Easter Sunday snuck up on all of us. For many, it was a day spent with family or friends, while others spent the holiday catching up on a weekend’s worth of homework. Whatever we spent the day doing, we all incorporated spring fashion into our Easter.
I spent my Easter doing a combination of all of these things, and decided to wear a sundress with a magenta cardigan– an Easter staple. As I made my way to different events to celebrate the day, I realized that traditional pastel-colored sweaters are no longer a popular style. This year, it was an opportunity for girls to break away from the norm. They wore pastels, but incorporated them into innovative styles, such as florals, patterns, jewelry, and even shoes to highlight their personal style.
In the morning, I attended mass with Kaitlyn Mullaly and Jaime Rompel, who are both Resident Assistants in Fields Hall. The stylish duo decided to wear dresses for the occasion. Jaime rocked a peach-colored sundress while Kaitlyn dressed up her long-sleeved floral sundress with a white statement necklace. In the past, the girls claimed that they traditionally wore colored sweaters, but this year they felt the need to branch out and wear the colors in new ways.
“Dressing up for holidays is one thing, but dressing up for Easter is always exciting because of all the beautiful colors!” Mullaly exclaimed.
The afternoon was spent with a friend’s family in Vancouver, Washington. My friend, Martha Olson, and her sister Ruth decided to dress in matching outfits for Easter, each wearing an identical dress and sweater with equally stylish necklaces. This new look (or old look, however you look at it) brought smiles to everyone’s faces. The girls thought Easter would be the perfect time to wear matching outfits, because they love colorful dresses and agreed on one they both adored. Also, the family occasion made it more fun for the sisters to show off their looks.
“We were looking at pictures last week, and realized that we always used to dress the same. We thought it would be fun to relive the past,” Olson said. “It’s been really fun to see how our family responded to our decision.”
Easter brought innovation through colorful style this year. Spring is a fun season to be a part of, and this new interpretation of Easter style proved it!
