Trends: What's with all this YELLOW?

Pantone Colour Chart

Pantone Colour Chart

Have you noticed lately a wealth of gorgeously luxurious clothing and accessories in shades of ochre, mustard and gold? The warmth and neutrality of these shades of yellow make them perfect wardrobe pieces.

Whether they take the showstopping position in your closet or become this season's workhorse basics, you need to take notice of yellow, as it's happening in a BIG way. 

Why I Love SHADES OF Yellow

In its incarnations as you will see below, these tones and shades of yellow are the perfect non-colour colours. 

What are Non-Colour Colours? 

These are colours that work in any wardrobe regardless of the tones of the look they are being paired with. Say you want to wear black and greys, ochre is such an interesting complimentary colour that brings a energy to the look. Very cool when used in ultra masculine or feminine looks.

If your wardrobe is full of tans and camels, mustard is a fantastic way to bring a little zing to those neutrals. It's like a hyped up beige tone. 

Why you should Invest in Non-Colours

Non-colours are not only super versatile and therefore workhorses, they also become your go-tos on the days you don't have the energy to put together a strong/dynamic/super stylish look. Add a pop of yellow to your outfit with a gold bag or handbag and instantly you have a point of interest. Or pair a marigold polo neck with a pair of plaid trousers or miniskirt, easy, chic and cool. 

Test out my theory and play around with your wardrobe. Select a garment that you think wouldn't work and give it a try, I bet it does. Even millennial pink looks strikingly cool with a bit of Dijon huded suede mixed in. 

Gold-en footwear

These gold booties by Philip Lim with their kitten heel and pointed toe pack serious fashion punch and yet don't compromise on comfort one bit!

With the warmth of the ankle sock boot and the luxuriousness of the crushed velvet, what is not to love about these boots. Philip Lim is killing it this season with his footwear.

Pure office 'gold'

Love this & Other Stories oversized coat. Great for minimal to eccentric looks. I can see it as an every day staples as much as that pop to your outfit over a flowy dress on a night out.

The easiest way to add in a little colour and be totally covered/warm all winter. Plus at £35, & Other Stories is making the purchase decision a no brainer.

Blaze-ing through

I totally envision channeling Mick Jagger when I look at this sumptuous Galvan London Blazer. Imagine with black low slung trousers and noting else. SOOO sexy. But hey, not all of us can be so bold, why not just slip it on over a simple silk camisole and skinny trousers with sharp heels or ankle boots. If your feeling really brazen pick up a pair of the matching trousers, you'll look like a goddess.

Demure from the front and a whole lot of sex from the back. This Sid Neigum crushed velvet top with an open tie-back packs a lot of glamour for a great night out look.

My personal take

Most days you will find me rocking my vintage specs, which happen to also bring out the golden flecks in my hazel eyes
