Want to impress the bunny this Easter?
Lands’ End offers tips for the entire family to stay both fashionable and practical this spring.
Children When it comes to choosing Easter outfits for kids, select clothing that can be dressed up or dressed down, says Michele Casper, senior director of public relations for Lands’ End. “This gives parents an added value knowing the pieces will be cycled through the wardrobe and worn more than once or twice,” she says. Trends this year include color blocking — or the use of bold opposites on the color wheel — dip dye and colorful prints and patterns, she says.
Boys For special occasions like Easter, make sure to have the basics for boys: suits and jackets, chinos in a variety of colors, polos and woven shirts, Casper says. “Spring is synonymous with seersucker suits,” she says. “It’s a great Easter option for boys, either paired as a suit or worn separately with sweaters and polos or jeans, chinos and navy pants.” Don’t forgo the polo, she says, as it’s the ultimate anchor piece. It can be worn numerous ways for numerous occasions. “This season, we’ve updated the classic polo in our kids collection by offering fresh colors as well as a dip dye and Oxford cloth stripe polos,” she says.
Girls Skirts and dresses continue to be the Easter staple for girls, Casper says. “The Lands’ End collection features girly, fun and twirl-ready pieces that are not too over the top, so they can be worn again for other occasions,” she says. Seasonal accessories such as tights, scarves, headbands and glittery ballet flats are a great way to infuse personality, sparkle and shine into an outfit, Casper says.
Women “This spring, it’s all about fresh blooms in vibrant colors — essentially a modern garden party,” she says. Another spring trend is mixing prints and patterns. Try mixing two to three prints and patterns in one outfit, whether it’s your scarf, your top, your cardigan or your pants, she suggests. “At Lands’ End, we love pairing our florals with classic stripes, such as a floral crop pant topped with a classic, two-color stripe boat neck tee,” she says. New this spring is cropped floral chinos, bejeweled cardigans and “optimistic color” in everything including the cotton Drifter cable crewneck sweater, the iconic cotton/modal wrap dress and the pretty chic polos, she says.
Men “For Easter, men can’t go wrong with a traditional, light-blue shirt,” Casper says. She recommends the Lands’ End no iron pinpoint Supima dress shirt. It comes in three different collar choices, including button down, straight and spread. Men who would like to add a little more color to their Easter outfit can go with a seasonal pink or green dress shirt. “Pairing any of these dress shirts with a great Silk Repp necktie or a seasonable fabric like a linen Oxford necktie will give any man a fashionable Easter look,” Casper says. kc
