Every shade of yellow



I adore yellow, the happy colour of sunshine, daffodils and joy. In my wardrobe it is represented by a sweet and summery “milk maid” dress from Moschino Jeans and treasured DvF Quincy in gold sand.

Some may argue, but I truly believe that there’s the right shade of yellow for everyone. You just need to try things on or mix with crisp white or a touch of classic black. Simple.

From delicate coolness of lemon gelato to delicious custard to rich bursting with passion canary tones, here I present you the most gorgeous yellows from this year’s spring collections and a few beautiful photos from my favourite fashion editorials.

  1. I don't think I had owned anything yellow since I was a little girl, but this season I'm obsessed with it! It's so sunny and you're right, there really should be a right shade of yellow for everyone!
