Let's be honest—nobody in your family cares what you wear to this year's Easter festivities, but if you're going to spend the weekend rotating between church and stealing chocolate from your little cousins, you might as well look good doing it. Ahead, 15 cute-but-family-appropriate Easter dresses that can also double for the office.
Faithfull The Brand Net-a-Porter
This lightweight crepe minidress screams Easter brunch with the family. Re-wear it on a Saturday afternoon at the park or as a cute beach cover-up.
Lou & Grey
This chevron stripe maxi dress is patiently waiting to be worn for a untraditional casual day of Easter festivities. Read: watching TV and playing board games after you decided to skip church. (We won't tell.)
TADASHI SHOJI Nordstrom
On the other hand, there's this straight-from-Church-to-dinner dress that's also waiting for you.
Somebody stop me from ordering this floral GANNI wrap dress immediately. It's just the right mix of stylish and elegant, and can be worn to the office all summer.
The perfect pleated dress exists. Throw on a leather jacket if you want to make the outfit a bit edgier.
For a sophisticated, worry-free pick of eating too many marshmallow peeps, choose this button-down t-shirt dress. Throw on a belt around the waist for a more flattering fit.
Behold: The official Easter Egg Hunt denim dress that will pair perfectly with sandals (watching the little cousins search for them) or sneakers (making it a personal mission to find the eggs before they do).
Okay, so this might not be the best option if you want to avoid grass stains, but the brilliant asymmetrical detailing is fully worth skipping the chocolate for a pic on the 'gram instead. Trust.
Put on this super affordable Zara slip dress over a white t-shirt and assure Grandma you wouldn't dare wear it without anything underneath.
If you don't have time to think about all of the comments your conservative family will make on your outfit, this classic tweed dress is a safe, bullshit-free pick.
Oh, this old thing? Sometimes a girl just needs to look like the best, fanciest version of herself and this silk wrap dress does the trick.
ASTR the Label Shopbop
The best part about this boatneck long-sleeve floral dress? It can also be worn out to dinner with girlfriends.
Those who prefer a more bohemian style will appreciate this flowy, floral embroidered dress.
W118 by Walter Baker The Outnet
A romantic floral dress with ruffled trims belongs in every woman's closet, Easter or not. Grab a pair of thigh-high boots if it's a little cooler outside. Don't forget to scoop up a The Outnet promo code before you buy it.
Something Navy Nordstrom
At first glance it's hard to see how lightweight this midi dress is. Add the tie-waist and puffed shoulders, and you look the hard-working professional your family knows and loves.
