Yellow is the new red!

Remember how in the past, magazines and style articles advised you (for many seasons in a row) that a red handbag, or a pair of sexy red stilettos can change completely a, otherwise plain, outfit? Well, red is still hot (and it will always be), but yellow is bright! And it seems that this FW we need a little brightness in our life.

I must confess that I've never gave to much credit to yellow clothes or accessories. But i always associated this color with pale green and white clothes, and i never though of wearing strong yellow, like the one that colors the clothes and, well, basically everything, this fall.

I like very much the way mini yellow handbag from Celine brightens up this purple, pale outfit.

As you can see from the picture above, strong yellow works well with many colors. Kylie combines an yellow babydoll coat with a marine-inspired outfit, and the yellow skinny belt is an inspired accessory for the deep-blue top, but the bright color is sure looking at its best with black.

The Miu Miu satin clutch above gives structure and elegance to an all-black outfit, but you can also wear strong yellow as the main color, with only some subtle black accessories for contrast, as pictured bellow.

Another way to wear it, is combining with the wild prints. Doesn't the Tibi shift dress bellow look just amazing?

And the yellow trend does not apply only to clothes, it extends to interior decorations and furniture alike. Notice how the yellow square thing on the wall, and the yellow flowers on the table simply enlighten the entire room!

What do you think: yellow as the main color in an outfit, or delicate, subtle touches of strong yellow among accessories?
