What: A flirty pair of bright yellow high-waisted shorts with lace-up details on front and back.
Who: GUESS was established in 1981 by the Marciano brothers, who traded the South of France for Southern California and used their European sensibility to reimagine American denim. Bloomingdale’s was the first department store to embrace the fledgling brand, ordering two dozen pairs of jeans, which proceeded to sell out in a matter of hours. Today, Guess is a global lifestyle brand creating everything from watches to fragrance to ready-to-wear.
Why: Yellow is so under-utilized in most people’s wardrobes, which is crazy because it is such a happy, mood-elevating color, and much easier to wear than you might think, especially in richer hues, like this one, which will flatter just about any skin tone.
