Strap yourself in, this new accessory "in" colour is not for the faint hearted. Just as it gets grey and gloomy outside, yellow hues are here to lift us all up.
As a shade we're not terribly confident with, when we saw this trend on the autumn/winter ’18 runways it instantly caught our eye. There were two different stand out shades that stood out: mustard's and sorbet brights and they both define two very different styles of dressing.
Roksanda’s effortlessly, sophisticated woman opted for can’t-miss-me brights when it came to her canary yellow boots and top handle bags. Not for shy, this shade represents a colour happy individual that we dying to clash with other warm wintery brights. On the other end of the scale, Isabel Marant’s thigh high mustard cowboy boots dominated their aw18 runway show which was otherwise a fairly muted palette of grey, beige and burgundy. If you’re like me and often stick to a natural pallet it was the push we needed to want to reach for a yellow accessory and proof that it looks oh so 2018.
From By Far's mustard croc shoulder strap bag to Stella McCartney's Eclypse sneakers, it is clear that bags and shoes dominate for this trending colour. However, we've discovered that vibrant belts, sunglasses and even scarves exist too—from Off-Whites logo mania scarf to Topshop's bungee cord belt. There's nothing happier than a yellow accessory. Fact. So here are our favourites…
