It’s no secret that during your pregnancy you’re not going to always feel your best, but dressing your best can always boost your mood! Your baby shower is the perfect occasion to show off that you’ve still got amazing style and can even make the baby bump the latest fashion trend. When picking out what to wear to your baby shower, there are important elements to keep in mind.
Comfort is extremely important throughout your pregnancy but even more so at your shower. As the guest of honor, you’ll be the center of attention. You’ll probably be making your way around the party in order to chat and enjoy all of your guests which could mean a lot of walking or standing. Also, baby showers are usually thrown during the mommy-to-be’s third trimester meaning you’re probably experience all of the aches, pains, lack of sleep, and frequent bathroom trips. This being said, you should aim to wear fabrics that can stretch and are breathable. Dresses/maxi dresses, shorts, skirts, and pants with elastic waist bands paired with jersey knit tops would be a fantastic combination! As for your feet, if you’re ambition enough to wear heels, keep them low and be sure to bring a pair of flats as well!

When it comes to deciding what kind of look you’re going to go for, there are endless options! To start, keep in mind the season or theme of your shower. For a Spring shower, wearing something floral or bright is always appropriate and trendy whereas in the colder months something darker would be ideal. If your shower has a color theme you choosing to match it would be extremely aesthetically pleasing. Also, consider the mood of your shower. If the setting is more casual, feel free to dress more casual in a sundress or a cute pair of shorts/pants with a nice blouse.

Accessorizing can jazz up any outfit! Even if you choose to wear a plain outfit, pairing it with a piece of statement jewelry or bright colored shoes will really make your look pop. Just like choosing your style, you can choose statement pieces that either match the theme or mood of the shower. For example, if the color of your shower is primarily yellow and choose to wear white, accessorize with yellow jewelry! Some moms-to-be even like to accessorize with flower crowns. Whatever your style is, feel free to emphasize!
