We quizzed Lauren McCarthy, Violet Atkinson & Emily Whitlock who featured in our women’s summer edit, to get some tips on how to add that splash of colour into your wardrobe and what their fave looks were from the shoot!
Shop the edit and check out what the girls had to say.
Yellow is THE colour of summer! There were a lot of styles featuring yellow in the shoot, which was your favourite?
Lauren: Unsurprisingly, my favourite yellow item on the shoot was a pair of yellow Stussy bike shorts that Violet wore.
Violet: My favourite piece that I saw on the day was actually a shirt that Emily wore - it was a beautiful muted, custard yellow Wrangler tee with a darker yellow ‘Wrangler’ logo across the front.
Emily: I absolutely loved the look where we were all wearing yellow, it was such an edgy, sports luxe kind of vibe! We were wearing bike pants, bum bags, high socks and Converse, it was very 90’s!

Do you have any tips for anyone that isn’t ready to dive deep into yellow but is keen to add a splash to their outfit?
Lauren: First and foremost, before you think of yellow as a bright and invasive colour, remember that there are countless shades of it that can suit your wardrobe. Another big trend on the SS19 runways this year was ‘sunshine shades’ - varying colours of yellow and orange. There are ways to introduce yellow to your wardrobe whilst staying subtle - tall socks paired with sneakers, nail polish or a pair of swimmers. Then you can begin to adventure into shirts, sunglasses, etc!
Violet: I think investing in a t-shirt such as the Wrangler tee is a perfect way! Incorporating a softer tone of a trend colour that you would not ordinarily wear is a nice way of getting it into your wardrobe without being too forceful with the colour (although, I literally own a head-to-toe bright yellow suit, so I am not complaining).
Emily: My advice would be to add a pop of colour with your accessories. I’m a huge advocate of adding accessories to add an extra element to an outfit. A cool pair of earrings, a headscarf, a belt, shoes or a bag to really lift a look and add colour without feeling like you’re going all out.
