Wear it in Combinations of Monotone or Prints

The beauty of the duo lies in the right mix. Just a hint of the other would accentuate the chosen prime colour. If you choose gray, a dash of yellow will look stunning but if you choose yellow as the prime colour you need more than just a dash of gray. It has to be visible enough to create the right look.
A gray lower can be highlighted with a bright yellow top. A jumpsuit in gray gets accentuated with a bright printed yellow scarf. However, a yellow lower will need more than just a gray top to tone down. The right accessories will play a key role if you choose to go with yellow in lowers.

Designer Jattinn Kochar says, “Yellow is my personal favourite. And I love wearing this shade of Mélange. I like how it’s neutral, it goes with light and dark colours both and it suits every skin colour and any age group. This my 31st year in the industry and I wanted to use the elements that I had used earlier. I did this melange some 25 years back. This year it’s cotton knit lycra fabric, it’s great fit, it’s young and modern and at the same time it’s classic. Also, yellow for me is a sunshine colour. For me, it denotes a new beginning thus motivating me to do things better.”
