Move aside, florals, Meghan Markle just introduced us to the most mood-boosting print of the upcoming warm-weather season: lemons

On February 22, Markle and Prince Harry stepped out for their first (virtual) appearance since announcing they are expecting their second child on February 14. The couple made a surprise cameo during Spotify's Stream On event on Monday looking as stylish as ever. Prince Harry went with a classic white button-up and navy-blue trousers, while Markle wore a lemon-print Oscar de la Renta dress you can't help but smile at.

Though they'll always be a classic, florals for spring can sometimes feel stale and boring. A sweeter, more whimsical spring pattern, like the one Markle wore, is enough to inject a fresh bit of spring cheer into any look. Lemons (and the color yellow) conjure up happy thoughts, and that's something we can all use more of right now, which is why we're expecting a huge surge in sale of lemon-print pieces.

Markle's Oscar de la Renta number certainly costs a pretty penny, going for a cool $3,490. The '60s-inspired shift dress has a classic, peplum hem, a round neckline, and a lovely lemon motif throughout, and though a few sizes of her exact dress are still available here, its price might make you a little more hesitant to add to cart. Good thing there are plenty of lookalikes for less.
