All Things Bright and Yellow

There is a short story I compiled on colours, I'll start off this week with the colour YELLOW. And that's why I've titled this post: All Things Bright and Yellow: How to Wear Yellow Right this Season

Bring a ray of sunshine to your summer wardrobe with some warm, bright yellow. The spring/summer catwalks were awash with this vibrant shade. There are many different shades of yellow, ranging from ice-cream yellow pastels to warmer mustard tones.

To make the colour work for you, it's important to pick the right shade for your skin tone.
The colour works best teamed with creams, beiges and khakis. So pair a sunflower shirt with pale wash jeans, or a buttercup yellow jacket with a khaki safari skirt and a nude top.

For a bolder look, you could wear it with navy for nautical style, or black and white. Accessorise with gold jewellery - chunky bangles and chains work well - then add brown, taupe or cream bags and shoes to finish.

If wearing such a bright colour scares you, then start with an accessory – pumps, a vibrant watch or a tote bag.
