Walking on sunshine: seven ways we’re wearing winter’s brightest hue, yellow

Now that Autumn is starting to settle in, why not embrace the season's golden hue to brighten your mood? The sunshine shade of yellow has been doing the rounds over the last year, slipping its way into covetable collections and earning its place as a fashion trend to watch. Luxury fashion House Bottega Veneta lists itself as one of the shades biggest fans, with several industry trailblazers crediting the brand for making yellow 'cool again'.

We can't say we disagree. A colour that both inherently boosts our mood and has received the sartorial seal of approval is guaranteed to catch our eye. Though we won't lie, initially yellow may seem like a daunting colour to tackle – especially for those among us who normally steer away from bold colour-ways. Surprisingly, however, yellow is not as challenging to merge into your wardrobe as you might think.

Here, we're sharing our edit of the hottest pieces in rotation to adopt the 'yellow fashion trend' this winter.


Loewe Polo Sweater in Wool

As with most bold shades, if you're not quite ready to embrace a full monochrome look, it's best to pair your yellow pieces with a base shade or material that you're comfortable wearing. Opting for darker wash of gray is not only weather-appropriate but will also accentuate the golden hue of your yellow pieces; rather than washing the shade out as a light-wash base tone would. Accessorise with gold jewellery and a touch of olive for a pared back look.


Dion Lee Gradient Rib Skirt

Characteristically, incorporating colour into your winter wardrobe has always been a challenge; due to the simple fact that most of what's on offer during the cooler months are pieces in staple hues. With no disregard to those forever pieces in favour of the yellow fashion trend, it's about showing up and showing out with a statement set. This Dion Lee co-ord is egg-yolk yellow and uncompromisingly flattering with its ribbed texture.


GANNI Yellow Small Crossbody Butterfly Bag

A deeply playful take on the yellow fashion trend is to accessories with pops of smaller pieces. To create interest and depth, we suggest experimenting with contrasting textures, finishes and shades. Perhaps a buttery yellow bag for an infusion of campy fun.


Bottega Veneta Light Cotton Twill Dress


A low-hanging collar in arguably yellow's most flattering shade: mustard. Bottega Veneta has engineered the perfect drop-waist number that manages to be both whimsical and elegant. The balloon shape and mid-length are the perfect subtle accompaniments to the star of the show.


COS Pure Cashmere Jumper

Who can resist a brighter hue on a knit? This highlighter-bold sweater in reverse jersey stitch is a textural delight with a little bit of flair. Pair it with cream pants for a Cos approved getup, or go risque with a leopard print bottom, which we can also advise on.


Mexico 66 Onitsuka Tigers

The sneakers of the season draws every eye to its Kill Bill and Bruce Lee remniscient colourway. Best news? They're unisex.


Bianca Spender Lemon Wool Koehler Coat


Voluminous, breathable, and the same meringue-yellow that pairs well with just about anything. A perfect addition to your day-to-day wear for an elevated core basic. Slip it on and thank us later.
