Summer's definitely starting to rear its lovely little head. Ok so our current weather conditions don't 100% agree with that statement, what with the rainy foggy London skies happening here in NYC. But I do have faint memories of sweltering heat and pool side afternoons that will hopefully be making their way back to us soon. And what goes better with sweltering heat than a nice burst of lemon limey freshness. Seems that bright yellow has made its way onto Hollywood red carpets as the it color of the season. It also goes with the hopefully constant return to the early 90s.
We first caught wind of this color trend when Whitney Port, who yes I unfortunately must refer to as a fashionista, chose a draped Rachel Roy dress in a bright shade of super sunny yellow for the NYLON Young Hollywood party.
Then it was SJP's turn in a flowing asymmetrical Valentino number at the SATC 2 premiere. Hers definitely had a more lime than lemon undertone to it, and combined with her very blonde wavy hair it made for summer personified.
Scarlett followed suit with a more citified version of the trend. The very modern oh so cool sophisticated mini was the work of non other than our favorite Brits, Preen. Ruching, one shoulder, body con mini...the makings of an unbelievably perfect dress. And their version of lemon lime is so on point and wearable it almost makes me want to switch every item in my closet and replace it with just this dress.
How do you guys feel about the return to citrus?
