Word of advice.
Wear a dress or outfit that you can mingle and move in. There's no point attending a baby shower if your outfit isn't comfortable to be in.
Dressing up for a soirée can go either way; the choice of ensemble can either make or break you. What you should concentrate on is trying to find a balance, and finalizing an outfit that is in your comfort zone. This doesn't mean you have to purchase a new outfit for the event. You can definitely work with something you already own. Keeping this in mind, we have put together a few ideas on what could be your ticket to a lovely, stress-free shower.
Attending a Baby Shower in Style
Depending on the location, weather, and theme of the shower, choose your attire carefully. Baby showers don't necessarily have a specific dress code that women need to follow. However, an outfit that you may wear at a friend's backyard or living room baby shower may not be appropriate for one held at a banquet hall or an upscale restaurant.
Look Seductive in a Dress
Always be sure to read the invitation card carefully before you zero in on an outfit. If it's an elegant and sophisticated affair, you don't want to seem the odd one out among other women. The theme and venue of the shower will tell you whether you require a formal-type dress or a sundress. If the invitation isn't clear enough, or you're having second thoughts about your outfit, talk to the hostess. She is the perfect person to discuss these things with, as she'll be looking after everything related to the shower.
Look Chic in a Skirt
Skirts look classy, polished, and elegant any time of the year. There are so many colors, styles, and layers that can be achieved with skirts. Depending on your comfort level, choose to wear either flats, low heels, or sexy pumps. With the right accessories, make the outfit more fun than frump. And since it is a celebration, wearing black isn't really considered appropriate. However, if you add splashes of color to the entire outfit, it can be passable.
Look Alluring in Pants
For a more casual approach to the shower, wear your favorite pair of jeans or pants with a sexy top. There are so many colors you can work with. Wear pastel-colored tops with dark-colored bottoms, or pick a bright top that can be seen from the other end of the room. You can definitely keep the outfit girly, while not having to do too much. Plus, you can be confident enough to play all the games at the party, without being self-conscious.
Since baby showers are typically held during the daytime, try not to go overboard in the accessories department. You don't want to overpower your dress with unnecessary additions. A chunky necklace, cuff bracelet, menswear-inspired watch, pair of studs, wrap scarf, or even a classic tote will do.
