When spring has sprung, it’s all about fresh, bright color palettes. This season is no exception with shades of sun-kissed yellow--from bright lemon hues to soft, buttery golds--popping up all over the place.
Wearing yellow can be tough but the broad spectrum of shades makes it much easier, and flattering, for a variety of skin tones. Brighter yellows, like this C&C tank, can accentuate a tan, while richer shades, like this girly Susana Monaco blouse, look great on olive and darker skin tones. Fair skinned fashionistas should seek out vibrant hues and avoid pale shades, which tend to look washed out. And for the darker-toned ladies, yellows of all varieties tend to be ultra flattering so, get your lemon-banana-mustard-goldenrod-saffron on!
Still shy about wearing yellow? Try incorporating small touches into your wardrobe, like an unexpected yellow bag (like the Kooba Carla shown here) or yellow-trimmed wedges (like these charming Hollywould lace-ups). Another trick for wearing yellow is to break up the color. This striped hoodie by Velvet Nicola pairs bold lemon hues with soothing navy to create a fun and flattering effect. The right, bright details can even help lighten your mood.
And our favorite yellow look for spring? The Little Yellow Dress. A sunny frock offers a playfully of-the-moment take on plain black or white versions. And Deborah Sweeney’s sweetly named Petunia dress goes from day-to-night with a quick change of jewelry and shoes.
When it comes to spring fashion, let the sun shine in!
