What cocktail dress are you planning to wear for your next cocktail party or semi-formal wedding party? Red, blue, and black are such safe colors that you can’t really go wrong with. But this time, how about making yourself stand out a little bit more by trying a yellow one. I know that it’s not for everyone, so let’s take a look at the different styles of yellow cocktail dresses and see if you can spot a style that works for you.
Off the Shoulder Yellow Cocktail Dress
The off-the-shoulder with yellow is the classic combo that makes you look stylish and beautiful. For the off-the-shoulder to work best, I prefer the whole piece to have very simple and clean cutting like the example above. Try a similar design to make yourself stand out from the crowd, and at the same time, look stylish and minimal.
One Shoulder Yellow Cocktail Dress
I love the one-shoulder design a bit more than the off-the-shoulder one, because sometimes, the less you show, the sexier you are. The imbalance of the one-shoulder design just makes you look more stylish, and works perfectly with the joyful feeling of the yellow color. And for reason, it somehow makes you look slimmer and leaner. You may try this idea especially if you have beautiful shoulders and collarbones.
Backless or Low Back Yellow Cocktail Dress
I have to confess that I am always jealous of women with beautiful skin and perfect curve on their back. If you are one of those, and you don’t mind looking sexy and stealing the spotlight. The low back or backless design is for you. By the way, I personally love the backless design that has a few think strings to lay over the back. I think that makes you look a little more exotic and mysterious.
Yellow Chiffon Cocktail Dress
Chiffon looks elegant. In the previous ideas, I talked about the different cuttings, but don’t forget that texture and fabric can make a lot of difference too. Chiffon yellow dress simply does make you look more more feminine and more attractive to men. The only bad experience I had with chiffon dress if that the make up stain on it is really quite hard to remove, but that’s just me being very careless.
Yellow Floral / Flower Cocktail Dress
Is your next cocktail party in on a beach or by the swimming pool during a day? If the answer is yes, I think I have another good idea for you. Instead of going just yellow, how about adding a little bit more detail to your dress? The graphic of flower on the dress make you look more cheerful and energetic. I am sure that will make you stand out in a summer cocktail party.
Yellow Gold Cocktail Dress
Yellow gold gives you the elegance that will looks especially beautiful at night. Imagine how amazing you will look under the bright light, by the swimming pool. If it’s a daytime cocktail party on the beach, I probably will consider that too formal for the occasion. But I will definitely try a yellow gold one for a night time party.
Long Sleeve Yellow Cocktail Dress

This is definitely not the best for a summer outdoor cocktail party. But, if you want to look more stylish and unique in a indoor or night time party, the long sleeve design will do. I do like having flower lace for a long sleeve dress like the example above. This little bit of details is just the right amount that you want to add to your look. I like to wear a more unique style like this every once in a while to reveal my sense of fashion.
Buttercup Yellow Cocktail Dress
Buttercup yellow dress makes you look young and cute. It usually works better with light or baby yellow. And depends on the exact design, some of the buttercup dresses look vintage and elegant. It better suits for outdoor and day time parties.
Yellow & White Cocktail Dress
When it comes to cocktail dress, yellow does work well when putting together with different colors. Yellow and white is a good example of looking fresh and smart. It works well with yellow top and white bottom. I would say this combination is relative easy to look good with.
Yellow & Black Cocktail Dress
Yellow and black work wonderfully together as well. It’s actually relative hard to find these dresses compared to yellow and white ones. But if you do find one, try it on and see if it fits your style. Black definitely adds a little bit of darkness and power to your look. And after, black usually makes you look slimmer and taller, enough said.
Grey & Yellow Cocktail Dress
Okay, you have seen the black and yellow one and you might think that yellow and grey looks very similar. That’s not true, it gives a totally different feeling. I love the grey and yellow combination, I think it looks stunning. The best part I like about it is that it looks low-key but it looks beautiful. In a party, with a grey and yellow cocktail dress, people just feel that you look a little more casual than most of the people around you but they are just attracted by you.
