In light of Easter at the end of this month, this week is about Easter dresses! I figured I’d post it earlier rather than later in case you wanted to order anything online. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, many of these are great dresses for the spring. And if you do celebrate Easter but aren’t into dresses, check out last week’s spring skirts post for skirts that can be turned into a cute Easter outfit.
Though I celebrate Easter now, I didn’t while growing up. Over the years I’ve heard people share their Easter traditions and picked up that they can range from very relaxed and casual to more formal and fancier, so I chose dresses along those lines.
The first row is very casual dresses that can be worn for "everyday" wear. The second row is dresses that are slightly dressier. The third row is dresses that are a little nicer or more formal, and can probably even be worn to spring weddings.
These would be great for both Easter and everyday wear.
Option 1 (Target) - I love that the background is taupe instead of white and that the flowers are bigger and less detailed instead of intricate and delicate. It would pair wonderfully with a pink or purple cardigan, but would also look great with yellow or mustard, or even green.
Option 2 (Old Navy) - Pair this with a cardigan of any color and nude wedges for Easter or a birthday or bridal shower. Or easily wear it with my go-to everyday casual combo for spring dresses: denim jacket and sandals. Comes in a navy floral and a black floral, as well as four solids!
Option 3 (Old Navy) - While 9 out of 12 of these dresses are florals, I don't think Easter dresses need to be florals. This eyelet dress has great details, comes in a bunch of colors including a fantastic yellow, and would be a great dress for Easter. Pair it with a pink, red, or white statement necklace...or even tr yellow.
Option 4 (Old Navy) - Pair this with a great statement necklace and nude wedges for an Easter look, or choose a pendant necklace, denim jacket, and sandals for a cute casual everyday look.
P.S. Any of these would look fantastic with a denim jacket.
These are a small step up from the first row, but in addition to being great for Easter they would work well for bridal showers and baby showers or even some outdoor spring and summer weddings.
Option 5 (Target) - I've shown this one before, but it's so cute that I had to show it again. Pair it with any colored cardigan: magenta, purple, pink, red, yellow, green, mint, turquoise, grey, and wedges for Easter. Or add some shiny jewelry and strappy sandals for an outdoor wedding. You could also get fun with pops of color in your shoes!
Option 6 (Old Navy) - I don't know what it is, but I love how the print is only at the bottom. This would look great with yellow, teal, mint, green, or white. Add a chunky statement necklace or a simple, delicate one that hits above the bust.
Option 7 (Old Navy) - This is another dress that you could spunk up with colored shoes, like yellow, coral, or green. Or, keep things more neutral with a tan, coral, or green cardigan. This could also work with a light colored blazer.
Option 8 (Target) - Pair this with a pink or green cardigan, or the pastel versions for a lighter look. Or, dress it up for evening with a black blazer and black, pink, blush, or purple pumps.
These are great dresses for more formal or fancier Easter traditions, and they'd also be great for parties and weddings.
Option 9 (ModCloth) - Bold, but modern floral print. Try it with a gold necklace and red or magenta pumps. Or tone it down with a navy cardigan and neutral shoes.
Option 10 (Kohl's) - I love this option for a dressier Easter celebration. There are so many colors to pair it with based on the print, or throw a white blazer over it.
Option 11 (Kohl's) - This is a great option for Easter as well as for a wedding. Pair it with a white or navy cardigan, or even a grey one. Add some simple jewelry and you're set!
Option 12 (ModCloth) - I loooove this as a non-floral option for Easter (and for spring). You could also wear this to a wedding with some gold jewelry.
It's a good thing I'm pregnant, or I'd have a really hard time choosing between these! If I could wear these, I'd probably go for 5 or 12 for Easter and the whole top row for the rest of spring. :D
