I’ve always loved the styles from Pea in the Pod — classic, effortless, chic. And this carefully curated collection of smart 9-to-5 tops and dresses has some great finds. Below are my top three picks from the sale, and some tips on how to accessorize them. I would love to hear about your go-to maternity accessories…tell me what they are in the comments section below!

1. Burgundy dress with faux leather details
This dress is a great option for the office, but edgy enough for an after-hours rendezvous (thanks to the leather details). Opt for these sexy Barbara Bui python booties for instant glam, and carry all your essentials in this divine Rebecca Minkoff tote (the perfect day bag!). Throw a pair of these Bloch ballet flats in there as well, it’s always a good idea to have flats handy.
2. Gray-and-white striped top
I’m loving this striped lightweight sweater for running errands on the weekends. How fab would it look teamed up with your favorite skinnies and this Zac Posen amethyst-toned satchel? Add a soft, red hat from Hikaru Noguchi for a cute girl-next-door touch, and keep the time with this sleek white ceramic oversized watch from Akribos XVII.
3. Catherine Malandrino Tricolor Sweater
This maternity staple will become your new BFF. It’s super versatile and easy to wear over leggings — you’ll wonder what you did before you had it! Wear this piece on your off-duty days with black riding boots like this Corso Como pair.
