When you think of Easter outfits, one of the first images that comes to anyone’s mind is the floral print dress – knee-length, chic-looking, and one that will be “approved” by the family. It’s trendy, stylish, and safe – you can’t wrong with it. This Easter, however, why don’t you surprise your family or friends’ circle by trying something different? In this blog post, we will introduce you to the different styles that you could try to make yourself stand out.
Now, first things first. Before you begin to think we have forsaken floral prints altogether, then no. Floral print is still on top of outfits to wear for Easter. (Who are we to discard that?) It is classy and if you are one of the persons who never wore this print for Easter, then this is your year. If you have, then stay away from this print and read on!
We don’t think we have to sell polka dot print to you. It’s everywhere this year – on runways, off runways, streets – that we would be surprised if you haven’t caught the polka dot fever yet. (Still didn’t hear about the polka dot trend? Read our previous blog here: Go dotty with polka dots.) While earlier, some fashionistas ascribed the print with quirkiness, it is no longer the case. Over the years, polka dots got associated with elegance, grace and style. Now, if these are not the perfect attributions for an Easter outfit, then what is?
Checks won’t be the first pattern that comes to your mind when you think of Easter. But that probably makes it the No. 1 reason to make it your Easter choice this year. It is an easy replacement if you do not want solids but wants a subtle print, and, if paired with the right hues, makes it the perfect spring outfit. Our advice: don’t go for black and white. Instead, opt for a pop of color or you could choose a pastel shade to give your attire more of an Easter feel.
You have to be bold enough to pick this print! An outfit full of trees, leaves, birds, flowers, fruits, abstract and bold patterns does not exactly say “Easter”. However, if you pair it with a solid neutral shade, you will be able to tone down the tropical print effect and will have yourself a perfect Easter attire. (And you will definitely stand out!) Our suggestion: Opt for a tropical print skirt and match it with a neutral shade blouse or tank top.
Bonus tip: Go for that orange dress
Pantone had announced Classic Blue as its 2020 color of the year. However, the hue that was most seen on the SS ‘20 runways and streets was tangerine. Several designers and brands went for the orangey shade to feature their pieces. The color symbolizes vacation, freedom, escape, anything that represents happiness. If you want to stay away from the pastel/light shades this Easter and go for a bright hue, this is the ideal choice. Go for that orange/tangerine dress and brighten up the Easter brunch!
