Taking a cue from the high fashion runways, you’ll know what’s going to be on trend in the coming months before items even hit stores. With warmer weather around the corner, brighter colors are about to be all anyone is wearing. And looking at the runways, vibrant, limoncello-inspired yellows are going to be a popular option. The soft and vibrant shade is here to brighten up your closet in a much-needed way.
Kendall Becker, a trend forecaster, explains to Byrdie that these lighter shades are akin to a palette cleanser, contrasting the vibrant shades that have previously been popular. “There’s a new wave of color hitting the market that I like to dub as ‘near neutrals’ — think steel blue, sage, and, of course, limoncello — and are a bit more approachable for the minimalistic to integrate into their wardrobes,” Becker explains. Of course, for those who love color, this shade of yellow will be a little something different for your wardrobe, but don’t be intimidated by this unconventional color. Anyone can incorporate it into their wardrobe.
Tone it down with a neutral
Yellow can be an overwhelming color for many people. If you’re a minimalist or just beginning to add color to your wardrobe, you don’t have to shy away from brighter shades. Toning it down with a neutral can allow you to enjoy the vibrancy without drawing too much attention to the look. A yellow top and white pants create a laid-back, light, and airy outfit that’s perfect for a beautiful spring or summer day.
Pair with other vibrant shades
Lean into the vibrancy by pairing yellow with other colorful shades. Two bright colors together create a look that’s eye-catching. Choosing pastel hues softens the look. Pink and yellow together add a playful femininity to the look, or choose two brighter shades like yellow and orange for a fun and sunny look. You can get creative with your color combinations and try new color schemes to make the yellow stand out in your outfit.
Play with texture
Any outfit can be made more visually interesting with the addition of texture. Lighter shades of yellow can look a little too washed out at times, so additions like ruffles can make an outfit look more visually interesting. Play around with unique features like ruffles, pleats, and knits to make spring outfits look like they came straight off the runway.
Consider a pop with accessories
Add a small bit of yellow by infusing your outfit with yellow accessories. Bags, jewelry, and shoes are all great ways to brighten up a simple outfit. Using accessories is also ideal if you’re playing with the idea of adding more color to your wardrobe. It can dress up a simple pair of jeans or a dress for more than casual occasions.
Opt for soft shades
Softer shades will help bring the limoncello vibe to your outfit. Look for clothing in soft pastel yellow that’ll be perfect for the spring and summer. Softer shades of yellow can also help you appear brighter and more youthful. Layer on different shades of yellow through accessories and outerwear to add depth to your outfit. These unique pieces together create an outfit that looks curated and casual.
