I have to admit, yellow is a colour I would usually avoid at all costs. Clothes are usually coloured in such a bright yellow that it’s draining on my skin or a pale yellow that is…well that’s just draining too.
These yellow cropped, wide leg dream jeans from Topshop seem to be a winner for me. I’m loving the pastel, lemony shade they are in. If this colour was in a top I’m not sure how well it would work but since the jeans are quite far away from my face, there is no draining effect. After fifteen to thirty minutes spent contouring your face you wouldn’t want anything draining that out, amarite?
I saw them on the Topshop Personal Shopping Snapchat account (if you don’t already follow, you need to. It’s great for outfit inspo of all things Topshop) and immediately ordered them online! If you are wondering about sizing when ordering online I would recommend going a size down in high waisted items from Topshop. These are a six, whereas I would usually wear an eight in Topshop. If anything they are still a tad roomy; not a problem when you love a good belt like me though.
When I bought these it was the height of Summer (if that’s even a thing in Scotland, sigh) and I didn’t even think ahead into the future about how I was going to style them for Autumn, or if that was even a possibility. However, now I’m so excited to wear them with ankle boots and cosy winter coats. As far as transitional pieces go they are right at the top of the leader board in my closet right now. Summery colour, yet warm enough for that rainy British weather. Ideal.
