Yellow, yellow, and more yellow. The color yellow was all over the runways for this summer. Designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Calvin Klein, had yellow dresses, blouses, skirts, scarves, hats, shoes, and handbags. Just about anything you can wear or carry with you came in the color yellow. Most of the designers opted for the bright yellow, but others took it a little softer with more of a paler yellow. You may be thinking that this is one fashion trend that you want to stay far away from, but done in the right way, yellow can be fabulous.
When you look at the runway fashions, they had bright yellow pieces that were a vivid yellow and not a neon yellow. Avoid neon yellow colors so that you don’t look like you arrived from the 80’s or you came from the local construction site wearing your safety gear. Gold tones and lemon colored pieces are a good choice as well. There are also certain colors that yellow should not be paired with. If you choose to pair your yellow with black, be sure that it is done in a sophisticated way or else you may end up looking like a bumblebee. Pair yellow with purple, gray, navy blue, and white. Think about steering clear of pairing yellow with pink or tan.
It is rather easy to take this runway fashion trend and apply it to your real-life wardrobe. If you are not sure about the color yellow, then start off small with a pair of yellow sandals . They can add a pop of color to your outfit without being too out there.
If you feel more daring then go for the yellow dress or the yellow blouse with trousers or a skirt. Yellow clothing can be casual or more formal. A plain yellow t-shirt can look great with a pair of boot cut jeans for a day of shopping.
The key to wearing yellow is to find the right shade that matches your skin tone and hair and that you can feel confident in. Some women may like more of the gold tones while other women want the vivid lemon color.
