What to call this color? When you’re searching for things like this online, try gold, yellow, mustard, and saffron, for a start; I’m sure that there are lots of outlandish color names that I missed. Why do companies believe that calling something “burnished autumn” is going to help potential buyers find their stuff?
This isn’t an easy color to wear, but it’s present in so many school colors that you see it fairly often in the US in the autumn. (if you’re from outside the US, please note that many people here take high school and college football – American football – very seriously, and dress in their school colors A LOT…)
So let’s see how this works!
I think it makes more sense to put the loafers here in the initial accessory “purchase,” don’t you?
The olive and mustard together work REALLY well, which isn’t surprising. They share a warm base, and a certain depth and intensity of color. And I think that for most people who like olive, mustard might be equally flattering…
Grey and mustard feel really balanced, to me. I found that these outfits “came together” with fewer accent pieces than usual. It’s not something that I can put my finger on, but when I tried to include mustard earrings, or a bracelet, it just felt too… mustardy…
I didn’t expect to like the mustard with this light brown, but I’m beginning to love it!
The navy and mustard looks great – if I were to ever return to my high school, these would be idea!
Brown and mustard (which here should be called gold – don’t ask me why) just scream AUTUMN to me… and that’s a lovely thing to contemplate…
This last grouping is difficult for me, because the black pieces are all things that I own. I don’t believe that I look good in mustard, but I do believe that this gorgeous scarf could help quite a bit; a beautiful scarf can tie things together in unexpected ways!
In the last ensemble, I moved the shoes around, and change up the order of the accessories. I did this partly to reflect how I might wear these pieces, and also just to demonstrate the options that you have when you add just a few “accent” pieces to your wardrobe.
It’s worth remembering that gold metal can work well as a supplemental accessory if you chose to add gold/mustard clothing to your wardrobe!
