1. How to wear pants to a bridal shower?

Believe it or not, a white jumpsuit is such a popular bridal shower choice for brides and guests!

These days, the bridal shower has come in all different forms from super fancy ones to the family backyard casual party.

So yes, unless there’s a dress code required from the bride, you can for sure wear pants!

That said, a bridal shower is a special moment and you always want to dress well to respect the bride and blend in with the crowd.

To look well put together, throw on a fitted jumpsuit and you’ll be all set.

I’d say pick the V-neck, self-tie waist, and flared pants to look more sleek and polished.

Together with a pair of high heels, girl you’re good to go!


Of course, if you are a guest, pick the other hues other than black and white!

2. What to wear to a bridal shower as a bride-to-be?

Tempting to wear jeans as the bride-to-be? I’d say lean into it! After all, this is YOUR party so wear whatever makes you feel the best!

From the Pinterest board, I saw many girls’ team white pants with personalized denim jackets with names.

That’s quite a look – simple and refreshing!

From the lush satin slip dress to fancy ostrich feather pajamas (yes, that’s a thing!), you can pretty much find everything from Etsy.

4. Go pastel for a bridal shower as a guest

When it comes to the signature color of the bridal shower, that has to be pastel and light shade colors.

Think dusty pink, buttermilk yellow, or cream that gives out a sense of airy, delightful vibes.

So if you are wearing pants, consider opting for lavender pants for an extra pop of fun.

Or else, team it with a pastel blouse that is equally flattering.

That way, people can tell you’ve given thought to your bridal shower look even in pants.

5. Stay formal and classy in chiffon culottes

If you want to look formal yet comfy in pants, picking the right texture is KEY.

Compared to denim and cotton, the chiffon one definitely worth the try.

Featuring the gorgeously lightweight and billowy fabric, they are perfect for a summer bridal shower.

And the best part? These chiffon culottes just look sophisticated and expensive-looking.

Below I’ve handpicked a flattering one with an elastic waistband. The comfiness is 10/10. Check this out!

Some girls may think floral pants are tricky to wear but actually, it’s NOT!

If you match the top and bottoms in a similar hue, it will look like a set and elongate your figure as a whole!

As a petite girl, I can tell it really makes a difference.

7. How to wear pants to a winter bridal shower

How to wear pants to a winter bridal shower?

Some ladies go for the black leather biker jacket for a cool look when the days chill out, but that doesn’t quite fit the bridal shower vibes.

As a perfect alternative, reach for a cute tweed jacket or a suede texture biker jacket in lighter hues – it just softens the look overall.

This is so random… BUT

hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?

This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU!

Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.

Ready? Here we go.

I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.

Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.

Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.

I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.

It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.

My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.

I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.

I AM perfect imperfection.

What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).

Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen

A turtleneck top and dress pants seem too plain for a bridal shower.

Throw on a beige sleeveless blazer and it will boost the aesthetic tenfold.

To maximize the effect, add a belt to the cinch at the waist.

I hope this look proves to you that wearing pants doesn’t have to look casual and laid back.

It’s all down to how we style it and let it SHINE!
