Tricky Trends: Hello Yellow

Every season there’s a breakout colour and this summer it’s yellow.   I first fell in love with this jaunty shade this year.  At work.  My glorious swimwear client Lazul with is yoke yellow frocks, kept me optimistic and hopeful that summer would come.  In March I got my nails painted yellow to get me through the bitterest of months!  And then …  Amal Clooney almost stole the show at the wedding of the year radiating glamour in the Stella McCartney golden wonder.

According to Vogue “They’re calling it “Gen Z yellow” and it’s somewhere between a marigold and the shade of French’s mustard”.  It’s all over Instagram, the fashion press and the red carpet.   And yes it’s definitely a divisive colour and a tough one to pull off.    But there are tons of ways of wearing it without looking like an  ‘Angry bird’ or a banana.

I personally love a yellow frock.  Think Emma Stone in La La Land!  It always make a simple statement and if you are an Instagrammer like me, its a winning power pop to your grid & will garner 100s of likes!

If you are feeling a little more cautious then have fun with accessories or separates.  I’ve put together a gallery of some of my favourite pieces I’ve spotted on Instagram – do share yours with us!  Love Marie Louise xx PS sales are starting (woo hoo)
