What to Wear: Christening
Christenings, one of those rare occasions that get the whole family together. The last time you saw them you had probably decided that leggings made acceptable trousers and you had that khaki shade to your hair after jumping between blonde and brunette a little too often. The time has come to show them the â€˜new youâ€™ and lose those tragic nicknames. GMD has picked a few dresses which are sure to get as many cooâ€™s, ooâ€™s and awwâ€™s as the baby!
As itâ€™s a Christening and not a Wedding you won’t be getting any daggers off the bride if you wear cream. That’s why you should try our By Malene Birger Angulina Dress, the ultimate in demure glamour. With a black lace overlay and metallic thread adding playful sparkle.
If you want to make a colour popping statement and have the family talking for months afterwards, Â try our Carven Voluminous Skirt Dress. With a simple silhouette that has a futuristic edge the family will be gathering around you at the font rather than the baby!
If you want something more timeless and tailored hire our Marni Cady Dress. With an a-line shape and soft pleat detailing on the side you could not put a foot wrong. Just maybe donâ€™t get too close to the baby, you canâ€™t have drool ruining the nude silk!
Flowers always add a nice touch to a christening, so why not go for a floral print yourself. Our Marc By Marc Jacobs Wrap Silk Dress is ideal with its impressionist-style flower print and tie ribbon waist.
