Collaborative Post¦ Whether you are doing a photoshoot, posting the pictures online for friends and family to see, inviting friends and family over to your backyard, or throwing a virtual Zoom meeting from your bedroom, having a dress for your gender reveal is a must.
Not only will the right dress accentuate your blossoming bump, but it will also allow you to move around freely as you interact with your friends and family.
Here are a few styling tips that will help you pick the perfect dress for your gender reveal.
Assuming that you already know the baby’s gender, you may be tempted to choose a color that gives your friends and family an idea of the gender. However, try not to succumb to such a temptation. Instead, go for a neutral color like a purple maternity dress.
With a purple maternity dress, you can maintain the element of surprise. You can also choose a multicolored dress, as such a dress will keep everyone guessing and leave your guests surprised once you let the cat out of the bag.
Do not go for a purple maternity dress that is figure-hugging or extremely close-fitting. Also, avoid wearing leggings or skinny jeans. The most stylish and comfortable choice is a purple maternity dress like a wrap dress or a mini dress.
Also, go for supple, soft, and lightweight materials like linen, cotton, or silk. Or, choose a loose, flowy dress that will not restrict your movement.
Wear something casual like a purple maternity dress with an asymmetric line or a purple cocktail dress. You can add a shawl, wrap, or scarf to add a touch of pizzazz to your outfit. You can also wear a tiered or ruffled dress as these appear elegant and stylish on your bump.
If you do not want to wear a maxi dress for your gender reveal, you can wear a calf-length dress. Some calf-length dresses are sleeveless, and others have stylish sleeves like:
- Butterfly, and
- Puffed sleeves.
These trendy sleeves will add to your dress’s style and silhouette.
Whether you are revealing the gender of your baby to your friends and family or are finding out for the first time yourself, you need a dress that will make you look your absolute best without giving a hint at the gender.
With the above tips, you will be able to pick the perfect dress for your gender reveal without breaking a sweat.
