What To Wear To A Christening

Share

We are obsessed with this gorgeous image that was released today of Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte, taken by Mario Testino. The Duchess clearly nailed it with her posh baptism ensemble and inspired us to opt for a pretty pale palette the next time we’re dressing for a christening or bris. The formal element of these occasions calls for a silhouette that covers your shoulders and that isn’t too short, so pay special attention to the length of your dress. Accessorize with neutral heels, classic pearl jewelry and if an eccentric hat is out of your comfort zone, go for a pretty hair comb. Here, 5 beautiful dresses inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge.
