Ever since Phillip Lim sashayed a model down his Spring Summer 2015 runway in a pair of sunshine yellow pants and a tiny broderie anglaise crop top, we thought of taking on the challenge to style this daring hue of a pant all year-round.
First of all in order to keep the yellow pant current, pick one up in a cigarette cut which will elongate the leg and take you seamlessly from summer to fall. We love Zara’s version in a tailored mid-rise cut, flattering most figures and its colour falling between mango and egg-yolk.
Take on summer in a sports-inspired look for day in a white mesh top by H&M studio, a white bikini underneath and a bucket bag in a shade of navy or blue. We loved this sporty version by & Other Stories in navy blue and accents of neon orange and grass green. We kept footwear plain and simple with a pair of white Chuck Taylor Converse shoes. This look was photographed by the very talented Christina Leth, follow her on Instagram @Christina.leth.
The second look we put together is for a day at the office, if you work in media, fashion or a creative profession, this look will be sure to get you noticed and screams self-confidence. Add a touch of freshness and seriousness with a blue collared shirt and a grey top layered over it and a crystal-necklace (this one by JCrew). Simply wear with a practical large tote like the Chloe Baylee and a pair of grey court heels and take this outfit from office to early evening cocktails effortlessly.
As winter comes, make your yellow pants work extra harder for you with a tone-on-tone approach of cream and nudes: we wore this cable-knit sweater by Theory with a pair of nude mid-heel court shoes by Saint Laurent (from 2013) and a zip taupe satchel which we had found years ago at Galeries Lafayette. Just add a camel or taupe coat on top for a head-turning winter look.
