Candy colors were made for spring.

Early spring brings cheerful holidays. These holidays spark our annual hallucination that cold temperatures are behind us.

Let's power through the lingering chill by enjoying spring's lively color palette.

4 Modest Outfits for Spring Holidays

Keep reading for 4 candy-colored modest spring outfits. They are perfect for daytime holiday gatherings, as well as baby and bridal showers. Each ensemble includes a sweater for staving off that lingering chill.

I've styled the looks with coordinating and matching separates. Read to the bottom for mix-and-match ideas.

All of the pieces are affordable, and almost all are size inclusive! Let's start with the styling video.

1. Orange poppies with neutrals

Orange poppies bring a punch of color to this pleated chiffon skirt. In bloom from April to June, poppies make a fitting floral for a springtime outfit.

In the photos, I'm wearing a beige slip underneath. Ivory would work even better, as it would match the skirt's lining.

I've pulled the skirt's neutral tones into the beige sweater-knit cropped cardigan. Instead of knotting the front corners, I overlap them and secure with these tiny clear elastics.

2. Dusty lilac with heather gray

This dress is three flirty tiers of delight! It's made of a breezy rayon-blend, and has a knee-length lining. I experimented above with different ways to tie the neckline sash.

The fabric has a lightweight feel that will transition nicely into early summer. When temperatures rise, I'd swap out the cardigan for a lighter weight lace-knit bolero.

If you prefer a monochromatic look, consider this lavender cropped sweater.

3. Lightweight sweater with denim

This is the most casual of the four holiday looks here. It's ideal for an outdoor kids romp among the daffodils. (Don't worry, you can bleach the skirt later.) Stash their little treasures in the skirt's front pockets.

Speaking of children and thus motherhood, this denim pencil skirt has a built-in tummy control panel. As a Mom, I appreciate the thoughtful design.

You can find similar skirt options in my article "5 Modest, Stretch Denim Pencil Skirts."

I've paired the white denim with a lightweight sweater in the shade 'light jade green.' It's a breathable cotton-modal blend.

The green print on the head scarf is a muted complement to the sweater's punchy color. The scarf's plump tassels are a playful touch.

4. Lavender sweater separates

Hat: Betmar / Cardigan: The Drop, sizes XS-3X / Skirt: The Drop, XS-5X / Bag: Humble Chic / Pink silk flowers: Etsy

These matching sweater separates are made of a stretchy, substantial ribbed knit. The nylon-rayon blend has a smooth, dressy-casual texture.

The skirt has one side slit, which I hand-stitched closed. The waistband can sit comfortably at the natural waist (shown above) or at the hips.

This matching camisole completes the set. It's made of the same nylon-rayon blend, and flat (not ribbed) knit for smooth layering.

Mix for more possibilities!

These solid candy colors coordinate beautifully together. When your modest clothes fit and flatter you, it's so much fun to play with different combinations.
