How stinkin’ cute are these low heel “Beverly” pumps by Tory Burch? I don’t know what I like more: the stripes, the mustard hue, the bows, or the shape of the overall shoe. Actually, most of all I think I like the fact that one of my personal favorite fashion bloggers posted this to Tory Burch’s Facebook page (thanks Atlantic-Pacific!)
So cute. So stylish. So springy. Get ready.

Of all the colors in the rainbow, yellow is one that is probably most feared by even some of the most daring of fashionistas. Why? Because it’s intense, extremely vivid, it grabs attention right away, and some find it difficult to coordinate with other pieces. Indeed it is intense and vivid and odds are you’re going to turn your eyes to the yellow cardigan in the room of a sea of gray and ivory, but it’s not difficult to pull it off if you really put some effort into it.
Some people don’t think that yellow looks “right” on them. Although this may be nothing short of a valid statement, anyone can make the hue work if they know which shade of it compliments them the best. Daffodil yellow or the typical stark yellow you often associate with a classic Crayola crayon is not always the yellow you need to be sporting. A toned down yellow or one of less vibrance, often referred to as “mustard” can work when it’s regulated. If you’re a fair-skinned blue-eyed blonde, wearing a “buttery” yellow may not work in your best interest, but something more lemon or golden may work better for your complexion. A bright yellow button-down may not be professional or work appropriate, so pairing a white top with a yellow necklace or yellow heels with a very neutral outfit will give you the burst of color you need without being overpowering or making people squint when

they look at you. I wouldn’t ever recommend a yellow pant at all but a skirt or shorts in a more subtle shade would be nice when worn with a navy or gun metal shirt.
Mixing yellow with other bright colors or wearing too much of it without properly breaking it up (unless it’s a yellow special occasion dress or romper) may get you an eye roll of disapproval by those passionate about their fashion. Yellow is fun and can be very pretty but like with orange, it’s one of those colors that you need to be careful with how it’s worn and you need to figure out how it best suits you before spontaneously throwing on some wild yellow pieces topped off with other colorful accessories. I personally think that there is nothing cuter than a yellow pea coat or cropped jacket with big buttons down the front. You can’t go wrong if you don’t approach it wrong. It’s a great summer shade to take advantage of while you can and in case you didn’t know, yellow is quite often associated with happiness so wear it and smile 🙂
