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

Depending on where you are, you may not be able to dine in a restaurant, or perhaps you are restricted about meeting with family and friends.

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, or you want to dress up or dress down at home.

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.

Oxana (above) looks comfy and stylish. Her houndstooth jacket adds warmth and a touch of formality to her jeans.

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, or at least a staycation. If you’re lucky enough to be able to head for a little break, putting together a little capsule wardrobe will ensure all of your clothes go with each other while you’re away.

If you can’t go anywhere at the moment, it could still be a great opportunity to put together a capsule for the upcoming spring season.

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 or opt for a striking graphic print.

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.

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.

Check out this similar top, moto jacket, jeans, sandals and bag.

I’ve included a 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 waterproof jacket (below). Statement trench coats are also particularly on trend.
