Yel­low bright­est kid on the block

Life & Style Weekend - - CLOSET - WITH Sarah Barnes

YEL­LOW, in hues of lemon, mus­tard and ca­nary, is the bright­est colour on the block and has been shown as a true favourite of de­sign­ers this sea­son. Here is how to wear the sea­son’s bright­est colour – com­fort­ably.

◗ BE THE SUN­SHINE: colour, yel­low is sym­bolic Knownof hap­pi­nes­sas a mood-liftin­gand pos­i­tive en­ergy. But we some­times lack the courage to wear it. Ali­cia This Sil­ver­stonevi­brant shadein Clue­less,pops up Em­main the suits Stone’s worn dressby in and La the La Beast.Land and Yel­low, Belle’s once leg­endary­seen purely look as in a Beauty state­ment, is eas­ily in­te­grated into daily out­fits.

In­cor­po­rat­ing yel­low into your au­tumn wardrobe is easy when mixed with monochrome pieces. Pair a sim­ple black top or light jumper with mus­tard jeans for a bal­anced look, or dress in re­verse with a pas­tel yel­low bomber jacket worn with black trousers. Try pair­ing ca­nary yel­low palazzo plants with a monochro­matic blouse.

For evenings out you can wear a tai­lored daf­fodil dress or a lime yel­low blouse with de­tailed em­bel­lish­ment.

◗ AC­CES­SORISE: You can let ac­ces­sories pop with a small yel­low clutch bag or match­ing stilet­tos. Even sweep a light yel­low eye­shadow over the cen­tre of your eye­lid to make you look fresh and awake.

It’s an easy trend to com­part­men­talise, as any monochro­matic out­fit will act as a neu­traliser for the dar­ing yel­low ac­com­pa­ni­ment that you chose. Wear this sea­son’s happy colour with con­fi­dence.
