Top five: Summer maternity cardigans

Fear not, we've not turned into your granny with today's post. We're just a little bit in love with the versatility of cardigans.

Over the years these little wardrobe staples have moved on from the traditional Dot Cotton style, bringing any mum-to-be stylish warmth in the British summer weather. And it seems the maternity and mainstream world agrees, offering a huge range of amazing styles to choose from.

The great thing about buying a maternity cardigan - we know they can be slightly pricier - is that they have been designed to stretch with your bump, which is great for mums-to-be looking for the traditional button up style. Others have also been created to double up as nursing aids, providing coverage when buttoned up and easy access at the same time, which in our eyes makes them a great investment. 

However, mums on a budget needn't miss out with mainstream styles also an option here too. Opt for a wrap cardigan, which can be adjusted as your bump grows or go for a waterfall style that stays open meaning you won't have to worry about it becoming too small as your bump grows.

Below are some of our fave maternity cardigans available on the virtual highstreet.

Wear loosely over a maxi dress or team up over a vest top and maternity jeans for a casual summer look.
