No matter what your age, whether your preppy, classic, sporty, daring or bold, you can find a citrus print to suit your fashion style. Not only do they look great in this seasons skirts and dresses but citrus fruits make great center pieces, especially for summer parties. I often use lemons and limes in vases as they bring a lot of color to the table and are an easy center piece to create.
Designer Stella McCartney was a big hit on the runway when she flaunted her citrus designs. Yellow is the hot color for this seasons fashions and interiors. Various shades flaunt the runway but one of the most popular is a citrus yellow that is airy and light. Have a look at my interior blog to get ideas on how to use yellow in decorating.
