HOW TO INJECT HAPPINESS INTO YOUR WARDROBE

EMBRACE THIS SEA­SON’S BRIGHTEST HUE TO INJECT INSTANT HAPPINESS INTO YOUR WARDROBE

The Observer - - WEEKEND - WORDS: AM­BER MACPHER­SON

Sun­flow­ers, duck­lings, ba­nanas and man­goes – yellow is bloom­ing in na­ture and def­i­nitely blos­som­ing in out­fits.

This sea­son is all about the colour of happiness, ap­pear­ing in tones from pas­tel lemon to rusty 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 the 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 do 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.”

“EV­ERY­ONE IS JUST OBSESSED WITH THE YELLOW. IT’S A RE­ALLY EASY COLOUR TO WEAR. IT’S FEMININE AND I THINK IT SUITS A LOT OF SKIN TYPES.”

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