Easter is right around the corner and I’m so excited about it. We’ve gotten really involved with our church in the last couple of years, and it makes me SO happy to know we’ll be celebrating Easter with our church family. If you’re local to Winston-Salem, you’re welcome to attend our Easter services! They have great childcare and multiple service times that weekend.
I love to dress up on Easter Sunday. I dress up most Sundays for church actually. But I get especially excited to buy a new dress for Easter since it’s a tradition I had every year growing up in the Mormon church. I know so many of you do the same, so I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of dresses to make your shopping a little easier.
When I looked at my analytics, I saw that the majority of you are making purchases that are in the $50-$150 range when it comes to clothing. So for this round-up, I’m keeping my finds to dresses under $100 (but I couldn’t help myself with a bonus section of pricier picks at the bottom). I hope this post helps you find something special to wear this Easter!
Let’s jump right in!
This mini dress is so beautiful and simple. I love the square neck and puff sleeves! This dress is $76 and would be perfect, assuming you aren’t super tall (this dress may be too short in that case). I own a few things from Petal and Pup and the quality is great! I’d likely wear a pair of flat sandals with this dress.
If a mini dress is too short (sometimes I know I’m going to want more length so that I can wrangle Thomas), this midi dress may be right up your ally. The smocked bodice makes it super comfortable, and the puff sleeves are a fun feminine touch. I love that you can dress it up or down with shoes and jewelry, and you’re sure to get more use out of it throughout the spring and summer. It’s also just under $80. For an even more affordable option, this dress from Amazon is a super similar style. When I wear midi dresses, I usually opt for heels so that my legs are elongated.
Another great Easter dress find from Petal and Pup (also a midi!). The Marlee dress has a pretty ruffle bodice, eyelet material (VERY Easter), and functional pockets! The reviews say this runs a little bit small.
Can you tell I’m a little bit fixated on Petal and Pup right now? Ha! I can’t get over how good their styles are, and for the price! This pink and white dress is perfect for Easter and the rest of the spring and summer too. I love the larger ruffle shoulders and the smocked bodice. If you’re a nursing mama, this style is so nice since you can easily pull the shoulder straps down. For a maxi dress like this, I’d probably stick to flat sandals.
I got this $50 dress from Amazon last spring and absolutely loved it! I loved how comfortable and easy it was to wear, while feeling very pulled together. In fact, I used to think maxi dresses were more work, but now I think they’re easiest to wear with a toddler, since there’s no holding your dress down when you have to bend over. I typically wear this dress with flat sandals.
Yet another great Amazon maxi dress find. This dress would be great for Easter festivities! I love the blue and white combo, but it’s hard to choose between all of the great color options. You can’t beat the price point either!
At first glance, this linen sundress feels somewhat casual, and didn’t strike me as an Easter dress option. But the more I thought about it, I realized it could so easily be dressed up with jewelry and heeled sandals! I love it so much that I bought it in two colors! Not only will it work for Easter festivities, but you’ll wear it all summer long.
This eyelet mini dress has great reviews on Amazon, and would be a perfect Easter Sunday dress. I love the ruffle sleeves, the slight v-neck, and the simple shape. You could easily wear any style sandal with this dress.
I’ve been scrolling through Nordstrom Rack’s online section more frequently these days, and this midi dress caught my eye. I’m always drawn to a puff sleeve, and the green color stopped me in my tracks. It’s totally church appropriate, and I know I’d wear it many more times throughout the warmer months. I’d wear heeled sandals with this dress, since midi length dresses can make you look shorter than you are. We gotta elongate those legs!
I had to add another Nordstrom Rack find for good measure. And I know I’ve already linked a handful of midi/maxi dresses with this same shape, but this color/pattern combo is really special. I love the dainty print and the soft colors. This would be ideal for Easter Sunday!
Can we get a round of applause for Walmart’s fashion???? This dress looks SO beautiful! I love the shape of the long sleeves and the large scoop-neck. And pockets? Too good. Especially for $26! The light blue color is the perfect robins egg blue for Easter, and would look great paired with some heeled sandals.
If you’re willing to splurge, I have a few favorites to share. These are not under $100, but I figured I’d include them anyway — why not ;). I’ll likely be wearing one of these this year.
I ended up buying this purple dress while I was in Charleston with my brother and sister-in-law. Never mind I only had 5 minutes to shop and still managed to rack up quite the shopping bill. I’m so glad I purchased this dress, though. I don’t have anything like it! The sleeves have a fun ballooning effect, and the neckline is deep but not low-cut. The length is to my knees, which I figured I’d end up hemming, but decided not to. I’ve loved the longer hem!
I’ve paired this dress with my favorite see-through heels (a great basic to have in your closet) from Amazon.
I don’t know if there’s ever been a more “Easter” dress than this one from J.Crew! It’s just perfect. I love the high neck collar, the sheer sleeves, the eyelet fabric, and the mini length. Just so good! It’s currently on sale, so shop quickly!
I got a very similar dress to this last year, and I’ve always thought it would be a great Easter dress. While the material and pattern I own isn’t available anymore, I really love the collared look of this version. I LOVE a sleeveless dress like this. It has such a polished look (always what I’m going for).
Here’s what mine looks like:
Abercrombie’s new arrivals are SO good this spring, and this midi dress stood out to me especially. I love the ruched bodice and the flutter sleeves. And if you’ve looked through the dresses above, you already know I love this length ;).
That’s all I’ve got for today! Do you have a favorite dress you’re planning to wear for Easter this year?
