Let’s face it, Blake Lively (Serena) doesn’t have to do much to stand out in a crowd. But when the Gossip Girl star paired a bright orange Gucci dress and leopard print Christian Louboutin pumps for the 2011 Teen Choice Awards, we’re sure she managed to make even the least style-conscious of onlookers do a double (maybe even a triple) take.
Seeking a bit of that “wow” factor ourselves — without looking like a walking piece of produce — we started to look for similar bold citrus-hued dresses. Our findings: Pretty much any bright color worn in the form of a short and sweet dress makes for a knockout combination.
