Sabrina Carpenter Wore the Butter-Yellow Dress Trend in the Chicest Way


2024 has been a colossal year for Sabrina Carpenter. Having performed at Coachella, on SNL and as an opening act for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour (amongst many other recent accolades), the singer’s year is going very well. Naturally, as one of the year’s biggest breakout stars, it feels like a given that she’s also in tune with the season’s breakthrough trends. Having curated a wardrobe brimming with platform heels, playful minidresses and pretty pastel colours, yesterday, the singer stepped out in an ensemble that encapsulated her style so well.

Wearing a butter-yellow minidress adorned with four front pockets and an elegant lapel, Carpenter picked up on the rising colour trend that’s been taking over my Instagram feed over the past few weeks. The soft shade of pale yellow has quickly become a go-to amongst fashion editors and stylists for its elevated take on a neutral tone. More interesting than cream or beige, the butter-yellow trend adds a summery twist without overwhelming a look. Having already experimented with the sunshine shade—Carpenter wore an Andie Anderson-inspired minidress to her birthday celebrations last month—her recent buttery styling affirms that the colour is one of the most important in her summer rotation.

Wearing hers with a small white bag and white platform heels (of course), Carpenter played into the light and fresh energy of the trending colour. Whilst this colour combination felt both pretty and playful, I’ve also seen the butter-yellow shade look supremely chic when styled with richer shades including brown and burgundy.
