What to Wear With a Yellow Maternity Dress
Not going to lie, yellow is a bold color! It grabs attention, but don’t let this stop you from wearing it. You should note that yellow is also universally flattering on all complexions AND it makes everyone around you (including yourself!) feel happier.
Maybe you’ve used yellow to accessorize or accent other colors. Since it’s a striking hue, wearing yellow on its own can be a bit intimidating. If you want to tone it down (or go with a “two-tone” look), pair yellow with neutral colors like:
Navy blazers and denim jackets always look fabulous over a mustard yellow maternity dress. You can also opt for a brown leather jacket. It’s super easy to find coats in these neutral tones, so your options are abundant.
This is the big question of the hour. The shoes you pair with your dress greatly influence your statement and aesthetic. Fortunately, this choice is not as complicated or difficult as some make it seem! Here’s all you need to know to get your shoe game on point:
- For a maxi maternity dress: This long yellow sundress goes best with sneakers, sandals, or a low, open-toe heel. We love the look of plain white sneakers with a mustard maternity dress!
- For a bodycon maternity dress: This dress goes best with wedged sandals or heels. You can also do sneakers, low-heel boots, or pumps. Please watch your step if you choose a pump with a high heel! Our recommendation is anything brown, tan, and wedged.
- For a midi maternity dress: The same shoe rules for the bodycon dress apply here, with the addition of flats and strappy sandals. In fact, strappy sandals and heels (brown, black, or white) are our fav with a midi mustard maternity dress!
As a side note, if you want your yellow dress to be the main focus of your look, it’s best to opt for shoes in a nude tone that’s close to your natural skin color. This draws attention away from your feet and brings it back to your yellow maternity dress!
Yellow plays well with metallic, shiny things; that’s another reason this color is so fun! A mustard yellow maternity dress can look gorgeous with either gold, silver, or rose gold metals.
As we mentioned before, it’s always safe to pair your dress with pieces that have a neutral color, like black, beige, or white. If you want to play it up, you can rock blue, green, or red pieces with your mustard maternity dress! These three colors will look gorgeous against yellow.
Once you have your necklace chosen, your wedges strapped, and your blazer ready to go, your yellow dress is all styled! You’re ready to spread your happy new mother vibes to the rest of the world. Honestly, we should be thanking you for making the day a bit brighter. Go out and wear your yellow with confidence!
