Once Christmas and New Year are over, it can sometimes feel like a long wait until there’s anything to celebrate again. This is only added to by the arrival of winter and some of the coldest months of the year, making things feel extra dreary! However, as things begin to brighten up again around March, and spring is on the horizon, you might start thinking about Easter and the prospect of Easter dresses.
Falling on Sunday 12th April this year, while Easter is traditionally a Christian festival it can be celebrated by anyone who wants to and in any way you like, especially since it means a Bank Holiday for many of us! If you’re someone who loves Easter, you’ll know how exciting it is to have a good excuse to get dressed up for this important holiday at a seemingly unimportant time of the year. And, if you’re a teen (or approaching that age), you’ll also know that it can be difficult at times to transition your formal wardrobe from that of a young girl to an older, more mature one.
If you feel like you fit into this category, fear not! Easter is a wonderful, joyous occasion, so we’ve put together a quick and easy guide to Easter dresses for teen girls if you aren’t sure how to show off your style for whatever event or plans you have this year. Whatever your taste, we’ve got you covered.
Getting in the Spirit
Yellow is a colour that many are people of scared when it comes to their wardrobes, but it’s the perfect festive shade for Easter, reminding us of fluffy newly-hatched chicks and the fresh colours of spring, so there’s no reason you can’t wear it to celebrate the occaion. One way to do this if you aren’t sure is by wearing a pale, pastel yellow that isn’t too bright or overbearing.
For example, this yellow bouclé dress would be the perfect Easter outfit. The pastel shade is the epitome of spring and it’s not too pale that it would wash you out.
The silhouette is also crucial – big, puffball skirts are often associated with younger girls, so if you’re looking to transform your wardrobe and show off your sophistication this mature A-line shape is a wonderful option. Added extras come in the form of ruffled shoulder details, an elegant bouclé fabric and jewelled buttons down the centre of the bodice.

Aside from yellow, one of the other obvious options for colours that automatically shout “spring” is green. It’s the colour of the leaves on the trees around us that quite literally signify that winter is nearly over and it has positive connotations of growth and positivity.
This Easter, try it in a soft mint shade like this.
In a similar style to the yellow gown above, this gorgeous green number is an excellent choice for teenage or slightly older girls. Again, the A-line shape is understated and elegant, its textured bouclé fabric gives it an extra edge, especially with the gold and green buttons down the bodice front. The unique bit of the dress here is the frill shoulder detail which acts like a cropped cape, reminiscent of the outfits of old Hollywood stars like Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn who embody femininity and sophistication. You’ll be sure to impress at any formal Easter event in your social calendar with this edgy, unique look.

Carrying on the theme of pastels again is this Cinderella-esque sky-blue ball gown. If you have an Easter garden party, or some sort of outdoor celebration to dress for, opt for something like this bold, dramatic piece to show off risk-taking style while the weather permits.
This powder blue number features a chic boat neck, slight puffed sleeves and a skater skirt, finished with bow details and the eye-catching feather motif which covers the entirety of the gown. Match with a blue headband and clutch bag for a striking monochromatic look that demonstrates maturity of style.
This frosted blue headband is particularly striking; the gold and blue rose detailing is set against a luxe grosgrain ribbon, brining an instant addition of glamour to any Easter outfit.

Now it’s widely assumed that younger girls are the age group who prefer puff ball dresses and ultra-feminine, girly girl styles. But that’s not to say older girls can’t pull them off either. But, as you enter your teenage years you come closer to adulthood, so it’s important to reflect those changes in the way you dress so you remain age appropriate without compromising style.
If you are looking for a slightly girlier Easter dress this year, try something like this ivory gown.
This pale, off-white shade is light and refreshing, perfectly in time for spring (and you can wear it into summer too). The Bardot neck line has been a huge trend in the last few years, and you can get on board with the look with this gown, however the straps keep it slightly more reserved and suited to teens. To complete the piece are puffed sleeves hand-finished with jewels and pearl accents, while oversized bows are perfect for those of you might be a more of a maximalist.

It’s important to remember that Easter is a time for positivity, and a reason for hope and celebration, so it’s wonderful to replicate this in what you wear for the occasion. As you experiment with different styles and find out what’s right for you as you get older, why not try some of these bold, bright colours for Easter as part of the process?
