The baby shower. A time-honored tradition of your closest pals toasting your impending life as a new mother. Whether you prefer the traditional Sunday brunch, complete with chevron decals, mocktails, and baby guessing games, or the more nouveau wine and cheese cocktail parties, you’re going to need something cute to wear. 

Cue our assortment of festive day dresses, jumpsuits, and the sweetest styles for your big moment in the preggo spotlight.

How To Pick an Outfit for Your Baby Shower

Choosing a baby shower outfit can feel overwhelming. You have to consider the season, the dress code, and possibly even the baby shower theme; oh my!

But the truth is that dressing for a baby shower should be fun — it’s a celebration, after all. And long gone are the days of frumpy maternity dresses. These days, you’ve got options.

When choosing your baby shower outfit, consider the following factors:

  • Season and weather: Is the baby shower taking place outside in the middle of the hot summer? In that case, go with something loose or sleeveless. Or will you be chilling in the A/C? Maybe a long-sleeve maxi dress is the better option.
  • What pregnancy symptoms are you experiencing? (Helpful hint: If you’re reached the stage of needing to pee every 30 minutes, maybe a jumpsuit isn’t your best choice).
  • Is there a dress code? How casual or dressy do you want to be?

Once you’ve spent some time thinking about these factors, you’ll be ready to choose your outfit.

Or, you can take inspiration from your style — boho-chic moms can rock that ankle-length floral dress and tasseled ankle boots. Sporty moms might prefer an oh-so-soft T-shirt and boyfriend maternity jeans. 

Breezy Dresses

Here’s the first rule: You’re allowed to wear whatever you want at your own baby shower. In our minds, that means fun, fun, fun — like the bright colors and summery silhouettes. 

Another strikingly fun look: the flowy Jaden Dress, now in jaw-droppingly vivid Fuschia. This midi gown elevates the shirt dress to the next level with a lightweight and luxe material, elegant silhouette, and sarong-like back panel that you can tie in the front or the back, whichever you prefer. (Things we love: A dress with options.)

Plus, it unbuttons allllll the way down, making nursing a breeze — this is a dress you’ll want to keep postpartum. In fact, don’t be surprised if you find yourself reaching for it again and again and again.

A super popular baby shower dress trend (and guest outfit trend) is to dress in pink or blue, according to the gender of the incoming bundle of joy. Whether you’re having a baby boy or simply love to look like a twilight sky, the Vivian Dress won’t let you down. 

With carefully-woven elastic in the back, this dress grows (and shrinks) with you. This made-in-NYC sundress is effortlessly chic and remarkably comfortable. Now you’re ready to play baby shower games well into the night (or until 4 PM when you’re exhausted and go to sleep).

Dramatic Dresses

If you want drama (not the kind that comes with picking a guest list), it doesn’t get much more va-va-voom than the Easy Slip Dress, the classic swing dress updated for moms-to-be.

The cowl neckline, bias cut, and swingy silhouette keep things loose and comfortable (exactly how we want when expecting!) while barely-there straps and slinky material in Rosewood add a bit of spice. Dress it up with a pair of heels, or keep things cool and casual in sneakers — it’s your world, and we’re living in it.

And for the ultimate baby shower look, check out the maxi Gala Dress, equal parts sophisticated and sassy. The high neckline, empire waist, and sleeveless top will have you feeling like a Greek goddess, while the Fuschia colorway and drapey fit adds a bit of fun. Featuring a removable sash and the stretchiness you need to wear this number for all nine months and beyond.

Pair this midi dress with a denim jacket for casual events. But then, add a blazer or cashmere cardigan, and it’s the perfect best-dressed wedding guest outfit too.

Jumpsuits and Matching Sets

Dresses might be the go-to baby shower fit, but that doesn’t mean they’re required, especially during a summer baby shower when the options are nearly endless. Don’t be afraid to try a romper, jumpsuit, skirt set, or plain ol’ pants and a tee. Your tummy is the star here, and the point is to show it off however you feel most comfortable.

Skirt and Top Sets

For one of our all-time favorite baby shower looks, try pairing the Body Midi Skirt with the Body Cropped Tee in a matching shade. The cropped look fits and flatters your bump in exactly the right place, providing just a peek of skin at the midriff.

Both the Body Cropped Tee and Body Midi Skirt are made of an uber-comfy bamboo blend (bonus points: it’s Oeko-Tex Certified, AKA safe for you and baby). The tee — a scooped neck cap sleeve situation — goes with basically everything, so don’t blame us if you put it on and literally never take it off.

The skirt, meanwhile, features an all-around elastic waist guaranteed to stretch without any of the digging and poking of zippers or hardware. Wear them together, separate, color-matched, or mixed. With this set, it’s a win either way.


Maybe a maternity jumpsuit is more your style. 

In that case, check out the Heidi Jumpsuit, crafted from our bestselling Tencel linen fabric. The wide-leg style and elastic waist keep things nice and comfy all pregnancy long, while the crossback straps and a pleated top add a bit of oomph to the look. This jumpsuit comes in neutral Sandstone and Black and pairs perfectly with a pair of comfy heels or sandals for an easy summer baby shower look. 

No need to spend time agonizing over your outfit when you have this in the closet. It’s your one-stop shop that’s guaranteed to turn heads. PS: This would also be fab for fall or winter baby showers.

The Best Outfits for the Best Mom (aka You)

When you have a new baby on the way, you deserve the best of the best. 

Be it pastels, floral prints, or moody jewel tones, maternity styles should be authentic to you as a person first. Of course, you’re about to be a mom, but that doesn’t mean you need to do away with mini dresses and statement pieces. You simply need to add a lil bit of extra fabric for that Instagram-worthy bump of yours. 

So celebrate in style and celebrate you: We certainly are!
