Yellow isn’t a colour that you typically see everyone wearing. People see it as bright, loud, and in-your-face. It’s a bold colour, and most consider it something you wouldn’t wear if trying to play it safe.
No one other than professional catwalk strutters should ever attempt head-to-toe yellow. Consider your outfit well though, and yellow - the colour of the mind and intellect, associated with optimism and a cheerful disposition - isn't so difficult after all.
Here are my style tips on how to filter yellow into your outfits without screaming “Look at Me”?:
Yellow is a happy colour, and allows you to show off your playful side, for a standout Racing Fashion look. Being a bright colour you don’t need much of it to give your outfit just that bit of extra flair.
The easy way to show you are au fait with this fun colour is to use for the accessories only: a cheering nod to the sunny shade.Like its close realative green, yellow compliments just about any other color in the rainbow, so is the perfect colour pop. It can be used as an accent to navy, green, deep purple, burgundy, cobalt blue, teals, turquoise and, of course, grey and browns.
As a wedding guest choose paler, lemon shades. The more discrete yellows pair well with silver, cream and whites, to create a chic antique feel. Choose these pale and interesting yellows for occasions, when bright yellow might feel too brash.
The Coast Floral Jacquard Whistan Dress with beautiful floral embroidery, has been a popular dress this season, and one I’ve had many customers ask me to arrange headwear for. For each of them I have paired with a Silver Hat and accessories, adding contrast back into the outfit, and keeping the yellow knocked back instead of “in your Face”

Meeting yellow halfway is playful, and means it doesn’t need to be worn near the face, where people fear it is unflattering.
Navy offers a nautical colour option. White plays well with yellow for Spring / Summer, with the white softening the bright yellows. Mustard and Caramel tones are a marriage made in chromatic heaven for winter, when you could wear a Mustard coat over a Tan dress, and accessorise in any mix of wintery browns.
For Spring / Summer Racing Fashion wear with a harmonising colour - like the Fuchsia in the example below. The yellow can stand out, yet it harmonizes well with the outfit.
