What to wear to Easter services varies by community, but there are some good rules to consider to ensure you outfit is appropriate. All five of these dresses have the first rule in common, which is, when in doubt, go midi. Patterns are always welcome, but as a second rule, you may want to avoid really busy or overly bright combinations. Florals are absolutely perfect as a pattern option. These floaty florals from Windsor and Sugarlips are spring fresh. That’s not to say that you can’t wear bold brights (it IS spring, after all!). But as a third rule, it’s best to steer clear of anything neon or fluorescent (as trendy as those may be right now). This bright, coral polka dot dress by London Times and Elie Tahari’s sophisticated cyclamen flutter sleeve are great color pop choices.




For the ladies who brunch, we wish you sunny skies, great conversation and bottomless mimosas. The best wardrobe vibe for a great brunch dress is upscale but not too fussy. Patterned midis like Windsor’s periwinkle florals and Joie’s pretty boho-inspired in blue are both ideal for warmer climes. Of course if the weather is still a little cooler, sleeved beauties like Joie’s rosy plunge neck midi or Windsor’s ethereal chiffon dress will keep your shoulders cozy. Looking to make a true entrance? The Maybelle maxi dress is head to toe luxe that doesn’t take itself too seriously with its playful floral pattern.




Whether it’s family or friends (or both), nothing beats a casual Easter backyard barbecue. No need for overthinking in the wardrobe department. Go for something short and cute. Windsor’s blue and green spaghetti-strap floral is perfect for a warm day in the sun, as is their Freshly Picked floral skater dress in white and purple. Joie’s sierra orange short dress adds a few layers of sleeve if you desire a bit more protection. Of course if you desire even more coverage up top, Versona’s beautiful boho white and red embroidered dress is a real stunner. And of course, a romantic, all-white dress with sweetheart neckline to boot, is a great choice.




Families coming together over the holiday table is classic Easter. What better excuse to get a little fancy with pretty midi? You can go spring-inspired with florals like Lulu’s green a-line or boho inspired as with Joie’s paisley and cream or their navy and half-moon pattern. If you prefer something more structured, Windsor’s baby blue lace midi has a tailored silhouette. Something more relaxed? Joie’s wrap waist¬† midi allows you to adjust as you wish, and the clever polka-dot pattern is actually a series of celestial stars…how heavenly!




Are you “hopping” from event to event this holiday? No need for a wardrobe change with these five multi-tasking options. Going straight from brunch to family friendly outdoors? DVF’s wrap dress and Windsor’s hot pink halter dress will get you there with nothing but a quick change of footwear. Heading directly from services to brunch with friends? Windsor’s dreamy floral midi and Elie Tahari’s shirt dress need only a lightweight cardigan for services and then voila! you are ready for mimosas. Have a seriously full plate of places to be? Joie’s Courtney Midi is a fashion chameleon. A chic belt makes it perfect for services. Add a fun hat and brunch may begin. Then trade in your dressy heels for comfy flat sandals and your casual family outfit is complete.
