Celebrity Fashion Trend: Yellow Dresses

They call it Mellow Yellow…Quite Rightly!

The ‘Yellow Trend’ has taken off, and it’s just in time for the summer. So much so, that the self-proclaimed ‘world-renowned authority’ on colour, Pantone has named one of its newest shades ‘Minion Yellow’ after the much-loved ‘Despicable me’ characters.

Predicted by Fashion weeks of Autumn and Winter passed, the trend crept in during the mid-Winter months using the Golden Globes and Oscars as a prelude for what’s to come.

And sure enough, every item from Winter Raincoats to Summery Stilettos has a touch of Yellow; however it seems that ‘the Dress’ has stepped out and shone the brightest. This pop of colour is the much needed vitamin that fashionistas all over, need for the months ahead.

Now, I know what you’re thinking ‘No, I can’t wear Yellow! It doesn’t suit me.’ Do not fear, because below are 6 ways for you to pull off the Yellow Trend look.

 

  1. Lighten Up

If you are extremely apprehensive about stepping out with Yellow, start with a paler tone such as primrose, eggshell or butter. This allows you the satisfaction of dipping your toe in the water before actually diving in. Also, if you find that you are of a paler tone in general, this would probably be best as it would complement your features and is less likely to clash. As for styles, it would be best to stick with vintage 50/60s shift, embroidered or embellished flowing maxi styles.

2.  Take it up a Notch

Once you’ve gained some confidence, you can graduate to bolder yellows! Bright, sunshine and lemon Yellows, particularly on Jersey style dresses reflect and shimmer in the Sun. Coupled with wrap or draped textures, this attracts attention to the illusion of movement on the dress and your boost in confidence *wink wink*. You can’t go wrong!

3.  Mix it up

So now we have a grip on some staple yellow tones, we have the confidence to mix and match. Pairing black with yellow, brings some contrast to the look and breaks up the boldness of the tone. This Look would particularly suit you if you have dark hair and eyes. Try bandeau or halter neck maxis with a colour block look and sandals. Alternatively, you can match a wide waist belt and wedges for that perfect day to night look!

4.  Borderline Lime

This takes not only takes confidence, but a big gulp of bravery. You guessed it, Yellow so bright it’s almost lime…or orange. That’s right! You were born to wear daringly, bold tones. There’s no correct way to wear this look, just go for it!

5.  Blissful Prints

Prints are a great alternative to solid of block colour patterns. Furthermore, they provide the flexibility of a more traditional solid colour underneath a bold and distinguishable pattern. Jersey or chiffon textures would help lift the pattern, whilst also complementing the shape of the dress. Although anyone could pull off patterns, those with a cooler complexion would serve this look just what’s needed.

6.  Go for Gold

If you are thinking by now ‘I don’t fit into any of these ‘, don’t worry. You most likely have soft features or there is not much distinction between your hair, eyes and skin tone; which means that you kind of blend in. Here’s the remedy, Gold. Yes, this precious metal hue is great at embracing complementary tones and attracting the attention to your figure. This look is especially great for Evening gowns and cocktail dresses.
