In the midst of this gloomy winter, I’m excited to see that yellow is starting to pop into the stores for spring. Designers have gone crazy for this happy hue that has the power to make both the wearer and others feel enthusiastic, confident and optimistic. Yellow is a strong color. The key to dressing in yellow without feeling overwhelmed is to:
1. Get the Right Shade
This year you’ll find yellow in many different shades from marigold to sunny yellow, pastel yellow and chartreuse. It all about getting the right shade for you. If you have warm ivory skin and gold based hair, go for a sunnier yellow. If you have cool pink skin and ash hair, then more of an ice yellow or pastel yellow is better.
2. Balance Yellow with a Darker Color
If it feels too bright to wear all yellow, then balance yellow with a darker color or wear it as part of a pattern. Here’s a sporty top that reads yellow but has lots of others colors in it to soften it up.
3. Pair Yellow with Neutrals or Pastels
Some yellows are as bright as lemons, and in this case you can lessen the effect by pairing yellow with neutral accessories. This citrus yellow spring dress looks softer when paired with a blush purse and nude shoes.
Yellow and blush are one of the most popular color combinations this spring and will make you look instantly updated.
4. Wear as an Accessory
Yellow is a positive color. Even a small dash of it up by your face will give you life. This pretty yellow scarf with the cute pompoms is a great example of how this perky hue can make you shine!
Do you like yellow? Would you wear it? Let me know.
