Nothing says "spring is here" quite like a soft, feminine pink or yellow. If you really want to embrace the season at your next formal occasion, go for a pastel dress that will evoke the freshly blooming flowers of spring.
If you've ever been to the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C., during the springtime, you know that cherry blossoms are one of spring's most gorgeous flowers. They bloom in a soft, pretty pink that you can use as the inspiration for your next formal gown. Plenty of starlets have been seen in the rosy blush of cherry blossom - like Lea Michele and Taylor Swift, who've both sported pink gowns recently.
If pink's a little too traditional for your tastes, let citrus inspire you. From pastel lemons to bright tangerines, nothing says springtime like the cheery, happy hues of orange and yellow.
Of course, if there's one color that's ubiquitous during the springtime, it's green. From the budding leaves on the trees to the freshly-sprouting grass, green is the essence of spring itself, so go for a gown in a gentle lime hue to truly rock the colors of the season.
