This Is The Colour Every ‘It’ Girl Is Wearing This Summer

Forget millennial pink - this summer, there's only one hue that the style set are repping and it might not be what you think: yellow (Grazia yellow, if you like). When the primary colour became a big talking point on the autumn/winter 2017 catwalks - with Coach, Jason Wu and Topshop showing shades of sherbet, neon and marigold - we weren't sure how quickly it would catch on - after all, it's notoriously difficult to wear, often washing people out.

But it seems our fears were unfounded as the front row has already found a way to make the tricky trend work IRL. We first noticed it when both Celine Dion and Karlie Kloss wore it for the recent Dior couture show, and then digging a little deeper on Instagram, we discovered that a lot of our favourite influencers and bloggers have already been wearing the shade.

The key, of course, is finding the right yellow for you. Egg yolk works well on everyone - think Michelle Williams in that Vera Wang Oscars dress from 2006 and Beyonce in her 'Hold Up' video - especially when paired with a strong red lip. A buttery hue - like Celine Dion's Dior leather - is great for warming up pale complexions, while brunettes can wear most shades of light yellow, as it doesn't contrast with their hair in the same way.
