HELLO SUN­SHINE

EM­BRACE THIS SEA­SON’S SUNNIEST SHADE TO IN­JECT IN­STANT HAPPINESS INTO YOUR WARDROBE

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - FASH ION EYE - WORDS: AM­BER MACPHER­SON

Sun­flow­ers, duck­lings, bananas and man­goes — yel­low is bloom­ing in na­ture and the fash­ion world. This sea­son is all about the colour of happiness, ap­pear­ing in tones from pas­tel to mus­tard and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

Fash­ion de­signer Is­abelle Quinn re­cently re­leased a col­lec­tion of lemon sor­bet slip dresses and says they were snapped up al­most in­stantly. “They sold out in two weeks,” Is­abelle says. “Ev­ery­one is just ob­sessed with yel­low. It’s a re­ally easy colour to wear. It’s feminine and I think it suits a lot of skin types.

“It’s a great colour for spring. It re­ally pops and gives girls a lot of at­ten­tion. Guys look re­ally good in yel­low too.”

While it’s easy for some to pop on a golden hue and glow, it can be a tricky colour to get right if you’re not familiar with it.

Is­abelle rec­om­mends start­ing with a sim­ple yel­low gar­ment in a soft fab­ric, or opt­ing for ac­ces­sories in the cheer­ful hue.

“Yel­low linen is quite easy to wear, even for men,” Is­abelle says.

“Slip dresses are a go to and but­ton up linen shirts are re­ally nice, and even shorts — an easy breezy pair of linen shorts. You can wear yel­low just by wear­ing an easy style and ac­ces­soris­ing it, say, with a nice pair of san­dals or shoes.”

Pair­ing yel­low with other colours is a trick­ier prospect (black and yel­low can leave you look­ing like a bum­ble bee).

The safest bet is to stick to warm or pale neu­trals.

“Not black, def­i­nitely not black,” Is­abelle says. “You can wear white with yel­low, off white and caramels. Denim is great to wear with yel­low too.”
