Why you should wear Yellow this summer
It is said that Yellow is perhaps the most energetic of the warm colours. It is associated with laughter, hope and sunshine. Accents of yellow help give your design energy and will make the viewer feel optimistic and cheerful. So, whilst we're feeling like jumping into Summer (not long now, folks!) why not take the chance to bring Summer into our lives a little early?
What colour goes well all shades of Yellow?
The colour yellow goes with a variety of other shades, however, these are typically other shades of the same strength. To find out more about matching shades we refer to the colour theory wheel. We’ve previously mentioned the colour wheel in our past articles, so here’s a super quick refresh:
“The colour wheel is a visual representation of colours, with hues arranged according to wavelength. Colour wheels allow colour relationships to represent geometrically and show the relationship between primary colours, secondary colours and tertiary colours – Invision App”
With looks in mind, we are going to focus on two of the colour wheel sections: complementary and analogous.
Complementary simple means the colours that are found opposite your main shade. So, for a yellow shade, you might choose purple or blue. Whereas with Analogous, this refers to shades that are on either side of your chosen colour. So, again, for a yellow shade, you might choose to add green or orange, along with other shades of yellow.

The Yellow Jewellery
It wouldn't feel acceptable for us to showcase how to wear yellow without mentioning why we are all drawn to love yellow in summer. Besides it being the shade of the sun, of course, we're also in awe of each little flower that makes its appearance from spring onwards. That's why our next accessory is this dainty buttercup flower pendant necklace. Subtle and chic, it would pair perfectly with any of our yellow designs.

What shoes goes best with a yellow dress?
Choosing the colour of your footwear when it comes to wearing a yellow dress is, understandably, different to choosing something to go with a black suit. We do, however, think that a variety of shades go with a yellow dress. Here we’re going to go through a few different styles that we think would go perfect with your yellow look.
Taking some inspo from our Orla Asymmetric dress we can see that although black may not be the most blending of shades with yellow, it is a staple shade that goes with everything.
These open-toe pin-buckle fastening stilettos offer height and elegance. Where we have paired them here with the image of our dress in mind, they are also perfectly paired for a more casual look (also pictured).

The White Tie Stiletto
It’s not very often that you can correctly fashion a white stiletto with a dress and not feel like you should be reaching for your nuptials. Alas, however, with the right shade of yellow in mind we find that the choice of wearing white shoes can pair perfectly. Here we’ve chosen the Public Desire pair that features both a high point heel and tie-leg design.
Buy now via ASOS £32.99
Alternatively, you could also try these for size: the Nesha yellow tie stiletto, £38
Squared toed boots have been the trending item for many a winter, however, recently we've seen a surge in square-toed sandals. Here, we've chosen a short stiletto design that features a strappy tie and features the most sought-after sole.

The Yellow Flat
Wearing heels is not essential when it comes to our dresses, which is why we adore these Call It Spring back strap sandals from ASOS. Its features are minimal, as expected, however, these cute sandals are statement pieces with a combination of both yellow and white with their sling-back strap.
