Colour of Summer 2019: Yellow

Yellow: It’s one colour we’re seeing everywhere this season. Whether it’s a pale shade or a citrus hue, this bright colour has popped up in everyone’s summer wardrobe.

Here’s how you can add this trendy colour into yours.

Where It Started

The yellow trend first emerged in last season’s New York Fashion week. Whether it was an Escada trenches or Rodarte dress, designers across the board found a way to incorporate this hue into their look books.


Why We Love It

Wearing yellow makes you feel as light and bubbly as the colour itself, and there’s a hue for every occasion. From bumblebee to burnt, yellow is a versatile colour that fits any look, whether you’re going to work, running errands, or getting away on sunny holidays.

Yellow looks good on its own, as a statement piece, or with other light summer shades. A mustard coloured cardigan paired with navy trousers brings understated class, while a bright yellow bikini turns heads on the beach.

You can complement an egg yellow pantsuit with pink and creme pastels, while aspen gold and coral tones create a soft, muted look. Shades of yellow let the wearer decide how bold and loud to dress.


How We’re Wearing It

We’re dressing up dark yellow pantsuits with beige mules, and going casual in yellow concert tees and cutoff shorts.

Yellow slingbacks and sandals bring fresh vibes to your shoe game—this colour isn’t limited to clothes. Go golden wearing designer shoes for less in these metallic Gucci sandals

With warm temperatures and long days, why not inject a little sunshine into your wardrobe?
