Yellow Fever in Fashion

Yellow Fever in Fashion

Yellow Fever?!? This is the good kind — lots and lots of yellow.  I read somewhere recently that the stand-by LBD (little black dress) has become LYD for the summer.  The “must have” color is yellow!

As with any “must have” fashion color, the key is not to overdo.  If you wear a yellow dress, leave the yellow bag and shoes at home.  If you want those accessories, then save your yellow pants for another day.  We have some great yellows in stock right now for a quick nod to fashion for the next couple months.

From our Bistro Collection, you’ll find a Bright Lemon  Twill,  a “not quite” neon yellow great for shorts or skorts.  Some have used it for a trendy trench.  For a rich textural fabrication, take a look at Forsythia, a wonderful viscose/linen blend which will work up in a jacket, lined dress, or a jacket dress combo a la Jackie O.  For the complete bumble bee statement, mix it with Blacktop, the same fabrication in black.

Softly colored, gently airy with rich texture!

If you like your yellow a bit softer, but rich in texture you can try our Fettucine cotton texture from Italy.  This soft lemon yellow has depth of character with a nod to the seasonal color trend.

If you hurry there’s still yardage available in Summer Song — a wonderful cotton voile with a soft lemon yellow floral print.  Great for big shirt cover up or a quick sleeveless number for warm days and eves.  Finally for an earthy interpretation of this color, check out Amazonia, a richly mottled rayon batik with bright sunshine peeking through the muddy jungle tones.

Whatver your summer mood, we hope you’ll make sunshine yellow a part of the day, both literally and figuratively!

    I purchase the lemon curd fabric in Jan. I’m now making it a McCalls pattern. The color is a wonderful golden yellow.. A color that is easier to wear for most complexions (I’m very fair). I’ve washed the fabric and embroidered a orential pattern on the midriff for this garmet. I’ve lined the entire dress in yellow silk,.
