I always love seeing couple style outfit ideas and thought today I’d share a recent photo of Chris and I. We were at my gorgeous nephew Theodore’s christening and it was a beautiful Sunday morning with family.

A lot of people wonder, “can you wear black to a christening” and the answer is yes, you can! It all depends on how you style it and the details are what make wearing black to a christening perfectly chic. I opted for an embellished A line dress, it had a fit-and-flare shape, which gave it a playful and feminine vibe. Of course the crystal embellishments made it light and pretty, so it wasn’t a serious or sombre black dress at all.

The finishing touch was a bright floral silk pair of heels with a bow on the front. These added a soft, fun element and lifted the dress from feeling too black. I know wearing a black dress is always chic, easy and something we all love, so on those occasions you wonder whether you can wear black, just add some sparkle and color. It’s that easy!

I also wanted to share my husband Chris’s outfit, as it’s a classic look with pieces every man needs in his wardrobe.

Do you have any tips for styling black dresses? What color accessories do you like to incorporate?

Also, I’d love to hear about your partner or husband’s style… is he naturally gifted in putting outfits together? Or do you lend a fashionable helping hand and shop for great pieces he’ll love?
