Cold weather can definitely make it more challenging to figure out what to wear to a baby shower as a guest (bye, bye summer sheaths!). In that case, layering is key. “I’ll add a denim or leather jacket to a dress for cooler months,” Butler says. A cozy sweater or smart blazer can go far when warming up an outfit as well. If the event seems more casual, pants are always an option too: Search for dressier details like a unique silhouette, fun pattern or more formal fabric to elevate the look.ADVERTISEMENTPhoto: Courtesy Gap and Lulus
The juxtaposition of textures makes this outfit interesting, while also keeping you warm and toasty. A cozy cropped sweater is the perfect contrast to the silky feel of this satin skirt. Plus, the leopard print and pleats feel very fashion-forward.
Velvet serves a dual purpose on this stylish dress: It’s totally on trend, and it’ll help keep you warm. We especially love the wrap silhouette that looks great on everyone and the fluttery, boho sleeves.

A plaid blazer and slacks is a combo so classic, it’s a no-brainer when deciding what to wear to a baby shower in winter. Update the look with modern touches like an oversized cut on the jacket and a stylish jogger silhouette with a paperbag waist. These dressier details keep the look from leaning too casual.
