With the popularity of the 14 times oscar nominated La La Land featuring Emma Stone twirling in a yellow dress, the internet search for yellow has gone through the roof.
The yellow dress featured was designed by costume designer Mary Zophres. She found the fabric in a cheap fabric store and over printed it with the black flower detail. The retro style makes it classic and timeless, which may be a reason for its broad appeal.
On the High Street
In this dreary grey winter weather we’ve been having of late it’s no surprise that yellow has become so popular. Injecting a little zest into our wardrobes is good for us. Yellow is the colour of mental intellect and clarity. It can help overcome fear and depression chasing out the winter blues. More yellow, that’s what I say!
I’ve searched the high street and here are some of my favourite yellow bursts of inspiration. Follow link to buy now.
