Mustard Yellow is an “appetizing” choice for your Summer-to-Fall transitioning wardrobe. However, choose wisely because this shade is quite specific, and can be unflattering. A darker, richer yellow looks luxe and sophisticated, but also dramatic and earthy in chiffons and lace. Steer far away from the shockingly bright, unnatural shades like the color of a “Heinz” bottle. Materialized in fabric, this can look inexpensive and stark. Match your Mustard Yellow outfit with neutral accessories like nude or white. Black in small doses looks chic, but too much is a too aggressive contrast between the colors. For the daring, pink and navy are appropriate pop-colors that will compliment your look. A color to avoid at all cost? Unless you want to look like a McDonald’s advertisement, Red should be avoided. Go for a work-appropriate look with a mustard yellow two-piece a la Gucci. A little shift jacket paired with an A-line skirt looks vintage but fresh. For a more romantic, vacation-ready take on mustard yellow, choose a free-flowing dress or Chanel’s knit separates (a cozy companion for traveling). This color is optimistic and playful enough for summer, but warm enough to take you right into Fall.
