Site Spotlight: Au Lait(Source: Au Lait; Going Home Dress, $138; Tank, $148; Tee Dress, $188; Luxe Is Tee, $168) Even the most style-conscious woman may bend her fashion sensibilities in the name of nursing, but that's not a decision designer Emily Hsu thinks moms should have to make. Inspired by her own frustrating shopping experiences following the birth of her daughter, Hsu launched Au Lait, an apparel line dedicated to breastfeeding mothers.   

Au Lait's current range of 11 pieces features three designs to facilitate discreet nursing access: vertical slits on tank tops ($98–$148), blouses ($198) and dresses ($138–$198); cutouts on cardigans ($218); and princess seams on sweatshirts ($168) and T-shirts ($168). 

Site Spotlight: Au Lait(Source: Au Lait; Jersey V Tank, $98; Blouse, $198; Flutter Dress, $198)Having spent much of her career designing athletic apparel, Hsu drew upon her textile knowledge to create a collection that blends function with comfort and style. The line's easy care, machine-washable basics include lightweight jersey knit V-neck tops ($98), soft cotton pullovers ($168) and poly-silk shift dresses ($198). Fabrics are sourced from the U.S. and Japan, and all garments are made in New York City.
