If you read my Complete Guide on What to Wear to a Baby Shower, you may recall that I mentioned you couldn’t go wrong wearing a feminine dress to celebrate the soon-to-be arrival of a little one. Here are 5 Beautiful Baby Shower Outfits for Guests that all revolve around a pretty dress to show you what I mean.
Ruffles Fit the Mood
Baby showers are a sweet moment in life, which means any clothes with ruffles make great baby shower outfits. This pretty, yellow wrap dress with soft, flowy ruffles at the neck and hemline is cheery and uplifting. To play up the ruffles, I’ve added comfy low block heels that have thick wavy straps. White accessories bring out the white in the dress and give it a fresh summer look.
Eyelet is Ladylike
Eyelet used to feel old, but these days it’s very modern. That’s thanks to all the beautiful colors of eyelet we see, like this gorgeous lilac shade. Eyelet dresses with clean lines and simple shapes also bring eyelets into the contemporary spotlight. Add some sophisticated chunky sandals and a chic animal skin clutch, and you have a youthful, ladylike look for a baby shower.
A Wrap Dress is Always Feminine
Everyone has their own idea of the style of dress that they would wear to a baby shower, but you’ll never go wrong with a feminine wrap dress. This cute, blueprint wrap dress with the short flutter sleeves is classic and understated.
Black can be a little serious for an afternoon of gift opening, shower games, and baby stories, but in this case, just a touch of black in the way of a bag and shoes actually boosts the beauty of this playful print.
A Flowy Dress is Pretty
Some moms-to-be prefer more casual baby showers, at home with everyone, including themselves in jeans, shorts, or sundresses. But unless the invitation specifies a casual or relaxed dress code, you’ll want to dress up. Think of the baby shower as a modern-day tea party! You want to look dressy but not formal. This beautiful dress with the halter neckline is a lovely choice for such an event.
This dress has an airy, feminine feel, but the unusual mix of colors in print makes it very fashion-forward. Add some delicate heels and a blush bag, and you will look classy and appropriate for a baby shower brunch or luncheon this time of year.
Traditional Colors are Timeless
While there may be a lot of talk about raising gender-neutral kids these days, some of us still love the idea of pink for girls and blue for boys. And in keeping with that age-old tradition it’s always lovely to dress in a pretty pastel shade. This soft, pink fit and flare dress is a perfect choice for a celebration like a baby shower. If you like a classic look with an elegant feel, this dress would be lovely with a nude pair of sandals, a white and gold bag, and gold earrings.
In the end, there are no rules for what to wear to a baby shower. But since it is a special event that celebrates motherhood and a sweet new life, you are best to stay away from sexy, showy, or edgy and go for something pretty, soft, and feminine. Use this as a guideline, and I guarantee you will have no problem deciding what to wear to a baby shower to feel comfy and appropriately dressed.
