“Sunshine daisies, butter mellow…” – the colour du jour is neon yellow

Hello world,
It seems I’m not the only one bewitched by the colour yellow, as one look at the spring summer collections that were gracing their way down the catwalks shows the designers had the same thing on their minds.
But truly, could you ever hate something as bright, sunny and cheerful as yellow? Orange is a hard colour to wear; it detests fake tan and can turn you into an oompa loompa or one of the cast members of Jersey Shore. Blue, no matter how wonderful can make you look washed out and frankly as pretty as the royal blue tones are, they’re not exactly ideal for a fresh springtime look. Pastels and prints are not for everyone, so the only thing left is yellow.
And how wonderful it is!
You have a wide array of choice in the colour; from the bright neons seen as Christopher Kane, Pierre Cardin and Tommy Hilfiger, to the sunshine tones at Jil Sander, Paul & Joe, Giambattista Valli and Tibi, to the prints seen at Prada, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, to the pastel tones at Chanel, Giles and Issey Miyake and the orange shades at Gucci, Nanette Lepor and Michael Kors.

Neon yellow also seems to have made it’s way into the fashion magazines, for I spotted this image from Harper’s Bazaar UK this week.

Below I’ve compiled some of my favourite yellow shoes on offer from the designers. I only hope the high street will jump on this band wagon soon as this is one fun colour for springtime.
