How to wear yellow

By | Fashion | No Comments

Yellow is always on trend and as Spring arrives after a hard grey and a white Winter you will crave that pop of colour. But? Who can safely wear it? This article shows exactly that everyone can. It’s just a case of knowing how to, no matter what your colouring…read on… (For a pop of colour check out pure silk champagne ladies scarf)

Disclaimer: the following statement may cause mild terror and trepidation.

Yellow is the colour of the SS16 season. Bright sunshine, lemon, mustard – name a shade of yellow and it appeared at the spring showcases back in September 2015. The designers did not just stop at block, look-at-me colours either. Nay, yellow was splashed on snakeskin, satin, floral chiffon, lace and beading.

A quick poll of the team showed that not one Telegraph Fashion member counted the brilliant butter hue as their strong point. In desperation we turned to the consultants at Colour Me Beautiful, a styling service exploring skin tone matches.

Good news for people who can pull off contrasts, says MD and author Veronique Henderson. Redheads and women with porcelain skin and bright blue eyes, for example, can easily wear yellow because it works as a striking comparison to their features.

Rather than getting caught up with complexion and colour harmony, Henderson recommends working on how to introduce yellow into outfits while looking comfortable.

Embrace unlikely sounding matches

Mustard and grey, lemon and bubblegum – if it sounds like a peculiar food pairing, then go for it! Yellow requires a strong colour to stand up against,which is why a redhead looks more at home in a sunshine sweater than a mousy-haired woman. Turn the tricky colour into a platform to show off your fun side, as demonstrated by Caroline Issa’s punchy fashion week ensemble.

Colour, style & versatility – a blog by The Debonair

The pocket square is the single most indispensable tool for defining a man of style. Truthfully there’s no particular rules for wearing one, just ensure it complements your shirt and tie, rather than matching them. I prefer to wear silk pocket squares so ‘City Life’ by Shop Blue Flamingo was a pleasure to style. The great thing about the design is that it has two distinct and versatile colour schemes, which allows you to create two completely different looks.

Formal pocket square styling

Inspired by the city, the vibrant geometric shapes really make this pocket square pop. Furthermore, the silk looks far more luxurious than cotton and is a great way to add a professional touch to your jacket. The shine and colour scheme is incredibly classy, which is ideal for adding head-turning detail to formal attire. I used the brown and gold section of the design to complement my navy Moss Bros plaid suit and match the details on the face of my Vancouver Skeleton watch by Thomas Earnshaw.

Smart casual pocket square styling

The great thing about about the City Life pocket square is its versatility. By simply folding the square in an alternative manner, you can achieve a completely different look. It’s almost like having two pocket squares in one, which is highly useful especially in the city. Leave this one in your desk drawer to class-up your suit for important meetings, or switch from green to gold as you leave work and head to the bar. I used the greens to complement my grey Moss Bros plaid suit, which works perfectly with this season’s big menswear trend; the roll neck jumper. I also added a geometric green lapel pin to further-complement the detail in the square.

To conclude, this pocket square is incredibly versatile. The distinct colour schemes allow you to create two completely different styles, while the geometric design makes it stand out from your jacket. Priced at just £35, this beautiful piece of silk is a total steal!
