Trend SS13: yellow

Elrico wants to see me wearing more colour. Given his current status as stylist on Top Billing, I’m keen on his advice to go all chameleon; starting with bright yellow as seen on the Spring Summer 2013 runways.

Now before you blondes go all whiny on me on how yellow strips the colour from your skin blah blah whatevs, think again. Hints of daffodil and honeysuckle will also carry you beautifully into the season.
