SUNSHINE YELLOW

You may find it hard to believe from this image, but I am something of a chromophobe: I am terrified of wearing colour. This season I have decided to get over it with some immersion therapy. That’s right, I’m going head-to- toe in this season’s hottest hue: striking yellow.

FAR FROM SUBTLE

The catwalks told me to do it. It’s not like there was merely a hint of this colour, a handbag here, a shoe there. No, the runways were drenched in it. The biggest names in the business, from Moschino to Max Mara, sent models down the runway in pieces that looked like they were made of sunshine. I have followed their lead with a loud linen suit from Mint Velvet.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

You may not want to wear it top to bottom, but it does make styling easy. If a co-ord, such as the one I’m wearing here, is too intimidating, start with a dress — I love the simplicity of the Mango design, below. Or try a swimsuit like the Melissa Odabash one-piece in our shapewear line-up (on pages 36-7), which is an easy way to introduce the colour to your wardrobe.

YEAR-ROUND CHEER

If you would prefer a more gentle exposure, then dip your toe in with an accessory.

I dare you to do it with this season’s must-have bucket hat, but if you want a safer option, try the panelled chain-handle bag from Charles Keith, below. Guaranteed to cheer you up all year round.
