Lydia's Look for Less: sunshine yellow


Share This Article:

Yes, you heard me. Yellow, the most difficult colour to wear, is now the must have colour this season.

From bold and daring head to toe golden looks to dusty and delicate sprinkles of pastel lemon, the runway is definitely embracing the happiest of shades.

At Carolina Herrera there were golden sweeping gowns and at Mansur Gavriel powersuits got a lesson in yellow colour blocking.

Amongst the black and whites of Christopher Kane’s collection were flashes of dazzling yellow and within the soft and ethereal world of Ralph and Russo was a gorgeous silk bold yellow dress.

This colour is meant to be seen and ensures you will always stand out.

The canary suit

Tibi’s collection featured a number of yellow pieces, most notably the golden dress gracing your insta feeds, however a really easy way of incorporating their collection into your wardrobe is to take inspo from their trousers.

At Topshop, you can get great pair of yellow look-alike trousers for only £30. Plus, by investing in the matching jacket for only £49, you'll have yourself the perfect alternative wedding outfit.

For casual-wear, try complimenting the yellow with a black and white gingham bardot top for an effortless summer look.

Pretty in pleats

One of the most iconic outfits from this season was Celine’s yellow pleated skirt with a lilac blazer, and now you can find a great replica of the skirt in H&M for £39.99.

This lightweight midi skirt would be perfect paired with a simple white T-shirt and trainers or sandals for holiday adventures. Or, to really embrace spring’s pastels, why not couple with a dusty pink camis and white sunglasses.

Feminine florals

If the idea of wearing bold head to toe yellow makes you shudder, then a yellow floral dress is a great way to dip into the trend. Self Portrait featured a beautiful floral golden pleated dress in their SS18 collection, and ASOS have a stunning piece to compete, for only £28.

This is the perfect summer dress, suitable for everything from beach to bbqs. With ruffle trim and a flattering assymetric hem, this dress can easily be paired with both trainers for the day, and wedged sandals by night. 

Cosy up on summer nights

Prabal Gurung’s runway featured a number of yellow items, with one in particular catching my eye - a brilliant jumper.

With the current beautiful weather it does feel odd to be looking at knitwear, but with one as lovely as this it can always be incorporated into your summer wardrobe and this is Britain, so let’s face it we’ll probably need a jumper very soon.

At Mango you can find a great replica for £39.99. This jumper is perfect for pairing with white shorts in summer evenings, or paired with cream or camel trousers and a clutch bag.

For a more colourful look, try wearing this jumper with a fabulous blue skirt and white and blue accessories!

We hope this inspires you to incorporate some sunshine into your wardrobe, whatever the weather decides!
