Disclosure: Thank you to JCPenney and ShopStyle for partnering on today’s post.
Fashion wise, Easter is traditionally a time to break out your pastel dresses, some seersucker, gingham, maybe even a little white [before Memorial Day – GASP!]. But who wants to be traditional? I mean, I get that there are plenty of instances where tradition rules, but when it comes to fashion, the rules are meant to be broken. Who made the rules anyways?
Think about it… How are you supposed to win the Easter egg hunt when you’re wearing a dress and stilettos? That doesn’t make it very convenient for running in the yard! So this year I’m suggesting a game changer! Swap the dress out for pants. Yep, we’re going to make Easter pants a thing. I’m not saying they have to be covered in bunnies and eggs, but a fun pop of color, a little crop, and you’ve got yourself some Easter pants!
This year, I’m partnering with JCPenney to challenge you to lose the dress, and swap it out for pants! You can still have the dressed up look, and even still have the pastel colors if you so choose! I grew up shopping JCPenney, and here I am, in my thirties, still finding great pieces there! I know that when I shop there, I can find tons of on-trend looks at fantastic prices. They have so many great brands, like A.N.A, Worthington, Levi’s, and Liz Claiborne, which allow me to get items for the right price without sacrificing style!
Now that you know where you can get everything included in this post, let’s get back to making Easter pants happen this year!
I chose a pant color that pops without being a traditional [there’s that word again!] Easter pastel or print. This style comes in a few other colors and prints, and hits at the perfect ankle length. These would also make fantastic work pants to get you out of the black and tan rut!

So many times we use our tops as the focal point of our outfit, but when your pants are the focus, you can keep the top more neutral! I picked out two tops – different styles and different colors- so whatever is more your look! I love the balloon sleeves of this top, and think the white keeps everything lighter- perfect if you’re going to be spending Easter in a warmer climate!
The black top has a wrap tie waist, which is super flattering for any body type! And if your Easter forecast is stuck in winter mode, this color may be more up your alley!

Can you ever have too many pairs of black heels? I think not. I start wearing my open toe heels around this time each year, and my feet are always so excited to see the sunshine again! These shoes are simple enough that they add some height, but still keep eyes on the pants! Plus the block heel makes Easter egg hunts a bit easier than trying to do that with a pointed heel.
Will you be switching it up this year and going with pants, or will you be sticking with a traditional Easter dress?
For your pinning pleasure…
