Ask Belle: Accessorizing a Yellow Dress
May 28, 2014
I love some of the yellow dresses that are being shown for Spring and just purchased this one from Boden, but am struggling with how to accessorize it. I believe it can be dressed up or down, but am at a loss as to what to pair with it. I love your blog and think you have a wonderful fashion sense, so any suggestions would be much appreciated!
That is a really cute summer dress. The lemon-yellow color is so perfect for the warm weather months. How about a Two Ways to get you going?
As you mentioned, this is a great look to dress up or dress down. For this set, I chose to do just that. The left side uses a flat sandal and a wide belt to bring the dress down a bit. I also added the green earrings for a bit of color. And this bracelet stack is a phenomenal buy at $35 plus NY & Co.’s frequent sales and discounts.
For the dressier look, I chose a lapis earring with a short drop. I like the mix of yellow and cobalt blue. I put it with a cork clutch for summer, but if you’d like to bring in some leopard, I like this Minkoff Leo Pouch.
Yellow is a great color to wear on days when you need a pick-me-up. Try it with shades of blue and green for an easy look. You can also mix it with neutrals or metallics.
