What to Wear for the Long Weekend

Laura Blog - What to Wear for Easter Long Weekend - Laura - Spring 2019

The snow is melting, flowers are blooming and spirits are lifting. Frankly, it’s finally starting to feel like spring. With the long weekend right around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to take the leap and bring out your spring-summer clothes. That means light fabrics, bright colours and vibrant prints. If you’re still not sure what to wear for all your plans, here are a few options that always work for spring.


Take the guesswork out of styling and slip into a comfortable dress for a one-and-done outfit. Fit and flare or sheath silhouettes are easy options for everything from Sunday brunch to an afternoon scavenger hunt with the kids. You can even kick your look up a notch by pairing a dress with heels and hoop earrings.


If you want to wear something festive for the holiday weekend or just want to brighten up your outfits all season long, opt for pastel shades of yellow, pink or blue. Soft tones pair well with neutrals like black and white so you won’t have a problem matching them with pieces you already own. Wearing light hues can be as simple as adding just one pastel piece to an outfit. It could be a jacket, a pair of pants or a sleeveless top.


April weather can be unpredictable so it’s always best to have a warmer option on hand. Wearing a cardigan or a bolero is the easiest way to beat the chill while also being able to take off a layer if the sun gets too hot.


Floral prints come back every year—with good reason. Whether you think florals for spring is a cliché or not, you can’t deny that it’s a tried-and-true trend. With bold blooms, you get to reflect the colours of the new season while adding vibrancy to your look. It’s also the easiest statement print to turn to if you’re in a pinch to find an outfit. Try pairing floral print pants with a casual tee and a pendant necklace.
