Actress Julia Louis Dreyfus is getting into the spring spirit with this bold hue while strutting the streets of the New York City. With minimal accessories she lets her bright yellow dress do all the talking. Now is the time to start putting away your tones of olive, burgundy and plum and start wearing bright colors! With a look like this one you will be reaching for every fuschia, marigold and aquamarine dress you can find!
The Julia Louis Dreyfus Bright Yellow Dress
The long sleeves and the midi length makes Julia Louis Dreyfus’ dress an ultimate go-to for any cocktail occasion. We found her gorgeous Escada dress at Neiman Marcus, and it is well worth the investment.
The Copycat Bright Yellow Dress
However, we found another option so you can steal her style for much less. This T Tahari dress is only $76.88. It has cap sleeves and is a sheath style, which makes it ideal to wear from the office to cocktails. The neckline can be unzipped to give it the same keyhole effect as on Julia Louis Dreyfus’ Escada dress.
The Black Overcoat
Sometimes the warmer days lead to cooler nights, so bring along this zip trench coat available at Express. I love how easy this piece is to wear. This coat is perfect for dressed-up occasions, or to throw on over jeans. The draping in the front gives it a classic silhouette and the zipper detailing addes a little something special.
The Black Pumps
When you are wearing a bold colored dress, keep your accessories very clean and basic. These pointed toe pumps from Aldo are a classic and a very close match to our celebrity’s black shoes.
The thing I love most about Julia Louis Dreyfus’ look is the belted waist. Without the belt the dress seems to lack something, but belted it gives her a great shape. Get the same look with this black faux leather stretch belt from Nordstrom. A stretch belt works best for a dress. Besides being more comfortable, it will fit your waist snugly, it won’t slip around and it will stay put.
Add a touch of bling with these New York & Company black and goldtone earrings. They have an interesting Art Deco inspired geometric shape!
Grab this white bag from Topshop to finish off the look. A white bag in the spring/summer is a must! It brightens up any outfit and the crocodile texture makes it look very sleek and modern.
With this look you will bring the sunshine to your next event!
Styling Tips: How To Wear A Bright Yellow Dress
1. We love this look on Julia Louis Dreyfus. With her dark hair and skin tone, she looks stunning in yellow. You probably can wear yellow, too, if you choose the right shade. We see how well the color works on most brunettes, but if you are fair and have lighter colored hair a brighter, warmer shade like Dreyfus’ dress may work for you, too. Some yellows have too much green in them or are so light you may look washed out. Therefore make sure the yellow contrasts with your skin tone when choosing a shade of yellow.
2. If you don’t like yellow, you can steal this entire look based on a another bright color for your dress. You can choose a vibrant shade that contrasts well with black such as fuschia, marigold, aquamarine, magenta, teal, cobalt, red, watermelon, orange or lime green. Pick your favorite fruit color.
3. This look is perfect for a business cocktail party or social event. If you are going to the office first, tote along the pumps, earrings and white handbag. Slip into the pumps, grab the mini bag and put on the earrings before you leave for the party!
