A baby shower is an important celebration and a chance to look extra special. Just about any dress could be appropriate, but some women decide to have fun by choosing baby shower dresses that are both beautiful and comfortable and just right for the occasion.
Dresses are popular year round no matter the weather because they’re available in such a variety of styles from clothiers like Alfani, INC International Concepts, and Style&co. Some styles and colors are more suited to such a happy occasion, so try to avoid dark tones and go with a favorite cheerful color such as light blue, rose pink or lavender.
For an indoor gathering a sleeveless dress is a perfect choice when it comes to comfort. A skirt that falls at mid-knee or below is always tasteful for any celebration and is very versatile when made from a light fabric such as chintz, chiffon, or thin cotton. Designs that include details like a lace overlay on the bodice and a scoop neckline can make for extra special baby shower dresses that are pretty and feminine.
Some women are more comfortable in a short sleeved dress and there are many to choose from. An all-over floral print is a good option for a baby shower as long as the colors are not too intense. Look for a pullover style with a scoop neck and an elastic gathered waist for comfort, and one with side pockets at the hips for function. Add a lightweight matching jacket for a little added elegance.
Love longer sleeves? A three-quarter sleeve dress in a soft polyester/spandex fabric in soft blue or purple should be perfect. A simple pullover style is made extra nice with a V-neckline and crisscross front. Choose an A-line skirt that falls just to the knee, and make it really special with the addition of matching pumps and a small clutch.
Looking for a dress style that is great for everyday use but easy to accessorize for an important occasion? Try a shirtdress made with a machine washable cotton fabric. Go with an unlined version in a favorite pastel color or even a small print. A stand-up collar and button-front closure add the classic shirt styling that looks so good with or without a belt. Add a pair of flats and a small clutch in a complementary color to complete a casual but slightly formal outfit.
