So the colder weather has snuck up on us here in the UK, and I think we are all guilty of packing away our brightly coloured clothes and replacing them with dull, dreary shades of blacks, greys and browns. Although an all black look can be super classy, I love the idea of a colour pop, and in this case the gorgeous hues of yellow come to mind, because it helps bring an element of sunshine to a dreary winter’s day!
Adding a splash of yellow to an outfit can not only brighten it up but also adds a carefree, fun outlook on how you dress. For example, the looks at Betsey Johnson embraced the colour yellow, by mixing it with other brights like blue and pink. If you go for such a bright yellow shade, do not shy away but instead make sure you ooze confidence, just like the models at Betsey Johnson. The best thing about such a bold look is that it allows you to experiment and stand out amongst a crowd full of grey dreary colours.
With this said, you do not necessarily have to choose such a bold yellow shade and instead could take inspiration from the Ellie Saab show, where a more subdued yellow tone was used. A much more feminine look can be achieved when combined with lace dresses, embroidery and silk skirts for an elegant take on the sunny yellow trend. It is not bold like at Betsey Johnson, but instead pretty and feminine for those of us who maybe aren’t as experimental with bright colours.
Still finding it difficult to part with your beloved black winter pieces? Why not combine them with a dash of yellow for an edgier look? For example, Michael Kors combined a darker yellow shade with black to create a sports luxe inspired collection that looked amazing!
And if you’re still feeling shy then why not go for a yellow accessory, like the handbags shown at Chloe, that will make a great contrast against almost any colour, be it a winter grey or a bold pink.
