Dark yellow dress with floral pattern by Dries Van Noten
Yellow is usually associated with lightness, brightness and almost inevitably with the summer months. However for the fall-winter 2019/2020 collections, designers have decided to embrace the darker side of this color, ambar tones which give an interesting alternative to the usual sombre hues that tend to characterize the coldest months of the year.
If you want to use the color to stand out but aren't ready to wear bright yellow or neon – which have also been suggested for this season – then these darker tones are just the ticket. And it's interesting to stay with the culinary references: on one side is butterscotch, with its brown hues and on the other mustard with its orange undertones. Check out our ideas for incorporating this fashion-forward color into your wardrobe.
The golden hour
You can always count on a good dosis of yellow in the collections of Dries Van Noten and add to that the floral patterns which reflect his love of gardening. These two constants can be found in the floaty dress above, whose floral pattern moves gracefully along the fabric – like the shadow of a rose bush.
The ambar tone of this loose-fitting, asymmetrical neckline by Oscar De La Renta is an obvious nod to the jewel tone trend that this time of year is famous for. The rich velvet that it's made of gives off a warm glow that will make you the veritable belle of the ball.
