It is a bit mind boggling that we are already half way through March and Easter is just a few weeks away. Every Easter my family usually goes to the eleven o’clock church service, and then gets brunch right after, and of course eat a ridiculous amount of candy. Since Easter does not have a consistent date that it falls on each year, it can be a bit of a challenge to dress for depending on the weather. Luckily, Easter falls on April 16 this year, so cold weather shouldn’t be an issue and sundresses and seersucker can make their Easter debut. Peter Minkoff has been so kind to share a few tips on how to dress for Easter Brunch in this guest post!
In case you didn’t know, we’ll be celebrating Easter in just a month from now, and if you still haven’t started figuring out your perfect outfit, it’s time you did! Dressing up for an Easter brunch is not as tricky as you may think, and if you want to do it like a boss, stay with us. Here are some useful tips and tricks on how to achieve that.
Stunning colors and patterns appropriate for the big holiday
Easter is all about spending quality time with your family; however, it’s also a perfect occasion to show off your skills when it comes to fashion. Opting for some stunning colors and patterns suitable for an Easter brunch is essential – you don’t want to look tacky or inappropriate in front of your relatives, do you? Pastels are always a good idea, but don’t get too excited about them – there’s a chance that these won’t flatter your skin tone. If pastel yellow makes you look washed out, opt for canary yellow and solve the problem in no time! Besides that, you can always pair pastels with darker shades, since these provide the most amazing contrast. When talking about prints, floral is a great option. Just make sure not to wear anything that has bunnies or Easter eggs on it – everyone knows it’s Easter, so that’s completely unnecessary!
Pick stylish pieces that complement your figure
Opting for trendy pieces that complement your figure in the best possible way is an absolute imperative; so, try to find such garments as soon as possible. Classic cut dresses are a great basis for your Easter brunch outfit ‒ knee length ladies dresses are always a good idea, as well as maxi dresses that inevitably add a touch of sophistication to any look. A nice floral jacket or an oversized cardigan is exactly what you need for a chilly day; so, make sure you have it in your wardrobe. On the other hand, if girly style is not your cup of tea, you can go for a quality button-up matched with a pair of dark-wash jeans. This combo, too, can accentuate your figure as much as a flattering dress; so, don’t be afraid to think out of the box. Just bear in mind that the key to success lies in picking what suits your personal style, and you’ll be just fine!
Don’t forget to accessorize
Accessorizing is the last step in dressing up for an upcoming Easter brunch, and you should definitely do it according to the ‘less is more’ rule. Even though incorporating statement jewelry such as huge rings, long crystal earrings, and shiny necklaces with matching bracelets is what can help you stand out from the crowd, we can all agree that these probably aren’t the best possible picks. Instead of going hard with accessories, try to tone down your look and feature some simpler designs, such as long necklaces with remarkable pendants or small yet very effective earrings. A lovely scarf will make every combo even more stylish – just make sure to match it properly with the rest of your outfit. Of course, you can always mix two different prints, but don’t force it if the combo doesn’t look good. Remember – simplicity is the key.
With our tips in mind, we believe that getting ready for an upcoming Easter brunch is nothing but a piece of cake. All you have to do is to stay true to yourself and your personal style – once that’s done, you’ll be able to come up with a flawless outfit appropriate for spending some quality time with your family and friends.
