From Canary to buttercup, there's no chance of the sun setting on the yellow dress

Stepping out into the heat may be the last thing you want to do during Dubai's searing summer. But how about adding a little sunshine to your wardrobe?

Take your cues from Hollywood and embrace the new fashion must - the little yellow dress - in every shade from lightest lemon to the richest saffron. Pioneered by a post-split Reese at the 2007 Oscars, and demonstrated so ably by Eva, Nicole and Becky, an LYD can be as sexy as an LBD if you've got the curves (and the colouring) to get away with it.

Prefer the hippy deluxe vibe? Rebecca Gayheart's two-tone maxi nails retro daytime chic with super-cool chocolate brown detailing. So while the sun is out and there's a spring in your step, why not put one into your closet?

Should you wear it?Of course! But choose your shade carefully. Those with dark skin can get away with acid brights, but if you are fairer skinned, stick with buttermilk, vanilla and sherbert lemon, accessorised with caramel - not white! - for a super-classy finish.
