I was recently leafing through one of those special editions of VOGUE featuring the spring 2019 runway collections and was surprised at what I saw. From vibrant magenta, green, bright blue at Balenciaga to rich jewel-toned royal blue, teal and mustard at Givenchy - it’s clear that anything goes for S19. Colours and textures (like velvet and leather at Saint Laurent) we’d typically associate with fall are now popping up all year round and I’m okay with that. One thing is unanimous though and that’s the return of yellow. Seems like every fashion house has a preferred shade and I’m living for it.
I’ve been on a bit of a plaid binge recently and I haven’t been able to find the right pieces till now. I fell in love with the yellow plaid of this Robert Rodriquez blazer immediately. Upon learning it was actually part of a suit, I got excited and added both pieces to my shopping cart right away. I like how it’s so unique and works beautifully as a set but also as separates (as per my most recent outfit post where I’m wearing the jacket with a black hoodie, denim Alexander Wang vest and a pair of Levi’s.)
Nothing makes me happier than buying something I truly admire. Knowing that yellow is THE colour for spring 2019 is just the icing on the cake.
