The best kind of fashion investments are the ones that last, but that could be challenging when pregnant since your body is constantly in flux. Luckily there are strategic shopping techniques to ensure you get your bang for your buck, and don’t wind up wasting pennies on items with an expiration date. The spring season is upon us, so here’s a list of 7 essential items for the mama-to-be that can work for the bump and beyond!

Go-to jumpsuit: It’s hot, you’re getting bigger and while you definitely want to remain comfortable, you also want to look chic! This jumpsuit from Hatch Collection, is the perfect go-to style to take you from day to dinner! Throw a blazer/denim jacket atop or wrap a scarf around your shoulders for those cooler spring nights.

Lightweight handbag: The last thing you want to carry around on top of your growing belly is a heavy handbag. The metro tote from MZ Wallace is not only super cute, but lightweight and functional too. It can seamlessly transition into postpartum as well since roomy enough for diapers and bottles and easy to clean.

Wear-with-everything sandal: During pregnancy, heel heights get shorter with each passing month! That being said, spring is the ideal season to keep your shoe-game on point while still remaining comfortable. These Ancient Greek Alcyone lace ups are sure to make a statement with any ensemble you pair them with.

The perfect hat: Since your estrogen is on overtime when pregnant, protecting your skin from the sun is critical. A cute panama hat from Sensi Studio will do the trick, while looking super cute at the same time!

Print scarf: Tie this H&M scarf around your neck during the prenatal days, and open it up like a shawl and wrap it around the body once the baby arrives to conceal when breastfeeding!

Denim jacket: Other than your everyday pair of jeans, denim is the must-have fabric to incorporate into your collection this spring season. This always in style, classic Madewell denim jacket is an ideal addition to your maternity-wear for now, and will move with you into postpartum life as well!

Sunnies: Changes in hormones, metabolism, fluid retention, and blood circulation can all affect your eyes during pregnancy. Sounds like an ideal time to invest in a new pair of sunnies like these from Le Specs that’ll keep those peepers protected and fit you all the same no matter what stage of pregnancy you’re in!
