From the Spring-Summer 2018 runways to Oscar’s red carpet, yellow dresses have been the center of attention the past few months and I for one am totally okay with it! At first glance, the idea of wearing a shade of yellow head to toe is something that sets alarm bells ringing but from Greta Gerwig to Rihanna, and from Gigi Hadid to Emma Stone, there are so many ladies showing us how to wear the hue, the right way.
Cue a new color obsession and a wardrobe revamp for the Summer! Yes, I am talking about trendy yellow dresses that can easily make any lady look special and individual. In today’s blog post I will try my best describing the best styles you can try in 2018.
SUNSET STYLES FOR THE BEACH
The easiest of ways to add this wondrous shade into your wardrobe is by also adding it into your suitcase. My holiday wardrobe is always so much brighter than my everyday shades, so adding a vibrant, honey yellow, was a lot less daunting knowing it would be pictured near a white sandy beach and a beautiful blue ocean. To combat the heat I knew I wanted a lightweight material, that wasn’t overly structured and I pictured a long maxi style with sweet, ruffle details to encompass island life. I definitely found it in this Lazul style and can’t wait to wear this again. Think straw bags, bare feet, and minimal accessories, to let the dress shine brightly.
YELLOW FOR THE RED CARPET
We’ve seen so many incredible, inspirational women taking so many different aspects of life by storm recently and a multitude of them have been doing it wearing the color of the season- yellow. From fitted, fluted gowns through to flowing, statement dresses, there’s been a plethora of inspiration on how to take this stand out shade from day to evening. Think true yellow shades that are enhanced by statement jewelry, metallic accessories and make you feel like you could conquer the world – because you can!
BRING SOME SUNSHINE TO THE OFFICE
Let me start this by saying I am fully aware there are a lot of people who may not be able to get away with such a bold color at their place of work. Many may have strict uniform standards and many may work in environments that require more muted clothing choices. However, if you do work in a more creative setting or with less strict workwear rules, then there are plenty of styles and ways to suit you, in shades from marigold to pastel to the canary. Think belted silhouettes, enhanced by sharp blazers, killer heels or even your favorite leather jacket and commit to bringing a little fun into your office space this Summer.
THE BEST DRESSES FOR BRUNCH
You can take Greta Gerwig’s lead and stun in yellow for an evening event or perhaps you just want to work the color into a more everyday occasion. Shopping with friends, heading home to see your parents or my personal favorite of course – a weekend brunch. There are so many ways you could fit a yellow dress for your casual weekend look, that the world is very much your oyster when it comes to shade, length, and style. Think a bleached denim jacket thrown over your shoulders, a tasseled cross body bag, and some chunky ankle boots to create some edge.
What Color Shoes to Wear with a Yellow Dress?
If you haven’t heard, yellow is the trending new color of 2018. With it’s fun, sunny disposition, it’s no surprise that fashionistas this season are turning into yellow. And if you’re curious about what color shoes to wear with a yellow dress or outfit and what purse you should style right along with it, you’ve come to the right place!
I’ve done my best to feature a multitude of yellow shades & dresses so you can easily scan this post & see if the shoe color I’ve recommended applies to your specific styling situation.
Other accessories apart from shoes will play a big role in the overall look. You can opt to style a yellow dress with neutral accessories such as black or beige or have a little fun with this sunny color. In terms of jewelry, pick a metal base (be it gold, rose gold or silver) and be consistent in your choice of rings, necklace, bracelet etc.
Colors that match with yellow outfits are plentiful, from pastels, colorful brights, even metallics & multi-color prints. In the end, it all depends on the style & design of your dress, as well as what type of event you’re attending. And last, but certainly not least, what you feel most comfortable in.
