Did you know that Americans spend more on Easter fashion than they do on candy? More than twice as much, in fact! The only thing that eats up more of our Easter budget than clothing is food—and not by much. This Easter, the average American will spend $55.15 on food and $54.98 on clothing, for a difference of a mere couple of dimes. By comparison, we’ll spend just $24.05 on all those sweet treats in our Easter baskets.
Whether you’ll keep it simple or go totally glam with Easter fashion this year, you’ll want to look your very best and, as always, flatter that figure you work so hard for. Freshen up your Easter outfit with these fashion-forward ideas based on the latest spring fashion trends for women and men.
Easter Fashion for Women
These ideas straight from the spring fashion runways of New York, London, and Milan will add some pizzazz to your Easter look:
Show off your patriotic spirit with a focus on the stars and stripes featuring the good ol’ red, white, and blue. Keep it classy by pairing prints with a strategic solid.
From casual to dressy, the windbreaker returns this spring in prints and solids, matte and shiny fabrics, and lengths from upper thigh to mid-calf. Find one to complement your new Easter dress.
Mix it up by pairing bold patterns in unexpected ways, perhaps with a springy floral dress and an opposites-attract anorak in black-and-white polka dots, or “match” striped pants with a wild geometric print top in a complementary color palette.
Go for all-in bright, cheerful, bordering-on-fluorescent colors reminiscent of Easter egg dye in shades of hot pink, lemon yellow, and tangerine.
Say no to being a wallflower and say yes to Flapper-esque playful skirts, tops, and dresses decorated with dangling fringe that’s either long and flowy or short and flirty.
You’ll shimmer at that Easter brunch in this fluid fabric that really highlights your silhouette. Step up your game with a slightly slinky satin dress or tone it down just a bit in shiny satin separates.
Strategically show off your best-toned body parts with sheer, flowy fabrics in solid colors.
Channel your inner prima ballerina with full-on tutus or tulle-trimmed sleeves, skirts, and dresses. What a great chance to twin with your daughter or granddaughter in one of her favorite girly fabrics.
Easter Accessories for Women
After you’ve chosen your pretty Easter fashion dress or suit, remember to accessorize! Check out these tips to turn up the trendiness on your Easter outfit:
Keep it casual with a low messy bun, beachy waves, or loose curls.
Choose a bold statement necklace, multi-strand costume pearls, or bangles.
Try light smoky eyes and a soft lip color.
Kick up your heels in a pair that is a spot-on match for your top or slip on some neutral-tone stilettos, attention-getting pumps with bling, fun wedges, or fiercely fabulous gladiator sandals.

Easter Fashion for Men
Think out of the basket with these Easter fashion ideas that will put a little more spring in your Easter-day step:
For those who are uber confident in fashion choices, pair bright baby blue pants with a matching blazer and a low-key white shirt.
Update a classic look by pairing crisp white slacks with a semi-formal shirt in navy, maroon, or green, and top it off with a gray blazer.
Make a statement in a bright, bold, funky geometric tee loaded with color and pattern and selected to draw attention to your bis and tris. Dress it up with a blazer and bright pants. Dress it down with a simple pair of jeans.
Show off in colored pants that attract attention. Choose cuffed or cropped in bright sherbet-like hues, including lemon, lime, and raspberry.
Easter-basket fresh pastel tops like lavender, aqua, and bright pink will pop whether you choose solids, prints, or a peppy, preppy gingham.
A gentle pink—more ballet than bright—is just the right hot color for Easter cool.
Need an excuse for a new pair of shoes? Choose fun, bright-colored loafers or sneakers, white low-tops, perforated Oxfords, or white-tassel loafers to accessorize your Easter look this year. And opt to go sans socks, especially if you’re wearing cropped pants.
