Apparently Spring has finally sprung (she says as wind and rain batter the windows!) and with it has come the desire to ditch the winter woollies in favour of lighter, brighter pieces. As much as colours like black and grey are year round favourites for me, I am really craving bright colours after what feels like a very long winter. And they don’t come much brighter than yellow!
We saw various shades of yellow pop up recently all over the catwalks at London Fashion Week – you can read all about my top LFW trends here – and it is fast becoming the shade of the season. It is also quickly becoming a celeb favourite with more and more stars donning the shade; Rihanna in mega watt, fur trimmed yellow at the Met Gala last year being the stand out for me! So with the spotlight on yellow, it was only a matter of time before this trickled down to the high street.
Yellow has long held an undeserved reputation for being an unflattering colour for many skin tones, particularly pale Irish skin! Think you can’t wear yellow? Think again because this season there is literally a shade to suit everyone. From pastel lemon to fluoro and mustard, it’s time to embrace this sunshiny hue. Be as bold as you dare with this shade and embrace your inner Big Bird; go for a tonal head to toe look in different shades of yellow. Or for those of you still on the fence, dip your toes into the trend through introducing subtle pops of yellow (think shoes, scarves and bags!).
