The off the shoulder neckline is a fresh modern take on classic lace, while the sheer sleeves and scalloped hemline add feminine details. We love that an elegant mini dress like this can be dressed up or down depending on your plans, from Easter Sunday to weddings and events, or even simply as a casual sundress with sandals and a floppy hat. The baby blue color is perfect for spring and summertime outings and is stylish and feminine without feeling overdone.

It’s also the time of year pretty prints and florals start to take over, and we can’t wait to start wearing some of these floral beauties. For a more casual Easter day approach, wear your favorite jeans with a cute floral top in pretty spring hues, like this halter top by BB Dakota. The coral color is perfect for warm spring days, and a white and blue flowery print embodies springtime romance and mimics the budding flowers blooming in nature this time of year.

Another top that we love for an Easter outfit is this gorgeous white lace sleeve blouse from Dora Landa that exudes romance and class. With the crossover drape front this top is perfect for dressy occasions like date night and Easter holiday dinner. Sheer lace bell sleeves incorporate recent trends with a touch of bohemian romance that makes this top stand out from other white blouses.

The lacey details of this top are timeless and ladylike while the bell sleeve adds a boho touch that is very of the moment keeping your look up to date with the latest trends.
To really kick things into true Spring fashion territory, it’s time to start bringing out the maxi dresses. Something about the weightless flowy length of a maxi just screams for warm weather, and this floral Yumi Kim beauty is the perfect elegant choice to transition into warmer days in a signature floral print dress. A floral silk maxi is a great choice for Easter weekend, since it is dressy and romantic with fresh spring flowers in pretty shades. Add a cropped jacket if the weather requires, and simple heels to round out the look which can take you from day to night. Choosing a navy dress with a pastel floral print in baby pinks and blues blends wintery darks with shamelessly bubble gum pink spring pastels. This dress will also take you into any summer event such as that wedding on the North Fork you are attending with it’s sophisticated wrap around look and beautiful silk fabric which makes it a favorite Yumi Kim style each year.
