If you add one color trend into your wardrobe this fall, make it the bright, but not quite neon, shade of lemon yellow. The energetic, happy-feeling hue emerged as one of pre-fall’s top trends from brands like Versace, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Bottega Veneta. It proved it has staying power through the fall/winter 2020 runways, as the citrusy tone could be easily plucked from the collections at Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Fendi, Eckhaus Latta, and Coperni, just to name a few.
Optimistic by nature, this standout shade might not be your typical neutral colorway, but lemon is offered in almost every fall wardrobe staple imaginable. Think juicy midiskirts to style with a fresh pair of knee-high boots, or a zesty turtleneck knit just in time for seasonal layering. The hue has even squeezed itself onto a classic double-breasted blazer, and on a pair of polished trousers too. Those who want to test the trend could start with earrings or handbags for just a small drop of color.
We could all undoubtedly use an extra dose of positivity this season by way of a cheery pop of color. So if you’re going to squeeze in one color or trend to your fall wardrobe, it might as well be one as happy as lemon. Shop 16 juicy finds below.
