Style Theory: Yellow/Mustard/Minion Yellow (yes that is an actual pantone colour!) is the colour that can instantly lift your mood, it is sunny, joyful and a little frivolous. Lots of people shy away from yellow as they feel it does not suit their skin tone or is a tricky colour to wear but there really is a shade to suit everyone. I do love a mustard yellow, I find with a hint of (fake) tan I wear this colour with ease and wearing yellow really does brighten up my day. It is a matter of trying on different shades to see which one flatters your colouring, but don't be scared of yellow it really is an easy colour to wear..

Here are my top 10 yellow high street hits available now...
Ganni £355
The dream jumper, this is slightly orange in tone but I am squeezing it under the 'yellow umbrella' It is the most beautiful, wool/mohair mix knitted jumper, a utterly luxurious but useful piece to invest in. It looks great on with jeans, skirts, over dresses, the options are endless. I have this in red and can confirm it is gorgeous on, I have a small and it is still quite oversized but I like the slouchy nature of it, I paid so much for it so I want to get as much knit as possible! 
Topshop £32
A cute top to wear now with denim shorts and tan sandals, in the winter team with ankle length jeans, red boots and a navy blazer.
Forever 21 £14
A great, inexpensive way to dip your toe in the yellow trend, this T-shirt ticks so many boxes, slogan, the colour of the season and £14!!
&Other Stories £79
My sister has this blouse and it looks absolutely beautiful on her. It is such a flattering cut and colour and looks great styled with dark red, the perfect top to take you through from summer to winter. Wear under a red coat in the winter, for a super stylish look.
&Other Stories £35
For a cool look wear this sweater with jeans, dark red gazelles and some yellow tinted sunglasses, very scandi, very AW17..
Mango £25.99
The perfect, cool sweater to throw on with jeans and trainers at the weekend or for the school run..
New Look £35
Spotted this coat on Cara Suthers and love it and for £35 it is such a good buy!
Asos £8
Wear these sunglasses with a mustard/yellow sweater to create a cool, scandi look.
Zara £25.99
Love this blouse, it looks stunning on, elegant for work but also just as lovely with jeans and trainers at the weekend.
Zara £89.99
This slouchy leather bucket bag is AW17 perfection, wear with dark reds, clash with yellows or team with navy, the idea 'throw it all in' bag.

Are you ready to take the plunge with yellow? I love the way Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director of Pantone Institute describes the Pantone colour Minion Yellow 'Pantone Minion Yellow heightens awareness and creates clarity..the colour of joy, hope and clarity' So if in doubt and needing a little but of cheering up stick on some yellow!!

As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xx

  1. I wear yellow all year round and have done for a couple of years now. I love pale yellow and warm bright mustard yellow the best, really brightens and lightens up a drab dreary day. I have 3 yellow jumps and 3 yellow dresses alone :P never mind all of the yellow tops
