What to Wear for Easter, Passover and Other Springtime Special Occasions

Whether you're spending this week hunting for Easter eggs or the Passover afikomen, snacking on Cadbury Creme Eggs or coconut macaroons, you're going to need some stellar outfit options for all that family time ahead. Relatively conservative silhouettes and food-baby-accomodating cuts are important, sure—but so is an overall festive feel and an attention to spring hues. Click through for four outfit options that'll fit right in (and still help you stand out!) at this week's seders, Sunday supper or wherever that next family shindig might take you.

Family get-togethers aren't exactly the time to flash lots of leg. Forgo your girls' night out platforms and thigh-baring minis in favor of demure kitten heels and a sleek pencil skirt. Just make sure the one you choose isn't too constricting to sit (and, more importantly, eat) in. Yay for strategically-placed vents!

Whether you're planning to go H.A.M. on that Easter ham or treating yourself to second helpings of charoset, a non-constricting dress is key. Trapeze silhouettes don't do a girl's physique any favors, but why not try a dropped-waist version? So very Gatsby. Add a clutch just big enough for your essentials (or the afikomen) and you're set.

If you're taking on any sort of hostessing duties this season, flats are a foot-friendly must. Pair yours with a festive pair of cropped pants and a silky button-up for an eye-catching ensemble. When it's time for that Easter egg hunt, nothing beats a cross-body bag for hands-free focus.

You can't go wrong with a classic spring blazer at a family dinner—especially when you layer it over a top in a bold print. Bonus points if the top in question references one of Passover's 10 plagues.
