FINALLY! The sun is shining today and we can actually feel the warmth in London. You know the kind where you want to stick your face in it, close your eyes and grin- that sort of warmth. The birds are singing and all we are thinking is FINALLY!
In honour if this rare day in March as we sit with daffodils in the office I was inspired to write about some amazing yellow pieces on the high street right now. Yellow ticks a lot of boxes for us because whilst it is bright, bold and fun it also has a way of making an outfit look chic and classy. In particular, I am talking about that darker tone of yellow that we are seeing back in shops again after it rose in popularity over the Autumn. I think it is a colour that really suits all skin tones and looks great with some layered gold jewellery which we are also huge fans of!
One of our main methods and loves when it comes to styling is mixing designer and high street clothing. Bizarre as it may sound we find that a deep yellow tone can often be a colour that can make an item look more high-end, the colour along with of course the cut and fit of an item such as this Topshop dress featured in the pictures above. This is the perfect combination of the yellow being used within a stripe which is a current trend but then it also has the layering at the bottom and the tortoise shell buttons… obsessed!
Right, and now on with our yellow faves:
First up is this gorgeous yellow leather skirt. This precise tone of yellow looks amazing in leather, the buttons give a high quality feel to the item and the tie waist gives another dimension to the skirt to nip you in!
Next is this cute top with again the amazing buttons! I love the way the pocket stripes are horizontal against the vertical stripes on the main body. Also the buttons finish in the perfect place for if you wanted to tuck it in to some high waisted jeans, yes yes yes!
For those sunny days that still have a hint of chill to them this cropped yellow jacket is perfect. If you are looking to bring more colour into your wardrobe and are usually a denim jacket person maybe this one can mix up a staple for you? The white stitching and raw hem line give the jacket a retro feel that we love!
This cami from Topshop is a very pale yellow but had to be included as it is a real staple and would look amazing tucked in to denim shorts with a chunky belt and some trainers, agree?
Of course we had to mention this amazing yellow and white stripe top that we own and LOVE. It hangs so beautifully and the collar and tie at the waist are such cute details. In addition, don’t forget that if you want to grab a friend or sibling to wear the dress whilst you are wearing this you too can do a sound of music rendition just like us 😉
