Babylist is the baby registry that lets you add any item from any store including the best baby dresses of this year. Whether you're looking for fancy/formal dresses, or cute dresses for your newborn, these are the perfect classic picks for your registry. Best Baby Dresses

The right dress can really make the (little) lady. Even though your baby (or baby-to-be) may be months and months away from being able to twirl, that doesn’t mean she won’t look sweet in a dress.

When it’s time to pick pieces for your registry or to dress your little one, think about the wearing occasion first and foremost.

Register for easy cotton styles for babies under six months, since they won’t be on the move quite yet—though these will also be handy when they’re starting to walk. It’s also a great idea to think about the holidays, when photo shoots are at their prime. Family members will love to splurge on a keepsake dress for special occasions, so add one (or a few) to your registry in sizes baby can grow into.

We’ve rounded up our favorite dress brands to keep in mind while creating your registry and to shop from as your little one grows. Whether it’s a newborn photo shoot, baby’s first Instagram appearance or their birthday, here are our top shop picks.

Cute Enough for Grown-ups

Whimsical prints and punchy colors are the cornerstone of every new collection from Tea (they release two a year!). Smaller baby dresses almost always come with bloomers, and you can pair every dress style with a pair of tights or leggings to wear on cooler days. But the question remains—when will these be in our size?

Ready for Play

The bamboo-and-spandex blend dresses from KicKee Pants are unbelievably soft. Founder Aerin Nicole keeps play in mind when she comes up with new designs, so every dress looks cute, but is easy for baby to explore in, too. Pair your favorite one with leggings so it can be worn year-round.

Cute on a Budget

High in fashion, but not hard on the wallet, we always look to Old Navy for dresses that mirror what’s in style for mom. It’s easy to pick up a piece for $15 or less (and they have lots of sales, too!) so you never have to feel guilt on a piece she might outgrow before the season is over.
