3 Styles 3 Ways - Why Investing in a Few Key Maternity Pieces Means Getting the Most Bang for Your Buck
Intro by stylist Jenny Greenstein
There’s nothing more profound than entering motherhood and I believe it’s a time to amp self-care, which includes personal style. While pre/postnatal life is short-term, investing in your whole self from the inside out through all major life shifts is vital for mind, body, soul and spirit. While having a budget is recommended, being strategic about the pieces you purchase can ensure a shelf life that takes you through maternity/nursing days and beyond.
Teat & Cosset supports women from a style, function and emotional perspective as they embrace their most beautiful selves through this entire journey. An investment into the collection is much deeper than dollars and cents which makes the return priceless.
When Peggy, founder of Teat & Cosset asked me to style this shoot, my goal was to demonstrate how the individual pieces can be worn with multiple end-use. Women typically decide how they want to wear a newly purchased item at point of purchase, and their idea usually falls in either the casual or elevated box, less frequently do they commingle. But, I wanted to highlight how Teat & Cosset pieces can be worn in multiple scenarios, further justifying the investment.
I styled the Gemma sweatshirt, Clo dress and Carlotta Ruffle dress in 3 ways: wear-to-work, weekend and a night out. With this kind of flexibility in your pre/postnatal wardrobe, you get the most bang for your buck, and longevity of wear. And in 2018, as women are juggling it all, it is essential that your clothing transitions into all areas of your life!
