Aside from the 4-day weekend, Easter is all about get-togethers with friends and family. Indulging in a sit-down Sunday lunch is a tradition that still runs true for many; it’s also a perfect excuse to meet the parents if you’re one half of a couple. Whether it’s your first time meeting the family or not, making a good impression at the dinner table is, of course, imperative. Start with your style, and dress to impress with these sweet (but not sickly) his and her Easter looks.

True Blue

For Her

The floral dress is a spring must-have, and this dainty blue shift ticks all the boxes. The pointed collar has a traditionalist appeal that gran will love, whilst its mini length and bold print keeps this dress youthful. Pair it with opaque tights and loafers, accessorising with a satchel bag for a quirky, vintage-inspired finish.

For Him

Never underestimate the power of a classic fitted shirt. Cut in a pure cotton, this navy one certainly suggests ‘good egg with good taste.’ Wear with straight or skinny leg jeans to get that smart-casual balance just right, then keep it in your wardrobe as a go-to for any occasion.

Check Mate

For Her

For pared-back perfection, this checked shirt is an ideal option. Cut loose to create an effortless silhouette, it’s ideal for family lunches; plus, it has a Little House on the Prairie vibe that the parents will appreciate. Sure, it’s sweet as apple pie (though whoever said that was a bad thing?), but you can easily create an edgier look with skinny jeans and ankle boots. If you want to smarten up for the occasion, wear with a pair of black tailored trousers instead.

For Him

This multi checked shirt is perfect for impressing the parents; styled to fit casually, it bridges the gap between over and under-dressed. Wear with your favourite jeans and a pair of chukka boots for a look that’s smart and effortless all at once.

Earn Your Stripes

For Her

This striped midi dress is one of those ‘perfect for anything’ pieces that you’ll wear time and again. Bardot shoulders are beautifully balanced with a mid-length finish, making this versatile piece suitable for both day and night. Pair with simple heels or flats and a leather jacket; you never know, a post-dinner walk might be in order so taking that extra layer is a must.

For Him

Simple stripes are an easy-to-wear choice for any occasion. Smarten up this black and white basic with your favourite chinos; a plum or burgundy coloured pair will work especially well and break up the monochromatic palette of your outfit. For off-duty days, this t-shirt can be pared down with basic jeans and trainers, or even jean shorts over summer.

All Wrapped Up

For Her

At this time of year, it’s fair to want to swap out your heavyweight coat for something a little lighter. As an alternative for spring, layer up with this tailored gilet and keep yourself cosy by wearing it over a jumper. A sleeveless jacket is an ideal trans-seasonal purchase since it’s got so many styling options, taking you into the warmer months with ease.

For Him

With its street-style aesthetic, you’ll cut a sharp figure in this urbane trench coat. Classically crafted in a cool khaki, it’s one of those easy-to-wear pieces you can throw over anything. Impress the parents by pairing it with a long-sleeved basic top and coordinating jeans; stick to a muted palette to really showcase this trench’s sleek appeal.

Roll with It

For Her

Eternally chic, the black roll neck is a key piece for any wardrobe. Pair this simple top with an A-line skirt and loafer shoes for a 60’s-inspired look that’s both subtle and stylish. It’s the perfect trans-seasonal option for cooler spring days – yet with a classic charm, you’ll wear it year after year.

For Him

Keep things matchy matchy with this lightweight roll neck jumper. Classically styled, a roll neck knit will fare well during chillier months and can be worn with your jeans on off-duty days. Always a versatile option, smarten up for your Sunday roast this Easter by pairing it with chinos and brogues or loafers.
