I blame everything on Instagram these days, including the rise of #yellowmellow from an insta hashtag to in IRL – as the yellow color trend of 2018. I don’t mind it one bit, in fact according to my sign, #lioness its part of my color palette next to orange and red, so who’s complaining. Not to mention it’s such a summer symbol, which again is so me #summerchild, that I’m more than sold on this summer 2018 trend. And it looks great in photos. Besides, style wise no matter what you wear yellow will look good on you, it’s a matter of hue and whether or not you wear one item or drape yourself in lemonade. No?
Just bare with me throughout this post as we’ll go on the ride of your freaking lemonade summer life, and discuss HOW to wear yellow this season AND look fab!
If you don’t believe me, or Instagram, you’d better believe designers, cause their SS2018 collections had yellow in them through and through.
1.Head-to-toe YELLOW OUTFITS: DRESSES
I mean… just think Beyonce’s Lemonade yellow dress and let’s just all go home and cry of happiness. The best yellow outfits for summer are dresses: fluid, flirty, fitted, shift, shirt, midi length, maxis, or minis, in tiny prints, or solids, worn with espadrilles, heels, or sneakers.
2. Head-to-toe YELLOW OUTFITS: In more pieces
If dresses ain’t your shtick, OR you are one of those gals who looove to spend time on outfits and are the least laziest fashion person out there, (God I wish I knew what that was like), well then… it’s yellow outfits in 2, 3, 4, or 23,456 pieces for you. Skirts, shorts, tops of all sorts paired together regardless of style or cut, as long as they’re all yellow. It don’t even need to be the same yellow shade. In fact, I think the more shades and yellow hues the more it’ll all be sophisticated. From bright yellow to mustard yellow to more orange or muted and pastel styles – every lemon inspired color out there is your bestie this season.
Keep the rest simple, speaking of basic dressing here, and let yellow mellow shine through. Personalty I love either very casual laid back summer yellow outfits worn with nude comfy shoes, OR more polished yellow looks that look amazing with posh white slides or black minimal details.
BUT, yellow does look amazing against other colors, and we do live in a free fashion world, so if you wanna wear red shoes, green lips, or pink bags – go for it. It’ll definitely look fab for Instagram.
3. ‘I’ll have just one yellow thing please!’
Not everyone is such a yellow or a mellow kinda human… and some fashion lovers go by the mantra less is more, and make a bigger style splash with just one yellow item rather than wear the lemonade of the entire world at once. Yellow looks absolutely beautiful worn with blue denim, either jeans, or denim skirts or shirts. It’s one of the best combos if you ask me, worn either with heels or flat shoes.
Yellow anything also looks great against white and black, like a minimal clean outfit.
Again, if you’re an adventurous soul and love color blocking pair a yellow top with a pair of electric blue pants, or a red skirt. Do your thing.
Truth is, 2018 summer is a lot about color, big, bold, bright, solid shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, blues, greens… you get it. Designers are embracing these colors not just for this hot season but for fall 2018 as well…. so it makes perfect sense that each and every bold shade has its fans. And since summer is about fresh bright sunny days… Yellow Mellow lemonade is a winner.
What do you think? Do you actually like wearing yellow?
