Get ready for some instant sunshine! Yellow is a sunny, feel-good colour but you need to get just the right shade for you and have the confidence to wear it.
Yellow is a warm colour so it won't complement you if you have a cool, pinkish skin tone, but if you love it, wear it as part of a print, or in your accessories. The exuberant yellows will be too strong for certain colourings, you really have to test your yellows against your face to see how much brightness you can take. Remember the acid yellow shades of the eighties? They are back but they are still not easy to wear and not very flattering on anyone so are best avoided! You can mix yellow with other colours in your wardrobe, but you don’t need much to make a statement in this shade - even shoes, a handbag or scarf will set-off your look or just a shot of colour peeking from under a jacket.
If you want to invest in a dress in this colour, keep it simple. You don't want too much detail on the garment and keep accessories to a minimum for an elegant statement look. Yellow with white this summer will look crisp and smart. Be careful wearing it with black, you don’t want to look like a bumble bee!
