What do you think about yellow?
Styling an outfit each morning can become a tedious task. With warmer weather finally making a comeback, the VA girls were discussing adding a change of colour. We all wear what is in our comfort zone but equally, we want to mix it up a bit.
The discussion on the agenda is yellow.
A hue associated with happiness, positivity, energy and sunshine. Styled correctly it can brighten up an outfit so effortlessly. But can we wear it? We know we can in the rain but what about in full sunshine?
We think we can and we will; it is about finding the right way. Starting slow and finding the shade to suit is where it all begins.
Introducing Yellow To The Wardrobe
There are various shade ranges to consider. A mustard tone is a foolproof option. A primrose is perfect for Spring. And for the brave who like to dress spontaneously, what about neon? We are thinking the pastels will be an easier entry point for those of us who are first-timers.
Introducing yellow doesn’t have to mean to dazzle like the sun. Dip into the trend by adding a subtle shoulder bag, a tee or a simple piece of jewellery. Sunglasses or reading glasses have always been a classic option.
Break It Up
Consider incorporating yellow with prints and patterns. A floral helps soften, making it more wearable.
Welcome a yellow piece into your wardrobe by styling it with the neutrals you already own. Try styling a pastel linen shirt with your everyday black pants.
Head To Toe
When you are feeling brave; move on to the final level. Go all out. Wear a dress and pair with a black or neutral slip-on mule.
Hopefully wearing yellow doesn’t have to mean ‘make way for the canary bird’. Start small and wear often is our new mantra.
