Keep things simple
Whilst white is the traditional color for a baby christening outfit you can dress your little one in pastels or creams. Alternatively choose an outfit with a hint of color, such as a white dress with navy piping or a pale blue Oxford shirt.

Combine jeans or pants with a polo and sneakers and you’ve got a look that makes a statement at grandma’s birthday celebration or a friend’s pool party.
