WHAT TO WEAR TO A CHRISTENING

Hello everyone, I was lucky enough to be invited to Christening in Liverpool last weekend. It was such a joyous occasion with fantastic weather, a bouncy castle and a football?! What more could you want??….A stylish outfit, perhaps? Which begs the question…

WHAT TO WEAR TO A CHRISTENING?

A good question I think? What do you wear as a guest? I have a vast amount of clothes but I was still puzzled. It is a tricky situation to be in. In your role as a guest you can opt for a smart casual outfit. However, what sort of outfits? I have two smart casual outfits lined up to give you some inspiration. They are divided in to Spring / Summer and Autumn / Winter.

Check out my Guide to Dapper Dressing for more tips on What To Wear to Weddings, Graduations, Debs and The Races.

A SPRING SUMMER CHRISTENING 

The outfit I suggest here is based around one of my most inspired shopping buys…EVER! My River Island Linen Blazer and Waistcoat. Check out my tips on sale shopping “How To Bag A Bargain”. Looking good doesn’t have to be expensive guys. Spring / Summer calls for brighter colours and lighter fabrics. It doesn’t get much lighter than linen and much brighter than pink! I went with a Pink Linen Blazer with matching Waistcoat, a short sleeve grandad shirt, blue jeans and some tan suede brogues. This outfit screams SUMMER and STYLE! Perfect for a Christening or Summer Nights out.

Autumn / Winter Christening 

A Christening at this time of the year is all about darker tones. Navy is a great colour which suits most guys. I have opted for a Waistcoat inspired outfit. Waistcoats are experiencing a resurgence in popularity and rightly so in my opinion, I love wearing them. Adding a rust coloured knitted tie gives the outfit a pop of colour. A good guide for adding colour to your outfit in Autumn / Winter is the colour of leaves. Think rust auburn colours along with burgundy. These colours contrast well with Navy. Completing my outfit is Burgundy Brogues. These are great for smart casual events in Autumn and Winter. I am wearing Burton Menswear head to toe.
