Vivid island colors were huge on the runways for spring, but bright yellow might be the most intimidating color to style. An easy way to work the cheery color into your wardrobe is with attention-grabbing accessories—let Rochelle Wiseman, Jessica Alba, and Fearne Cotton show you how to bring some spring sunshine into your look with well-styled bags, shoes, and scarves in punchy pineapple.
Tip #1: A yellow tote is the perfect sunny weather carry-all.
An easy way to brighten any outfit is with a canary yellow bag, and Rochelle Wiseman recently took to Twitter to show off the one she bought as her birthday present to herself. The singer styled it here in a wearable, adorable spring look composed of pieces that could easily go from street to beach. She wore a white biker jacket over a floral romper, stashing her stuff in an attention-grabbing oversized yellow tote.

Tip #2: Put some spring in your step with yellow espadrilles.
The streets of London may have been wet with April showers, but Fearne Cotton didn’t let that stop her from styling her jacket with sunny yellow espadrilles. Put some spring in your step with lemon sandals, pairing them with a faded chambray shirt like Cotton did to subtly work the yellow-and-aquamarine color-blocking trend.

No color pops quite like yolky yellow, as Jessica Alba demonstrated while walking in L.A. As the only colorful element in her entire outfit, Alba’s saffron scarf was like a ray of sunshine. Tie one on to transform your go-to winter blacks for spring, but don't forget that the effect is just as punchy with whites.
