Kyrsten Sinema turned heads during a lively State of the Union address on Tuesday for her bright yellow dress. The Arizona Senator has never been shy with fashion, as evident by her Davos style and outfits from other events. But in the sea of dark SOTU suits, her sunny yellow, puff-sleeve wiggle dress stood out and commanded quite a bit of sartorial attention. And there are some very similar versions in retail stores now, like this slim midi dress.
It was a bold choice, sure. But given the winter weather advisories taking down many states across the country right now, maybe a bright dress to usher on spring isn’t the worst option of clothing. If you’re looking for something that blends a little bit more than a voluminous sleeve, here are five yellow dresses anyone can wear anywhere, from a state dinner to happy hour.
Reformation Zya Silk Dress, $328
Sleek column Zya comes in a punchy turmeric shade, or even a pastel blue floral, if you’re still not sure about this whole yellow business. Either way, it’s a stunning event gown.
ASOS Design high neck pleated chevron textured midi dress, $80
Okay, so this one does have puffy sleeves, but is a less intrusive design and with a delicate pleat that makes it totally wearable in daytime. For the details, the price can’t be beat, either.
Lulu’s Castana Mustard Yellow Print Button-Up Dress, $62
This extremely easy daytime dress comes in several floral shades and has a real 1940’s vintage vibe to it. It may be as close to spring time as we’re going to get in early February.
Mac Duggal Pleated Cap Sleeve Satin Midi Gown, $338
A total stunner for nighttime events, the pleats on this chartreuse gown bring a lot of fun to the style, and the belt is a nice high-end touch. All together with this unique shade, it’s a dress that will bring you attention.
Anthropologie Maeve Puff-Sleeve Sweetheart Dress, $180
Anthropologie has dozens of bright spring dresses right now, but this floral midi dress stands out. On the border between yellow and green, with a bright floral pattern, this is fun for day or night, and comes in sizes from 00-petite to 26.
