spotlight: summer yellow

Yellow is an intimidating colour to wear. I'll be the first to admit it. Until the other day, I didn't own one yellow piece of clothing in my wardrobe - in fact, I've only recently begun to quietly slide into the world that is... ta-daa! Colour.

The great thing about yellow is it adds an instant brightness & cheeriness to your outfit. Not sure which hue is right for you? Test the different hues out with your skin tone. Bright, neon yellows look better with brunette hair to balance it out, where more goldenrod hues look great with blondes.

Some tips on wearing yellow:

- Unless you know exactly how to wear it, avoid just wearing black & yellow in order to avoid looking like a bumblebee costume gone wrong.

- Tone down a bright yellow piece of clothing with an otherwise neutral outfit.

- If it still intimidates you, keep it as an accent! A bag, necklace, or pair of shoes in a bright yellow can be a killer addition to an otherwise drab outfit.

and now.... YELLOW!
