What to Wear to an Easter Gathering
With Easter Sunday right around the corner, many families are planning to take the opportunity to gather together and enjoy a warm spring weekend. More than an excuse to hunt for colored eggs and eat marshmallow Peeps, Easter gives us a chance to celebrate with family and friends.
As we keep our fingers crossed for favorable weather and fire up our ovens, crockpots, and grills, there's one more looming question that begs to be answered: what should you wear? From the boardroom to the back yard it's important to be dressed properly wherever you go, so we'll be kind and offer you some tips and tricks to make sure that you're on target.
- Formality - Most Easter gatherings aren't black tie affairs, so showing up in a tuxedo would be overkill. Instead, pair nice casual pants with a short-sleeve button down shirt and boat shoes or moccasins. If the occasion is more casual, leave the shirt untucked; however, if you find that the guest list is a bit more "buttoned-up," opt for a tucked in long sleeve shirt.
- Color - It's time to put the pastels on display. Shades of light blue, yellow, purple, pink, and green radiate Easter and can be combined to create a whimsical ensemble. To make a fashion statement, add a splash of color to your bottom half and pair it with a patterned dress shirt. If you're more conservative, pair any color shirt with khaki pants.
- Jacket - Let Mother Nature aid you in making this decision. If the weather is warmer, there is no need to wear a jacket. Although you may look sharp, you'll quickly become uncomfortable.
- Accessories - Since most Easter gatherings tend to be less formal, vests and ties aren't necessary; however, these can be a great way to add flare to your ensemble. Add a bright floral bow tie or a sunny yellow pair of socks to playfully upgrade your style.
