18 of the best sunny yellow dresses to welcome the warmer weather

It looks like the sunshine is here to stay, and we couldn’t be happier to feel its warmth. After months of staying indoors, lockdown restrictions are slowly but surely relaxing, and we’re now allowed to enjoy socialising outdoors with up to six of our nearest and dearest – ideal timing for basking in those rising temperatures.

The best way to welcome the rays? With an equally bright and beautiful outfit – like the one Holly Willoughby just debuted on This Morning, from her go-to fashion brand Ghost.

Holly’s dress was a cheery ditsy print with an oversized Peter Pan collar, perfect for her on-screen appearance, but yellow dresses of all shapes and sizes are all over our favourite retailers’ websites right now.

From deep ochre and mustard blocking to buttermilk pastels, florals and stripes, there’s never been so many ways to get mellow in yellow, and the majority of these pieces are made from breezy fabrics that will keep you looking and feeling cool too.

Whether you want sleeves and tiered hems, an on-trend oversized silhouette, or a casual sundress you can throw on for sunbathing in the garden, here are the best styles to shop right now, along with Holly’s original. Here comes the sun!
