What to Wear to a Baby Shower

Spring is the season for showers whether they be rain, bridal, or baby. I attended my cousin’s baby shower yesterday, so naturally showers have been on my mind. Of course, the most important question is what to wear to a baby shower? Leggings? Jeans? A dress?

Wondering what to wear to a baby shower? Here are some outfit ideas!

I decided on a blue floral dress from Gap cinched with a Gap black belt. The temps were in the 40’s, which is fabulous weather for February but not as nice as the 60 degrees the day before, so I wore fleece lined leggings and my trusty Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Booties (c/o Shopbop). It’s probably no surprise to you that these booties made an appearance as I recently posted about them here.

I, also, wore the Pearl + Crystal Floral Filigree Earrings and Bead + Chain Multi Wrap Bracelet from my Chloe + Isabel boutique as well as a Pamela Love ring (c/o Shopbop) and a Dogeared necklace that I think came in a POPSUGAR Must Have box. Also, I love this green nail polish from OPI in Don’t Mess With OPI.

Now that you’ve seen what I wore to the baby shower, here are some other shower appropriate outfit ideas…

  1. Personally I think you nailed it.
    I helped with my sister’s baby shower last month and my other sister’s baby shower will be in March! I didn’t know what to wear in January but I was going through some tough stuff and had lost about five pounds. Now I am slim to begin with and I wasn’t happy to be going through trauma, but I decided to wear the clingiest dress I have, just because I usually can’t wear it without some sort of spanx type thing. Yes! I loved that, actually.
    I gained the weight back, though, and I’m ok with that.

  2. love your outfit! it’s been a long time since i’ve been to any kind of shower but i will keep this in mind for when the next one pops up because i seriously never know what to wear!

  3. <3 everything about this outfit–especially the bootie/dress combination. Perfect for a spring shower! It's been so incredibly cold here the past few days. I need to get me a pair (or five!) of those fleece-lined leggings myself!

  4. I love outfit formulas like this, and I appreciate that you laid out a few different options. They’re looks that people can recreate using pieces already in their closet. I know that for me, when I try a new outfit formula, I sometimes fall in love with an older piece all over again. Your look for the shower is lovely. That dress will be so versatile, and it looks rich and luxe with the black leggings and boots.
