Why Yellow Makes a Great Fashion Statement


Color is ruling the runway and if there’s one color you need to add to your wardrobe, it’s yellow.

Some people shy away from yellow. They may think it’s not flattering to their skin tones or they may think it does not go with many other colors. I say fooey.

I have personally had yellow items in my wardrobe I could not live without.

If you are trying to add a splash of color to your wardrobe, here are some ways you can make yellow work for you.

Yellow Purses and Shoes

If you need to add color to an outfit, adding yellow accessories is the way to do it.

Bright yellow can add interest to black and white color schemes. Also, because it has distinct brownish hue, lighter yellows will work well with neutral tones.

Think of adding yellow shoes, handbags and jewelry to give your outfits a bit of pizzazz.

Yellow Dresses

Some may not be brave enough to wear all over yellow, but the color totally pops.

Admittedly, it is not suited for every skin tone, but it will work well for those with darker skin and some golden tones in their hair and skin. On the other hand, it may wash out those with pale or olive skin tones.

If you don’t think you have the right complexion for yellow, stay away from all over yellow looks and limit the color to accessories only.

Dresses are great because they are so easy to wear. If you are wearing a bright yellow dress, you can create a color block by adding red or black and white shoes and accessories. For softer yellows and golden yellows, neutrals will be your best bet.

Yellow Bathing Suits


Yellow bathing suits are great for the beach. The light, bright color looks terrific with a tan.

Although the same rules apply when it comes to complexion, because bathing suits tend not to surround the face, you don’t have to worry too much about a yellow bathing suit making you look washed out. The color is sure to turn some heads.

Yellow Prints


Another way to add yellow in to your outfits without completely committing is to wear a yellow print. The color can be worked into the outfit to make it stand out without overwhelming it.

You can choose a bold all over print such as a floral or limit it to a central yellow decal on the center of a t-shirt.

Yellow Jackets


A yellow jacket is another way to add a splash of color to your outfits. A yellow jacket can be added to jeans and a t-shirt, dressy dresses and anything in between. It will look great when picking up the yellow in your outfit or it will add a splash of color to black and white looks.

Yellow is a great look year-round. It brightens up a summer style and makes a great complement for neutral and jewel tones during the winter. How do you like to integrate yellow in your outfits?
