Stylist Breid McDaid shines a light on spring's brightest trend - Yellow

ASOS Mini Dress With Frill Detail €42.67

It’s almost time for Easter egg hunts and the consumption of copious amounts of guilt-free chocolate, and the age old debate whether pubs should be opened or closed on Good Friday.

Along with all of the above comes the introduction of the traditional colour associated with the holiday. Similarly, with St. Patrick’s Day, I loved the fact that as a child I attained the free pass to choose something ‘yellow’ to mark the significance of Easter Sunday. Whether it came in the form of a dress, top, skirt or even hair accessory, I was delighted to adorn the sunshine shade in some form or other.

Yellow is a colour associated with positivity, enthusiasm and vibrancy. It can instantly lift a person’s mood, similarly to the effects of an unanticipated bout of sunshine in Ireland. Who wouldn’t want to inject these sort of vibes into their summer wardrobe in some form?

Summer fashion is a time for adding vibrant splashes of colour, being playful with your style and simply having fun with it. From canary yellow to mustard, to pastel hues, there’s no doubt you’ll find a shade you’re comfortable and happy to wear.

Granted, most shades of yellow are not for the faint-hearted, and if you feel you’re not overly eager at the prospect then why not subtly introduce a pop of the vibrant shade through the addition of accessories?!

When choosing what colour palettes to best compliment the colour, my personal favourites would have to include dark denim, navy, grey, white and silver. If you’re feeling that little bit more adventurous, bright yellow combined with royal blue makes a fabulous colour contrast, one that has proven popular amongst occasion wear ensembles.

Whatever shade you decide to choose, have fun with it, that’s what the sunshine shade philosophy is all about!
