Fashion: Egg-yolk yellow – how to wear the style world's trickiest colour
The autumn chills might be here – but your wardrobe can still be sunny-side-up, says Liz Connor
MOVE over burgundy, spiced orange and earthy brown, there's a new colour that's set to dominate our autumn style – and it's inspired by the zingiest shade in the paintbox.
Yellow might not seem like the easiest trend to rock year-round, but with a few simple style cues, it can easily become the hardest-working hue in your wardrobe.
If you're already reaching for your lemon blazer or dusting off your canary clutch bag, take note: This season's trend is all about a delicious shade called 'egg yolk'.
Richer than butterscotch, brighter than burnt orange and nudging into gold territory, egg yolk is surprisingly versatile shade that works for all skin tones – even those on the fair and freckly side.
Try pairing up matching pieces with the same tone and fabric for an effortless statement, or add a colourful blouse to a simple pair of tailored leather trousers for a less out-there take on the trend.
Egg-yolk even lends itself to the office. Yellow tailoring is one of the smartest ways to get an edge on the trend and the high street offers a variety of sunflower-coloured suits, from double-breasted 70s power dressing to sweet and simple blazers.
Dress them up with a pair of minimal kitten heels, or take the look down a notch with a slouchy white slogan tee and a pair of white Veja V-10 trainers.
Here's our pick of the best, autumn-ready yellow pieces to start incorporating into your wardrobe now...
