Colorful is the word for spring dresses, and it’s not surprising since we are coming out of a year-long pandemic that has had all of us in the doldrums. Nothing brightens our day more than a lovely dress in a flattering shade, perhaps with a swing in the skirt that sways as we walk. And fortunately, with lockdowns soon in the rearview mirror, there will be lots of places to wear them.
Your color choices abound, starting with Pantone’s Color of the Year 2021 “illuminating,” a bright yellow hue that is meant to evoke hope and optimism after the tumultuous year. However, yellow is not a color that looks good on everyone, and fortunately, there are lots of other options equally fresh and spring-like. Lilac has emerged as a favorite of designers at every price point and is a shade that most women find flattering. Burnt coral, mint green, and fuchsia are all colors you will see as a stand-alone or in a rich print.
While there are many dress choices in solid colors, look for fantasy florals, fruit stripes in bold colors of the rainbow, watercolors, and paisley. This spring is not a time to go subtle in your attire. In fact, if you are looking to add only one new garment to your spring/summer wardrobe, make it a memorable dress! Here are our top dresses for women over 50.
