Princess of Wales yellow is about to go viral — shop the royal-approved summer trend

Think yellow is hard to wear? Kate Middleton is proof that you need the colour in your wardrobe.

Forget Barbie pink; this season, we're shopping Princess of Wales yellow (photos via Getty Images).

For those who follow trends, you're likely familiar with the term Barbiecore. The pink-on-pink aesthetic was a fashion staple in 2022, largely thanks to Greta Gerwig's highly-anticipated "Barbie" film.

And while we love a good Barbie pink, summer 2023 is all about Princess of Wales yellow.

Princess of Wales yellow (a term I just coined, thank you very much) is exactly as the name suggests — an aesthetic inspired by Kate Middleton's love of yellow.

Whether in mustard, canary, or gold Kate Middleton is a walking advertisement for the sunny colour palette (check out her latest yellow blazer look for proof).
