Three outfit formulas for a baby shower guest outfit

1. A dress and nice shoes makes an easy baby shower guest outfit.

IDEAS FOR EACH SEASON

  • If it’s spring or summer, a lightweight floral dress, or breezy white dress with flat sandals or wedges would be adorable.
  • For the fall, a plaid dress with flats or oxfords would be a great choice.
  • And in the winter, a warm wool dress with tights and ankle boots will keep you warm and chic.

2. Jeans and a blouse are a great choice for a baby shower.

IDEAS FOR EACH SEASON

  • In the spring or summer, white jeans or light wash denim would be great with pretty shoes and a pretty ruffled or lace blouse.
  • For fall, dark wash jeans and a button down shirt make a great baby shower outfit.
  • If the shower is in the winter, swap the blouse for a sweater. Choose a fun one with details or embellishments!

3. A skirt and top make a simple and chic baby shower outfit

IDEAS FOR EACH SEASON

  • A flowy maxi or midi skirt with a short sleeve sweater is great for the spring or summer. Pair it with sandals or wedges or flats.
  • For the fall, a turtleneck with a midi skirt and flats would be pretty and simple.
  • During the winter, put on a long skirt (or short skirt with tights) and a sweater so you will stay warm!

What to Wear to a Baby Shower as a Guest

If you’re heading to a baby shower this season, you might be trying to figure out what to wear to a baby shower when you’re attending as a guest. Here are three simple formulas to put together a great outfit.

Three outfit formulas for a baby shower guest outfit

These are three easy formulas for a great baby shower outfit. You can use these outfits as inspiration to put together things in your closet, OR find links to all these pieces below!

Here’s a quick rule of thumb: it’s always better to be OVERDRESSED than UNDERDRESSED.

 

 

1. Jeans and a blouse are a great choice for a baby shower.

If you want to go a little more casual, stick with jeans and a “better than basic” kind of top. Something special, a little interesting, and that makes your outfit feel like you made some effort.

ANTHROPOLOGIE LACE TOP | ARITZIA JEANS | STRIPED BALLET FLATS | MADEWELL MOLTEN HOOPS | JCREW FACTORY STACKED BRACELETS | MADEWELL TOTE BAG (warm cinnamon)

 

 

IDEAS FOR THIS FORMULA FOR EACH SEASON

  • SPRING/SUMMER: In the spring or summer, white jeans or lighter wash denim would be great with simple flats and a better than basic blouse. Since your top will be more of a statement piece, go simple on the jewelry. A pair of gold hoops is perfect.
  • FALL: During the fall, dark wash or black jeans and a button-down or lightweight sweater make a great baby shower outfit.
  • WINTER: For the winter, swap the blouse for a sweater. Choose a fun one with details or embellishments.

 

 

2. A dress and casual shoes makes an easy baby shower guest outfit.

A dress is often my go-to for events like this. If you wear with a pair of casual shoes, like a slip on sandal, and then pair with a casual jacket, you’ll feel comfortable whether the dress code is a little more casual or dressy.

IDEAS FOR THIS FORMULA FOR EACH SEASON

  • SPRING/SUMMER: A lightweight dress with flat sandals, block heels, or wedges would be adorable. If it’s still chilly, add a lightweight jacket.
  • FALL:  A sweater dress with flats, booties or oxfords would be a great choice.
  • WINTER:  A warm wool dress with tights and ankle boots will keep you warm and chic.

 

3. A skirt and top make a simple and chic baby shower outfit

If you feel like the dress code or event space calls for something a little nicer than jeans, but not too dressy, a skirt and top is a great option. There are endless variations you can do with this formula — short or long or midi skirt, blouse or bodysuit or tee or sweater, flowy skirt or plain skirt or embellished skirt…so many options!

KOHLS BLUE AND WHITE FLORAL SKIRT | WHITE V-NECK BODYSUIT | BLOCK HEEL SANDALS | LAYERED NECKLACES | SEASHELL EARRINGS | MADEWELL STRAW TOTE WITH BROWN LEATHER

 

 

IDEAS FOR THIS FORMULA FOR EACH SEASON

  • SPRING/SUMMER: A flowy maxi or midi skirt with a sweater is great for the spring. During the summer, swap the sweater for a blouse or a short sleeve sweater. Pair it with ankle boots, sandals or wedges or flats, and then finish the outfit with some fun accessories like earrings or a few layered necklaces.
  • FALL: A turtleneck with a pencil skirt and flats or boots would be pretty and simple.
  • WINTER: A long skirt (or short skirt with tights) and a sweater will keep you warm during the baby shower.

    I’m so grateful for your fool-proof outfit formulas that work with just about all of my wardrobe! I didn’t have a baby shower this week but I did have a Mother’s Day brunch I was attending. It was held outside as a picnic since the hostess just had her carpets cleaned, so I was definitely a bit overdressed, but as you always say – it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed.
