EASTER SUNDAY SERVICES

For many people, Easter mass is second only to Christmas in terms of attendance. While it varies by community, the general rule of thumb is to dress “church appropriate”. For men, that means no shorts, a nice buttoned up shirt and in some cases a jacket or even a hat. For women, nothing too short or revealing. In both instances, Easter service is also about shedding off the dull winter drab colors and spicing up your wardrobe with lots of spring-inspired color pops.

Lulus, In My Dreams Mauve Floral Plus Midi Dress $69

Sleeveless and services don’t have to be incompatible. With an appropriate neckline you can show off those shoulders with no issue. Case in point, this marvelous mauve midi from Lulus.

Windsor, Sweet Beauty A-Line Midi Dress $39

This puff sleeved perfection is lovely as is, but you could easily take to the next level by adding a belt (we recommend this season’s big trender – wide and woven).

Windsor, Bohemian Oasis Scoop Neck Midi Dress $37.90 and The Perfect Day Cardigan $23.97

Inject a little boho-chic into your services wardrobe. This midi dress is a perfectly appropriate length and we just love the cool teal color. For inside and during services, all you need is an equally appropriate accessory. In this case we found the cutest cropped cardi that will look amazing. Bonus – if your church tends to be on the chilly side (as most are) you’re arms and shoulders will definitely appreciate the added layer.
