Easter Sunday, one of spring’s loveliest holidays is right around the corner! Juggling your multiple roles as (undercover) Easter Bunny, chef, egg-dyer, social director, and basket constructor leaves little time for outfit planning. Selecting an Easter outfit is actually quite simple, however, if you follow the golden rule: you can never go wrong with floral patterns, pastels, and/or wicker accessories. (Save the bonnets for the little ones, though.) Here are 4 foolproof ideas for what to wear on Easter Sunday:
Easter Church Service
If there was ever a time to get decked out in your Sunday best, it’s Easter Sunday. Think: classy, sophisticated, and ladylike. A floral patterned dress is a sweet staple. To stand out amongst the garden of other floral frocks blooming in the pews, wear a dress with a darker color palette. Reflect the celebratory spirit of the service with bright, cheerful accents.
Easter Sunday Brunch
Like most holidays, a joyful part of celebrating Easter is the yummy food. If you’re going to brunch with your peeps, give your look an easy, breezy vibe with a pleated maxiskirt. A flowy blouse can accommodate a few extra slices of ham. Floral print shoes add just the right touch of spring, and a wicker purse is perfect for carrying a mini-stash of marshmallow eggs.
Easter Egg Hunt
If you plan to spend the holiday hopping around the yard, helping the kids fill up their baskets with Easter eggs, denim is perfectly acceptable. (Especially if you have last-minute egg-dying or gift-wrapping to do.) A pretty floral blouse dresses up your look, while flat oxfords allow you to navigate through the yard with confidence. For an eggstra-special touch, add a delightful basket-like handbag!
Church to Backyard
For some of us, Easter Sunday includes a worship service, egg hunt, and an early dinner. In that case, you need an outfit that can quickly transition between settings. Floral pants and a chic tee shirt provide comfort without sacrificing style. At church, dress up your ensemble with a structured blazer and heels. Afterwards, slide into ballet flats and don a denim jacket.
Regardless of your plans or faith, we wish you and yours a very Happy Easter! XOXO
