    I’ll Have What She’s Having: Sunny yellow that looks chic and not like a box of Peeps gone wrong

    Personally, I’m usually not a fan of one of  BIGGEST trend colors this season. Yet, I LOVE how this plunging V yellow dress looks on Italian actress Marta Gastini at Cannes earlier this week that I just may be a color convert.

    Sunny yellow that’s oh so pretty and bright as a shade is often disastrous against your skin color and impossible to accessorize– the very reasons why I usually shy away from suggesting bright yellow.

    Let’s review styling tips on how to wear yellow right…

    • First off, the line of the dress is clean and structured; not flouncey that can look juvenile or slinky that can look slutty.
    • The deep plunging neckline shows just enough skin to keep the dress open and not have the bright color overpower her pale complexion.
    • Now, what a fantastic necklace she is wearing!  Bold metallic discs both fill the plunging neckline so it is no longer daring while adding a pleasant burst of texture via its finish. The necklace’s black accents work beautiful with her hair color.
    •  Adding  natural luggage-toned platform sandals and a clutch bag keeps the styling effortless and far more chic than wearing white (please NO), matchy-matchy yellow, or distracting black.

    How about some of these brighter than mellow, yellow dresses and metal disc necklaces?
