Zara launched a maternity line on the DL and here are the pieces we want

Zara launched a maternity line on the DL and here are the pieces we want

I was having my weekly check-in with Zara.com last night and I noticed something new. On the left-hand side of the homepage, right under ‘New In’, is a brand new section called ‘Corner Shop’. And hidden in there, along with pieces by Dress Time, Timeless and TRF, is a brand new, high-street maternity line. Titled ‘Mum‘, the collection features forward-thinking pieces for women who need more from their maternity wear. ‘Mum’ is for women who don’t want to compromise on personal style just because their bodies are changing and that’s evident in the broad selection of pieces available. There’s plenty of comfortable, everyday wearable pieces, like the straight-cut jeans and corduroy dungarees, below, as well as an attractive selection of occasion and weekend wear and comfortable footwear.

Zara’s timing is precision perfect too, with HRH The Dutchess of Sussex expecting her first child in spring. All I’m waiting for now is to see a glowing Meghan Markle wearing high-street maternity-wear. Whether you’re shopping for you and your soon-to-be, or you know someone who is pregnant, here are ten pieces worth shopping.
