Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend!

I wore this yellow dress for Easter weekend, but with nude sandals and kept it very simple. This time around I wanted to pair it with bold shoes and spice things up. Yellow can be worn in so many ways and can look great on any skin tone. So how do you wear yellow?

  1. Pair it with bold colors like cobalt blue, red, orange, or even pink. Have fun with it, don’t be shy to pair bright yellow with other bright colors. I would stick to 3 or less bright colors or else you will look like a rainbow… and that’s a no no.
  2. Pair it with black and white. You can never go wrong with black or white… both colors go with anything. If you have a dress that’s a little bit on the girly side, you can always add some edge with black accessories (think booties, or leather) to offset a girly dress.
  3. Don’t be afraid to wear yellow during the winter. Yellow can be worn all year round, both bright yellow (which can be paired with an all black look to add drama) or a butterscotch yellow (which can be worn with earth tones such as burgundy or forest green).

There you have it! Pretty easy right? Now go buy something yellow and have fun styling different looks! When you do, make sure to tag me in your #OOTD so I can see.
