And we don’t mean the disease! We’re talking about the bright happy colour that hit the runways this year. And we’re not talking pale, pastel yellows either. The season is all about bold yellows: canary, banana, mustard, meringue and gold! And on the runway, it was worn from head to toe – so this trend is for the very brave! The colour popped up on many runways in long dresses, bold accessories, patterned shorts and feather vests. Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Burberry Prorsum, Sonia Rykiel and other well-known designers showcased the colour in their collections. Celebrities too love the colour: from Lindsay Lohan to Eva Longoria, Rihanna to Megan Fox.
Yellow may seem like a difficult colour to wear but it’s quite flattering on a variety of skin tones. This colour trend lets us break out of our box and have some fun shopping for clothes in the warmer tones of yellow.
This colour can be especially hard to pull off by the boys – so avoid the head to toe full yellow suit (for obvious reasons) but keep in mind that the colour still looks good in small doses. Wear a pair of bright yellow corduroys or a tee, paired with something neutral or even just a pair of bright sneakers. And if you have a fear of wearing bright colours, or if you hate yellow, then just add a small yellow accessory to your look. Try yellow handbags, ballet flats, hair accessories or scarves. You could even just wear yellow nail polish, and if you still hate it, it’ll just come right off!
