The world is divided into two kinds of people, as we see it, there are those who are ardent lovers of shades of mustard yellow and then those who wouldn’t even acknowledge it as a color worthy of owing in their wardrobe.
We hear our friends cooing various remarks like, “No, it just doesn’t work for me”, “ It’s too bright for my liking”, and some good ones like, “I don’t want to look like Big-Bird”.
Before you write off this overtly controversial color, give it a chance. Let us show you how you can make it your own. And since all your favorite brands are going to be stocking this shade to the rafters, you may as well indulge us a little and take a peek into how you can style this pungent shade of yellow.
When it comes to the right shades of mustard yellow, we are thinking softer bright than the bright golden ones. The right hue goes a long way in creating a look which is easy on the eyes and one that you feel comfortable in. The three key pieces of mustard yellow this season are a shift dress, skinny pants, and a printed top. All serving different wardrobe functions in their own perfect way.
A soft mustard yellow long shift dress or kurta can be made into the perfect sunday-funday outfit. Grab your pair of camel brown or black heels and twist the outfit with a thin belt if you’re short and a chunky belt if you’re tall. Accessorize in shades of golds or azure blue if you’re looking for some drama. When it comes to workplace dressing, pants are a good way to start with the color exploration. Pair your mustard skinny ankle-length pants with a black billowy top and black suede loafers or brogues. We saved the easiest for last, if you’re looking to break your mustard yellow virginity then a printed top is the way to go. Pair it with your favorite blue denim skinnies or skirt and you’re ready for summer.
There isn’t a better color to reflect your inner happiness and joy than this bountiful shade, so why not cast your blacks aside for a weekend and slip into some sunshine.
