Is this Chloe dress for day or for night? Maybe both. It is very relaxed, but the chiffon fabric makes it a bit dressier. It’s soft and flowy shape is sophisticated..
Gucci is also showing a lemon chiffon dress. This one is a little more difficult to wear, as the design and sizing are childish. I guess this might be one of the reasons the designer for Gucci was replaced a few months ago. Looking forward to seeing what the new one will do.
Alberta Ferretti cuts a beautiful dress in tangerine chiffon. The draping is inticate and graceful. A very flattering dress.
Versace does a sexier lime dress that reads more evening than day. The form-fitting dress is also very flattering with the ayssemtrical draping.
For a bit of fun, add feathers. Feathers are are a key trim this season. The lime dress has a very swinging 60’s vibe, and is a good choice.
There are lots of intricate sundresses in citrus colors this season. Proenza Shouler White label did this dress with the detailed waist.
Cult Gaia created this cotton off the shoulder dress. The bright orange will look very good with a tan.
The contemporary brand Canvas designed this lime ruffled cotton sundress. The slightly lifted waist is also flattering.
The subtle, off the shoulder, knit dress by Stella McCartney is form-fitting but not overwhelming. This too is a day to night option.
Another dress from the Proenza Schouler main collection is clean and lemony. The assymetrical skirt moves well, and updates the look.
Bottega Veneta offers a sleek halter dress also in a citrus color. This dress is also knit. It has a sophisticated ease.
Valentino offers this striking citrus yellow taffeta evening dress. Shirring and puffed sleeves highlight the gentle trapeze shape.
Tailored looks also come in citrus colors. The three-piece cropped suit set from Stella McCartney is modern and colorful.
Altuzarra cuts a suit in bright orange. The woven jacket pairs with a pleated knit skirt for a newer look.
This mixed look, with an open knit in pink, and a shirt and pants in lime is very casual and fresh. Adding a lighter lime bag could be a bit too much.
This outfit is a bit much head to toe. The colors are happy and fun, but the blazer worn with the cropped ruffled top is a bit bizarre. Maybe it would be better to mix the clothing in the above photo with the ones in this photo for a mix and match look.
This outfit from Casablanca has an interesting print. Having the pants and shirt match is a bit too much. Pull the two pieces apart and pair them with solid pieces would make several strong outfits.
Casablanca also offers this knit set too. This works. The pattern and colors are on-trend. A fun young look.
Prints come in citrus colors. This waterprint chiffon easy dress is pared with a denim jacket. It is relaxed and off the cuff dressing.
Staud offers a printed chiffon dress with color gradations. This dress too is a day to night piece. The chiffon print is light and floaty.
Plan C offers this body-con maxi dress in a green flower print. This dress also features draping, this time around the hips. You need a perfect figure to carry this dress off.
If you want to have some fun, look for citrus color dresses with an artistic touch. Looking at all these pieces, it is easy to see that the wonderful bright colors can work in many kinds of looks. From day to night, they are versatile.
