How To Wear Yellow

Yellow! From delicate, buttery hues to daring shades of dandelion and marigold, we’re seeing it everywhere this season. Wear a pop or go head-to-toe yellow—for a look that simply shines. Repeat after us: I can wear it. Yes, I can. We promise.

Oh, and here’s a color fact: yellow inspires mental clarity and is known to give the person wearing it a can-do attitude. Remember—like attracts like, and this color has got us totally upbeat!

HOW TO WEAR YELLOW WITH CONFIDENCE:

A yellow cami has the ability to brighten up an entire look. Wear it with white or blue denim, and keep it clean and simple with nude heels. Add a touch of gold with a bracelet or necklace—or feel free to do both! If you’re fearless when it comes to fashion, pile on those brilliant accessories!

We love yellow with French roast, light grey, bright white, navy and washed out denim. These color pairs = matches made in heaven!
How To Wear Yellow
If this high-impact hue is way out of your comfort zone, start with accessories. Small steps! Add a pale lemon watch or a sunshine-y handbag to your outfit. If even this feels too bold, try wearing a print with yellow surrounded by other colors. It’s all about finding a balance that works for you.
How To Wear Yellow
A yellow sundress or mini/maxi dress is a spring AND summer must-have. It’s subtle and classic. Try pairing the sundress with a ballet flat or wedge. Maxis look perfect with a boho-chic beaded sandal. Both looks can easily take you from day to night.
How To Wear Yellow
Warm skin tones should go for yellows with orange undertones. Cool skin tones should opt for a bluer shade like chartreuse. Still unsure if this sunny-side-up hue is right for you? Hold it up to your face and see whether it complements your complexion. Does it wash you out or brighten you up? Flaunt it—or move on!
