Yellow is a colour that I’ve spent swathes of my life avoiding in my wardrobe, for 2 main reasons. The first being that yellow was the colour of my school shirt that was hideously paired with a brown skirt. I know! Positively dashing isn’t it? The other was that being the only “oriental” in my class subjected me to lovely names such as “yellow” and “chicken oriental”.

Years and countless rude gestures to the school memories later, I cannot remember the names of my name callers but I LOVE YELLOW. I especially like the fluorescent yellow most comfortably accepted in sportswear or dare I say it, a building site!
