CHOOSING what to wear for a christening can be tricky because the dress code isn’t as clear as weddings or funerals. Whether you’re going to be a godmother, or simply attending your neighbour’s cousin’s baby’s christening, you need to scrub up well – it’s a celebration after all. The Royal Family together for Prince Louis’ christening Most christenings take place between spring and autumn, so you can opt for floaty dresses, lightweight skirts and linen suits. A shared rule is to avoid darker colourways, instead choose lighter hues and pastels to bring bright positive vibes. You can even wear white too…it won’t cause a stir like it would at a wedding. If you’re off to a church for the christening, you should cover your shoulders for traditional reasons, but also to keep warm as they can be extra draughty too. To help you answer that age-old question of what to wear, we’ve selected some fabulous outfits that you can buy online now. Sweet and Sophisticated  If you need an excuse you splash out on a luxurious jacket, make it be a christening. Chanel-inspired tweeds never go out of style – you can wear this L.K Bennett version to weddings, on the weekend and even to work. Believe it or not, bodycon dresses can look immaculate for posh days out too, especially teamed with sleek leather mules. Top tip: a loud look goes miles without jewellery.

This outfit just goes to show, if it ain’t broke why fix it. The great thing about an all-white ensemble is that you can team it with any coat without worrying about clashing. And we love a hounds-tooth blazer. Marry sophistication and style by adding a pop of colour with pretty, vibrant heels.

And the long hemline will help balance a mini dress to be christening-appropriate. Mules always smarten up a look as well, super high heels are more girls night out than daytime baptism.  Bardot babe Yellow Ruffle Bardot Mini Dress, £46 from River Island – buy here Pleat Detail Linen-Blend Trench, £89.99 from Mango – buy here Office Message Feature Heel Mules, £39 from Office – buy here Mango Plastic Round Bag, Tortoise Shell, £48 from – buy here Thick Tortoiseshell Hoop Drop Earrings, £14.50 from Topshop – buy here Polka Dot Princess Polka dot print dresses are always a classic option, they’re playful, preppy and a summery wardrobe staple – why buy something you’ll only get one wear out of?

WITH long working days and stressful lives, a helpful bag for work that organises everything, is one less thing to worry about. The best work bags are ones that are roomy enough for all your essentials and will easily house your laptop, to make the commute less of a hassle. Your days in the office can be made more stylish and organised with a sleek but practical work bag Totes come in all shapes and sizes, but what we think makes a great work bag is one with plenty of pockets allowing you to keep things in order. Another handy option is one you can wear comfortably over your shoulder or across your body, as it leaves your hands free for those all-important emails you want to finish on your way home on your phone. If you’re hoping to trade your old battered bag in for a sleek new number, there are plenty out there to choose from, however big your budget. Below we’ve narrowed down the best women’s work bags based on our expert opinion to help make shopping for a new one a whole lot easier. Best bargain This bargain buy will comfortably fit a 15-inch laptop inside and can be bought in nude and tan colours This laptop bag might be a bargain buy, but its sleek minimalist shape accented with gold hardware certainly doesn’t look it. Nobody will know the faux leather finish isn’t the real deal. It has an inside zipped sleeve that’ll fit a 15-inch laptop inside and keep it secure, while the outer sections are still roomy enough for all your other working day essentials. Laptop Shopper Bag, £29.99 at New Look – buy here Best backpack Backpacks distribute the weight evenly across your shoulders so will make for a more comfortable commute like this Aston Ziptop leather one from Accessorize No longer reserved for school children and hikers, backpacks started circulating the fashion circuit in 2014 and nobody’s looked back since. This sauve suede and leather isn’t just pretty, it’s practical too and will keep your hands free on the daily commute – just think about all those extra emails and, let’s be honest, all those extra Whatsapp messages you can send in that time. Work bags, often weighed down with books, files and diaries, not to mention your water bottle and lunch, can get pretty heavy. A rucksack enables you to spread the weight across two shoulders instead of one. Need to take it off on the underground? The handy top handle allows you to clutch it easily. Ashton Ziptop Leather Backpack, £65 at Accessorize –  buy here Best desk to dinner bag The contrasting handles on this Matilda Shoulder Bag top it off with a stylish high note A bag you can walk straight from your desk to dinner and drinks with is always handy and you won’t feel too corporate while you sip your Thursday night cocktail. This versatile accessory can be used as a handbag or shoulder bag thanks to its detachable strap and top handles. Sharp lines, an accordion-style inner and playful blue snakeskin effect handles come together for a fashion-forward silhouette. Smart, yes, but not too serious. Zipped compartments inside will keep your house keys and phone safe, too. Matilda Shoulder Bag, £60 at Harrods – buy here Most practical Fiorelli Campbell Cross Body Tote is a minimalist bag that has plenty of handy pockets and compartments In a chic but understated dove grey hue, this bag is a smart low-key tote that will complement your working wardrobe without looking too corporate.

This real leather bag from Ted Baker is beautifully slimline yet still holds a 15 inch laptop. The two zipped compartments are handy for your other workday essentials and will keep your keys and phone safe. Use the detachable strap to wear it cross body or adjust the top handle length to wear it in-hand or on your shoulder.   Juliea Adjustable Handle Leather Laptop Bag, £229 at Ted Baker – buy here Best investment bag At over £1000 this Mulberry Heritage Bayswater is a pricey pick but its a real investment piece Much loved by A-listers from Kate Moss and Meghan Markle to Blake Lively and Alexa Chung, you just know the Bayswater bag is a must-have.

Made from pebbled leather that will only better with age, it’s punctuated with Mulberry’s signature silver postman lock and a mini padlock charm. It’s roomy inside too, perfect if you’ve got folders and books aplenty to carry, and the concealed interior buckles can be adjusted to create more or less space to suit.
