Hey Fashionistas! It’s been a while since we zoomed our fashion lenses on a trend and with celebrities wearing yellow blazers and high street stores stocking them, there couldn’t be a better time to start dishing out on this style.

Bright colours are huge this S/S 12 season but it’s yellow that’s stealing the fashion spotlight for its stand-out effect (it was a popular one on street stylistas at LFW). Designers such as Jason Wu, Raffian and Peter Som all found a place for this hue at their catwalk shows and now you can join in by wearing a yellow blazer! Take cues from Kim Kardashian and Beyonce Knowles.

Kim Kardashian wears a vibrant yellow blazer over a white blouse, black leggings accessorised with a Balenciaga bag and Christian Louboutin courts while Beyonce opts for cool-off-duty look with a similar vibe but paired a cream blouse and art deco shoes by the same designer.

Here are some RV style tips for you when you’re rocking a yellow blazer:

  • This look is best suited with classic tones such as white and black.
  • Keep the attention on the jacket by wearing dark denim or leggings. Skinnies will give you a more pulled-together finish to your outfit than boot-cuts!
  • Steer clear of patterned scarves instead opt for a statement necklace.
  • Step up your fashion game by rocking a yellow blazer with cobalt blue. The contrast will score you fashion points with onlookers. FYI: I spied Kourtney Kardashian in this hot spring combination this week!

If you want to dabble in this style, head straight over to Zara, TopShop and H&M. Trust me ladies, you need this in your S/S wardrobe.
