Easter often heralds the start of spring. So, it’s the perfect time to embrace cheerful colors and lighter layers. These Easter outfits will work, no matter what you have planned for the upcoming holiday weekend.

In this article, you will find both casual and dressier Easter outfits, so you should find inspiration whether you are taking part in an Easter egg hunt with your family, you’re heading for a quick weekend break, or you’re going for brunch with loved ones and friends.

I’d love to hear about your Easter plans and what you will be wearing. You can let me know in the comments at the bottom of the article.

How to choose Easter outfits to suit the occasion

Of course, there are so many different ways you could be spending the Easter holiday. Here are just a few things you might want to think about when putting together your outfits:

Indoors, outdoors or both?

Often Easter outfits need to do double duty. You might, for example, be outside hunting for Easter eggs before heading in for a more formal brunch. So, you need to make sure you are both comfortable AND stylish, and that your outfit features layers to deal with different temperatures.

Adding some color

Most of you will be heading into spring. So, it’s the ideal time to think about choosing some sunny colors or some pretty pastels as part of your Easter outfit.

Are you going on a short break?

As it’s a long weekend, it could provide the opportunity to take a short vacation. If you’re lucky enough to be heading for a little break, putting together a little capsule wardrobe will ensure all of your clothes go with each other while you’re away.

Keep reading and you’ll see I’ve put together a capsule wardrobe with tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes and accessories for Easter.

A dress could be perfect for church or a family occasion

If you have a more formal event to attend, a dress could be perfect. Choose one in a paler shade to reflect the spring season.

Below, you will find a capsule wardrobe for Easter, which you can either use for inspiration if you are going on vacation. Or, you can simply choose your favorite outfit to suit the occasion.

I always associate Easter with the time that daffodils bloom, so I’ve been inspired by their sunny yellow shade, along with some monochrome for my Easter capsule.

Jackets and coats for Easter

It’s usually not warm enough at Easter to go without a jacket.

If you have coats and jackets in darker shades, you can team them with florals, prints or paler colors to give your outfit a more spring-like feel.

Sally (above) opts for an on-trend plaid jacket and matches with her soft blue shoes and sweater.

I’ve included a black moto (below) as I thought many of you might already have one, along with a blazer you can wear to add a touch of elegance to your outfits.

Plus, as March and April are often known for rain, I couldn’t resist the bee-detail waterproof jacket (below).
