Move over burgundy, spiced orange and earthy brown, there’s a new colour that’s set to dominate our autumn style – and it’s inspired by the zingiest shade in the paintbox.
Yellow might not seem like the easiest trend to rock year-round, but with a few simple style cues, it can easily become the hardest working hue in your wardrobe.
If you’re already reaching for your lemon blazer or dusting off your canary clutch bag, take note: This season’s trend is all about a delicious shade called ‘egg yolk’.
Richer than butterscotch, brighter than burnt orange and nudging into gold territory, egg yolk is surprisingly versatile shade that works for all skin tones – even those on the fair and freckly side.
On the AW19 catwalks, oeuf-inspired shades reigned supreme, from marigold evening gowns at Marc Jacobs and Off-White, to tailored trousers at Alexa Chung and sunny coats at Emilia Wickstead.
