How to Wear Yellow and Other Bright Colours

26 April 2017

Yellow can be a tricky colour to master! Pick the wrong shade or wear with the wrong items and it could quickly look like a mustard mess. But wear it right, and you can really make a vibrant statement just in time for summer! We’re here to give you a few tips on how to get the most out of the colour yellow…

With April showers being a regular occurrence in May, June, July …and most other months too! It’s important you’re prepared for the weather in style. This vibrant yellow mac will look perfect teamed with our Betty Bootcut jeans in the classic blue shade as the two colours create a strong contrast that work really well together. Wear with a navy and white striped tee to add a touch of nautical inspiration to any spring outfit.

Whether it’s bright sunshine, lemon, or mustard; a yellow blouse is a summer staple whatever the weather! This bright and stylish sleeveless top features delicate pintuck detailing and buttons down the centre making the ideal throw-on for a warmer day. And when the weather begins to cool, just layer over a white denim jacket for a casual off-duty weekend look.
Bored of your usual jeans? Why not try a wide leg trouser as a summer alternative, the loose fabric is ideal in the heat, whilst the vibrant print means you can experiment wearing bold colours with ease.

If you’re not ready to embrace full-blown banana shades, opt for barely-there yellows such as subtle blondes to ease yourself into the yellow trend. Our Yellow Denim Capri Trousers are versatile and modern and make yellow seem very easy to style. Simply throw this pair on with a white t-shirt or a button-down blouse for an everyday summery look. Or if the typical British weather isn’t complying (as usual!), team your crops with a thin slogan jumper for a warm spring-like outfit. This cheerful knit will be sure to put a smile on everyone’s face!

If we still haven’t convinced you that yellow is the one for you, how about trying something bold and bright in a different shade? Pink is having a real moment right now and our style consultant, Mark Heyes’ has told us he thinks it’s going to be a huge on-trend colour this season! So, what better reason to embrace the trend? And what better way to do it than with a bold pink statement biker jacket!? This key piece is a true wardrobe show-stopper and will be sure to turn heads for all the right reasons this summer. Keep your layers below dark and simple, this way none of the attention is deterred away from this amazing jacket!

If you’re not afraid of colour and really want to embrace as many different bright shades as possible right now, why not try to wear colour where you wouldn’t normally, such as on your trousers. A bright trouser can really do wonders at flattering your legs, whilst giving an overall cheerful and vibrant summer look. Don’t feel like you should wear a plain top just because you’re going bold below; pick a subtle printed t-shirt that included the same colour as your trousers within the print. This will really tie the whole look together making you look coordinated and stylish for the season ahead.
