If you usually skip past this shade – the fashion equivalent of a slice of sunshine – hear us out. Yellow is the season’s standout color, seen as much on the streets as the catwalk, and with a surprisingly wide-ranging palette, you can make it mellow or choose to shine bright.
How you choose your hue all depends on your skin tone and your interest in turning heads. Bold can indeed be beautiful, but there are plenty of fresher tones around too, like Vanessa Hong’s lemony summer slip or Elizabeth von der Goltz’s ditzy floral design. Still feeling shade-shy? Add some pops of color into a more muted or neutral look, like Olga Karput and Lucia Cuesta.
However high you turn up your brightness levels, wearing yellow is guaranteed to add some sartorial optimism to your wardrobe; expect smiling strangers on the work commute.
