Have you added sunshine yellow to your wardrobe yet? Beyoncé, Mary J Blige and Angela Bassett are just a few incredible celebrity style icons seen rocking the hue of the season recently.
Beyoncé looked stunning in a floaty sunshine yellow maxi, Mary J Blige wowed all her Insta fans in a lemon faux fur and matching body suit and unforgettably, Angela Bassett showed up to the New York Black Panther premiere in that dress.
It’s an easy way to brighten up dreary winter wardrobes and the best part is, it will go with lots of things you already have. Standard grey and navy pieces will work fabulously with a pop of yellow as it matches these colours like a dream. If you want to go for a more dramatic and retro look, pair your yellow statement with black leather or patent.
If understated is more your vibe, mustard tones will add a vibrancy to your wardrobe without looking too obvious. Against deeper skin tones with a red undertone, yellow works absolute wonders to brighten the complexion and make you look radiant. Keep accessories, hair and makeup simple but remember, a pillar box red lipstick will work wonders.
If you need somewhere to start your spring/ summer shopping, here’s some styling inspiration and the hottest yellow pieces in the shops right now that you’ll want to snap up in time for summer.
