Sunshine state of mind: 10 pieces to boost your mood

Sunshine state of mind: 10 pieces to boost your mood

Egg yolk, citron, maize, lemon, sunshine, chartreuse, sunglow and aureolin. There are a lot of words and names for the colour yellow. Citrus shades had a remarkably strong presence on this year’s SS runways and the street style crowd have wasted no time in making this giddy confectionary colour their own.

Whether it’s exciting and fresh athleisure at Anya Hindmarch, a punch of unexpected gold at Area, or a juggernaut of buttercup yellow at Krizia, wearing these sunshine shades is both sartorially uplifting and mood-boosting. Mild yellow sunglasses from Chimi, below, will add a charming subtlety to your look, if you’re not ready to fully invest in yellow garb head-to-toe. Or make a siesta entrance in yellow polka dots from Topshop, below. If you’re thinking of braving a burst of lemon this year, here are ten gorgeous and bright pieces worthy of a spot in your wardrobe.
