13 mellow yellow buys for spring

The trend guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Last Updated on May 5, 2021

Mellow yellow brightened up the runway for SS21, with designers Miu Miu, Altuzarra and Salvatore Ferragamo just a handful of those inspiring us to try the trend – and now we’re hooked.

Alongside ultimate grey, ‘illuminating yellow’ is in fact one of Pantone’s Colours of the Year for 2021. Instead of the garish yellows that have come before it, this shade is pale and much more wearable for almost all skin tones.

In fact, Who What Wear brand it a new neutral and encourage fashion followers to wear it as they would white, black or beige. Worn head-to-toe, layered or just as one element to a look, anything goes.

To inspire you, we’ve pulled together outfit inspo from our favourite influencers as well as 13 mellow yellow buys available on the high street right now.

How to wear yellow in 2021

If in doubt, a trouser suit is an easy way to wear pale yellow. Team with trainers for a casual vibe.

Wear a chic shirt dress with white shoes or boots for a spring-ready look.

We love this yellow dress worn with rectangle shades and a colourful bucket hat.

For a maximal look, layer a colourful sweater vest over your pale yellow piece and add pastel accessories.

Monikh shows us how to layer pale yellow with this casual ensemble.
