Dress of the Day: Lydia cotton cady dress from J Crew

Hot Pink Prom Dress
Despite yesterday’s advice to work the “bright colours” trend one bright colour at a time, we love the way J. Crew have paired this fuchsia dress with bright yellow sandals: in fact, it’s making us re-think our natural horror of brights altogether. Dresses-with-pockets are something that didn’t quite appeal to us when they first started cropping up, and we’re still not keen on pocketed wedding gowns, but the pockets on J. Crew’s ‘Lydia’ dress are cute, and help to dress the look down a little. This is also available in yellow and orange as well as black and brown, so you can be as bright or as toned down as you like.
