The Best Work Outfits for Breastfeeding Moms

Filed in: Your Closet

Moms, we’ve heard you! Below, nine tried-and-true pieces for breastfeeding women that’ll look sharp in the office (and beyond). Because pumping at work doesn’t need to be any more complicated than it already is.

1. The Katerina dress

The Katerina dress in dark sage.

Made of luxurious silk jersey that stretches beautifully with curves, this sleek wrap dress is a sure bet for new moms who want to look and feel gorgeous in a flash.

2. The Nikki dress

The Nikki dress features a chic front placket that can be left partly open or buttoned up (note the pretty gold fastening at the neck). The sash is optional—if you’re more at ease in a looser silhouette, leave it at home. Bonus: It’s machine washable.

3. The Fey top

The Fey top and Waverly skirt in boysenberry.

One of our most comfortable (and popular) tops, the Fey has a sophisticated cross-front construction that flatters your figure while keeping you covered up. (For a sleeveless version, check out the Blixen top .) Tuck it into our matching Waverly skirt (shown above) or Soho skirt create the effect of a wrap dress.

4. The Austen tunic

The Austen tunic in ivory.

With a relaxed fit and polished details like a covered button-up placket and gold buttons at the cuffs, the Austen is both easy and elegant. And don’t be afraid of wearing white—it’s also machine washable.

5. The Lagarde shirt

The Lagarde shirt in cream.

Our take on the classic button-up, the Lagarde is cool and effortless—even when your life feels anything but. (And if you get breakfast on it, worry not—just throw it in the wash.)

6. The Morandi sweater

The Morandi sweater in almond.

Also machine washable, the Morandi sweater is an all-purpose cover-up that comes across as clean, compact, and put-together—no matter what you wear underneath.

7. The Bell sweater

Bell Sweater // MM.LaFleur

The Bell sweater in cashmere.

Think of the Bell as the Morandi sweater‘s sophisticated and slightly more high-maintenance sister. Made from thick, soft, cuddle-up-in-it cashmere, it’s the kind of thing you’ll want to wear through nine months of pregnancy, however many months of breastfeeding, and a decade after that.

8. The O’Keeffe sweater

Thanks to its crisp contrast lining, the O’Keeffe looks like a sleek jacket—but feels like your coziest bathrobe. When you need to pull together an easy outfit, this is a smart go-to.

9. The Angelou shawl

The Angelou shawl // MM.LaFleur

The Angelou shawl in taupe.

Have you ever wanted something that could function as a top, a wrap, a scarf, and a baby blanket? Well, we made one—in cashmere, of course. The Angelou shawl is an all-in-one garment that can be belted, tied, or swept over your shoulders, depending on your mood. As long as you feel great, we’re happy.
