Why We Love Yellow Evening Dresses

Many women feel that they can’t pull of yellow – that it’s just not a good color for them. We disagree! Yellow can be extremely flattering and always looks very fresh, especially when most other women attending the event will choose “safer” colors.

The key is to find the yellow shade that flatters your skin tone. If your skin has warm undertones, so that gold jewelry looks good on you, you should probably go with deep, rich shades of yellow. If your skin has cool undertones, and you feel that silver-toned jewelry looks best on you, go with light, frosty shades of yellow.

Wear warm yellow dresses with gold shoes and jewelry. Frosty yellow will look great with white gold. You can pair any yellow with black evening sandals and a black purse.

Here are our top picks for yellow evening and cocktail dresses.
