HELLO Yellow: Inspiration

You know when something just grabs you and you think WOW, that is a look that i love. Inspiration hits you like a bolt of fashion lightening and you think to yourself, this is the most perfect spring smart/casual, stylish yet quite wearable look that i must have.

Yep. That’s what happened when i saw this stunning outfit over at Shopbop.


Tibi Yellow Top

Black Tassle Earrings these in the image are by Misa

Similar jeans: Julia Straight Leg by Paige

I absolutely adore everything about this outfit, the shade of yellow, the cut of the jeans, the contrast with the earrings and the tiny hit of teal with the shoes.. Styling at it’s very best.
But at £300 for a top, alas it’s not meant to be for me ( my kids need feeding, like all the time;)
But that doesn’t mean i can’t take inspiration from this look and recreate on a (much)smaller budget. 

Now the thing with yellow is there are so many different hues, shades and tones which is good really as yellow can be a tricky colour to wear. My advise would be try a few shades out and see how they sit with your skin tone and hair colour. I know blondes find this colour a difficult one, but try an ochre or a mustardy yellow for a contrast between hair and top.

The yellow top hunt has commenced…

Topshop Jacquard Top

My first stop was this at Topshop after seeing it on Suzie of Hello October’s IG feed whilst she attended London Fashion Week. She styled this with a black biker jacket, distressed jeans and red shoes.. It was a gorgeous striking look. This blouse would work well through spring summer too.

Topshop Frill Sleeve Jumper

A little knitted crop jumper up next. Very cute and would work great with a midi skirt due to its cropped waist hem. Or high waisted jeans would work well too. 

Autograph laser cut blouse

Darker ochre shade from M&S now, the lazer cut detail is gorgeous and i love the look with smart black ankle grazer trousers.

Dobby Lace Blouse

A little more relaxed with a hint of boho, add some blue kickflare jeans for a more modern look.

Cold Shoulder from Asos

The styling of this creates a relaxed fun look which makes the top look less dressy (which i like!) But it could also work tremendously well with some black coated skinny jeans and some red pointed heels.

Asos V neck Blouse

A little more dressy but a great out-out blouse. Scrape hair back and wear with faux leather or skinny jeans.

So yellow, its usually a divider.. Love or Loathe?

I dug out my only yellow item and gave it a whirl this week and really enjoyed the look.

    Wow, when I saw your topic was yellow, I wasn't immediately keen but most of these tops are lovely. It's nice to have my mind changed every now and then.

    I was a huge fan of yellow when I was younger and now I don't wear it much but I'm really getting into mustard and a bright yellow for Spring must look amazing. Out of all of the ones in this post my favourite is that cold shoulder one from ASOS, I love it.
