Pinks, plaids, florals and shorts: The hottest Easter fashions for kids

Easter is coming and that means it’s time to dress our little ones in the most adorable outfits imaginable.

Amy Goodman, senior lifestyle editor for, stopped by TODAY Friday with a fashion show starring darling young models showing off ideas that will have your kids looking cute and current while staying comfortable.

Retro rose quartz

“We know that rose quartz is one of Pantone’s hot colors of the year,” Goodman said. “It goes beautifully in Easter.


She put one pint-size model in a darling floral dress. “It has that great tropical print that is so fresh,” Goodman said, along with “so-cute military-style boots.”


The other too-sweet, Jackie O-inspired look featured a pink jacquard polka dot jacket with a matching dress, mod sunglasses and short booties with bows. “It kind of wraps up that 1960s retro look,” Goodman said.


Bohemian Rhapsody

“I love the idea of actually doing a lot of trend for Easter and kind of making it super fresh,” Goodman said. “Stripes are really in and of course, the embroidery is also super on-trend for the season.”


She wore dress in bold colors topped with a striped poncho. He was sporting a shirt with stripes of embroidery down the front.

Shorts for Easter


“This is how you can dress up shorts for the season,” Goodman said.

He wore shorts with a shirt, vest and $5 bow tie, and chambray sneakers. “I love a vest on a little boy,” Goodman said.

She wore a romper that looked chic when dressed up with accessories like an always cool fedora and a long necklace.

Picnic plaid

Plaid always signals the start of spring.


She wore a sunny yellow cardigan over a bold plaid dress. “We’ve seen that yellow everywhere on the red carpet,” Goodman said.

He had a plaid shirt with a parka and pants and a tropical-print slip-on sneaker.

Gazebo groupies


“This is a different way to do the suit look by doing separates,” Goodman said.

He was wearing a cozy sweater-type blazer and chinos. “These are everywhere for boys,” Goodman said of the jacket.

And she wore an adorable floral dress. “The great botanical floral is absolutely everywhere this season,” Goodman said.

Here’s to a happy, well-dressed holiday!
