I've Found a Dress That Everyone I Know Will Want for Summer Weddings

I can imagine most of you reading this will be on the same page as me. Weddings, birthdays and hen do invites have officially taken over my summer before it has even begun and there's one thing on my mind: What shall I wear? (Along with the food that will be served and how much cake I can eat before passing out (there's never a maximum in my eyes), that is.) I'll hold my hands up and say that as soon as I get an invite, I automatically think about the outfit—in particular, which dresses I should invest in.

This year, I'm all about puff sleeves. Give me OTT sleeves and I think my summer wardrobe will be complete. There's also one particular colour that's also going to be ruling my wardrobe: yellow.

A long-sleeved midi dress is a surefire win. Keep it sleek and simple just like Marisa and you'll never fail. 

The sunshine shade makes me feel instantly happy. There are so many yellow dresses everywhere from Zara to Ganni to that Self-Portrait print that's basically going viral that it's hard to choose between them all. With so many styles and shades, there's one that'll suit every size, shape, skin tone and budget.

Scroll down to take all the stress out of searching for wedding guest looks. Welcome, yellow dresses…
