Why don’t more people wear yellow? OK, scratch that. Yellow definitely isn’t the color for everyone. However, when it does suit you, you should take full advantage because you are one of the chosen few! Think yellow is only for fun and can’t be interpreted any other way? These celebs show us how merely a change in the hemline and neckline can evoke different vibes from the vivacious color.
Style Inspiration – Wearing Yellow Dress with Varying Lengths the Celeb Way
Elegant Karina Smirnoff

The tea length skirt has a way of imparting a very sophisticated vibe, no? Just like a bunch of English ladies who are, well, going to tea. And no, the fact that Karina Smirnoff’s dress was yellow didn’t take away from the elegance at all. It did, however, infuse a contemporary vibe to the look in addition to a summery and altogether cheerful one.
Formal Liz McClarnon

Chic, no-nonsense but also slightly sassy, Liz McClarnon’s buttercup yellow snug number is something you covet on sight. But what are those things on her feet? A definite no-no – too heavy, too cloggy, too yech for this look. But the hair, makeup, belt, smile and pose – that’s all top notch.
Playful Nazaneen Ghaffar and Tanya Burr

Now this one wasn’t hard to pull off at all! Pretty Nazaneen Ghaffar sported a light yellow layered ruffle dress which looked just right for the red carpet but had plenty of youthfulness and mischief in it as well. Loving the black peep-toes and the over-sized patent clutch she toted with the ensemble. Black is a nice safe go-to for accessorizing yellow.

OK, granted no one has ever used any other word to describe this hot momma. But it is what it is and her outfit just reinforces that vibe.
