The colour of the moment is yellow, whether it’s a pale pastel yellow or bright canary yellow, it’s the hottest shade to be seen in. We love it because it’s bright and cheerful and surprisingly, it suits most skin tones, you just have the find the right shade. This colour trend covers accessories, shoes, swimwear and handbags. Dresses can have a great impact too especially when worn in a braver shade of yellow. It makes a refreshing change from the dark colours we have been wearing over winter and if you’re one of those women who wishes to have more colours in their wardrobe then yellow would be a bright and bold place to start.
Yellow fever hit the catwalk earlier this year when designers show cased their Spring/Summer 2010 collections, Amanda Wakeley’s collection featured a canary yellow draped dress which was flattering and feminine but had an edge because of its colour and would really make you stand out in a crowd. Dannii Minogue is a fan of yellow as she wore a Lisa Ho Grecian style dress in yellow at the recent Elle Style awards. It can be difficult however, to match other colours to such a bright base colour. Avoid white, it isn’t very modern. Instead team your yellow with metallic accessories and killer heels. Or if you’re feeling brave wear with a print, a subtle hint of leopard, zebra or a statement graphic print is very now.
Overall, it’s an uplifting colour and therefore an uplifting trend. It has been said that yellow can have a positive effect on mood and is just what we need this time of year to pick us up and get us ready for summer. So if you haven’t got anything yellow in your wardrobe, we suggest you go shopping and get a little a piece of sunshine for yourself!
