What to Wear for Easter

Wondering what to wear this Easter? With celebrations taking us from church services to egg hunts and phenomenal meals at home, this time for family and togetherness will undoubtedly look different this year. With our sacrifices for safety, Easter festivities will be smaller in size, but that doesn’t mean that our style moments have to decrease. It’s time to talk about Easter outfits for women.   

Traditional Easter Outfit Ideas

Traditionally, Easter is a time to dress to impress. Casual clothing takes a day off, and fancy dresses and suits take center stage. Our Easter attire may be more relaxed this year for virtual celebrations, socially distant meals and living room egg hunts. All you need for an impressive Easter outfit are color, print and unique spring trend details that we just happen to have wrapped up in an Easter bow for you.

Can you wear white on Easter?

Reported as early as the 1800s, a style rule suggested that white shouldn’t be worn before Memorial Day or after Labor Day, leaving a five-month window to wear the color in the warmer seasons. While we appreciate the sentiment behind this rule, it’s 2021, and clearly, rules are meant to be broken. We express our style in the way we choose, including wearing all colors throughout the year. While we highlight the color trends for every season, the use of color goes hand-in-hand with your personal style. Our rule of thumb? Wear the colors you want, when you want to. Plain and simple.

What colors are on trend this Easter?

What are the color trends for Easter 2021, you ask? Modern neutrals like almond and pewter lead the way with spicy hues, including mocha and cinnamon close behind. Beautiful shades of green, including Stitch Fix’s color of the year, Aloe, will also be popular. Additionally, you’ll be seeing bright, bold colors such as sun orange and Mykonos blue incorporated into spring looks everywhere. 

What do you wear to the Egg Hunt?

Looking for inspiration on what to wear for an Easter egg hunt? Consider the jogger set. Perhaps the most casual of all Easter day activities, there are many ways to hunt for eggs in style. Look for a pastel or printed jogger set. These are perfect for an early morning in-house egg hunt with your household and a comfortable, yet stylish way to celebrate the start of Easter day.

For socially distant egg rolls outdoors, fresh layers are key. Try a wide-leg jumpsuit with a textured cardigan, printed coatigan or crisp utility jacket. The boyfriend blazers is also a spring trend that layers nicely over your favorite pair of high-rise denim and a printed shirt. Add a neutral pair of fashion sneakers, and you are egg roll ready. Trying to find the right prints for spring? Look for stripes, painted watercolor-inspired blossoms and ditsy florals. 

What do you wear for Easter Brunch?

We brunch hard, and this is especially the case on Easter. Easter brunch is where you can show off your favorite spring trends. Often following a church service, getting together for a yummy mid-day meal is an Easter must for many. This year’s at-home or socially distant versions can be just as stylish as years past by incorporating detail into your Easter women’s outfits, starting with spring trends featuring gorgeous fringe, cut-outs, embroidery and balloon sleeves. Style elements like these will be abundant this spring and instantly dress up a casual bottom like utility pants, denim skirts or cropped trousers. Want to add another pop of wow to your Easter look? Don’t be afraid to wear multiple pieces with unique details. Pair an asymmetrical skirt with a smocked top or even a ruffle blouse tucked into a paper bag waist pair of jeans. Add neutral flats or heels, and you are all set. Details are everything when it comes to 2021 looks you wear for Easter.  


What do you wear for Easter dinner?

Whether virtual or in safe, small groups, Easter dinner is a time for fantastic food and fashion. Comfy-chic maxi and tiered dresses are excellent options. Add a cardigan or knit blazer along with simple accessories to complete a comfortable, elevated look for your Easter dinner celebrations.

Not into maxi dresses? Midis are a hot trend for spring and a great length for Easter dinner. Try pairing a vertical stripe midi skirt with a dusty pink ruched top. Wear a bold midi wrap dress with a mini geo print blazer. The options are endless when creating combinations that highlight midi lengths. Don’t be afraid to finish off your at-home Easter dinner look with a chic pair of fuzzy slippers that complement your outfit. Who said that comfort couldn’t be fashionable?
