Your kids get cute new Easter outfits each year, but what about you? Easter attire doesn’t have to be all about the pastels and lace. Take your cues from your daughter and rock these mommy-and-me outfits this year.

Lace, done right

Newsflash: You can wear lace this Easter without looking as if you pulled out your prom dress from 1992. A touch of lace here and there is chic and modern, and also a bit sweet — instantly upgrading a simple, everyday dress into one that is worthy of Easter church service and brunch.

FOR YOU^ Pair this dress with a pair of wedge espadrilles and some colorful, chunky bracelets to complete the look. Xhilaration High Low Lace Trim Maxi Dress, available in additional colors ($28, Target, in stores and online)

Ditch the dress

Remember last Easter? How you spent most of the afternoon trying to keep your rear end covered while crouching down to help your toddler pick-up Easter eggs? Forget the flashing this year with a pair of, gasp, pants! Keep them fitted, patterned and pretty to help fend off critical stares from your dress-clad relatives.

Show pastels the door

Stand out this Easter with anything but pretty pink, baby blue or duckling yellow. Instead, try navy! Despite being dark for such a light-hearted holiday, navy is a classic color that is appropriate any time of year and for any occasion. You can dress it up, dress it way up, or dress it down to fit your Easter plans this year.
