Designers must have taken an extra dose of Vitamin C this spring, because citrus hues are everywhere. From Marc Jacobs to Prabal Gurung, shades ranging from soft pink to burnt orange are all rage.

As usual, our favorite Upper East Siders are right on trend. Raina (Tika Sumpter), Charlie (Kaylee DeFer), Lily (Kelly Rutherford) — even Blair’s minions — all wore citrus hues in Season 4, Episode 19: “Petty in Pink.”

Not convinced that peach is the new black? Then try subtly adding the trend to your wardrobe via a mandarin or grapefruit-colored leather accessory (Serena sported a lovely yellow bucket bag in this episode.) You’ll be amazed how a pop of color lends sophistication to your ensemble — and lifts the spirits, too!
