Dress Shop: Mellow Yellow

We love all shades of yellow: banana, sunshine, lemon, mustard -- you name it, we'll wear it. So it's no surprise that it's one of our favorite summer shades. A cute yellow summer dress is all a girl needs to stay cool and look hot. Here are some of our favorite styles that are sure to make you sizzle:

Available at Nordstrom, this bold printed empire waist dress is such a fun, sweet look for the warm weather! The dress is casual enough for a summer bbq, but still pretty enough to wear to an outdoor wedding. And if you're wearing it out on a cool summer night, top it off with a white cardigan and a strand of pearls to channel your inner 50s housewife.

This lightweight shirt dress by Volcom is casual and flirty, just like summer love. There's a delicate drawcord at the waist to give it a snug fit, and the straps are optional if you dare to go bare... shouldered, that is. 

Who knew that a giant flower adorning your chest could be so attractive! We both fell in love with this Maggy London piece while dress shopping for a friend's wedding, but we must warn you, it's definitely only for the small chested. But if it fits, oh my! It's such a lovely, unique dress that is part-Greek goddess and and part beach babe, culminating in a fresh and charming look just right for summer weddings. 

And if you love a giant flower, then this taffeta dress by Arden B is right up your style alley. This sweetheart tube dress is very bold and outgoing, but we know you love the attention. When you got it, flaunt it!

We love this two-tone dress by American Apparel, and trust us, it will look much better on you than it does on the floppy hatted model. Grey and yellow are one of our favorite color combinations (but of course you know this already) and is a perfect look for the summer. But a word of caution: you must either have a fabulously tight stomach or a mean pair of spanx to pull this look off without sucking in your tummy all day. But if the dress fits... 

You'll make quite the tasty treat in this brocade lemon yellow sheath dress. We love the eyelet neckline and the piping on the waistline, but most of all we love the color! Plus we think you could definitely sneak this into your work wardrobe by throwing on a blazer and matching pumps. Available at Macy's.
