Yes, you read it correct!!
In all its bright, cheerful, luscious, glorious splendor, yellow has taken over celebrity closets. Yellow has been one of the dominant colours of Indian summer. With bright gulmohars, cascading amalta blossoms and yellow bells exploding in cheerful shades of sunshine yellow along our avenues and gardens, it is difficult to stay away from the charm of this colour. This season, yellow has been the colour of choice for our favourite fashionistas as well. A shade that works beautifully with the Indian skin tone, it has been a serious fashion statement by everyone from Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor to Sara Ali Khan and even Katrina Kaif. Here is a quick style guide for all of you waiting to step out in THE colour of the season.

The thumb rule for wearing yellow is, don’t be afraid. Wear it confidently and enjoy the positive and happy vibes that the colour exudes. It works brilliantly on Indian skin tones – the same way gold flatters us.
Keep it matte and soft. Yellow works best when it does not overwhelm. So avoid the shiny, metallic textures and effects, especially during the day time.
Mono toned works better. Yellow is a bold colour and it will be kinder to you when you do not mix it with other colours, especially if you have a petite frame. Big bold multi coloured prints in yellow is best left to lanky models on the runway or the MET Gala.
Accessorize it right. Yellow can be a glorious canvas for all your fashion jewellery. Bring out your oxidized statement pieces – dramatic dangle and drop earrings, studded hoops, tassels in ombre shades or ethnic enameled jewellery that match your OOTD in subtle and intricate motifs.
Avoid gold on yellow. For obvious reasons. Which is why silver or colourful gemstones even oxidized jewellery work way better than that gold-on-gold looks. Unless of course you are a Hip Hop artiste.
