Children’s outfits for Easter are what brings life to the party, when done right. They are full of life and color. Cute, frilly dresses for girls and gentleman shirts and ties for boys are always popular during Easter. However aside from the typical dress up for kids, there are also particular costumes that can make the day much more special for them and the people around them. Incorporating flowers and animals in clothing for children is a brilliant addition to this day and must be experienced by every parent out there celebrating Easter this year. In this article, I will give you ideas on how to dress your child for Easter, and I’m not here to give you basic suggestions because I want to make sure this Easter stands out for you and your family more than the others!
Pastel colors are seen constantly throughout this season as they add to the soft vibes of this occasion, so why not dress your children up in pastels? Girls and boys both, because boys do not always have to wear dark. Aside from solid colors, rainbow colored outfit can be styled to match the occasion just as well. So if you want something more vibrant than pastels, I’d recommend rainbow themed outfit.The multi color theme is seasonal and keeping up with Easter. Add to these a nice pair of dolly shoes or pumps which can either be plain, patterned or embellished with flowers or even little rabbits.
Tips for dressing up your child on Easter:
- For those mommies worried about their babies staining their clothes, you just have to let it slide every now and then especially if your child is going to stand out among the other kids!
- Easter bunnies are seen everywhere around this time of the year so why not use it to its full potential and incorporate them into your baby girl’s outfit through bunny ear hand bands!
- The great thing about baby wear is that they will look amazing in any festive attire so why not go the whole nine yards and go for a full rabbit, lamb or even Easter egg costume?
- Romper suits or onesies are more fitting for babies than toddlers.
- Dungarees, sleeveless jumpers and waistcoats are fitting for baby boys, given that they match the climate and weather of you live so your child does not feel cold.
- Though girls and boys dress up has been strictly differentiated between for years but now gender norms are changing and cuddly lambs and flowers are not limited to girls only so do not be afraid to slip your toddler into whatever you think looks best on them.
- Baby accessories will depend entirely on the outfit you have chosen, such as a plain pastel outfit with some bunny ears.
- Make sure to get clothes that are made of washing friendly material because as soon as your child smears some chocolate on their outfit, it will be time for it to go to the machine.

This is the most classy look a toddler can manage! Get your baby boy a plaid collared shirt with some formal pants and a suspender, preferably that comes in a set and watch him grow into an ultimate gentleman this Easter. This outfit will definitely make everyone turn their heads in awe at your son. The most suitable colors to choose from would be all the rainbow colors, as dull or neutral colors are too formal for the occasion. The suspenders should definitely be black or grey so they can be conveniently worn by your baby on other occasions as well.
4. Overall Skirt Set
Take your baby girl’s style to the next level with this skirt set that screams lady. It consists of a cute polka dotted button up paired with a green overall skirt which perfectly blends in with the button up.

This ensemble works perfectly fine for an occasion like Easter.
5. Frilly Princess Frocks
Your little one will look the most angelic kid on Easter in this pretty pearl embellished lavender gown. Frilly dresses like these look best on toddlers because they can walk and the dress fits them perfectly rather than a baby that does not know how to walk yet. Pair this dress with some white tights so your child does not feel cold, which it may be in some parts of the world. A matching white pair of Mary Jane pumps will uplift this look even more!
6. Floral Frocks
There is nothing sweeter than floral prints to greet the spring time. This Easter, dress your little one up in a floral printed dress which will definitely be more convenient than other options. Alongside it being convenient, your child will feel like a little family in the Easter environment, especially if you get her some sparkly wings to go along with it. Little girls love nothing more than flowers, sparkle and putting on a show. Purchase floral dresses for your toddler right away from your nearest kids’ store.
7. Vintage Set
You can not get any more classy than vintage dresses on your little ones. We’re obsessed with puffy sleeves because of how intricate they are, so why not add a dress with puffy sleeves to your list of baby shopping. There is nothing better than neutral colored dresses with the perfect twirl to begin spring and welcome Easter. You can top up your toddler’s wardrobe with these from anywhere because many shops offer a section of vintage clothes for children. Furthermore make sure to match these dresses with white tights and shoes with a little bow on them to compliment the overall look. Easter will never be boring if you put in such effort for your children’s clothes, trust me.
8. Bunny Costume
The ultimate bunny costumes is for those babies who are busy snuggling with you on the couch rather than being able to hunt for eggs outside. Therefore it is vital to make them feel included in this event somehow, which can be done in the easiest way possible by dressing them up in such a costume. A soft oonesie with bunny ears attached to it will have the whole neighborhood gushing over your baby for the day. Easter is not Easter until someone shows up in a bunny costume! Hand your baby a carrot plushie to complete their look.
9. Chick Costume
This is the most cuddly Easter outfit out there for your baby, especially first time moms who want their baby to be a part of all the festivities while remaining as toasty as possible. The chick gives a nod to the festivities of Easter as an egg that has just hatched, so go traditional this Easter! Plus the yellow color is ideal for spring. Moreover such costumes are easy to find once Easter season hits because shops are competing with each other to provide the best outfits for all the Easter mommies out there, so you need not worry about any difficulty in finding this outfit.

10. Bunny Ties for the gentlemen
While many parents dress their baby boys in suits and formal wear for Easter, they tend to forget to add a tie to it or even if they do, they do not get a tie that matches the spirit of Easter. My point being that with such formal wear, you have to add a small burst of color or a token that represents Easter as well. For example ties with bunnies embroidered on them or a golden and white print to commence the festivities. By purchasing such significant pieces you will have an Easter outfit for your baby ready on the go always, as you can dress them in anything as long as you add a little touch of Easter to it.
11. Dungarees with a twist of Easter
This dress is available at amazon and made from pure cotton which makes it 100% washable and can be worn on many other occasions by your baby along with Easter. The sweet addition of bunny ears makes it perfect for Easter but also keeps the dress subtle for any other event as well. If the spring in your area starts off cold then pair this dress with some white soft tights otherwise your baby will pull it off with a pair of shorts as well. The cutest pairing with this dress will be some bunny pumps which you can also find easily on Amazon. An outfit brought to you by Amazon entirely!
13. The Perfect Easter Basket
For Easter it is essential that you not only plant eggs in the yard but also leave little hints of the festivity throughout your house. There is an easy way to do this for mothers with babies because on your next trip to the toy store, purchase some stuffed toys that align with Easter, such as bunnies, carrots, eggs, chicks etc. By doing this you will be making your baby happy with a bunch of new toys as well as signing up for a lifetime of Easter props at your house now!
