Alexa, play Another Day of Sun!

Yellow is really the Kardashian of colours — it’s always photo-ready and it never arrives anywhere without a splash. However, if you’re not sure about wearing a flashy ray of sunshine on your low-key brunch date, consider some newer and wearable colour trends. Like maybe… the Samoan Sun?


For days when you’re yearning for a muted, cool-toned primary shade — a Samoan Sun-hued pick could serve you best. When the Pantone Color Institute released its colour trend report for Autumn/Winter 2022-2023 New York Fashion Week, it lined up quite a few restful tones along with some exuberant ones. The balanced, seasonless hue of the Samoan Sun is one of the most wearable shades of yellow and yet manages to be runway-worthy.

Not sure how to style this fresh colour? Here are a few pointers:

A semi-sheer sari

If you want the breathiness of the colour to shine through, pick a solid-hued statement number. This gorgeous yellow acts like the perfect canvas for you to create a look around it. A semi-sheer sari offers an easy translucence that makes this colour a lot more versatile for day-to-night purposes. From contrast blouses to dynamic prints — you can style it with anything.

Classic blouses

This Kolkata-based brand has an all-yellow blouse line featuring muted, earthy yellows. From a cotton chikankari Samoan Sun blouse to a brocade number, there’s something for everyone. Pair these gorgeous blouses with contrasting sarees to make the most of your OOTDs.

Voluminous dresses

The pastel-adjacent Samoan Sun can work wonders if you want to explore dramatic silhouettes, for daywear especially. This Samoan Sun number has easy pleats and a puffy sleeve. Made from cotton fabric, it’s perfect for the sultry Kolkata heat and the tea-length hemline is just right for monsoons.

Sunny sandals

We can wear a Kolhapuri anywhere but these vibrant yellow sandals make sure they are an ideal addition to your monochrome salwar suits or saris. They’re quirky, comfortable and can make quite a statement.


If you love anti-fit silhouettes, go for this Samoan Sun-hued oversized shirt and straight pants. The asymmetrical hem of the shirt gives you the opportunity to style it up or down based on the occasion.

Co-ord set

Everyone is going gaga over the intricate hakoba fabric so why not dip your toes in the trend? This co-ord set is playful, fun and flirty. The cropped ruffled top is interesting while the unique accents at the waistline of the pants add a stylised texture to the look.
