One of my best friends from high school got married a few weekends ago and I had a dress on hand, but at the last minute decided against it. That was because I saw this gorgeous yellow dress and knew I had to have it! See instagram posts here and here.

I would never describe myself as someone who gravitates towards yellow. If you step into my closet, you'll see shades of blue, whites, black, gray, camel, and shades of pink; but there is barely any yellow. However, in the past 6 months, I have been eyeing yellow dresses! Remember this dress? I also just got this gorgeous drop waist dress which is a wonderful yellow hue, too. I think it's such a happy color and I really love it during the summer months. 

The dress I am wearing is definitely elegant and formal. In fact, you could easily dress this up for a formal black tie event. Since the wedding that I went to was cocktail attire, I went very minimal with jewelry and wore casual shoes to dress it down. If it was a more formal event, I would have worn dressier shoes and definitely done a statement earring and bold clutch. The fabric itself is absolutely stunning. It's textured and what really makes the dress a show stopper is the high/low hem. 

As for sizing, it runs true to size. I am wearing a size 4. The boning in the top half of the dress is great and there is no need for a bra with the extra support and clasp in the back. However, the boning is constricting, so I'd suggest sizing up if you want to be able to be much more comfortable. 

If you are not in need of a super formal dress like the one above, I found several more amazing yellow dresses! Do you wear a lot of yellow?

This dress looks amazing on you, Sydney! I don't wear a lot of yellow myself, but I love seeing how people like you style it and accessorize it. I think a cute pair of turquoise earrings makes the dress! Also love that dress from H&M. Can't wait to see it styled on the blog!
