Easter is a time to bring out colours and try a new piece, to look your best during whatever activity you'll be doing on this holiday.

Easter is just around the corner. Although the idea of a bunny leaving eggs may be confusing, dressing up doesn’t have to be. Whether you’re going back home for the holiday or having dinner with your partner’s family for the first time, it can be daunting for you to decide what to wear. Both men and women are tasked with dressing appropriately for such events. The following are a few notes to keep in mind when shopping for your Easter outfit.

Know Where You’re Going

It’s best to have a general idea of the dress code of the place you will be spending your Easter weekend. For example, if you are attending a prayer service, it is best to dress a bit more formal (e.g., no jeans). When in doubt of the dress code, reach out to someone you know will be attending and ask them what they are wearing. If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with dress pants and a button up shirt or blouse.

Colours to Wear

Easter is known for its colours. When looking for a shirt or dress opt for its bright colours and patterns. Pastels are a staple for spring and there is no better time to pull out that light pink button up. Don’t be afraid to shake things up. If you’re not into pastels it’s hard to go wrong with a little black dress or a white button up shirt. Another great “go to” piece is a simple floral pattern.

Play Around With Accessories

Accessories can add to every outfit. Adding a chic hat can completely change a look for the better. Gentlemen, maybe this is the time to try out that new bow tie and maybe even some suspenders with dress pants. Ladies, Easter just might be the opportunity to wear a huge statement piece like a large necklace or broach.

Footwear

Again, make your judgement on what is considered appropriate before deciding to show up in flipflops. Guys, you may want to consider trying a boat shoe instead of dress shoes for a more casual, but preppy look. Ladies, flats are probably your most comfortable option especially if Easter egg hunting is involved. Whichever you decide to wear, just make sure that your shoes are not too beaten up. If you need to clean white shoes, Clorox wipes with some water and baking soda should help whiten them right up.

Don’t be Afraid to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Lastly, try something new. Whether that means wearing a jumpsuit or trying a pink tie for the first time, you might as well give it a go. As long as you feel confident, why not try something new? Guys, don’t be afraid to wear “feminine” colours. Ladies, maybe go for a wrap dress instead of a skater style. Overall, have fun experimenting with fashion, and how you can integrate your personal style with the holiday.
