What Should I Wear for Easter?

Traditionally, Easter is the catwalk for the new spring outfit on the curbside, in church, in the queue to be seated and/or at the buffet! On Easter, any cold gear is so yesterday because we consider Easter as a spring holiday. However, tradition is so old-fashioned!

Actually, you celebrated already many Easters so that you know better than your twenty something self or the young. Therefore, you should dress stylishly according to the weather for the sake of your own health. If the weather asks for cold weather gear, create a stylish winter-to-spring transition look from a mix or winter and spring pieces. Choose colors and/or prints that go with the spring vibe.

What to Consider When Dressing for Easter?

Easter is a family and religious event asking for timeless and modest clothing, respectively. When the celebration includes extended family a timeless family reunion outfit in a spring vibe is your best choice.

Stylist tip: Keep in mind that tons of photos will be taken. Therefore, last year’s dress won’t do the trick because family members most likely see you only so often. They will remember it!

Also consider that a brunch, or dinner is a social event asking for trendy attire. The squaring of the circle so to speak. 😉 Take the usual brunch dress code or dinner dress code of the restaurant in mind, and dress it up a notch. If extended family attends, limit yourself to one trendy item.

Stylist tip: When wearing only one trendy item go for a perennial trend like black-and-white or one of the fashion colors of the year. Years later nobody remembers that it was a fashionable color back then. But today they know.



How to Dress for Easter?

Go for a classic spring-inspired skirt-top combination or dress with floral or another timeless print and an “office appropriate” (read modest) neckline. Add one trendy statement piece, e.g., one of the colors of the year. Go for slingbacks, pumps or classic sandals with a heel no higher than 2.5 inch (5 cm) if the weather and place you goto permits. They are easy on your feet when standing in line for a long time.

Have a cardigan in a color that matches the dress to cover up. At this time a year, it actually is still too cold, for the spring dress you will wear. You also need the cardigan to stay warm, when you wear a light transitional coat. The easiest way for flawless legs is to wear pantyhose.

Steer away from any solid color dress in pastels. You don't want to look like a walking Easter egg! 😉 #Easteroutfit Click To Tweet

What Colors Are the Best to Wear on Easter?

Even tough it may be still cold, wear the pastels of your color palette. Caramel dress pants with a white blouse and a floral print scarf in pastels make a cute spring-inspired look. When pastels wash you out, stay with the lighter colors of your palette. Salmon pink looks great on almost everybody. Or try adding light spring inspired colors with a scarf.

Stay away from solid clothing in Easter egg colors.

Easter Outfit Inspirations for Cold Weather

In Fairbanks, boyfriends and husbands alike drop the female part of their party at the door of the restaurant because it is impossible to walk in heels or sandals in the muddy dirty unpaved parking lots. Furthermore, it is still way too cold for their ladies’ spring dresses as Easter outfits. Well, springtime in Alaska is 40 below.

Despite ditching the tights and boots and going bare leg in sandals or pumps is a Do in Fairbanks, I wore these weather-appropriate Easter outfits in the last couple of years. Thermal comfort and great style don’t contradict.
