“And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.” 1 Cor. 6:14
While Easter is about the resurrection of Jesus and celebrating the arise of new life, first world culture still places significance on Easter appeal. Whether it be from the brunch too a Sunday service there is an unspoken dress code for an Easter outfit.
The first unspoken word is to wear a softer color. Particularly, a pastel color works wonders. The popular color of the spring season is yellow. However, I wore a light pastel pink dress. I also saw multiples of lavender and baby blues throughout the day.
In the same fashion, a spunky print is also recommend. Polka dots and stripes were common due to the 2018 trend. Yet, the season classic and staple is to wear a floral pattern. Simple floral patterns that are stunning are daisy and roses. Also stitched outlines of flowers add an elegant touch. In my dress I had embroidered flowers and butterflies adorning the dress.
Likewise, length actually matters. On Easters mini skirts and bodycon dresses should be avoided. A general guideline is to follow a business casual protocol, especially if you are going to be in attendance for a church service. A mid-thigh for skirts and dress length is a general standard for the holiday event. For those that are petite like me, an often struggle with this unspoken rule, can wear a shorter trim line skirt with mesh extending the length protocol. This is what I did with my dresses skirt line. The actual dress was shorter, yet the mesh was longer.
Notably, the last unspoken rule is shoes. While, I’m a fan of funky and edgy shoes that often make my outfit pop, I choose to follow the monday wardrobe capsule. A plain pair of heels that didn’t exceed 3 inches. I went with a pair of rounded nude heels. Similarly, white, grey, navy, or black heels would work as well.
