Well yes I believe it is! For many this Sunday signals the date to pull out all the stops on spring clothing. The pinks and pastels, black and white spectator looks, and navy nautical styles will be everywhere this weekend. An Easter outfit is different from other dressy things you might wear because it will be worn at a religious service. Therefore, fresh, springy, and stylish yet fairly modest is the priority. Different places of worship have different atmospheres but I would certainly err on the side of being dressed up rather than dressed down, especially if visiting.
Now, with all the particulars out of the way, let’s get on to some choices.
A wonderful Easter dress is always such a pleasure to wear, to see, and to be seen in. The quintessential look.
And how lovely is this? The colors, the colors! A bit of an off-center draped neckline showing some collarbone will flatter everyone and it’s a great length. Wear a red or yellow heel for some fun. This will work for a summer wedding or a resort/cruise dinner and knowing you can use it on another occasion makes the $450 a little lighter on the pocket:) If you’d like to see more choices for Easter frocks, watch this Lucky Magazine slideshow. Net~a~Porter has some more beautiful dresses you might check out.
I don’t believe anyone said it had to be a dress though….and the word ‘pantsuit’ cannot apply to the suit below. I believe that word is only appropriate for something say….a Secretary of State might wear:) And don’t let this color, listed as “dill”, scare you….black, navy, cream, white, gray are all colors that will work with this. Beautiful and sharp.
If dressing casual is more your style you can still be Easter appropriate with a simple skirt and blouse or knit top.
This little H&M skirt is perfect both in the “it” color for the season and the flattering style. Very loosely patterned after a Marc by Marc Jacobs skirt I’ve seen. Can’t you see it with a polka dot top or navy and white strip blouse for a nautical effect?
Found a top and had to show it…add patent black pumps or peep toes….great look, especially for some 20~30 somethings!
Just one, oops, two more….how about a flowy, pleated maxi? Knife pleat skirts are all over the place this spring so you’ll definitely be on trend. In fact, check out another Lucky Magazine (on a Lucky kick!) slide show featuring some other pretty ones. Tim Gunn says no heels with maxis, keep ‘em soft and casual and I think I agree for this blush maxi skirt. A metallic flat sandal would work.
This sweet yellow skirt could probably take a heel as it’s hem is knee-length in the front and dips in the back. I like the idea of a soft white top with either skirt, maybe a loose weave sweater or a cotton knit. A sheer white or patterned blouse would pair nicely also.I hope this gives you some food for thought for your Easter weekend festivities and services. After reading this post, please don’t make the assumption that I have forgotten what this weekend is about. Although I will put plenty of thought into my attire, it will certainly not be my focus once I am at our Easter service. I am richly blessed and thankful for a death and a resurrection long ago. But, I will enjoy the “Easter Parade” of outfits before and after! Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the return of spring….or so the weather people say:)
As always, please call for a wardrobe consult, I am booking into late April. Thanks for reading,
