Ah, that Big Question again!
What to wear? – Story of my life: I have nothing to wear.
Because Easter occurs in the beginning of spring, it’s often symbolized by eggs, rabbits and baby chicks, which represent images of new life. Likewise, Easter attire typically evokes bright, spring-like colors, patterns and styles. To get into the right mood, I wanted to share some of my favorite options.
1. Wear all white. As simple as that. You can just play around with white items you already have, like a white top or blouse and a white blazer or trench, and bring in some white peg trousers to your wardrobe (like these). For that little more of a contrast you can go for black flats.
2. Wear a canary yellow bag. This might be the easiest styling trick of all. Yellow is one of my favorite colors of spring and a great yellow cross-body bag will make any ensemble look super cool and up-to-date. Also, it’s a great way of wearing your blacks and still have that little pop of spring right there hanging on your side.
3. Wear a pastel longline blazer. It’s not difficult at all to incorporate traditional Easter pastel tones into your outfit. Team a pastel longline blazer with some black skinnies and slipons. And voila, you got your pastel, but you’re not looking like a giant piece of cotton candy. Another thing that you want to keep in mind however, not everyone looks good in pastel tones. If pastels don’t flatter your skin tone, consider brighter colors. For example, instead of wearing a pastel yellow blazer, go for a canary yellow one that brightens your complexion.
4. Wear white sneakers. Or any pair of white comfort kicks really. In my opinion, heels can make an ensemble for Easter a little too dressed up. For me Easter is a time to dress up well-thought but not too festive, if that makes sense. With white sneakers on your feet you’re on trend, but not overdoing anything. And another big plus: girrrl, you definitely be mastering that backyard Easter egg hunt!
Have you already planned what to wear? To choose your clothing, it’s important to determine where and when your Easter events will be. I think I’m going to keep things very simple this year. No fuss, nothing to formal. We have a family (in-law) dinner on Easter Sunday and I’ll probably be visiting my sister the next day. Speaking of which, white will do, since I’m probably pushed to help her painting her living room (white). Good luck styling, ladies!
