Get a cardigan that doesn’t close in the front that you can layer over dresses and blouses, a lightweight tunic and a shift dress—any of them can be cinched with a belt after the pregnancy. Depending on how big you are, you might also go for an Empire-waist dress or a strapless dress with elastic in it (hint: Look in the swim department—some stretchy cover-ups can be worn as dresses!).
