And it was all yellow

Yellow is the perfect summer colour. It has been proven that it makes you feel happier, and it looks absolutely amazing in the sunshine. Not only does it remind us of flowers, ice lollies and the sun itself, but it’s right on trend for spring/summer 2012. It was seen on the catwalk at the Burberry Prorsum, Elie Saab and Sass & Bide shows last September, and you can now find a great selection here at House of Fraser!


Twenty and counting

Skater dresses are still number one this summer and this AX Paris crochet dress adds something new to the design. Throw on a cute pair of sandals like this gorgeous Carvela pair and a statement tote such as this nautical inspired bag by Therapy. Don’t miss out the jewellery potential either – Pandora has a wide array of charms such as this season-appropriate silver and yellow sun charm.


Thirty and flirty

Create a chic and unique outfit perfect for a casual weekend. These Biba jeans are absolutely beautiful, and are great for colour blocking or adding colour into an outfit. Mary Portas knows a thing or two about fashion, and this boxy tee is great to wear tucked in or un-tucked for different looks. The Jaegar Hampton bag is generous in size and it great for everyday use! If the weather is overcast or the evening gets chilly then throw on this amazing Barbour quilted jacket which will bring sunshine when the sun’s gone in!


Fifty and fabulous

Dressing more maturely doesn’t mean you have to stay clear of the trends! A paler yellow tone is youthful yet complimentary for a mature complexion. The Alexon pleat dress mixes a contemporary beautiful shade of yellow with a classic style. Wear with a neutral cardigan for the day or match this Minuet Petite bolero for the evening. The Radley wedges are perfect for the summer and add a touch of height, and add some pattern to your outfit with the Dickins & Jones spot silk scarf.


Beauty essentials

Yellow doesn’t have to stop at clothes and accessories! The Bellapierre shimmer powder can be combined with any cosmetic to add colour to your complexion and is the ultimate all-in-one mineral make up product. Nails Inc’s Notting Hill Carnival polish is a pure pastel toned polish which adds an extra detail to your outfit. Bring colour and fragrance into your home with the Acqua Di Parma candle which is made with the beauty house’s signature perfume.
