Emilia George: Making Workwear Sustainable + Chic

The Emilia George mission is simple: create sustainable maternity wear for the everyday working woman. Exclusively designed in Manhattan, their timeless pieces are crafted from vegan and recycled fabrics! Their tailored and structured silhouettes flatter every body, from pre-bump to postpartum. Keep reading to see how I styled these chic, yet sustainable pieces!

Looking for outerwear that will flawlessly take you from day to night? Look no further than the stunning Georgina Cape Jacket! Carefully crafted from super-soft and slightly stretchy Italian cupro, this jacket makes multitasking look chic. As a busy mom of three, I most definitely appreciate the care and consideration that goes into Emilia George’s pieces. They help you minimize your wardrobe changes while maximizing the time you have in your day!

As a lover of wardrobe staples, I am constantly searching for iconic LBDs! The Meghan Dress flatters every woman’s body, regardless if you’re pregnant or not. It’s sleek and formal yet casual at the same time, and the peaked lapel conceals zippers for effortless nursing or pumping access! Pro tip: add a statement belt to cinch in your waist and accentuate your hourglass figure.

When it comes to deciding on an outfit that’s both professional and modern, I love to stick with the basics. The Zena Dress should be in every woman’s closet - while this best-seller looks and feels like silk, it's actually made of 100% recycled fabric from post-consumer coca-cola bottles. Dress it up with a pair of sexy pumps or dress it down with sneakers and a cool denim jacket. Either way, you’ll be wearing this piece for years to come!

For a woman who’s always on the go, it’s important to have pieces in your closet that will take you from day to night and appointment to appointment. The Karolina Dress does just that: this business-ready, one-shoulder cocktail dress is super-soft, slightly stretchy, and utilizes extremely flattering bodice seams to hug all the right curves on your body. Emilia George makes sure you’ll look chic and powerful while simultaneously making good choices for our planet!
