Irresistible Easter Outfits Ideas

Bring on the pastels!

It’s time to start shopping for your children’s Easter outfits. This spring’s collections are especially beautiful. (Spoiler alert: seersucker, smocking and puff sleeves!)

Let’s dive right in!

La Coqueta is a stunning Spanish brand founded by a mother of five. The pieces are jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

The Pink Multi Provenza Girl Dress bursts with delicate springtime beauty. Available in sizes 2Y to 10Y for $90, it’s an heirloom dress.

Here’s a closer look at the luscious pattern. It is the Dress of the Year.

If you’re a Gen Y mom and you can’t quite determine why this dress stirs up nostalgia, this might help you.

All the La Coqueta dresses deserve a look, but another stand-out is the Multi Odisea Girl Dress, with its striking collar and whimsical floral pattern.

Upon closer inspection, you’ll find little bunnies frolicking throughout the flowers.

The Multi Odisea dress also retails for $90 and comes in 2Y to 10Y. Pair it with brightly colored leather T-bar shoes and, on top, a coordinating headband or the charming Black Rambla Hat, and you’ll be Instagramming all Easter.

La Coqueta’s offerings for boys do not disappoint, from the baby boy sets to the preppy  chinos.

Their knits are in a class of their own — intricate and buttery soft. Seeing is believing! The Sage Green Selvas Boy Cardigan (sizes 2Y to 10Y) is the perfect choice for a Minnesota Easter. Complete the look with the White Jazmin Linen Mix Boy Shirt and the Navy Bocusi Boy Bermuda Shorts.

If you’re working with a smaller budget, Walmart’s spring collection includes the Wonder Nation Girls’ Puff Sleeve Dress in sizes 4-18 (and plus). The combination of puffy sleeves, a smocked bodice and wooden buttons makes for a dress that’s fun to wear and looks higher-end than the price tag.

There’s something about yellow gingham that radiates sunny charm.

The Puff Sleeve Dress also comes in a coral-aqua combo, which matches the multi-plaid Wonder Nation Long Sleeve Button-Up Shirt. Another Walmart stand-out this spring is the Wonder Nation Button-Down Shirt, Bowtie, Suspenders & Pants Outfit in sizes 0/3 months to 5T. Check out that dapper blue floral pattern!

That brings us to Janie & Jack’s adorable Bunny Bowtie, which is available in three sizes and on sale for $18.99.

Janie & Jack’s suspender shorts also deliver old-timey charm. Here’s the Baby Embroidered Bunny Suspender Short ($38.99, sizes 0-3 to 18-24 month) and the Baby Seersucker Suspender Short ($34.99, 0-3 to 18-24 month).

The only thing better than suspender shorts is seersucker suspender shorts!

This spring Janie & Jack rolled out its new Smocked Shop, a line-up of smocked dresses  including these two floral frocks. The collection includes The Floral Smocked Bubble Sleeve Dress ($74, sizes 6-12 month to 12Y), at left, and The Grace Floral Smocked Puff Sleeve Dress ($84, sizes 8 to 18).

Meanwhile, Gymboree is leaning into pastel purple for its Easter attire.

The Girls Embroidered Flower Cardigan and Hydrangea Dress Set (center) is on sale for $58.99 with limited availability in sizing.

The show-stealer might be the Girls Embroidered Hummingbird Top ($18.87, sizes 12-18 month to 10Y), which you can pair with the $4.98 flower crown, the $19.77 hydrangea-print skort and the irresistible hydrangea-print ballet flats. They’re half-off at $18.48 in sizes Toddler 5 to Youth 3. If you’re gonna snap up one new item this Easter, these ballet flats might be your best bet.

Although your daughter might be more excited by the Bunny Ballet Flats.

At $25.87, the remaining sizes available range from Toddler 9 to Youth 3.

Gymboree’s $24.47 Boys Carrot Seersucker Shorts (left), in 2T to 8, also may entice you — or its Boys Plaid Blazer, now half off for $34.98 in sizes 12-18 month to 12Y.

Lastly, don’t miss by the new Official Peter Rabbit Baby Clothes line by the British brand Joules. It includes a $26.95 knitted sweater, soft footed jammies and these two charmers: the Peter Rabbit Miya Cotton Pinafore Dress Set, on sale for $33.95 in sizes 1 month to 18-24, and the Peter Rabbit Wilbur Organically Grown Cotton Overall Set, also $33.95 in sizes 1 month to 18-24.

There you have it! Happy shopping!
