D&G Dolce & Gabbana Chain Dress

Every season has an "it" color. It's that one color that managed to make it onto every runway, whether it was the main attraction or just a sideshow. This fall red was the color to have. Those who could rocked it head to toe; those of us who suffer from red phobia found other ways to work the strawberry hue (red shoes were my choice). New season, new it color. For spring, yellow-- in shades ranging from sunshine to marigold-- is the must-have color for your closet. Are you prepared? If you're like me, a thorough inspection of your wardrobe will reveal you're in yellow deficit. Time to rectify the situation before spring fashion hits its stride.
If you can pull it off, try a golden minidress, like this hot Chain Dress from D&G Dolce & Gabbana (right). The combination of the bright yellow color and modern bell shape is super fresh. How can you tell if a particular shade of yellow is right for you? There's no secret formula. Drape the article of clothing across both shoulders, up close to your face, and then carefully examine your face in a mirror in natural light. You'll know right away if the color is flattering or a disaster.
If you're a little shy about wearing a dramatic yellow from head to toe, try the same golden color in a cropped jacket. Cropped jackets, like this one from Rebecca Taylor, are a hot silhouette for spring and a great way to infuse an otherwise basic outfit with a burst of bright color.Rebecca Taylor Linen Crop Jacket
