What to Wear on Easter Sunday

Easter is this Sunday, and it marks the time to break out your spring wardrobe once and for all. Yay! Whether you celebrate Easter or not, this is the weekend we welcome spring with pastel colors, springtime dresses, and open-toe sandals. Say good-bye to those winter layers!


Now is the time to officially switch over your wardrobe, if you haven’t done so already. Pack away your scarves and sweaters and unpack those dresses, shorts, and tank tops. Your wardrobe should look revived with bright colors, summer sandals, and printed spring dresses.

Even if you don’t attend religious services this weekend, the two Easter Sunday outfits I’ve curated will also work for brunch with your family. And as usual, this week’s What to Wear style cheat sheet gives you two options -- one budget-friendly outfit and one that’s splurge worthy. Nothing says spring like a floral-printed dress, so let’s build our Easter Sunday outfits around two styles by Loft and Banana Republic.

Easter Sunday -- Budget Friendly

I love the details of this drapey floral bouquet dress with a tie back and cap sleeves. The dress makes a big statement in Moroccan Red, so the rest of our outfit is subdued -- like these Banana Republic gladiator tie-up sandals in nude with a block heel and an off-white cardigan sweater by Gap. A simple gold knot bracelet that sits daintily on your wrist and a light pink, gold-chained crossbody bag are our finishing touches.

Easter Sunday -- Splurge Worthy

A fitted bodice and flare dress with pockets by Banana Republic is the perfect splurge-worthy Easter dress. The floral print is beautiful, and don’t you just adore a dress with pockets? I know I do! Thank the style gods that thick block heels are trendy again, because our feet will be grateful for these nude/pink strappy sandals by J.Crew. An Easter egg–colored cardigan sweater is the perfect throw-over if the morning is chilly, and the "Jackie" design by J.Crew is one of my all-time favorites. Our accessories include a crossbody bag with woven leather detail and a cuff bracelet in gold and gray.
