It can be tricky to know what to wear christening- do you go smart or smart casual? Can you wear navy or black? Fear not we’ve hand-picked the best outfits to fit your occasion...

Christenings don’t tend to be as formal as weddings but still have a smart dress code. Dresses with sleeves, smart trousers, and flattering tops will all help you look and feel great on the day.
If you’re close family or a godmother then it’s a good idea to check with the parents of the child and see how formal they’ll be.
Avoid dressing in top-to-toe navy or black, if you want to wear a dark suit make sure you wear a colourful blouse and pair it with a bright handbag or shoes.
Keep in mind too that most take place in draughty churches, so a coat or warm cover-up is a good idea whatever the time of year!
