Call it the La La Land effect, blame it on the curiosity of introducing a pop of colour when summer rolls around. Whatever the reason, the yellow dress is the sought after talking-point piece of 2017. As seen on Emma Stone in La La Land; Emma Watson in Beauty and The Beast, on the Chloe catwalk and on the red carpet at star studded events. Who knew we all need a ray of sunshine in our wardrobes to make our lives complete. When it comes to a date night ensemble, instead of picking up the little black dress. Try working in yellow for an added glamorous effect.
Of course, it’s not a very safe-friendly look-yellow is, after all, the colour of the jersey at the front of The Tour de France, worn by the leader so it’s easy for the rest of the cyclists to spot them. It’s the colour of daffodils, highlighters, and is basically, a colour that is meant to be seen. How could you wear it, then, without looking like a security guard? The shade is key. Emma Stone’s tea dress is towards the ochre end of yellow. This worked at Chloe too, bringing bite to the frilly mini-dress.
Way back in 2006, the saffron-coloured Vera Wang gown Michelle Williams wore to the Oscars worked perfectly with her colouring. Now, in 2017, the rest of us are realising that a yellow dress is a no-brainer for offering all the wow-factor with none of the hectic effort. For all things sunny and bright, get ready for a sizzling date night. Forget about the stress of not having anything to wear. By pairing a sunflower toned dress, you will impress your date he will call for a second, third, and even forth!
This colour is universally flattering on everyone. This tone is one of those colours that intimidates people to the core. It’s bright as can be and can feel challenging to pull off. Likely the last shade anyone with an attraction to neutrals would reach for, it’s also often overlooked by colour fanatics who instead reach for safer bolds like cobalt or red. The reality, however, is that yellow has the potential to look incredible on everyone-it happens to be a major trend for summer. Pulling it off is a matter of selecting the right shade for your complexion. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, this edit of yellow pieces ahead if filled with date night styles guaranteed to look amazing on you. Check out the new go-to dresses, oh hello, yellow!
