Bright bursts of yellow awaken summer wardrobes.
While the old adage “add a pop of color” has become cliché in the fashion world, never have its implications been so bold—or so in demand. With Valentino, Saint Laurent and Proenza Schouler all offering up their own versions of eclectic color by way of near-neon handbags, one can only assume that snatching up a piece (or two) of the hue is of the highest style priority. And why shouldn’t it be? In terms of color psychology, the timing of yellow’s emergence on the fashion scene couldn’t be better. The hue has long been associated with cheerfulness and optimism—a natural pairing for summer’s annual renewal of all things sunny.
