Baby Shower Dresses that You Can Play Up or Play Down

If you’re planning a baby shower event, you’ll get excited about looking at the current fashionable selection of maternity dresses. You can find just the perfect style for you as dresses are featured in both flowy and feminine midi and maxi designs as well as form-fitting bodycon styles.

Therefore, making a selection from baby shower dresses online is both fun and creative – provided you know a little bit about playing your look up or down. 

How Do You Make a Decision?

So, how do you pull off that sensational look for your party? To start, you need to consider three things –

  • What time of the year you’re holding the party
  • Your personal tastes and preferences
  • Your party’s theme

Use the above three listed factors as a gauge to plan your party and select a complimentary dress.

Match the Dress to the Occasion

The above factors are important–especially the theme–as you want to match the dress to the occasion. 

Let’s look at a couple of examples.

A Rainbow Themed Party

For a rainbow theme for your party, you might want to wear a midi or maxi dress in a vibrant small print design that features a number of colors. You can play up the dress with rainbow sandals or high heels. 

Use decorations like variously colored balloons to support the theme. This gender-neutral party gives you more options when choosing the color and design of your dress. However, don’t get carried away with the colors. Use a white tablecloth as your backdrop when featuring your treats and rainbow decor. 

How about a Floral or Garden Theme?

If you’d like to steer toward a more elegant theme, you might consider holding a floral-themed party. Use the theme to display pink and white flowers and include an activity, such as making a floral crown, that can double as a party favor. If you want to make the theme more casual, consider planting some seeds in your future infant’s honor.

Regardless of the theme you choose, you need to make this decision first before you go online and buy a dress. Choosing the theme of your party will make it much easier for you to select that ideal shower dress.

The Main Types of Baby Shower Dress Designs

When selecting from baby shower dress designs, you can go with maxi, midi, long-sleeved, and bodycon styles. Maxi styles are both feminine and beautiful and look great on mothers-to-be who are medium to tall in height. 

Midi style dresses are made for just about any woman–tall or short, thinner or larger. You can play these dresses up or down. While some feature a ruffled neck, others display a ruched design.

Add the Right Accessories and Develop Your Fashion Style

Choose from baby shower dresses in various colors or prints, and wear them with flats or heels. You can make a dress more casual or elegant when you add the right accessories.
