Wherever you are in the world, and whatever the weather is doing, yellow will bring some sunshine into your closet!

The New York runways, in particular, were all about bold shades of yellow for SS18. Then, the spotlight was thrust onto yellow again when Amal Clooney opted for yellow for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Here’s some yellow inspiration for you from the stylish women of #40plusstyle.


Very Amal Clooney! Yellow is a great shade if you have a summer wedding to attend. Here, rather than top to toe yellow, it is combined with a brown fascinator.

A lesson in pattern mixing! While leopard print may be a pattern, it works as a neutral so goes with most looks. Here, it is combined with gold, florals and yellow.

Why opt for just one primary color when you can choose four? This rainbow dress needs nothing more than a pair of sunglasses to accessorize!
