From fashion weeks to fashion bloggers, the colour that is trending on the catwalk and online this season is yellow. Mustard, bright sunshine, buttercup, you name it; these colours are fizzing on the fashion scene like a sherbet lemon.
This happy colour may not be the perfect harmony for everyone - such a bold colour doesn’t lend itself to everyone’s complexion. Rather than getting caught up with skin tone matches Little Dot has five tips for mamas wanting to introduce yellow into outfits.
Let accessories pop it!
If a subtle nod to this cheery sunny shade is what you’re after then a necklace, bracelet, or bag is an easy way to wear it. If you have a teething baby then this super-stylish yellow necklace by www.nibbling.co.uk will show you’re in the sunshine state. If you’re free from chewy mouths, this cute necklace by @BeadBoxJewellery (found on Etsy.co.uk) is an understated way to style this key shade.
Putting your best foot forward
Shoe shops are brimming with new colours including this spring staple that is guaranteed to brighten up any outfit. Show your sporty side with these mustard trainers from Nike, or go for the timeless trendy converse in lemon yellow. If you’re looking for killer heels for a special occasion these shoes from www.shopstyle.co.uk will show you mean business.
Never has it been more in-style to have a slogan slapped across your chest than this season. Tick both boxes and embrace the sports-luxe trend while showing your love for yellow with the Little Dot Company ‘Sleep is Overrated’ sweatshirt. This super-soft jumper can be worn on or off the shoulder, smashing yet another fashion must-have in 2017.
Be Bold Be Brave
Shy away from playing it safe and be bold and brave with a solid yellow top, skirt, dress or jacket. Wear yellow with neutral colours or light blue jeans. Add an extra colour block with some green heals to create a fun look. If yellow really doesn’t suit your skin tone wear this bold colour below your waistline and keep it neutral on top. This skirt by Zara is stunning and can be contrasted with a blue denim shirt or nautical stripes.
This top by Warehouse is both bold and beautiful and would make a great colour paring with light blue jeans. Add some street style edge with ripped jeans.
Break it up
Still unsure about splashing yellow into your wardrobe, opt for a yellow pattern. By breaking up the colour you can minimise the effect of this loud and proud hue. This off-the-shoulder top by Whistles has the three s's. Stylish, sassy and sophisticated and uses warm honey colours to tone down the yellow.
