How to Wear

Deepika Padukone proves this colour looks amazing on Indian skin

How to find the right yellow for your skin tone

  • The 2017 Golden Globes gave us many gifts, including a rousing speech by Meryl Streep and another reason to fall in love with Ryan Gosling. What it also inspired in us was a fresh appreciation for the colour, yellow. 

    While many (and there were many) celebrities opted for the blingy route with metallic fabulousness in abundance, many chose to stand out in various shades of the sunshiney hue.

    Viola Davis wore a one-shoulder canary yellow Michael Kors Collection gown while Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams waltzed in wearing an Ong-Oaj Pariam number. Showing off the effect yellow has on sun-tanned skin, Emily Ratajkwoski picked a pastel yellow satin Reem Acra gown for the red carpet. Reese Witherspoon matched her blonde mane to her Atelier Versace gown.

    Deepika Padukone proved she's on top of all the trends, attending InStyle magazine's after-party in a bright yellow Ralph Lauren gown, a major departure from her usually safe colour choices. Blackish actress Tracee Ellis Ross in her chartreuse Paule Ka gown gave us another shade to fall in love with.

    If you can't wait to test-drive this trend, use our guide (above) for the best way to wear yellow for Indian skin tones. 


  • Fair tones

    The brighter the yellow, the better. A canary hue, like the one Maisie wore on the red carpet, should be your go-to yellow at all times as a darker shade could make you look washed out.

  • Wheatish tones

    Grey is not the only colour with 50 shades, a warmer tone like mango, butterscotch or chartreuse will play up beautifully against your skin tone. 

  • Dark tones

    Bust fashion myths by dozen by wearing yellow this summer. Pick an ochre yellow or a mustard shade to get over your unfounded fear of all things yellow and look like a legit queen.
