Buttercup yellows, cotton-candy pinks, robin-egg blues—Easter egg-hued pastels are synonymous with springtime. The subtle and feminine palette is perfect for a girl’s brunch, family gathering or whatever warm weather activities take shape this season. Here are a few frocks you’ll find around the District to dress up your spring Sundays.
Poised in Turquoise
If it’s robin-egg blue that first comes to mind when you think of Easter shades, then look to Alice + Olivia for its Darva gathered mock wrap high-low dress. The shade is as rich as those foil-covered chocolates you used to find in your Easter basket when you were a little kid and will bring you as much joy.
There’s something so serenely sweet about a soft, buttery yellow color. Channel that same saccharine feeling with this Theory long fit-and-flare dress. The hue is quintessential spring, and pairs well with other pale shades making this frock a wise pick for pastel lovers.
A Little Lilac
Shades of purple—both light and dark, have made their way around spring trend lists. Donning an airy lilac frock for Easter celebrations isn’t just on point, it’s also incredibly in season. This sleeveless, tiered jersey handkerchief dress from Tom Ford available in the faintest hue of lilac can easily go from a daytime family brunch to evening cocktails with friends.
Sky Blue Sky
Is there anything more spring than a bright blue sky? Channel that clear sky look with this Gucci sleeveless short tweed dress, complete with sun-kissed gold buttons and white trim. Wear it to the Easter egg hunt with your favorite pair of spring sandals or work it during the week with heels for your next power meeting.
A pale pink dress is considered a springtime basic. And the Mary dress from Reformation, with its midi length, fit and flare cut and scoop neckline is as classic as it is versatile. This dress has range and can be the perfect dressed-up party frock layered with jewelry, a jacket or lace-up sandals or paired with flats and simple gold hoops for a casual Sunday stroll around the neighborhood.
Just as every epic Easter egg hunt has its golden egg, be the standout at your next Spring soiree with this rich gold-toned dress by Saint Laurent. Eliciting the sun’s brilliant rays, this smocked drop-waist, V-neck dress shines as an option for those who like to be noticed.
