Ah, Easter: the ultimate spring fashion show—AKA time to show your family who the stylish one really is. I love Easter for many reasons, but one of the big ones is that it’s the perfect time to pull out those beautiful spring dresses in pastels and florals (yes, even if it’s still a little chilly, like it often is here in Chicago) and start planning Easter outfits for the whole family

There are so many awesome spring statement pieces to shop at our favorite stores right now—and I seriously want to buy them all. Of course, floral dresses are really hanging on as the trend for spring (and, you know, all the time). Styled with some of this year’s must-have pieces—like fun sneakers, raffia accents, and bold accessories—a pretty floral dress is the perfect look for Easter. Or for a more casual option, go with wide-leg jeans and an easy top. How will we ever decide which outfit to wear?

Most importantly, all of these looks are comfortable enough to take you from a family Easter brunch to chasing after your kids in the neighborhood Easter egg hunt. Here’s your guide to what to wear on Easter, plus six mom-friendly Easter outfits to try this year.

What to Wear on Easter

Dressing for Easter can be a difficult task. Do you opt for something casual, or do you go for a more formal outfit? How do you make something look “springy” if it’s still cold where you live? If you want to branch out from that trusty wrap dress in the back of your closet, how do you update your look while still feeling classic? The six outfits below were put together with all of these questions in mind. There are a lot of choices for Easter looks, which is why we made sure these outfit ideas have something for everyone—from casual to formal.

If you’re not sure where to start, any floral patterns or spring pastel colors are a great foundation for your Easter outfit. Take into account your Easter plans—whether that be getting together with family or friends, attending a church service, or simply spending the day relaxing at home—and plan your outfit around the occasion. However, there is absolutely no shame in getting all dressed up to hang out in your own kitchen. 

All of our favorite places to shop have tons of options when it comes to Easter outfits. We’ve included picks from reader and editor go-to stores such as Old Navy, Madewell, H&M, Gap, Target, Abercrombie, and more. Each outfit was also curated to be sure that you can continue to wear the pieces past Easter Sunday and into the rest of spring and summer as well. 

So while you might still have to plan Easter baskets for the little ones, brunch recipes for day of, and the next family tradition you want to start, getting dressed that Sunday morning is now one less thing you have to worry about.
