Did you notice that Easter is on April Fools this year? And y’all don’t believe that God has a sense of humor? Although Easter is a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, you still want to look your best. If you read the story of how Jesus was crucified and then he rose 3 days later, you would want to step into church in your Sundays best too, making the Devil angry. My fiancé thinks I can do no wrong when it comes to how I dress, but I love to dress up and I love to look good. Going to church is no different. So, I figured I’d share a chic yet modest look for Easter.
Something Fun and Photo-Loving…
This Asos dress is absolutely breath-taking. I love the pretty pastel pink with the sequins for added sparkle. I love to look good for and going to church is no different.
It is a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and its okay to look my best. I feel like this dress can be worn in so many ways, not just for Easter, but brunch, engagement parties, etc. You can never go wrong with pastel pink for spring and the A-line silhouette screams darling.
Although Easter happens to be on the first day AND Sunday of April, most churches have communion as well and the women tends to wear white so this dress from Eloquii would be perfect. I get a mature vibe from this piece with the form fitting and the bell sleeves. If you’re looking for a more casual look, try this dress from Asos. The pleats add a relaxed vibe, perfect for praise dancing!
Although there are plenty fashionistas that are like me, wanting to look fashionable for church, a few of my modest tips that I am practicing myself is to make sure that I keep my cleavage covered and to wear my dress at or below my knees. I also shy away from tanks or anything that is not at least a 3/4 length for my sleeves (not for just modesty, but my church tends to get cold!). If I’m wearing a dress that has spaghetti straps, or strapless, I wear a blazer or cardigan.
Now, there may be a few people who will argue that we should “come as we are” and it shouldn’t matter how we dress, the truth is, it matters how you dress. For me, being fashionable is fun! Also, dress for location of the occasion.
