Joy on the runway: pops of yellow


You wouldn’t know it by the models’ expressions, but there was plenty of joy on the runways for next spring/summer. I’ve picked a few themes and will be posting throughout the week.

I love these pops of sunshiny yellow. I’ve been told that yellow doesn’t love me (something about my pale, pinkish complexion) but there are so many shades out there for spring, I think there must be at least one for everyone.

  1. Yellow is my favorite color – it reminds me of warm golden sunlight, and yes, brings me joy! It would be great to see more people use yellow in clothing and accessories. It would be like seeing fields of sunflowers everywhere.
