The colour of the SS19 season has to be yellow. The warmest of colours, it reminds you of sunshine and happiness. We're going to be wearing every shade, from pale to neon, bright to sunshine, mustard, canary - you name it, a fashion girl will be wearing it. I personally will be sticking with 3 shades; mustard, canary and sunshine. 

Yellow can be quite a daunting colour because of its overwhelming brightness, but we shouldn't shy away from it. There are many ways that we can make yellow a more accessible colour to our wardrobes, even if you're a minimalist.

What I'm Wearing

I've taken on one of my bolder yellow tops and paired it with a pair of tailored checkered suit trousers and a pair of nude perspex heels from Tony Bianco. It's really just as simple as that. It's not daunting and I quite like this look. I have a few other bolder yellow pieces that I'm going to try and tackle soon, so watch out for that. 

Enough of that, here's my tips to styling yellow.

If you want to go all out, do it

 What I love about this piece is how sunshine yellow it is, as well as the pleated, halterneck and low back design. It's simple in design, but statement in colour. That's definitely a good choice to make when wearing yellow if you aren't all that comfortable. Go for something that is simple in design yet bold in colour, then dress it according to your style - pick muted colours to compliment like whites and nudes. 

Try yellow accessories

Sometimes we aren't comfortable wearing a single block colour, especially if we are set in our ways of fashion. But we can use a little something-something to jazz up pieces we have worn multiple times. Why not add that subtle pop of colour that you've wanted to? For this season, go for yellow. It can be plain or patterned and any kind of accessory; jewellery, shoes, bag, scarf, whatever fits your fancy. I've linked a few pieces below that I love for accessorising. 


You won't look like a bumblebee

Styling black with yellow instantly spurs the thought, "I'm going to look like a bumblebee". You won't if you do it right. A black pair of subtle heels and maybe a leather jacket won't make you look like a bee, I promise you. You'll look more edgy than tiny bug. My ideal options would be a pair of those The Row & Jacquemus style strappy sandals, which are being duped everywhere, to pair with a yellow piece. A classic leather jacket or even a black blazer with the sleeves rolled will turn down the volume on the bold colour and make you look sophisticated. If you're really against the black, go for brown or nudes to contrast and turn down the colour. Here's a few affordable options for you to dive into. 


Jump on the Trend Wagon

Rattan and shells are all the rage this Spring Summer, so why not go full seasonal with accessorising yellow with the trends? You'll be extra beachy, extra summery and just full of good vibes. I don't have much to say other than go for it! Here's the best pieces out there right now to do just that. 


Personally, I don't think yellow should be as daunting as it seems. Maybe there's a bunch of you who are like, "Emily what are you on about? We can easily style yellow." But some people don't feel as comfortable and may be trying to figure out the best ways. These options above are my go-tos for the colour. Just go for it. It's going to be a dominate colour this season and I have a feeling it'll work it's way into AW19 too. I'm excited to experiment more with the colour and I hope you do too. 

What other colours do you find hard to style or you're worried about styling? Let me know, because I'd love to experiment!

Lots of Love,

Emily xx
