Every year, Easter reminds us that spring has finally returned. Snow starts thawing, the tulips bloom, and you're eager to celebrate new beginnings with your closest friends and family. And that calls for a fresh Easter outfit so the kiddos can dress the part.
Easter's associations with bunnies and springtime make it one of the best holidays to put your child's cuteness in the spotlight. But whether you're heading to church this year or throwing a baby animal-themed backyard blowout, just like those hidden easter eggs, Easter outfit ideas may not be as apparent as you think!
Parents, grab your shopping baskets: with these 6 springtime outfit themes to play with, the Easter wardrobe hunt is about to begin.
Dress your children in dainty pastel colors for a classic springtime staple. Pastel colors offer a bright yet elegant look to reflect the season's joy—but just as dyeing Easter eggs is an art, so is creating a cohesive pastel hue palette.
For some egg-cellent color combinations, consider pairing:
Opting for pastels can also open the door to countless apparel options: you can perfect your pastels with rompers, button-up shirts, colorful swimsuits, or bodysuits for your precious bunny. Whatever Easter events line your calendar, you’ll feel confident that your kiddo is dressed appropriately for the occasion.
As the roses and daffodils start blooming, we hope your Easter inspiration follows suit. After all, nothing says springtime quite like a floral print.
Let your kiddos’ style blossom by opting for a cute Easter outfit decked out in flowers. Put your buttercup in a gorgeous flowery dress or romper to bring some sunshine to the occasion. For the finishing touch, top it off by crowning them with a sunflower-inspired protective sunhat.
Springtime is that lovely time of year when animals return from hibernation and join in on the fun.
If your child adores animals, Easter festivities are the perfect time to let them get wild. There are plenty of Easter-themed animals to pick from to adorn your child's clothing, such as:
Whether your child sleeps like a sheep or chirps like a bird, you can find a cute Easter outfit to match their favorite animal of choice. Pair their look with that cuddly stuffed animal hiding in their Easter basket for an extra hint of magic.
Whether you’re a green-thumbed family or just love admiring your local park spring back to life, Easter marks the beginning of the gardening season. Durable, comfortable baby clothes sizes are a must for outdoor play—and you count on a trusty pair of overalls to kick back and get the party started.
Overalls make an excellent Easter holiday article if you're planning some seasonal fun and games. This garment is perfect for:
Even on dress-up occasions, kids know how to get their hands dirty (and don't even mention the grass stains). Suited up in a pair of overalls with some lovely ruffles, the Easter holiday extravaganza can commence with both comfort and charm.
The weather is warmer, the grass is greener, and as spring heats up you’re bound to be invited to plenty of outdoor potlucks around the neighborhood. So why not take a little inspiration from your favorite picnic blanket?
Dress up your child's wardrobe with some fabulous plaid or gingham prints. The style works well for various occasions, extending well beyond Easter and into the summer months. Plus, plaid, gingham, and checkers can work as a way of adding visual texture to any outfit, or as stand-alone garments like:
Feel like coordinating outfits with your kiddos? Give each member of your family a little plaid piece in their outfit, from headbands to pocket squares. Plus, matching sibling outfits makes for some charming Easter photos, showing the world your family is a package deal.
Whether you start every Easter Sunday at church or just like to make a good impression at Easter brunch, you can't go wrong with some stylish formal wear.
But you don't need to go crazy with three-piece suits and ball gowns (though your little girl may insist on wearing her favorite princess dress). To make their holiday look unforgettable—without the need for a costume change—opt for these modern spins on their Easter best:
It’s those final fashion details that complete the vision for this year’s Easter festivities (as well as garner plenty of “oohs” and “ahs” from the grandparents). Plus, accessories are a thoughtful addition to any Easter gift basket—and the more kids feel like they can own their Easter looks, the likelier they are to keep those bunny ears on!
If you’re not sure where to start with Easter accessorizing, start brainstorming with these gorgeous finishing touches:
You may feel inclined to keep shirts tucked in, hair parted perfectly, or every petticoat perfectly flounced, but allowing kids some creativity with their outfits may just leave a positive impact. Some child psychologists speculate that children who dress themselves may have an easier time becoming self-reliant as adults, having more confidence to express themselves freely.
And who knows? Your little chick may even be styling your Easter outfit one day.
From dressing to impress in plaids to nurturing the seeds of a fashionista in florals, there’s only one guideline for choosing the perfect Easter outfit: remembering how magical this time of year can feel when seen through the eyes of a child.
