You know you’re blooming in pure optimism when head-to-toe yellow is not only encouraged but considered one of the best selling trends for this summer. The great news is that yellow miraculously compliments tanned skin and extremely fair tones as well. Let’s just take a moment to think of the big ‘yellow’ moments of this year. From Beyonce’s infamous Cavalli (when she’s Lemonading, of course) Emma Stone in La La Land or Emma Watson in Beauty and the Beast. But yellow is not only a big Hollywood hit (although it does remind us of gold, so Oscars and Golden Globes). The shade featured on the S/S 17 runways at Acne Studios, Chloé, Mulberry and Jil Sander. It’s also very popular day wear. Let’s look at the key ways to wear yellow this summer!
If you want to emulate the ultimate European summer day outfit, look no further than the mustard yellow day dress. It is elegant and comfortable enough to walk around and discover the city. Its perfect companion is a straw basket bag and a pair of sleek and comfy mules. Finish the look with a pair of oversized sunnies for the ultimate Italian actress goes incognito look.
For the yellow sceptic, we have a great solution. Opt for the biggest trend, yellow wide legged pants, and style them with a muted colour palette top if you want to ease into the yellow trend (white, black. eggshell). If you’re feeling bolder tie in the yellow with a completely unexpected and oh-so-optimistic colour like ciel blue (check Leandra Medine’s version in the gallery) or a bright purple or fuchsia. Finish your look with a similar colour high heel sandal and an uber cool mini clutch.
Why do one trend this summer when you can have two? The romanticism of the gingham pattern beautifully pairs with the pure zest for life of the yellow and the two can create some super cool outfits. From an off the shoulder top, mini summer dress, a scarf. bag or even a little blazer. Pair them with white denim jeans, sandals, oval sunnies and a basket bag. Your summer day outfit is ready.
Vintage Yellow Glam
There’s an undeniable power in yellow dresses it’s not by chance that most stars opt for this colour when posing on the red carpet. Who can forget Rene Zellweger in 2001 Oscars, wearing vintage Jean Desses, Michelle Williams in that gorgeous ruffle gown by Vera Wang in 2006 or Alicia Vikander’s custom made Louis Vuitton at last years Oscars? Try a maxi yellow slip dress with tousled hair red lip and gold accessories. Pair the dress with high heels and a chic clutch for the perfect summer going out look.
