What to wear to a baby shower

You have got the present sorted and are eagerly waiting to share the joys of this exciting chapter in the soon-to-be mum’s life. But has your outfit choice got you scratching your head, completely uncertain as to what to wear to a baby shower? Not to worry, as we at NADINE MERABI have got all the advice you need to put together an outfit that simultaneously meets the dress code and has you looking fabulous.

What do you wear to a baby shower?

The dress code for a baby shower can be hard to pinpoint. Somewhere between requiring fancier dress than a birthday party but not as fancy as a wedding can mean there is a vague gap within to dress appropriately.

The level of formality the host sets can add another layer of difficulty in deciding what to wear for a baby shower, even more so if their intentions aren’t exactly clear.

For any baby shower, it is always better to overdress than underdress. So, if you are wondering what to wear to a baby shower as a guest, we have some savvy outfit choices that will make you look fantastic and make a good impression too.

  • Midi or Maxi?
  • A jumpsuit: the all-in-one solution
  • Dressing for the season

Midi or Maxi?

When you are deciding what to wear for a baby shower, you may be uncertain as to how high or low the hemline of your dress should be to fit the dress code. As long as you are looking smartly dressed, are not too casual in your look, and your hemline isn’t too high, your outfit should be appropriate.

A midi dress such as the OLIVIA blue dress will fit the dress code and bring a vibrancy to the baby shower that will not go amiss. If you would prefer to lean more towards the formal side, a maxi dress such as the STELLA black dress will provide the sophisticated look you seek.

A jumpsuit: the all-in-one solution

Jumpsuits are a lesser-picked choice of typical baby shower guest attire, but this works to your advantage. By choosing a jumpsuit, your outfit will be truly unique with an unparalleled look. 

Baby showers often include games that involve moving around, so you will be free and easy to participate in these without any hassle. What is more, you will look just as elegant as you would in a dress by choosing a deluxe jumpsuit.

To make an impression at your upcoming baby shower, the RACHEL red jumpsuit is the perfect choice. Made from our exclusively designed beadwork and fully lined for a comfortable and smooth fit. This jumpsuit will keep you snug while looking exquisite too.

Dressing for the season

An essential aspect of planning what to wear to a baby shower is to dress appropriately for the time of year. Dressing for the weather and the season will ensure your comfort throughout the event. Keep your clothing flowy and light if the baby shower is taking place in the summer. Whereas in the colder seasons, layering up with jackets and woolly accessories is the best way to keep the cold away.

If the baby shower is taking place in spring or summer and the day is looking like it will bring some warmer weather, choose the LOLA red dress. The vivid shade of red and cotton-blend corded lace design of this dress will turn heads and reflect the cheerful nature of the celebration. The cinching three-tier waistband and nude mesh lining are the finishing touches that make this dress an outstanding selection.
