Positive Dressing: Sunshine State of Mind


Sunshine State of Mind


Step out for spring in our statement-making capsule collection - a trio of 70s-inspired corduroy pieces presented in the season’s most covetable shade

Sunshine Yellow Corduroy Flared Jeans and matching jacket with silk primroses


Sunshine lovers rejoice! Whether it calls to mind fields of swaying sunflowers, hazy summer afternoons, or scoops of zesty lemon sorbet, there’s no denying the mood-brightening magic of the colour yellow, and it just so happens to be one of the most sought-after shades this season. Take the springy, mimosa-hued separates spotted on the runway at Etro, the sun-splashed slip dresses at Alberta Ferretti, and the canary-toned trenches at Prada, who incidentally sent models sashaying through a space with a banana-bright backdrop. It’s at once empowering and playful; a joyful riposte to the long-drawn-out anguish of the past year. Call it manifesting, if you will; when it comes to ushering in a decidedly sunnier outlook, your wardrobe’s a stellar place to start.

Let the Sunshine In

In the spirit of putting a spring in your step, YOLKE’s brand spanking new Corduroy Suit is here to dial up the saturation. Crafted in Italian cotton-corduroy and presented in zingy sunshine yellow - the most nostalgia-inducing shade out there - our three-piece capsule collection taps into the bohemian inclinations of the free-spirited 70s. Delicate silk georgette frills on both the collar and cuffs lend a subtly romantic feel to our button-down Belle Blouse, which is cut for a satisfyingly close fit, while the Bow Jean - designed to sit high on the waist and finished with a leg-lengthening bootcut flare - could well have been plucked straight from the set of That ‘70s Show. Last but by no means least, the beautifully tailored Hilary Jacket completes the line-up - with tortoiseshell-toned buttons and a smooth ivory lining, it’s guaranteed to buoy your mood at a moment’s notice - consider it a ray of sartorial sunshine.

Ways to Wear Them

YOLKE’s fresh take on 70s suiting urges you to embrace your inner flower child. With their perfect proportions and oversized bow-style belt, our slim-flared corduroy jeans are precisely the type of trouser you can pull on with a printed silk cami and sunglasses when heading out to an alfresco lunch date, or a sun-washed Woodstock tee and baseball shoes for a spot of Sunday antiquing. Tuck in the matching blouse and add a smattering of chunky gold rings, à la Matilda Goad in last week’s issue of The Telegraph’s Stella magazine, for an ensemble made in match-a-malist heaven, or for added punch, lean into spring colour blocking and style all three pieces - our Belle Blouse, Bow Jean and Hilary Jacket - together. It’s your call!
