The Find: A Citron Dress for Spring

Chasing color trends always reminds me of that scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda Priestly explains to her young assistant that her cerulean poly-blend sweater she is wearing is the culmination of years of choices by fashion’s elite.  But lately, my wardrobe has drifted away from color and become a sea of black and ivory.

This season, yellow and citron have burst onto the scene like a squeeze of lemon.  From the designer racks at Neiman’s to the mannequins at Ann Taylor, these sunny hues are everywhere.  Here is a bright dress to invite this trend into your closet.

This affordable citron wrap dress with a blouson sleeve is from Banana Republic Factory.  It’s a nice choice for a spring event, like a wedding or a bridal brunch, but can still be worn in fall.  To dress it up, follow the styling in the photo — yellow gold jewels and simple flesh-toned heels.  To dress it down (or wear it in cold weather), pair it with a grey blazer and a snake-print point toe pump.

The dress above also comes in petite.  Plus-size?  Try this Renee C drape shoulder dress for under-$50.

    I’ve been OBSESSED with these colors since the D&G dress Mindy Kaling wore to the Oscars in 2022. It became my mission to find a dress in the color for a wedding for that summer. Alas, I was unable to find one in my price point and I ended up with a blue number (not cerulean). This BR dress is a gorgeous find Abra.
