Going to brunch? Just as with church, choose an outfit that will be comfortable and easy to wear in a brunch setting. How about an Easter egg hung? Egg rolls and Easter egg hunts are fun for the whole family. Choose comfortable shoes that are appropriate for the setting, for example if he will be running around in the grass, he will want flexible shoes with good traction.

3. Choose spring colors and materials. After dreary days, our hearts lighten at the first peeks of spring weather, and we want to dress accordingly! Even if it's overcast, lighter colors and fabrics evoke the spirit of Eastertide: rebirth and renewal. Whether it's a soft grey suit, linen trousers or bright, cheerful shirts and accessories, keep it light and happy. If you will be attending a formal event, linen or lightweight wool is appropriate. If it will be a casual affair, cotton is versatile and easy to care for, and linen is still a great choice. (Did I mention I LOVE linen on boys??) A word about linen: many young boys haven't had the opportunity to own any linen or hemp clothing. My own son, loves linen best, as it's soft, flexible and breathable. Never fear the wrinkles. No one will care, as linen always has a few wrinkles, and he will be comfortable all day.

I never worried about dry cleaning or care - let them have fun on this special day. The whole point of having nice things is to use them. (Heck, I throw all that linen and merino in the washer...shhh!!) Your washing machine or dry cleaner can fix up whatever he can dish out. And if it can't? So what? They are boys. No one expects them to be perfect all the time. :-) That said, will you worry all day about that white linen shirt or beige suit jacket? If you are concerned about damage to a fancy outfit, simply choose one made of durable and washable fabrics, in a slightly darker color (or brighter-think blue or red) and spend the day carefree. Who wants to worry about his clothes on Easter Sunday?

6. Don't forget about your boys! Little girls shouldn't get to have all the fun. Choose a pretty dress for yourself and any little girls in the family, and don't let the men off the hook! A family is a unit, and everyone shold dress appropriately for the occasion. If boys make a fuss and don't want to dress up, perhaps you just haven't found the right style for them yet. I've noticed a number of boys really turn around when they see how stylish they look and how much more comfortable slacks are than jeans. Boys look fantastic in a suit, and inexpensive options from modern designers like Appaman (a personal favorite) are undeniably cool. Choose a light colored suit, like camel or grey for Easter, or even a jacket and shorts if the weather is warm.
