I have several swing dresses from the Eva Mendes for New York & Company line. The “Sabrina” dress appears in new colors with every collection, and it’s a real favorite of mine.
In addition to the red and yellow versions featured here today, I also have this style dress in black and leopard print. I RARELY buy multiples of the same style, but I just love the comfortable shape of these dresses.
The yellow version is my favorite of the four. The pretty bold hue looks great with a variety of neutrals and other colors. Yellow gets a bad rap as a color that is hard to wear, but it’s all about finding the right shade for you. The saffron color works for my skin tone, but a lemon, banana, canary, or mustard may work better for you.
I find these dresses surprisingly versatile, and I just love the way they look on their own or paired with tights and jackets for colder weather.
Here are some of the ways I’ve styled these bright swing dresses:

|Color and Confidence: Yellow|
Mixing Red & Gold/Yellow

For Work With Neutrals and a Structured Blazer

Swing dresses get a bad wrap because they can be a little shapeless. This style isn’t a dress to show off your curves, but it is super comfortable and easy for a range of situations. One is a bold color makes it that much more of a fashion favorite!
