Style Dilemma: Where can I find a yellow dress like Laura Whitmore's?

Laura Whitmore was pictured looking stunning in a yellow dress at an event recently. Now Laura’s was some designer number but I’d love to know where to find something on the high street, on a student’s budget? Clodagh (23), Dublin

From light and creamy to the not so mellow, expect to see the full spectrum of yellow on the high street, from citrus tones to pastels and neon this season.

Jenny Packham, Stella McCartney and Carolina Herrera were among the designers to embrace yellow for Spring-Summer/13.

The ‘Julia' (1 €16) at Boohoo.com comes in an intense mustard shade. This sleeveless dress with box pleated skater skirt is fun, girly and affordable.

Penneys has a Simone Rocha-influenced jacquard shift in pale lemon (2 €21), while the Boohoo.com floral printed ‘Mia' dress on a yellow base (3 €28) has a real vintage quality to it.

If the idea of wearing fullon yellow doesn't appeal to your sartorial taste buds, touch on the trend through accessories. H&M has a yellow vest top with scalloped edge (€19.95), while A|wear's soft yellow blazer with turned up sleeves (€50) will brighten up a simple skinny jeans and T-shirt combo for a fresh Saturday afternoon outfit. New Look's fluro yellow metal chain with gold triangles (4 €8.99) will bring that little black dress up to date.

Oasis has taken its lead from the phenomenally successful Cambridge Satchel Company by giving the classic schoolboy bag a contemporary yellow twist (5 €44).
