Lost Without You Dress ($143) by Keepsake
Why we love it: The yellow fabric immediately catches the eye, the cut-outs add a subtly sexy element, and the ruffles along the neckline give it a girly twist.
What to pair it with: If you want a sandal, look for something strappy, preferably in a metallic pewter hue. If you want a pump, try a neutral nude hue.

Tiered Strapless Dress ($375) by Shoshanna
