Cheerful, energetic, and totally attention-drawing. Yellow, the hottest colour of the season!
Although spring 2012 fashion is still a lot about neon, a softer approach torwards colours is visible. Instead of last season’s neon yellow taken straight from school’s whiteboards fluorescent markers, this time fashion designers stick to kitchen influences. Lemonade lemon (as seen in Mulberry, note the yellow bag too), yummy banana (Akris), mellow yellow sunflower (Burberry Prorsum) and pastel lemon ice cream (Blugirl) take your clothes on a sleek, modern edge with a bold colour.
Choosing a yellow shade that will frame your face and match your complexion beautifully is like choosing the right red lipstick. You just need to work it out. Here’s a little clue: pastel yellow will look better on blondes and light brown haired women. Brunettes should choose an empire yellow shade, while lime neon will suit all women with a sun-kissed skin.
