Dressing up for baby showers can be lots of fun, and picking out your outfit should never be a drag. Although there are many different types of baby showers with different levels of fanciness, there are a few basic guidelines that can help you choose a fashionable and appropriate outfit for the big event.

In the winter, fashion is all about classiness and style without showing too much skin. Although dark colors are easier to find than pastel tones during winter, there are always classic light colors available in department stores and fashion stores that you can purchase year round. In the winter you can also pull off a combination of say, a long sleeve pastel colored fashion top matched with a pair of black or gray slacks.
Winter allows for mixing the traditional baby shower pastel colors with the current colors of the season, which tend to be darker. Winter scarves, blazers, and elegant jackets in light colors are also popular items for winter baby showers. Long semi-formal dresses that are not too casual but not too dressy also work well for winter showers.

Light yellow and soft green are neutral colors that work well for girl or boy baby showers. There are no set rules for what colors to wear, but pastel colors are definitely a must for spring. Headscarves and pretty, feminine jewelry are great accessories for spring baby showers.

Things like knee-length skirts, classic cropped pants, and three-quarter sleeve tops are some great ideas for fall.
