They Call it Mellow Yellow

Yellow may not be the first colour you think of searching for when out shopping, but let’s be honest, it’s more likely to pop out and grab your attention rather than requiring you to hunt it down.  And if you’ve been out and about on the high street over the last couple of weeks you’ll probably have noticed more and more of this vibrant shade peeping through the rails of clothing and shelves of shoes.

We were lucky enough to be treated to some gorgeous sunshine last weekend, granted we’ve returned to rain, but if you want to keep that warm sunny glow about your person yellow is the way to go.

I talk a lot of about key colours, or the colours of the season and am a firm believer in the fact that you can wear whatever you colour you like.  Never think something is off limits just because of skin or hair tone, all that’s needed is to make sure you’re wearing the right shade.  Yellow has a fantastic spectrum with everything from muted mustard, pale pastels and high-vis neons.

I like to wear yellow as a block colour on my bottom half, I just bagged myself a pair of the bright yellow wide leg cropped trousers from Zara (I’ve listed them below), then you can team it with anything on your top half – prints, stripes, lace or more block colours.  Try it as a zingy alternative to your usual jeans or black bottoms and I think you’ll be surprised at how well it works. If you’re not feeling brave enough to go full force just yet, you can add a hint with mouth watering accessories whether that’s shoes, bags, hats or jewellery.

Go on, create your own sunshine till that little yellow ball of fun returns to our skies.
