The mustard trend – love it or hate it? Personally, I love yellow in any shape or form, and am delighted to see that it’s back in fashion, particularly for Spring 2018, worn both on and off the runway by celebrities and common folk alike. Here in London, though, it’s cold, windy and still very much winter. The daffodils are out already, though, so don’t hesitate to add some mustard to your wardrobe even though it’s still freezing. Goodness knows we need some bright mustard trousers in our lives while we deal with the grey weather.

I’d tone down this naturally warm colour with a cool grey cashmere jumper – it’s winter-appropriate and makes the colourful trousers more office-friendly too; tuck it in to highlight the lovely tie-waist of those bottoms. Adding the Summer Noon silk scarf around your neck will tie in the colour of the trousers, giving a high-end feel to the high-street look and adding colour near your face to bring the attention back up there. Wearing black or navy accessories with this outfit might seem natural, but I’d pair another extremely trendy colour with it – deep burgundy patent leather bag and low-heeled pointy-toe pumps. Minimal rose gold jewellery in the form of pearl earrings and delicate bracelet add the finishing touches.

The highlight of this outfit is the deep yellow or mustard – the reddish tones in the silk scarf (available here) tie in the burgundy shoes and bag, and the cool grey jumper takes the brightness down a notch, making it possible to wear to work. Wear your hair simply, and you’re ready to go. Don’t forget to throw on a warm coat for the journey to work, though! Stay warm until Spring actually gets here.
