Easter Sunday Style, With a Twist

Don't let Colorado's unpredictable weather ruin your Easter outfit. Here's how to rock one of the season's hottest trends: dresses with pants. 


It’s 48 hours until Easter and every store is advertising this or that frock to rock for your Sunday plans. But should you go for the laid-back jeans outfit that’s typically Colorado, or a dress that says “spring is here” (even if the weather doesn’t)?

This Easter, why not try both?


Pairing a dress with pants is a style that’s been embraced by fashion bloggers such as The Man Repeller, and showcased on the runways of several designers during pre-fall shows. This layered look mimics the transition from winter to spring and offers protection against Denver’s likely temperature changes. In other words, don’t worry about the wind getting control of your dress (or being cold in the case of a sporadic storm). The look is versatile—you can class it up with a cocktail dress and black skinnies like the picture above, or pair a flowy spring dress with ripped jeans for a more casual Easter egg hunt (pictured right).

Pink’s Straight from L.A. store managers Kristen Franta and Rachel L’Heureux shared a few styling tips to help you put a trendy twist on the classic Easter ensemble:

And if you’re still unsure how to make it work, allow your feet to do the talking: “We would recommend heels as your shoe,” L’Heureux says. “Jeans can feel bulky under dresses sometimes and heels bring out the femininity.”
