Easter calls for fashion that can take you from church to brunch with your grandmother to pictures in the park with your three-year-old nephew. Throw thoughts of frumpy out the window and think outside the box for a dress you’ll want in your closet long after next weekend. Lace is all over the place right now, and it’s stylish, so that helps. Wispy party prints abound, and wedding guest dresses can do double duty for church. You’ll want to wear these throughout the spring and summer. Dress these up or down by switching heels for flats or sandals, trade delicate jewelry for statement pieces. You’ll have an Easter outfit that will carry you through the warm weather season.
This ASOS Lace Crop Top Midi comes in colors navy and nude as well, but I think the baby blue is perfect to greet spring and complement the woven lace and scalloped edges. The crop top overlay and mesh insert are right on trend. Add a lace up heeled sandal and you are good to go. The price is $128.
A timeless and classic A-line dress in shell pink with fluid structure catches light with a subtle sheen and drapes beautifully. The J. Crew Julia photographs beautifully for those family pictures at the museum. Dress it up a bit and you’ve got a super cocktail dress. Dress it down and you’ll go to that beach wedding in style and comfort. The cost is $179.99.
The Vince Camuto Floral Chiffon brightens spring with a pink multi print of oversized springtime blooms that is both delicate and vibrant. The jewel neck sleeveless shift in a simple, classically elegant silhouette is $148.00 at Nordstrom.
Jill calls the color “Shrimp Painted Garden” and I call it cute as all get-out. This cool linen, boat-neck sleeveless floral dress with front princess seams is another great beach wedding candidate. Mother-of-pearl buttons above the hemline that can be opened to create vents. The price is $99.
The flattering A-line silhouette in the Tory Burch Kaley dress is designed with layered panels that give the effect of matching top and skirt. The lightweight pima cotton offers an easy, free-flowing drape in a print that echoes a pencil drawing of carnation leaves. The price is $250.
The Camellia Dropwaist Dress by Maeve at Anthropologie is simple but stunning with a ruffled high-low hem and pullover styling. The color is a light pink beige and the drop waist, loose fit and the hip and flare of ruffles flatters all figures. Cost is $148.
