An element of tradition remains as churchgoers put on freshly pressed dresses and starched trousers for spring church services, recognizing the beginning of a new season and the celebration of new life.

Consider meshing church tradition with your own personal style as you put together your Sunday best this Easter.

Decide what you're most comfortable wearing. If your friend tells you that his family always wears jeans to church but you feel it is important to be more formal, go with your instincts.

Let your outfit emphasize the celebratory occasion. Easter is a great time to wear those freshly-starched linen pants, floral skirts, or patent leather shoes you bought at a spring sale.

Take advantage of the opportunity to don your lavish duds, especially if it is rare that you have the opportunity to dress up.

Avoid wearing low-cut shirts, short skirts and sleeveless clothing. Modesty is typically the best policy for Sunday services, especially if you are unfamiliar with church customs.

Select accessories (jewelry, scarves and ties) that tie your outfit together without being too flashy or gaudy.

When in doubt, consider dressing as you would for work. Business casual is usually formal enough, not too stuffy, and appropriate attire for most churches.
