The Easter dresses of our childhoods were often completed with tulle that itched and white tights that rested uncomfortably somewhere around our knees, with bunching around the ankle– just to make them that much more flattering. Somewhere around high school we rebelled and wore dresses that were more appropriate for a house party, paired with chunky Steve Madden wedges— our moms were not pleased. Now that we’ve grown up a bit, we’ll skip the bonnet and opt for some family brunch-worthy frocks.
Below, find a selection of the best dresses in all shapes and sizes. Whether ruffled, maxi, asymmetrical, plaid, floral, or anything in between, these little numbers make for an utterly styling Easter Sunday and will remain wearable all spring long.
