What to Wear to an Afternoon Bridal Shower

What do you wear to an afternoon bridal shower? I'm more of a jeans and shirt kinda of girl...

Well now girls, this all depends on exactly what type of bridal shower it is. Is it a friends and family type shower where the future mother-in-law, grandmother, aunties and cousins will be attending? If so, think demure and ladylike. A very feminine dress or skirt and top, paired with strappy mid-heel sandals, understated accessories and an sleek handbag are the perfect choice.

Perhaps it is a girls-night-out type of bridal shower, mostly close girlfriends and perhaps held at a restaurant or bistro? A little more edgy style is perfectly appropriate here. A great pair of skinny jeans paired with skyscraper sandals or stiletto boots. Add a flirty top and a sheer lightweight cardi, a great statement necklace and a funky clutch and you are set. Or this amazing copper skirt from J. Crew, paired with a skinny tee or cami and flat gladiators — truly fun!

A weekend brunch of afternoon tea? Something a little more fun and flirty — perhaps a girly sundress paired with patent platforms, statement accessories and a fabulous handbag.
