This time last year, much of the world was hunkering down indoors but as lockdown rules begin to ease across the UK, we can look forward to feeling the spring sunshine on our faces once again. From picnics in the park to ice-cold beverages in pub beer gardens and the first overdone hot dog of the year, it's all about getting into the spring spirit.
Having a major clear-out and cleaning everything in sight might be at the top of your springtime agenda but one of the best ways to welcome in the new season is through your wardrobe, specifically the addition of a sunny yellow dress. Whether it's a puff-sleeved mini or a flowing maxi, a yellow dress has the power to instantly brighten your clothing rail – as well as your mood.
From chartreuse to lemon, yellow is one of the most joy-inducing statement shades you can wear (which, after a year of lumpy loungewear, is exactly what we're looking for right now). Thankfully, the shops are chock-a-block with mood-boosting frocks, meaning now is the perfect time to introduce a yellow dress into your wardrobe. And there's a style to suit everyone, whether you're a gingham girl or prefer a simple slip.
