For many of us, yellow feels like an inherently difficult color, but never discount the impact (and the fun!) that you could have with a yellow pedicure, or yellow sandals… but you can always wear the image of the daffodil in silver – no worries about unflattering yellow!
And I’m convinced that the flower in the middle of that very bright scarf is a narcissus…
Disclaimer – Yes, I’m using the same pants and shoes for most of these outfits. This is NOT because I’m bone-deep lazy (although post-flu, that could be worth considering!), but to show the versatility of these neutral pieces as a foil for a variety of accent colors. I’m a firm believer that investing in a core of neutral pieces pays off in ways which will surprise you!
When you wear yellow and black together, you might think bumblebees, or the Pittsburgh Pirates/Steelers/Penguins, but I don’t think that either of those is a good reason to avoid wearing them together! The additional colors in the scarf help diffuse that sort of feeling, I think.
I love yellow and navy, but I had to introduce a little bit of pink to keep it from looking TOO much like my high-school colors! The pink would make this sweater more flattering for many of us, too.
When brown feels too… dark? yellow is a perfect antidote…
If you love yellow but hesitate to wear it, how about a yellow bag? There are some great ones around, and it wouldn’t at all be a question of flattering your face. Maybe it won’t go with anything – so what? If you love it, do it….
This is an outfit for a day that feels like warm spring in your heart, but slightly cool spring on the thermometer.
Yellow is great to brighten up the deep richness of moss green…
I don’t know if I’m convinced that I want to start wearing yellow, but I can certainly admit that I madly enjoyed finding all of these pieces – that must mean something!love,
