I'm a Fashion Editor Who's Been to a Ton of Baby Showers—Here's What to Wear

·3 min read

I'm at that stage (or age) where, in the past few years, I've attended a ton of baby showers. My close circle of friends all had babies very close to each other—myself included—which means I've had my fair share of baby shower brunches, balloons, baby games, and cute cakes!

Today, I wanted to share my fashion expertise as an editor and a frequent baby shower attendee on what to wear if you're attending one. There are, of course, no hard rules like there are for weddings, where white is off-limits, but it can still be tricky to find the perfect dress or ensemble.

Whether you're headed to a festive garden party or a brunch, keep scrolling to find plenty of outfit inspiration, from jumpsuits to dresses and the perfect accessories. This will provide you with plenty of ideas for the celebratory occasion.
