Christening attire is much like what you would wear to a wedding, So that means you have to be dressed in your finest occasion wear that is comfortable enough to last your through a long day. However unlike a wedding, a christening doesn't have all of the weird superstitions and colour based rules. So that means from a fashion point of view, you're allowed to wear whatever makes you look fabulous. Hurray!
When dressing for any occasion, you need to make sure that you get something that you feel 100% comfortable in. For family orientated events, always opt for a piece that is not too revealing or short. You will be in a church after all. Remember the golden rule to always select an item of clothing that suits your shape and own personal style. You are wearing the piece, not the other way around.
Now lets talk christening colours. Summer florals, creams, soft silver and gold are always a winner for christenings. However we say be a bit more daring and lean toward bright, vibrant hues that will make you stand out, because unlike a wedding, it doesn't really matter if you upstage a baby. Wonderful white is only good if you've got a bit of a summer glow, otherwise it can wash you out.
