One of the easiest ways to freshen up your wardrobe for Summer is trying out the season’s biggest color trends. For 2019, yellow was one of the most popular colors to go down designer runways (see Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Sies Marjan for a few of my favorites from New York Fashion Week) from soft shades of banana and lemon to saturated tones like butter and mango.
If you’re anything like me, ultrabright outfits can feel intimidating, but I’ve found Summer to always be the best time to experiment with a colorful look — there’s something about the season’s warm weather and relaxed attitude that make me feel so much more playful than usual. With vibrant shades from neon green to highlighter pink and tangy tangerine trending big time, yellow feels the most wearable to me, especially warmer tones that flatter a range of complexions.
Since punchy colors like yellow aren’t always the easiest to wear, save for an occasion like a wedding guest outfit or party where you’re craving a standout look, affordable pieces make shopping the trend a lot easier (despite my piqued interest and zeal for a new trend, I’m always nervous to invest too heavily right off the bat).
For June, the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s is filled with a range of affordable yellow pieces, from a comfortable and flattering linen dress to a lightweight blazer-and-shorts set that’s the perfect Summer work outfit or occasion look. There’s even a range of modern basics, from a tie-front striped top to a comfy V-neck tee and adorable miniskirt (with pockets!).
If you are the color-inclined type or need a little extra convincing to try out a new shade, ahead, see how I took some of the chicest yellow POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s pieces for a spin. If you’re sold on the yellow trend, shop my outfits head to toe (including the on-trend accessories) as well as a few more affordable yellow pieces that are perfect for Summer.
