Second Trimester Pregnancy Outfit Inspiration: 38 Outfit Ideas

I've been blogging for over 4 years and through two pregnancies, so I thought a wrap up of my favourite maternity outfits would be a great resource for anyone looking for pregnancy outfit inspiration!

As well as sharing my second trimester travel essentials I previously did a series about my wardrobe changes in each trimester you might find helpful too. I spoke about what worked and what didn't in my second trimester.

This will be a very photo-heavy post as I share a few of my favourite second trimester outfits. 38 different pregnancy outfit ideas! There are links below all the photos if you want more details.


Office Wear:


I bought two ASOS maternity pencil skirts and they got a lot of wear in the office.

My single maternity wrap dress was a real wardrobe workhorse, being worn almost weekly, although I continued to wear my regular non-maternity dresses in the second trimester as well. Fit and flare or empire waist dresses were perfect for this.

Maxi Dresses:


I only needed one maternity maxi dress for both pregnancies, the majority of my existing maxi dresses were stretchy enough to work through all three trimesters. There were a few I outgrew in the second trimester though.

Maternity Denim - Jeans and Shorts:


I added a second pair of maternity denim shorts to my wardrobe for my most recent pregnancy as I was heavily pregnant over summer and it was too hot for jeans. Previously I was doing a full work week and with the cooler temperatures and dressing for casual Friday, my maternity jeans were worn a lot more.

Maxi Skirts:

I didn't buy any maternity maxi skirts in either pregnancy, instead wearing my existing elastic waisted maxi skirts above, around or below the bump.

  1. I imagine dressing for the office must be the hardest part when pregnant. You just don't get away with wearing the same old outfit over and over again.

  6. Since following your blog, I totally know that wrap dresses and maternity pencil skirts are an office must! I think working in a business casual environment, and dressing a baby bump were hard for me at first. I literally had no idea what I was doing! Thankfully when it's time for no. 2, I'll have your guidance. (;

  24. These are such great inspiration for maternity outfits, Mica! You definitely managed to master both comfort and style, which I'm sure is difficult to do, perhaps mainly during the first pregnancy, when you're kind of learning how to style the bump! You've definitely given me some ideas on how I can style my bump in the future :) Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  28. I'm all for casual wear (in fact I love the outfits you styled with the maternity denim), but I have to say the dresses you featured in the office wear section really catch my eye - the striped dress with pink accessories was my fave! It's so helpful to have the different categories! All of these are great outfits Mica, this was a fantastic idea.

  34. After my pregnancy I did a recap on my pregnancy style but nothing this detailed. You were so stylish and wore practical outfits during both pregnancies. I am always a huge fan of maxis and wrap dresses for a pregnant belly. I loved both of your graphic B+W pencil skirts the best though. So fun and unique!

    1. Maxis and dresses are pregnancy wardrobe essentials I think - but then I think they are essentials outside of pregnancy too! ;)
