RESORT to This: Hello Yellow

Here's lemon in your eye!

(Chris Benz keeps it cool as a tall glass of lemonade)

Resort collections have been bursting with juicy citrus and sweet buttery yellows and I couldn't be happier (personal bias since yellow's my favorite color)

(Two trends at once: Lemon chiffon and a bright over-sized tote at Bottega Veneta)

Over the past month (Resort is a leisurely affair with designers presenting their collections over a much wider window of time than the 2 big Weeks) everyone from classic labels like Chanel and Giambattista Valli...

(Chanel, why must you remind me that I could be eating cake right now?!)

to youthful downtown designers like Proenza Schouler and Chris Benz have displayed the myriad of ways yellow is a fresh, modern color that looks good on everyone

(Color blocking lemon yellow with black white and a darker goldenrod, Proenza Schouler keep with their tribal and 70's influences) 

(Preppy 50's sweater girl style at Lela Rose)

(Asian influenced silk and prints at Preen in a rich topaz-y yellow)

(This mixed media paneled dress/coat was a personal fave from a strong show by Giambattista Valli)

(Yellow's for the dudes too as shown at Burberry)

If you're worried of looking jaundicey, perhaps the most efficacious way to utilize yellow is as an accent

(Versace's yellow purse pops against a graphic black and white sports-influenced look)
