Yellow is everywhere right now. It’s a shade we’ve long loved, having championed it on numerous occasions in the past and it appears the happiest of colours is back with a bang. With everyone from Amal Clooney, Megan Markle, Kate Middleton and Holly Willoughby sporting the shade, as well as lots of gorgeous RMW bridesmaids, today we’re sharing our edit of need-to-buy yellow frocks. Perfect for your best girls right now, but also making the ideal brightly coloured addition to their occasionwear wardrobe. My personal fave, the Needle & Thread maxi, is described, rather wonderfully, as ‘sunflower’ colour, which truly makes me feel warm inside. But whether you’re after sunflower, mustard, lemon, buttercup or good old sunshine yellow, you’ll find a dress in our edit to suit..
Understandably, yellow can be a scary colour to pull off. It’s bright and bold, and it’s possibly not a shade you’d usually wear. So how to convince your bridesmaids? Well, there’s a shade for everyone, I promise. Paler skin tones should chose a warm yellow or a very subtle pale yellow. Darker skins tones can pull off most variants of yellow, from barely there to shocking neon. Despite popular myth, yellow doesn’t require a tan, it will actually help you to glow, you just need to find a shade that works for you. Our top three bright and beautiful dresses? This Ted Baker Deneese Ruffle Detail Dress is contemporary yet elegant, this Warehouse Tiered Lace Dress is bohemian perfection and this Topshop Ruffle Midi Wrap Dress is fun and flirty.
If you’re after a pastel shade, which let’s face it, will be much easier to coordinate with the rest of your wedding palette, then opt for a softer shade of yellow, think hazy sunshine, lemon mousse and Easter eggs. As always ASOS delivers with these two beauties – the Paper Dolls Off Shoulder Crochet Dress and the Maya Halterneck Sequin Detail Tulle Maxi Dress, simultaneously ticking off three trends in one…sequins, tulle AND yellow.
Mustard / Chartreuse
Mustard is my favourite shade of yellow, it’s warm and rich and tends to suit everyone. I also LOVE that Holly Willoughby has paired it with gold in our gallery above. Anyone else seeing bridesmaids in mustard with gold accessories?! Perfection.
If you’re after a dress with movement, this Needle & Thread Maxi Dress With Ruffle Neck Detail in sunflower is everything. For something a little more understated how about this Fashion Union Button Front Dress? Button down dresses are another huge trend this summer and this one has real laid-back vibes.
For a bold statement, the Phase Eight Cezanna Maxi Dress is slinky and swishy and such an unusual colour. And for something else with texture, but that’s a little easier to wear, we love the Whistles Aina Devore Dress.
