Autumn Winter 16 Trends: Canary Yellow

One of the key colourways for AW16 is yellow. Celebrity Stylist Nicky Hambleton-Jones talks you through some key yellow item ideas to inject into your wardrobe......


One of the key colourways coming through for Autumn/Winter 2016 is yellow. Moving on from the neon yellows and the pops of neon we saw for Spring/Summer to more of a canary yellow with a bit of mustard and ochre thrown in. It's warm, it's a great way to lift up a complexion and really spruce up a dark Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

Mustard Knit

Starting off with this mustard knit from Warehouse. This is a great piece to incorporate into your Autumn/Winter wardrobe. Very easy, with lovely, slight detailing on the sleeve, texturised throughout the print, and great with a pair of jeans - any colour jean or even tucked into a skirt. For those who don't like wearing the polo neck, another key item for this season, a high neck is a great way, another alternative option for you. So an easy way to incorporate a bit of mustard yellow into your wardrobe this season.

Ochre Blouse

This blouse brings in a bit more of the ochre tones of yellow and we see some of the pleating coming through from Spring/Summer. A bit of the quilting effect again, texturising that's also hot for this season, but really strong on that warmer ochre tone of yellow. So good for the dark complexions, great again with a pair of trousers or tucked into a skirt. It's very flattering and with the plunging ‘V', will suit most body shapes.

Canary Yellow Coat

Your coat is the big investment we make every season. Why not go really bright and bold this Autumn/Winter with this amazing Canary yellow coat. I love it. It's going to spruce up any Autumn/Winter wardrobe and great layered with more darker neutrals like black and navy, and greys look fantastic with this - it's a real show stopper. You're not going to walk into a room unnoticed in something like this. And because it's got the single lapel and the single button, it's very flattering for most body shapes and the long line makes it easy along all age groups. It's a great piece to introduce for the brave enough this Autumn/Winter.

Print Dress

Some people find wearing a block colour quite intimidating so for those of you who want to nod to the trend but don't want to completely embrace a colour trend, I've chosen this animal print dress that has a nod to the Ochre and the mustard tones of this season mixed in with an animal print with the bright pops of pink. It's floaty, feminine, and very wearable for all body shapes and all ages and it's a great way to take on a trend.

Canary Yellow Pencil Skirt

For those of you feel that yellow as a colour doesn't suit your complexion, choose it in a skirt or a trouser option because then you don't have to worry about it being close-up to your face. Here I've got a fabulous canary yellow pencil skirt. And we're seeing a lot of pencil skirts coming through onto the high-street this season. Going for it in a bold, block colour just injects colour into a different part of your body and it's easy to blend it in with this season's classic knits, polo necks, navy blues, tailored jackets.

It's a great way to inject some colour in an easy way. So if you're not sure about a block colour, opt for it in a skirt or a trouser options this season and this will certainly get your wardrobe rocking for Autumn/Winter 2016.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
