I never really attend things like this, but I was invited to a formal lunch with my guy-friend’s family this Sunday and I really don’t know what to wear to such thing. I mean, if it was a dinner then I would just wear a long gown, but for a 1PM lunch? I’m completely lost. It’s going to be in a really fancy restaurant. Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

Probably a nice dress that can be dressed up or down with a cardigan and some medium heels. I wouldn’t go long – maybe knee length, something like that.
This is quite nice – it’s simple yet chic http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=4985666&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208523&parent_categoryId=203984&pageSize=200
You might want a little bolero for covering your shoulders

This is nice too for a more easter floral look: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=5356818&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208523&parent_categoryId=203984&pageSize=200

I like this but it depends how much floral you can handle! http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=5356791&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208523&parent_categoryId=203984&pageSize=200

However, all of this completely depends on the situation. Does your friend have a sister or something like that who will be going, ’cause then you can ask what she will wear :)

Hope this helped!

Oh you’ll definitely love this one: http://www.lulus.com/products/a-fine-friendship-print-dress/49521.html

It reminds me of the Easter eggs! It’s fun, flirty, cute, and sexy. I mean you don’t have to show too much frontal skin just to be sexy, this dress is perfect! :)

This one is a bit more formal than my other ones… I saw it when I was browsing and remembered this post: http://www.monsoon.co.uk/yellow-claire-dress/invt/15326836/?cm_mmc=Email--April--Summer%20of%20Love--Yellow%20Claire%20Dress&cm_cat=1034862&cm_ite=url19&cmlm=emv:1181541903&cmpla=&cmven=Emailvision

Basically, for Easter, you have to wear light colors or florals. Chose a light floawy dress and match it with a cardigan. To a fancy restaurant, don’t wear anything short or provocative ( of course).

You can wear a pretty floral that moves or a sheath. These are classic for Easter. In addition, you can wear a kitten to mid-heel, so as not to be too over the top. Also, wear a cardigan in case it is chilly. I am sure you’ll look fabulous. Trust your instincts

I think Easter calls for a sweet sundress :). since it’s a formal lunch with your friend’s family, I would avoid anything skintight or cut-out. keep it conservative, and bring a nice cardigan. I think the level of formality depends on the fabric of the dress—like, I don’t think stretchy cotton would be appropriate.
