Sunny Side Up
This season the citrus-y hues are in town and they demand your attention. The beautiful hue of marigold illuminated the runway at New York Fashion Week and we’re expecting this sunny yellow to light up our wardrobes come winter.
The prestigious event saw models of fashion heavyweights Balenciaga, Valentino, Brandon Maxwell, Carolina Herrera and Oscar De La Renta sport the cheerful shade, paving the way for a 2019 fashion trend. Close to home, our very own Trelise Cooper has brought this beautiful bright to her current collections. It appears marigold is the new mustard as we see the golden hue, alongside paler tones like lemon and buttermilk, beginning to grace every item of clothing from hats to shoes.
On the runway, yellow was presented both as an accent colour and as a head-to-toe look and has since been declared by many as the hottest colour of 2019. Marigold-coloured coats are trending in a ton of styles – faux fur, trench, cropped and puffer are coming in hot – and are the statement piece you’re looking for when it comes to black-on-black outfits.
For those whose wardrobes are 90 percent black, lemon-hued accessories or statement boots are the best way to inject a hint of sunshine into your look. Butter yellow makes for a dream pairing for both brights and more muted colourways, and if you want to turn heads, a suit in this shade is certainly a statement-maker. Stand out from the crowd this season by adding a handful of blazing yellow silhouettes to your winter capsule collection.
