In 2000, the British rock band Coldplay composed one of the most beautiful tributes to a color, the color yellow:

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
They were all yellow.

I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called “Yellow.”

The song, which was on the band’s debut album, became an international hit and put Coldplay on the map. And, perhaps, we adopted a newfound respect for the color yellow. While most of us associate yellow with sunshine, daffodils, and lemons, the psychology behind the color is rooted in mindfulness, intellect, optimism, and enlightenment. Undoubtedly our fast-paced days could always use a little more of these things. And the fashion world is paying attention. Kat Thomsen at Glamour, who’s on a campaign to crown “yellow as the new power color,” recently deemed it the summer color that looks good on everyone!

Continuing our Fashion Friday tradition of focusing on colors (see our feature on “Going Green for Spring”), we’ve scoured the Web to find some innovative accessories to weave a little bit of yellow into your summer style.

    While I can’t personally wear yellow, it is definitely having its moment – in interiors as well! Sunny way to start the weekend – thank you!
