It’s the warmth of the light that brightens our days; the sand at the beach that softens our skin; the lemons that freshen the drinks to quench our thirsts. A symbol of happiness, positivity, energy and joy, yellow is the colour for summer.

While everything we just said sounds as sweet as a honey bee, when it comes to actually wearing this colour, it’s not always as easy as it seems. We’ve all been down that road where we’ve tried to make yellow work, but it just won’t. Case in point: after Kate Hudson showed up in that yellow dress in How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days we all went in search for an uber flattering, canary yellow, figure-skimming satin gown, only to find it doesn't really exist. It only worked on Andie Anderson in the movie because it’s Kate Hudson and she can pull off just about anything.

So, what do we do? Just admire yellow from afar, adding various yellow styles to our Wishlist but never following through to our cart? Nope. The foolproof way for everyone to wear yellow is not through shiny evening gowns but actually through our shoes.

Forget about what complements your skin tone, here are 6 yellow shoes that anyone can pull off, plus on-trend ways to work them into your wardrobe rotation. Just tap the image to see the full outfit.
