Good news for pastel lovers… Spring has sprung and Easter is firmly on the horizon.

With far less pressure than its Yule-tide cousin, Easter weekend is a time for family gatherings, egg hunts, and of course... a new excuse to wear festive attire. 

What is the best colour to wear on Easter?

Traditionally, Easter embraces soft pastels and light, airy fabrics. Think breezy dresses in lavender, mint green and sunshine yellow.

Do we wear special clothes on Easter?

Although there is no theological necessity to dress up, the significance of the holiday is marked by donning our “Sunday best,” that means sprucing up in smart floral dresses and elegant pastels.

What do you wear when it's cold on Easter?

Easter is earlier than ever this year, so we suggest opting for a two piece pastel suit or warm knits in spring-approved colours. Yellow is set to be the star of spring 2024. 

What to wear at Easter?

Floral prints and springtime patterns add a touch of whimsy to the occasion. There are also plenty of ways to accessorise with a nod to the occasion, think bunny charms and touches of gingham.

Whether you're attending an Easter church service, hosting a delightful brunch, or venturing out for springtime fun, we’ve put together a selection of outfits that easily reflect the joy of the season….

The Casual Egg Hunter Option
