Yellow is a warm colour so it won’t compliment you if you have a cool, pinkish skin tone, but if you love it, wear it as part of a print, or in your accessories. The exuberant yellows will be too strong for certain colourings, you really have to test your yellows against your face to see how much brightness you can take. Remember the acid yellow shades of the eighties? They are back but they are still not easy to wear and not very flattering on anyone so are best avoided! You can mix yellow with other colours in your wardrobe, but you don’t need much to make a statement in this shade – even shoes, a handbag or scarf will set-off your look or just a shot of colour peeking from under a jacket.
If you want to invest in a dress in this colour, keep it simple with not too much detail on the garment and minimal accessories for an elegant statement look. Yellow with white this summer will look crisp and elegant. Be careful wearing it with black, you don’t want to look like a bumble bee!
