pair any color of the shirt with a flowy midi skirt (I have this one and can’t wait to wear it post-baby), fun sandals or wedges for an easy date night look, plus this beautiful bag which is perfect for date night.
This polo truly is so versatile and can easily be dressed up or down.
Sizing & Fit
The polo comes in 3 different sizes: XS/S, M/L, & XL/XXL which I know can make ordering a bit confusing depending on your size. I am a small or medium in most sizes so ordering anything with “XS” in the sizing seemed out of the question. Especially considering I wanted it to work for as much of my pregnancy as possible. I first ordered the M/L in Ecru and felt like it was a great fit, but keep in mind that I was a 5.5 months pregnant at the time. I will still wear it post-pregnancy but I do think it will fit a little bigger than I would typically prefer. I knew I wanted it in another color so I decided to order the Navy in a XS/S to try and I’m super happy with it.
The shirt is meant to have an oversized fit and even with the bump I still have quite a bit of room. I think it should easily get me through these last 2 months of pregnancy and be a great and comfortable option for after baby as well.
