Wow, it’s Easter, another season of sightseeing and fun. Easter Sunday and Monday are usually when friends and families go to picnics and parties at the beach, movies and every other fun place.
For Easter, it’s better to go for lighter, fun yet practical dressing. Beach outfits that are a little dressy are great for dates at the beach or beach events like a concert.
Casual beach outfits are for those days when you want to go to the beach but not get into the water but you’re relishing it from afar. Some beach outfits are made up of a cute bikini and maybe a cover-up.
So, how exactly do you want to look at Easter?
Do you want to be classically chic? Or would you rather prefer the boho look? Probably you just want to feel young and sexy?
You just don the beach outfit that speaks class and that will also send the right statement across. Happy Easter fashionistas!
Dressy beach style
White looks good for a beach trip, so try out a white long sleeve blouse and match it with colourful tropical shorts on wedged sandals and a fedora hat.
Do you want to take a plunge into the ocean? Doing so in your bikini would be lovely. If you want to cover up your body and especially if you are in rowdy beach, then you can add floral and flowing beach kimono with a wide brimmed hat and then just sit and enjoy the sun.
Fun with prints
You can combine two distinct prints but make sure they are both of the same colour scheme. If you get the prints combo right, you will be having loads of fun with it. You can also add a striped shoulder bag and sunglasses.
The sky is blue and you can as well reflect that for a beach outing. You can match a blue dress with wedge sandals, a fedora and a lightweight denim jacket.
Wow, maxis are perfect for a beach picnic too and with heels or sandals to match. The maxi gives you a beautiful feel and it’s classic. Get an accordion maxi pleated skirt with a top and dangling chandelier earrings.
Jeans all the way
You can no ever go wrong in a pair of jeans at the beach. Your jeans can be normal length, three quarter or shorts. Match it with a simple spaghetti blouse and sandals.
Denims on denims
A light-wash denim jacket, colorful tee and some fun animal print flats are good for a slightly cold or windy day as well as suitable as casuals.

The problem with genuine patriots is that they always carry about a strange death wish. In fact, the most significant test for patriotism is the willingness to give up one’s life for one’s country.
