    In that case I would think a skirt/pants and nice top would be fine but obviously if it has been requested (a bit rude I think) that you not wear a skirt, check out the shops you mentioned and see what they have in the way of dresses.

    I was going to ask if it is night/day as that would change my answer but you answered for me!

    Daytime christening (I am assuming they don't want black to keep it brighter/more colourful. Strange though) I would wear a dress or top/skirt combo. Do you have anything flowy? I'd think something summery, light/flowy with nice sandals (no need for heels if you don't want) with simple jewellery or accessories if you are so inclined.

    Wtf... They are ordering you not to wear black or your existing skirts for a christening? If it was me I would tell them to get stuffed. Or attend wearing my skirt complete with a black top. They need to get over themselves - teach their baby that there are more important things in this world that material possessions. Like being good to your friends and not being a pompous *** to them.

    Hang on @VicPark do we actually know it's the parents hosting that have asked this of the OP? This hasn't been clarified has it?

    Who else would give someone instructions on what to wear? Either way I would be telling whoever it is to get stuffed.

    How would they know what every skirt she has looks like? I gathered it was her husband who had said not to wear one of her skirts (as opposed to not wearing a skirt if that makes sense).

    I honestly find the whole thing bizarre but until the op clarifies I wouldn't be jumping to conclusions.

    And not that I've christened a baby but I can understand no black at a christening.

    If I was told no black I wouldn't go. Nearly all my tops are black in various styles! And I like them 😬

    It's a christening surely people can work out what to wear without a dress code!

    It's a christening. It suppose to be about commuting to raise your child in the belief of following Christ. Not a bloody fashion prade. They only person in the room that matter what they wear (only in some religions) is the baby.
    Wear what you are comfortable in.
