How to wear colour according to New York Fashion Week

Winter is on the way but that doesn’t mean you have to wave goodbye to your wardrobe’s brightest shades. Here’s how to wear colour according to the street style at New York Fashion Week.

A drop in the temperature – while as much as we like to try and forget about it, is inevitably on the horizon – tends to signal the arrival of a moodier colour palette. Upbeat summery colour palettes and bold prints are often put into hibernation for winter and replaced with inky shades of navy, grey and black.

But even though grey and gloomy weather might be just around the corner, it doesn’t mean that you have to start planning a wardrobe that’s going to mimic the impending winter weather. As all of our favourite street style stars in the northern hemisphere have reminded us at New York Fashion Week AW2021: dressing for cooler climes doesn’t have to be dull.

From electric pink to neon yellow and clashing out-there colours, there were plenty of bold hues spotted on the streets of New York this past week. With barely a hint of grey or black insight, the best street style fashion from the Big Apple has us rethinking our autumn wardrobes already.

How to Wear Yellow This Season

Love the vibrant colour but not sure how to pull it off? Here’s how to wear yellow.

Yellow might be one of those colours that have traditionally been thought of as tricky to wear. But considering the colour yellow is associated with creativity and happiness, it’s definitely a colour that we want to see more of in our wardrobe this season.

Here are our favourite tips for how to wear yellow this coming season.


If the thought of jumping in the deep end and embracing a head-to-toe canary yellow look puts you off the cheeriest of colours, start by working some yellow-toned accessories into your wardrobe.  Thinking about investing in some yellow arm candy? Our current pick is this vibrant little number by D LY P.

Whether it is a bold head-turning print or something slightly more understated, opting for a print in our favourite vibrant hue is a great way to wear yellow. Dainty florals prints in yellow are perfect for daywear and if you’re looking for something other than a little black dress for special occasions that might be in the calendar, turn to the runway for all the inspiration you need to wear yellow after the sun goes down.


Not sure whether you’re more of a pastel yellow or fluorescent yellow fan? Fortunately this season there’s an abundance of different shades of yellow coming through in current collections. If you’re still not sure where to start, think about picking a shade that will complement your skin tone. All shades of yellow will flatter darker skin tones, while medium and olive skin tones are better suited to piquant bright shades. If you’re on the fairer side you might want to start out with softer pastel hues.
