It seemed so unexpected how yellow became one of the biggest color trends this summer. Everyone from A-listers, fashion bloggers, and fashion street stars are incorporating the color to their summer wardrobe and it’s a wonderful surprise. Yellow is too bright and too loud of a color. And it’s certainly not something you want to wear if your playing it safe.
But like everything else, yellow has its own appeal, too. Yes, it’s definitely a bold color but because it’s a bold color that you don’t necessarily needs too much of it in your outfit to give that certain vibrant and pop that you will need.
Here are 12 awesome ways to wear yellow this summer.
Yellow and Brown
It’s seemed like the best color to pair with yellow is brown. They do possess some similar hues and brown harmonizes well with yellow in such a way that it tones it down and makes it totally wearable as a casual wear.
Yellow and Black
Everyone finds black and yellow to be a tricky color combination. For one thing, you might look like a bee or a caution sign. The trick is to stay away from two-toned pieces wherein the two colors it has are yellow and black. Also, stay away from stripes or checks that uses this color combo. Instead incorporate one yellow piece to a supposedly all-black outfit. The yellow will give a pop of color.
Yellow and White
This color combination reminds me so much of sunny side up and that’s good because it’s summer. A chicer way to wear this color combo casually is by choosing a yellow garment in a lighter shade. For a sleeker look, you can wear a brighter yellow that’s nearly orange.
Yellow and Gray
Yellow and gray is the least known combination and it must be known. The beautiful balance between the contrasting dullness of gray and the instant pop of yellow is stunning. You can wear this color combo whether the weather’s gloomy or sunny and you’d still look great.
Yellow and Purple
Two bright colors usually clash together. But what I like about these two colors is how perfect they are for the season. If you want to play it safe, choose either of the two colors to be bold while the other one remains muted.
Yellow and Coral
Another bright color combined perfectly. This is also perfect for the summer. For this, you have the option of whether you take a darker shade of yellow or coral and pair it with a brighter coral or yellow respectively.
Yellow and Blue
What I like most about yellow is that you can wear them with any bright color and it will still look great. Also, it’s a perfect match for blue since they are slightly complementary. You can take the route of Taylor Swift and give it a little touch of preppiness, too.
Yellow on yellow
Yes, ladies. You can sport a yellow on yellow outfit! The trick to this is to pair two different shades together.
Yellow and Leather
When you think of yellow and leather, you’d think of some similar guides with yellow and black. But you can head off to a more unexpected choice of leather in another color. Like, say, pink is great, right?
Yellow and Lace
There is an abundance of femininity and cheerfulness in an outfit consisting of yellow and lace. And that’s the kind of feeling you want to exert during summer: playful, happy, bright and completely female.
Yellow and Denim
You don’t necessarily have to incorporate too much of yellow in your outfit. A little touch of it, like yellow heels or yellow blazer, will instantly make your denim outfit less boring and normcore.
Yellow in the Office
You can go put a little brightness to your office wear all you want here. Just remember to find a piece that’s tailored and sleek. For instance, a tailored sailor pants or a plain yellow blouse in boxy silhouette.
For yellow prints, you can either go for a subtle attire that will look great for casual events or jump and take some fashion risks with mix printing separates that have yellow in them.
Yellow Bags and Accessories
Like I said, it’s not necessary to sport an all-out yellow. If you’re hesitant, try to start with the little things: shoes, bags, jewelries. Add them to your wardrobes and use them in your ensembles until you’ll be ready to wear an in-your-face yellow dress.
