Trend Importance Factor: Medium.
Wearability Factor: Medium.
How to Wear It: Mimic the warmth of the sun with the addition of bright yellow to your wardrobe. The color looks especially fresh paired with orange, white, or a spring green. Fair skin tones should steer clear of pale yellows and go with a more vibrant shade so as not to look washed out. Beware of yellow on Asian skin; choose darker or more vibrant shades. On darker skin tones, however, yellows of all shades are extremely flattering.
Where in Trend Lifecycle: Shades of yellow have been on the fashion scene over the last few seasons, but this season’s emphasis on the color reflects a larger move towards more pastel shades.
