Be honest - Could I get away with yellow?

Sorry about the image quality - really poor I know! But it does show my skin colour well

I want to wear a yellow pencil dress for a wedding in April. Will this suit?

I ask because bright red looks sickly on me... only colours I think I can get away with 100% are navy or purple

Any ideas? Thank you wine

Honestly op I think you could wear a sack and still look beautiful. You are stunningsmile

It looks lovely. I have similar colouring (bit paler) and suit yellow. That more pastel shade is even more flattering, I think.

You will look great in yellow. My sil is very similar and looked fab at a wedding in yellow last year!

pinkie oh gosh, thank you blushflowers

Will buy it with confidence I think!

Got it with lots of money off because no one in their right minds is wearing that thin a material this season fgrin

I think you could probably wear anything and look fabulous but I doubt yellow is your best colour.

I think you could wear just about any colour especially bright colours and will look great. Buy and enjoy wearing it.

Thanks all flowers

I can't wear any colour! I'm of an athletic/toned build but bright red makes me look really bulky and just awful.

Dark red on the other hand suits me lovely.

I don't think anyone can wear any colour but I suppose you can manage to pull most things off
