A bit of a different post, but someone requested that i do a post on 'what to wear to a Christening' as they're going to one in July. I was more than happy to oblige and below are 3 looks that i have put together which i think would be great and appropriate for a Christening. Everything featured is currently stocked on their online stores.
I don't know why, but i think for a Christening, you can never go wrong with a maxi dress. It covers you up quite a lot and considering your going to be in a church you've got to dress respectfully as you don't want to be seen as offending anyone. This is quite a simple look. The pinky-coral colour is beautiful and is a great colour on the majority of skin tones. It has a high neck-line and goes in at the waist. meaning that it'll sit really nice on you. Considering your arms would be on show, a cute black/grey kimono is a great piece of outerwear, lighter than a typical jacket or blazer, but should still allow you to be warm, as well as fashionable. Accessory wise i stuck to a silver theme, with dangly earrings as the jewellery element. The block colour dress and kimono is enough colour, and any other accessory would be too overpowering, a simple pair of silver heels just brings this outfit together, creating a appropriate, fashionable outfit for a Christening.
When attending a Christening, white is usually the most seen colour that the guests are wearing. Bearing this in mind, i thought i'd incorporate a bit of white into this outfit. This blouse is beautiful, it's got lovely little detailing around the cuff and the bow along with the frills is just so attractive, really making this blouse stand out. To jazz this up, and to steer away from the typical 'all white' i thought this green tube skirt, with the blouse tucked in a little really gives a great bit of oomph to the outfit, making the blouse and skirt pop off eachother, making this a fantastic outfit. A little gold knot belt would just add a nice touch to this outfit as opposed to blinging it up with jewellery, because you've got remember that it has to be appropriate for a Christening. The gold really looks great against green and white, so really compliments the outfit. I decided on white court shoes to top this outfit off, simple and sophisticated.
This dress is beautiful, i love how it looks like the bottom has been dipped into blue dye. I think it'd look great for a Christening, as it's got the classical white colour incorporated, just with a twist. Despite the white dress with the blue at the bottom, i decided to go for nude accessories in the form of heels, earrings and a blazer. I think the nude would really compliment the blue, and wouldn't be too overpowering, whereas if i'd decided to make blue the prime colour, you may end up looking like a blue berry. The heels have the ankle strap, which isn't something i'd usually pick to go with any outfit, but i think with this dress and the blazer, it would really look good with the dress. I've kept the jewellery element simple again by just adding some simple dangly earrings.
