Trend How-To: It Was All Yellow

Pastel, lemon, mustard or acid bright: Yellow is definitely having a moment! Local and international designers alike have fallen for the happy, sunshine-y colour. Versace, Isabel Marant, Carven and Louis Vuitton all showcased yellow pieces on their Spring 2012 and Resort runways. A number of celebrities have also been embracing yellow clothing, including Whitney Port, Nicole Sherzinger, Elizabeth Olsen, Blake Lively and Nikki Reed.

Closer to home, yellow is the perfect antidote to the impending wintery weather. It can be worn head to toe, as seen at Chanel and Arabella Ramsay, or as a feature piece, try the CC Skye Portico bracelet or the Aldo McEnroe Bag for a pop of colour.

Australian Magazines have hailed mustard as the colour of the season but other variations will look just as fashion forward. Our gallery of runway looks highlights different ways of wearing yellow, so if you had previously thought this trend was too tricky, take inspiration from some of these!

    I love yellow…but it never seems to suit me

  • Reply dapperdolly Sunday 22nd April, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    As long as we wear shades that suit us it’s fine and uplifting otherwise Yellow can make people look haggard really easily.

      I can do mustard but the neon’s wash me out. I think I can grab some neon action in the form of accessories though, and what better than that sweet asos bag?!
