Why Wear Yellow?

Yellow items represent joy, happiness, positivity, and honour. It can also refer to cowardice, childish youthfulness, or caution. During Covid 19, I chose to wear purple and colours that made me feel happy. When I see women here in Made In Italy wearing yellow. I see them not as coward messages but as women who want to stand out and let the sunshine into their hearts.
