Last year, I shared a colorful Easter brunch in the garden and shared my tips for setting the table, creating the menu, and a hint at what to wear. I have another wonderful Easter entertaining post coming tomorrow but, before I share that, I wanted to share a ton on Easter style: how to dress for Easter including outfit ideas for casual Easter outfits, semi casual Easter outfits, and formal Easter outfits. I opted for a formal Easter outfit in this post as that’s what I usually wear on Easter Sunday to church and then to brunch with my family. But I found some lovely alternatives for people that celebrate in a more casual style.
Easter is one of those cheerful daytime holidays. It usually takes places on a beautiful spring day (depending on where you live!). As I mentioned above, in my family we celebrate with a morning at church. Then a festive, lively brunch before usually going on a long, leisurely walk or bike ride to help counteract all the eating at brunch. On Easter, some people dress for church while others dress for backyard Easter egg hunts so the vibe can range from dressy dresses and heels to casual white jeans and cute tops. Think about which category you fall into… below I’ve rounded up outfits for causal, semi casual, and formal Easter affairs!
How to Dress for Easter
Casual Easter Outfit
When it comes to casual Easter outfits, I think white jeans with a cute top (or sweater if it’s cold where you are) and simple sandals are the perfect look. I’m currently in love with these white jeans!
Semi Casual Easter Outfit
Semi casual Easter outfits are a bit dressier than casual Easter outfits. If you fall into this category, then I suggest a jumpsuit, a midi skirt, or a cute cotton dress (or a dress of any casual material, aka not silk etc.). Then add a pair of ballet flats, loafers (if you’re in the cold), or low heels.
Formal Easter Outfit
My Easter outfit falls under the Formal Easter style category. I fell in love with this pink and yellow ruffle floral dress the moment I laid eyes on it. I’m planning to wear it again in a few weeks to a bridal shower I have in Arizona. It’s perfect for all dressy springtime occasions. I paired it with a pair of pink espadrilles but could have easily opted for a more formal heel as my Easter shoes. I love all the colors of Easter. So I decided to play on that with my rainbow clutch (aka the cutest purse I’ve ever owned!).
