Just when I thought I had found out the style of the Duchess of Sussex, she goes and throws a hook into the work. You see, the Royal was busy wearing nothing but nudity, which meant everyone would be their "thing" from now on. But on Thursday night, the yellow dress by Meghan Markle went down, and now I do not know what to think.
The 36-year-old participated in the Commonwealth Youth Reception with Prince Harry. Crafted in a gaudy yellow style by American designer Brandon Maxwell, Markle provided the irresistible £ 830 look with a pair of bare Manolo Blahnik heels and diamond earrings by Adina Reyter.
While the royal family is known to wear yellow outfits Occasionally, this is the first time that Markle has been seen in such a bright look. Maybe she tried to honor her LA roots (the US had just celebrated Independence Day). Or perhaps she was happy to be the center of attention, considering the Queen ̵
What you may not realize is that the colors you wear each have a significant meaning. This is especially true for people like royals or celebrities who choose their outfits carefully, knowing that millions of people are watching.
Yellow is a particularly tricky one. A 2011 poll by Dulux Paints found that yellow is the least favored color of people and only 5 percent of respondents admit that they like the hue. I totally understand it. Yellow is one of the most eye-catching colors, which may cause some people to shy away from it.
However, the hue also has many positive connotations. Psychologist Carole Kanchier explained the importance of wearing yellow to the Huffington Post. Their belief that the color "is associated with happiness, freedom, optimism and mental concentration" helps to understand why Markle could have chosen Banana Shadow.
The Duchess has been in the royal family for almost two months now; a lot of time to get used to how things work and feel comfortable in their new role in dealing with the public. Where she was perhaps a bit nervous to express herself before, it seems that Markle now finds it more comfortable and free to spread her tailor wings. And who can be surprised – she seems to have taken everything incredibly well.
Apparently our affection for yellow comes from childhood. Pantone Color Institute color specialist and lead director, Leatrice Wiseman, told CNN that people of all ages associate color with the sun, resulting in a connection with warmth and happy memories:
"Give each child a box the crayons and grab the yellow colored pencil, and in the upper right corner or left corner always the sun ball appears. "
While it is true that society associates yellow with all joy, it is also clear in My experience, that many women do not like to wear the color. Ask the average woman to pick the shade she's least likely to buy, and yellow will pop up, I guarantee it.
But why is that? It seems as if it has something to do to make the ubiquitous story that each of us can only "pull off" certain colors. Well, maybe women should just wear the color they like. When yellow tickles your imagination, go free and explore it. If you're really worried about dipping your toe, try buying an accessory or garment that has an unobtrusive yellow print to help you get started. Before you know it, you will be ready.
Hats off to Markle for championing the color and proving that a simple dress can radiate joy and confidence.
