My favorite color is yellow and it happens to be the color of sunshine and cheerfulness. Although it is a bright, eye-catching color, it looks lovely on sun kissed skin and surprisingly complements a lot of different colors from the color wheel. Yellow goes beautifully with blues and grays and looks stunning with red. I remember a couple years ago when Reese Witherspoon wore a short yet sophisticated yellow Nina Ricci dress with red shoes and a red purse. It’s such a fun color, but can be so classic when worn with the right accessories and if the cut of the dress is conservative. When summer comes around it’s hard to avoid buying a fun flirty yellow dress to enjoy the sunset in, or create the sun with its happy mood-setting power.

Speaking of fun and flirty, it can’t get any more fun than the BCBG MAXAZRIA Yellow Halter Dress. This halter dress is very simple and comfortable. It’s the perfect dress to wear when you don’t know what you’re going to be doing, but whatever it is you’ll be looking fab and classic in this stylish number. It’s a “going with the flow” kind of dress and with this particular style you’ll always catch a slight breeze. How could you look anything but extraordinary when wearing yellow? Enough said.

If a halter isn’t what you are looking for, then maybe a more elegant number from Lulu’s will satisfy your yellow dress craving. I absolutely love the “All Greek To Me” dress! It’s a sexy, very classic dress that will be undeniably flattering on most. The top of the dress has a woven bodice with a Grecian-inspired drape of fabric over the scoop neck. This is a dress that will look wonderful on a curvier body because the elasticized waistband allows room to be comfortable and accentuate the assets. The stretchy, yet body hugging dress is fastened with a thick black belt to give it a modern, sexy touch.

Lastly, for those who don’t think yellow can be a mysterious color, this dress will prove you wrong. The mysteriously sexy Elie Tahari Lisette Dress is also tea party appropriate with its embroidered lace inset and cascading ruffles around the v neck. This is a lovely girly dress that makes me melt. The entire dress blends beautifully, everything from the style to the material coincide nicely creating such a feminine dress. It’s sexy but doesn’t reveal much, keeping it a mystery.
