Rent the runway unlimited plan! $145/month for the basic plan and you can use it to fill in your wardrobe gaps until your size stabilizes again. It has gotten me through 2 pregnancies and 2 returns to work 👍👍

I would only get a few pieces and do a capsule wardrobe and one suit to rotate through if you’re planning on eventually losing baby weight. I went cheaper and bought dress pants at target for under $30 a piece and then mixed in tops. It was all under $150.

I highly recommend some sheath suit dresses if you have to wear suits everyday. They are much more forgiving since they can accommodate more fluctuations in your waist size then pants or skirts can. Then you can throw a jacket over it and you’re ready for court.

After I had my kid I purchased some sheath dresses that were very suit like from Target (yes, Target) and they lasted me years - and tolerated being washed in the washing machine. People always told me how great they looked. They were literally just sheath dresses. No idea why people liked them so much. So, you might start there and see what you can find. As far as budget, I have no idea. That is somewhat dependent on your financial situation.

Are you working from home and just need work clothes for Zoom?

Lands end has some nice sheath dresses that are super forgiving and best of all, have pockets. Any belt and a jacket, voila.

Try poshmark.

Not looking for brands, just looking for a budget. Thank you!

Nuuly!
