SS14 Top 10 Trends: No. 5 Yellow

Today's Trend: Yellow - One of summer's hottest colours this season is the bright and cheerful yellow. A tricky trend to pull off that can look amazing when done right. Remember to find a shade that suits your skin tone! According to the managing director at Colour Me Beautiful, you should follow the tips below to help find the right yellow for you:

LIGHT (Light hair, skin and eyes)
You are best to keep your yellows 'as pale as possible,' ivory with a hint of yellow or a light primrose will be best

CLEAR (Dark hair, bright eyes)
A bright yellow or bright orange on a shiny fabric (silk, taffeta) will emphasis your bright eyes

DEEP (Dark hair, dark eyes)
Wear lemon yellow and tangerine in contrast with black for a great look - or on its own for greater impact

WARM (Strawberry blonde/auburn hair)
You are born to wear yellows, oranges and limes. Whether you have freckles or not, don't be shy. Embrace those colours and make them your own

COOL (Silvery hair, light eyes)
Stay clear of wearing yellow and oranges head-to-toe. You are best to inject them in a print mixed with your best colours (blues and pinks) or in an accessory (away from your face)

SOFT (Hair, eyes and skin are very similar tones)
You need to keep your citrus shades as light as possible, unless you have green eyes, when you can wear the stronger shades
