Easter fashion: 4 great dresses for Easter Sunday
Our clocks have sprung forward and the official first day of Spring was on March 20.
But, there’s just something about the Easter holiday — with the big hats, the pastels and the florals — that make it feel like the official start of the spring fashion season.
Whether you’ve got church, brunch, egg hunts — or a combination of all three — on your Easter calendar, greet the holiday in style with these spring looks.
Pretty in pastels:
Cue the pretty pastels for spring. If your closet has enough stripes and florals, play with a new pattern on this year’s Easter dress: Geometric prints. Diamond patterns are definitely trending this year, especially in softer, pastel hues. The crisp design on this dress make it the perfect candidate for your work-wear wardrobe, as well. Just add on a blazer in gray or taupe and a structured handbag for a work week look. Alyx Sleeveless Dress, on sale $24.99 (plus Cash Back), JcPenney.com
Florals are a perfect print for anytime of the year. (In the colder months, we’ve been embracing darker, moodier blooms). This perennial print lightens up for spring and we’re loving the airy, whimsical buds in lavender and gold on this cami dress. If your Easter is action-packed (read: helping oversee the egg hunt), this dress is casual enough that it can be worn with a denim jacket and some flat sandals.

Looking for a fresh spin on florals? Over-sized blooms get a pretty watercolor effect on this chiffon dress with a classic, shift silhouette. Go ahead, add a wide-brimmed hat for a classic-meets-modern Easter look. Vince Camuto Floral Chiffon Shift Dress, $148 (plus Cash back), Nordstrom.com
A must-have spring staple? A pretty dress in a solid color that can serve as a blank palette for all kinds of outfits. The boat neck on this Karen Scott short-sleeve is perfect for spring. Dress this dress up with a sparkly statement necklace or patterned scarf. Pink paired with navy is a fresh take on the nautical look that’s popular this time of year.
