This Is What Fashion Girls Wear to Baby Showers
If you've received an invite in the mail covered with pastel-colored farm animals, a baby shower is likely in your future. Spring seems to be the unofficial season for them, and if you're heading to one anytime soon, you're probably wondering what to wear. There are no hard rules like there are with weddings, where white is off-limits, but it can still be tricky to find the perfect dress.
For a little guidance, we enlisted the help of cool fashion girls who filled us in on the styles they always wear. Everything from striped shirt dresses to floral off-the-shoulder silhouettes made the cut—and even jumpsuits for the dress averse. Whether you're headed to a festive garden party or brunch, you're sure to find some outfit inspiration.

"We tend to choose comfort over all else for most occasions; we're the girls in flats while everyone else is in heels. Baby showers are no exception; we usually pick something easy and light; nothing too formal, yet still put together." — Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson
"Baby shower, bridal brunch—the day's not about you, so it's best to keep the focus on the celebratory occasion. That said, you're sure to be surrounded by girlfriends, and it's the perfect occasion for a printed dress—something elevated but too casual for the evening." — Lauren Santo Domingo
"I love to keep my outfit wholesome yet playful, just like the celebration, and to choose flowy, whimsical dresses in light and playful colors. If I'm feeling more feminine that day, I like to wear pastels, and sometimes even incorporate subtle florals, stripes, or polka dot prints." — Karen Raphael
"I tend to go boho for showers—there is nothing more feminine (and comfortable!) than a flowy dress. To keep it light and airy, stick with florals or a soft color palette." — Lindsey Dupuis
