Dopamine shopping guide: How to squeeze the lemon drizzle trend into your wardrobe

Lemon drizzle yellow is the colour for spring. Dopamine dressing is at an all-time high and this bright colour is here to stay.

Seen on the Chloe, Dior, Givenchy, Loewe and Max Mara runways, this citrusy trend will stand out and brighten your day and spring wardrobe, especially on the colder rainy days. Dior showcased lemon yellow separates including shorts and mini dresses while Givenchy featured a pastel yellow tulle skirt. The colour has also been very prominent with street fashion in Paris and Milan.

There are plenty of ways to wear this trend. Lemon yellow is fresh and darker yellows are exuberant.

Have fun with it, try different shades of yellow for a playful look or stick to one for a stylish monochrome outfit. Wearing a sunny yellow will make you happier and more confident.

Wear the colour head-to-toe with a bold yellow blazer or make a subtle statement with accessories, such as earrings or sunglasses. You could wear a yellow dress styled with matching heels or a lemon blouse with a tailored blazer and trousers for seasonal layering. Alternatively a yellow bag, sunglasses or necklace will make any outfit pop.

All shades of yellow from pollen, pastel to honey will fill you with joy and make you as happy as a lemon.
