If we had to sum up ‘the’ colour on the high street this summer, in the words of Coldplay, ‘it was all yellow’. There’s no denying that yellow is the ultimate summery and happy colour, but when it comes to wearing yellow clothes, for many of us, it is a no-go area. For a few fortunate people (Gemma) yellow lifts and brightens their complexion and for others (Bertie) it makes them look sicker than a mum after a night out on the gin cocktails. If you’re in the latter group then there’s no need to avoid yellow entirely. Find the right tone (avoid mustards and try going for a more acid tone if you have a sallow complexion for example) or wear yellow away from your face via a skirt, trousers or accessories. If you’re super yellow-shy just a splash of sunshine via a bag or earrings to transform an outfit.
Yellow looks great with grey, khaki, white, denim, leopard print and, our favourite, stripes!
