  • I must admit I was a little bit dubious when the first murmurs about Gen-Z yellow being the new millenial pink started. Sure, it was all over the catwalk at fashion week, from Jil Sander and Versace to Tibi and Balenciaga, but I wasn’t sure the bright hue would translate well IRL.

    But then Amal Clooney wore that incredible Stella McCartney dress to the Royal wedding, earning herself the best dressed wedding guest title, which Meghan Markle no doubt took inspo from with this Brandon Maxwell yellow dress while on official duty recently.

    And now according to, some of their top selling items for SS18 have been yellow dresses, from high-street retailers like Topshop, ASOS and YesStyle, as well as luxe options from Moda Operandi and Revolve.
