Easter Sunday is just a hop away, but when it comes to the latest fashions for kids there's lots of charming options. What's big on the bunny hop style scene include festive plays on prints, pops of color and lots of adorable accessories. At we love trendy looks that are both affordable for kiddos and wearable long beyond the photo op with the Easter bunny.

Dresses with floral embroidery hit a perfect spring note for girls, especially when paired with petal-pink organza that shines sweetly through. Look for fresh interpretations of lace like this bodice coupled with tiers of chevron. No longer the unbearably itchy construction that sent kids cringing in yesteryear, today's lace incorporates softer yarns that leaves kids comfy.

For final touches, give a girl an accessory she loves and watch her rock it, as with this irresistible straw cloche and cross-body purse.

Taking a cue from the past, retro-inspired prints are having a big moment. Look for bold colors and geometric prints as seen here on these gals, and accent your boy's separates with dapper suspenders and a matching bow tie.

At zulily, we like for you to get mileage out of your kids' clothes. For all of these ensembles, trade the fancy footwear for sneakers and they can wear these outfits to the playground well past the Easter egg hunt!

There are many different approaches to Easter attire, and a color-blocked look that embraces orange and a longer Bermuda short with clean, classic slip-ons accomplishes a more casual look. A neutral grey shawl collar sweater by OshKosh B'Gosh gently counterbalances the burst of color.

Tropical florals look so fresh on teenagers with lush and bold blooms, here accented at her waist with a neon green belt.

And for the dressier side of the holiday, consider a blazer and shirt-and-tie set topped with a Rat-pack reminiscent fedora.
