Easter Dresses Aren’t Just for Little Girls

There’s nothing sweeter than seeing little girls dressed up in their fancy Easter dresses and hats. But who says the tradition of a new Easter dress has to be reserved for kids?  There’s no better way to kick off spring than with a colorful new dress in the bright colors Easter dresses for women 2015of the season.

How can you make this tradition more grown up and current?

Choose a dress that says spring. Think bright floral prints, pastels, pinks, yellows, greens, whites, and lavenders. Obvious choices for Easter would be a pretty sundress, but if the weather isn’t quite warm enough to go sleeveless, you can throw on a pretty cardigan or wrap, or splurge and invest in a spring coat. Spring coats can be found in lighter canvas or cotton fabrics in bright colors like hot pink, yellow, mint green or even in a pretty floral print.

Good choices for styles for Easter dresses include knee-length, A-line sleeveless dresses or classic sheath dresses. Maxi-dresses are still hot this season, but for the holiday, choose one in a lighter spring color or pattern. If you want to show off your figure, fitted dresses are also trendy right now.

Easter dresses embrace femininity with girly, floral prints or bright solids in lace, cotton, or silk. Ruffle and lace accents are current right now. Or if you prefer more classic designs, there are a plethora of structured dresses available for spring in solids like navy blue or black with white piping. Sleeveless styles work best for Easter, but if you prefer a sleeve, be careful when choosing a short sleeve dress as cap sleeves or sleeves that hit too high on the arm can be unflattering to even the slimmest arms.

Dresses not for you? You can still put together a pretty Easter outfit with a pair of wide-leg pants in linen, silk, or rayon paired with a bright top or sweater.

Easter also marks the day that most ladies break out their sandals after months of being in storage for winter. Wedges and gladiator-style sandals are still popular choices this season, but you can never go wrong with a flat sandal embellished with gold or silver accents.

If you are longing for that “Easter bonnet” you used to receive every year as a child, be bold and wear a hat with your Easter dress. Available in a variety of styles and colors that range from subtle pastels to bright, vibrant tones, Easter hats for women are an elegant and sophisticated way to complete any fashion ensemble. Choose a wide-brimmed hat and tie a pretty scarf around it to finish off the look.

Embrace your inner child and get decked out this Easter. Happy spring!
