Heading off to brunch? Enlist the help of a Little Colorful Dress (LCD). Think of it as the daytime version of your LBD: A no-fail, works-for-all-occasions wardrobe staple in a bright cheerful color that feels less fussy and more appropriate for daytime. Swap out heels for a less expected (and more comfortable) look—don’t worry, pointy-toed flats still skew dressy—and add a statement necklace to maximize full outfit potential.To buy: Banana Republic dress, $138; bananarepublic.com.

If your holiday plans involve a little quiet time with the family (and maybe a creative kids’ craft or two), rejoice in the comfort of jeans and a cozy sweater. Instead of the usual white tee and blue denim, try a seasonally-appropriate—not to mention flattering—palette of pastels. You’ll look pulled-together (and perfectly color-coordinated for any Instagram photos to show off your Easter egg prowess).

If you’ve got something a little more formal on the schedule (be it a church banquet or dinner with the in-laws), opt for an ensemble with slightly fancier features. A midi skirt in an A-line cut looks great on all body types and works with any dress code. Pair it with a simple silk blouse and a pair of pretty sandals for a look that exudes ladylike appeal.
