Easter Outfit Inspiration

When I was little, I never fully appreciated wearing my Easter dresses. Every year I was dolled up in puffy, floral dresses, hair bows, an assortment of wide-brimmed hats, tights, and white Mary Janes. In pictures, these outfits are accessorized with a stiff smile that clearly says, “I hate this.”

But now that I’m older, wiser, and in full control of my wardrobe, I’ve come to love any and every chance to get dressed up, and Easter is one of my favorites.

Even if it’s cold or rainy, it’s still the first holiday in the spring, and I relish the chance to trot out my bold florals and bright colors for the first time after many longs months swathed in sweaters and scarfs.

This year, come snow or sun, I’ll be sporting my favorite full midi skirt with a nautical-inspired striped tank. This bright colored skirt is so fun to wear, flattering on almost any shape, and completely appropriate for church in the morning – an Easter outfit must. Whenever I put on this skirt, I just want to put my hands in the pockets and swish it around like a little girl playing dress-up. Clearly, I’ve come a long way since my days as a fancy dress hater.

The navy and white striped tank is a great neutral print that balances the boldness of the skirt, but its subtle nautical theme is perfect for spring. Even though it’s a cropped shirt, the high neckline keeps it classy for Easter Sunday celebrations.

To keep my look feeling fresh and easy, I pulled my hair back into a neat bun. Between church, egg hunts, way too much candy, and any possible run-ins with the Easter bunny, I need a hairstyle that won’t get in the way.

To bring some color to my face (since I’m still tragically pale) I added a pop of bright red-orange lipstick.

The last touch is a pair of neutral heels. I went with a skin-colored pair of Mary Janes, reminiscent of my Easter shoes of old. It just wouldn’t be Easter without them.
