Instant mood booster (plus how to wear a yellow dress)

Shop this look

We all need a mood booster sometimes… especially on a Monday.  Yellow isn’t just a bright color it’s also an INSTANT mood booster.  The color represents happiness, warmth, cheerfulness, increased mental activity, and increased muscle energy.  (No wonder SoulCycle’s studios are bright yellow!)

How to wear a yellow dress

For a long time I didn’t wear yellow.  I just wasn’t sure how it looked with my blonde hair.  And here’s what I’ve learned… SOLID yellow looks best on people with dark hair. BUT when there’s a print involved, everyone can wear yellow!

Yellow florals for spring 

This dress I’m wearing is a great way to wear yellow without feeling like you’re on display.  Yellow can be so bright that you might want to shy away from it.  That’s why a floral or graphic pattern is the way to go.  Scroll below to see my other yellow floral dress picks…

How to style a yellow floral dress

Since it’s still chilly out, I’m pairing this dress with my favorite leather jacket.  With this this dress being so bright I suggest staying with simple accessories like a solid colored bag and a strappy pair of sandals.  You know how much I love my Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong heels (Looking for these heels that are less?  These black sandals are very similar and under $100.) 

Will you be wearing yellow this spring and summer? 

I think it’s the perfect cheerful addition to any wardrobe and wouldn’t this dress be perfect for wedding season?  Don’t worry, I have a dress guide coming up soon!   Stay tuned…
