Yellow Hues


typically try to avoid really bright colours especially yellow mostly because I feel like i'm pretty light already and wearing yellow would be going overboard but of recent, I've really been into the vibrancy of latin american clothing. This obsession started from when I stumbled upon the Emilio Pucci 2017 spring summer collection and the winter fall 2017-18 collection (HERE & HERE). There's a certain beauty to the way the collections managed to infuse colors I would typically never wear alone, talk less of combining them into fully synthesised outfits. This, was when I decided to dabble a bit with color.


Now I'm no color wheel expert so I decided to stick with different hues of the same colour just to play things safe. Lucky for me, I recently purchased a mustard yellow top because for some reason it's the only shade of yellow I can see myself wearing and while I was sorting through my post-uni wardrobe, I found this skirt I impulsively purchased in my second year and never wore and figured I'd give an all yellow outfit a try. 


Unfortunately, my mum a.k.a my photographer didn't get a good shot with my shoes but I just plain black block heels cause well, I figured that was enough colour to last a lifetime. I went for gold jewelry since they're pretty much yellow at this point. I'm so in love with this outfit because, from head to toe, I feel like it's evidently inspired by Latin America, which happens to be my current obsession. The skirt reminds me of a Latin dance skirt and although I'd never really have thought I'd wear this much yellow at once, I actually really like it.

  1. Yellow looks good on you. You should wear it more.
    My least favourite colour has to be purple. For some reason I just don't like it and I don't even own anything purple.
