The Colour Yellow
Like many people I have been feeling the post Christmas blues recently – so what a better way to add a bit of warmth than with a splash of yellow: a vibrant, fun, flirty colour perfect for taking our minds of the gray and drab winter months. Yellow is always guaranteed to lift our mood and get us noticed, just remember Rihanna's show-stopping neon yellow Giambattista Valli dress at last year's BET Awards. Its not just added some joy to my January however, the Spring Summer catwalks were full of yellow, particularly Louis Vuitton, Marni, Giambattista Valli and Chloè. My personal favourite however is a silk blouse from réyes. Like most trends wearing yellow looks trickier than it is. You can play it safe with yellow accented scarves, hair ribbons and jewellery, and tone it down by mixing it with other colours or denim. There are so many hues to choose from as well such as mustard, canary, and lemon meaning that everyone can find a shade or two to suit their colourings - I for one can’t wait to inject a little bit of sunshine into my life!
