Brighter Side

Β Are you ready for some warm sunshine coming your way? Spring Forward means more sunshiny days ahead. We not only get to switch our clocks forward but also cast away all our heavy winter coats, clean out our closets, fill them up with lighter summery clothes and take a look at the brighter side of everything. When I think of sunshine, the first color that comes to my mind is yellow, a beautiful upbeat color that uplifts out spirit and celebrates the beauty of spring perfectly. Yellow is a cheery, youthful and optimistic color that’s associated with the color of the sun, laughter and happiness (smiley faces are yellow for a reason). Here are a few pictures for inspiration to add more yellow to your Spring – Summer wardrobe.


From candy colored to neon, a touch of yellow is always going to brighten up your wardrobe, ensemble and your spring / summer days. Styles inspired from 20s and 50s to sporty and futuristic were seen on the runway. You can also go for prints (floral or automobile inspired), dip dyed effects, fringes, cut-outs, lace, 3D appliques, shimmer, metallics, peplums or color-blocking. If you want to keep it subtle, add it in the form of accessories like you see in the Dsquared2 campaign pictures. Do you love this color? Are you inspired enough to add yellow to your wardrobe? Let me know what you think. Have a lovely sunflowery day!

      Amazing, isn’t it? I see yellow everywhere. I guess this is what people call as “spirit of the times”. I love the Mulberry ones too and I love their props!. πŸ™‚

    • March 17, 2012 at 6:59 pm

      I have slowed down a bit but not away πŸ™‚ I am not really into yellow either but I somehow feel it fits perfectly with this time of the year. πŸ™‚

    I never like the color too much, but I have to admit my taste change and I am falling in love with this pretty color. Beautiful pictures! Yes, I had already added yellow to my wardrobe. I bought a mustard skirt at Forever 21. Love your blog! Would you like to follow each other?

      Yellow can be an intimidating color…it takes a while to warm up to it. I am pretty flexible when it comes to colors but it all depends on my mood. I can go from wearing pastels and neutrals to really bold ones. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for following! Following you too.

  23. March 17, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Great photos. The color is absolutely gorgeous. I need to find my perfect yellow dress.

  24. March 18, 2012 at 10:24 am

    Such stunning campaigns!


  25. March 18, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Thanks for the inspiration! Yellow can be tricky to work into an outfit. I have a hard time wearing a variety of yellows I look best in mustard or neon. I might try pastels now though. Mulberry campaign examples are my fave =)


    • March 21, 2012 at 12:49 am

      It is tricky..agree! I love a touch of neon and mustard is a wearable color. I love the Mulberry campaign pictures too. πŸ™‚

  26. March 18, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I don’t own any yellow clothes, but would like to! Yellow is a fun, happy colour. I wonder if I would be able to pull it off!

    • March 21, 2012 at 12:51 am

      I think twice before wearing yellow too but it always ends up making me feel better so I think it’s good to give it a try πŸ™‚

  27. March 20, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    You know, yellow is a color I am majorly lacing in my closet and I really plan to change that this season! I absolutely adore the first picture!!!

    I never used yellow. I think it’s a bold colour and I’m afraid it wouldn’t look good on me. πŸ™‚
