Oh, winter, the season of get-togethers with loved ones. It’s not always all about holiday parties, though. Just because the season’s jolly doesn’t mean you won’t get (or send) a pastel-colored invitation. That’s right—baby showers happen at the coldest time of year too. Whether you’re the one receiving the invite or the guest of honor, if you’re in the mentality of solely wearing velvet, sequins, and all things shiny this time of year, figuring what to wear to a baby shower might not come as easy as you’d hoped. No matter your woes, if you want to wear a dress to a baby shower, there are so, so many stylish options.
First things first: Trust your gut, and go for silhouettes and prints you already know and love. Because whether you’re headed to a garden-themed baby shower or simply planning a low-key brunch, you can’t go wrong with an LBD, a maxi polka dot dress, or a floral midi dress.
To provide you a little bit more guidance in this festive season, we’ve rounded up 25 dresses for a winter baby shower that will suit the occasion perfectly. From off-the-shoulder dresses to floral frocks, there’s sure to be a number that you can totally use long after the shower is over, too. Check out our favorites below, featuring a mix of maternity and non-maternity options.
