There’s a difference between your ‘Sunday best’ and your ‘Easter Sunday best’. This special occasion calls for something dressier than your usual church attire. But what exactly should you wear when April 4th comes around? Here’s a round-up of the prettiest modest Easter clothing to suit every kind of service…
1. Keep Your Casuals Casual
Shop these styles: Blush Floral Hi-Lo Midi Dress, Mauve Floral Tiered Midi Dress
Embrace the start of spring with floaty florals in pastel hues. Perfect for mass or a family gathering, these prim and pretty dresses take you through to the end of summer. Feminine frills on the sleeves and high-low hem add some effortless detail, while a tiered dress teams flawlessly with a low heeled sandal. This is the quickest, easiest Easter look out there.
2. Light and Bright Pastels
Shop these styles: Colorblock Tiered Midi Dress, Swiss Dot Smocked Bodice Midi Dress
Have we mentioned we love pastels for spring? Easter egg shades are perfect for twirling into the new season, so add a pastel dress to your ‘Sunday best’ wardrobe. You can combine colors in a tiered midi with pretty, playful ruffles, or try wearing one block shade. So, what will it be – macaron pink? Eggshell green? Sunshine yellow? You choose.
3. Cool and Classic Monochrome
Shop these styles: Cream Leopard Print Woven Midi Dress, Black Abstract Ruffled Midi Dress
If timeless monochrome is more your style, go for dainty prints on a midi dress. A touch of leopard or an abstract pattern lends an element of fun to a black and white pattern. You’ll want to keep footwear simple here, opting for nude, cream or white sandals or courts. Opt for a purse that matches your shoes, and you’ll look inimitably chic.
4. Breezy, Boho Maxi Styles
Shop these styles: Floral Teal Button Up Maxi Dress, Pleated Ivory Tiered Maxi Dress
Is there anything dreamier than a breezy boho dress? Float to church in one of these maxi styles, paired with flat tan sandals and a matching clutch. Choose a floral print to keep in step with the start of spring. All-white also looks fresh and feminine for the new season, with a pastel purse for a pop of color.
5. Satin, Lace and Chiffon Skirts
Shop these styles: Rose Belted Satin Midi Skirt, Dusty Blue Lace Midi Skirt
6. Mommy + Me Midi + Maxi Dresses
Shop these styles: Jasmine + Mina Floral Dress | Mauve Square Neck Midi Dress
Is there anything sweeter than mommy + me style? You can mix and match styles between you and your daughters, or try some picture-worthy twinning between sisters. Soft florals and pleated polyester make for comfortable silhouettes you’ll both want to wear again and again. Twinning is winning, after all.
