Now is the time to move past those darker jewel tones and gravitate towards pretty pastels, and fortunately for us, that’s what Spring 2022 is all about. With the “cool purple-blue” Very Peri named Pantone’s Color of the Year, there has never been a better time to a head-to-toe monochromatic moment. Or, if that is not your forte why not slowly work pastels into your ensemble? A pastel headband or floral frock will look just as stylish; there is no wrong way to go here, and we’re here to prove just that.
Whether you’re heading out to a large family get-together or have a more intimate celebration planned, we’ve got it covered. We’ve found seven Easter outfit ideas that are high on style and low on effort.
1. Pair Nicole English Williams x Bar lll’s inclusive set with Lele Sadough’s best-selling headband
Shopping for plus-size pieces shouldn’t be challenging and fortunately, the brand-new Nicole Williams English’s x Bar lll collection at Macy’s is looking to bulldoze over any of those obstacles. Streamline styling with this crop top and elastic satin skirt. Available in women’s extended sizes 0X-4X, both pieces are designed in the same shimmery satin blue material that exudes elegance.
Level up the look by stepping into these Markley high heel sandals from Lulu’s. Available in women’s shoe sizes 5.5 to10, the 4.25-inch triangular block heel adds effortless style, while the square toe and matching vamp strap keep your feet locked in safe and sound.
Boost your look with this best-selling knotted headband from fan-favorite accessory brand Lele Sadoughi. The denim dot print will impeccably match both the shoes and the two-piece set, while the one-inch comfort band ensures it won’t hurt your ears when worn for long periods.
Complete your ensemble by adding a pop of color with the help of these Metal Poppy Flower dangle earrings. Available in seven colors, the handpainted earrings are both solid and durable, receiving a near-perfect rating by Amazon reviewers. According to one happy shopper, she loved them so much she “ordered four more pairs,” while another reviewer said, “they’re [her] go-everywhere earrings.”
2. Invest in a timeless dress by Sachin & Babi and pair it with Vince Camuto’s highly wearable heels
Instead of investing in an Easter outfit idea you’ll wear once, support an ensemble you’ll reach for on repeat. Enter: Sachin & Babi’s Audra Dress. Available in women’s sizes 2-14, the Kelly green shade is the perfect pop of color for the spring season, while the timeless silhouette flatters every body type. Understated and sophisticated, the tea-length hemline is long enough without being too long, providing the right amount of coverage. Plus, the box pleating and adorned jewels (on both straps) insert the right amount of glitz and glam. It’s not hard to understand why reviewers deem this dress “absolutely gorgeous (In fact, we’re already thinking how we’d make the best wedding guest dress!)
Keeping wearability in mind, opt for a shoe like Vince Camuto Saprenda 2 Sandals that can be worn long after the Easter festivities conclude. Available in women’s shoe sizes 5-12 this heel features a 3.25-inch heel, three different colors, a square-toe bed and an adjustable strap that reviewers love. One shopper said she loved how “cute and comfortable” the heels were and how they can be “dressed up or dressed down and worn with more than one look.” We love!
Unsure about the weather? Turn to this double-breasted trench coat that can withstand whatever Mother Nature throws your way. Available in women’s sizes XS-XXL, this coat is ready to wear in 10 shades, and we are particularly smitten with the eggshell blue. Although thanks to its waterproof material, every shade is perfect for year-round wear, and nearly 4,000 Amazon reviewers agree. One reviewer said she loved how it “fit her curvier body to perfection,” while another shopper adds that it’s a “springtime staple.”
Pull your look together with the help of Bauble Bar’s Meagan earrings. They’re described as a “modern upgrade” to traditional pearl drops, featuring handset stones in various shades of blue throughout.
3. Stay effortless with Something Navy’s oversized button-up shirt
Are you looking for not just an Easter outfit idea but a new go-to piece for the entire season? Look no further than Something Navy’s classic button-down shirt. Available in women’s sizes XXS-XL, this shirt has an oversized fit and an easy-to-wear button-down front. Designed in yellow, purple, blue and classic white, this crisp shirt will work with anything from trousers to skirts, but we love it best with a wide-leg pair of denim.
DL1961’s Hepburn wide leg high rise vintage denim are foolproof. Available in women’s sizes 23-34, the vintage high-rise denim is fitted at the waist and seat, tapering outward from the thigh. Deemed one of the brand’s best-selling pairs, they’ve also earned my stamp of approval. On a recent trip to Paris, I brought a different pair of denim for each day but found myself stepping into these pants day in and day out. Never before have I found denim that could transition from day to night on a whim, and that fit my petite frame to perfection. Typically, if the waist fits like a glove, the length is way too long (or vice versa), but that was anything but the case here. Both the waist and length were perfection, a win-win!
Draw inspiration from Pantone’s Color of the Year and reach for Steve Madden’s Kenley Heels in lavender. Available in women’s shoe sizes 6-11, the braided straps, slender 4.5-inch heels, and five other shades are a fan-favorite. So many shoppers can’t get over how “cute and comfortable” these heels are and say they wear them “on repeat.”
Take this casual look up a notch by strategically selecting standout jewelry. Bauble Bar’s Peony Necklace works fantastic as a focal point, as the traditional chain looks far more expensive than it is.
If you’re like me and love mixing metals, the two-toned Aiko Ring will be your new best friend. Available in ring sizes 5-10, the criss-cross design adds texture to your digits and looks smashing when paired with the Millie 18K gold ring. These stacking rings emphasize subtle twist detailing finished with a thick layer of 18k gold plating.

I love how Candace’s clothing line caters to us short women.” Another shopper similarly sings its praises, only this time, adding in that “the sweatpants were so soft she didn’t want to take them off.” We love this, but what we love even more is how easy it is to pull this look together and make it holiday-approved.
Elevate your ensemble by stepping into these VEJA sneakers. and taking a play out of Meghan Markle’s style handbook.
