Eek! It’s so exciting! Summer’s just around the corner. The nights are getting longer and the temps are rising, which means it’s time to break out those shorts, sandals and summer dresses! A new season also means a few new pieces for the wardrobe, and one of this summer season’s biggest trends is the yellow summer dress. Nothing says summer more than this bright and cheery shade. And with yellow associated with freshness, optimism, and joy, you’ll be brightening your mood along with the season.
The Yellow Summer Dress – Maxi
For a sweet, romantic night or those days where the temps are just a little cooler, a maxi length is the length you’ll want. A maxi is an informal, floor or ankle-length dress that can be dressed up for a wedding, or dressed down for a day out running errands. Depending on your height, you can pair a maxi yellow summer dress with either heels or sandals, and on those chillier nights, throw a cardigan or denim jacket over top and you’ll have a complete outfit.

The Yellow Summer Dress – Fit & Flare
Super sweet and light, the fit & flare dress is fitted through the waist and flares out at or just below the hips giving a feel of effortless cool. The cinched waist and flared skirt are universally flattering, giving almost anyone an hourglass shape, which is why this dress style never goes out of style. Pair it with tan sandals and a straw bag and you’re ready for a yummy outdoor brunch date.

The Yellow Summer Dress – Shift
When looking for a simple, comfortable, yellow summer dress, a shift is the perfect wardrobe staple. Calling to mind the looks of the 1960’s, shift dresses are designed with a simple neckline and a straight boxy waist. This style of dress is flattering on almost anyone as it diverts attention away from the tummy area, but also gives room for all those awesome dance moves.

The Yellow Summer Dress – Babydoll
When looking for a short but casual yellow summer dress, look no further than the babydoll. It’s feminine and flirty, and best for someone with a great pair of legs as babydoll dresses typically fall above the knee. These dresses are super flowy with a wide hem, so pair with a great pair of full-coverage undergarments, and only wear on those summer days without a breeze.

The Yellow Summer Dress – Midi
Midi dresses end approximately mid-calf, but preferably end slightly above or below to give the illusion of a longer frock while staying flirty and fun. While this style dress can be flattering on everyone, women, especially petite ladies, should avoid wearing any shoe that is too visually heavy (platforms, boots, to sneakers) and stick to strappy high heels. Also choose midi dresses with smaller overall patterns, or simple lighter fabrics like this yellow summer dress, and avoid color-blocking. It’s an easy, effortless, and cool look.
